Your half-day tour begins with pickup from your centrally located hotel in Kuala Lumpur. Depart in the morning by car or minivan to suit your private group, and relax on the short drive to your first destination: Batu Caves.

The statue of Lord Murugan greets you at the stairway to the Temple Cave; your guide shares fascinating tales and walk with you up the steep stairs toward the Ramayana Cave. Explore this limestone wonder at your own pace and descend for a refreshing coconut drink when you’re ready.

Your next stop is Selayang Hot Spring, where you can soak your tired feet in the healing mineral waters. It's a popular place frequented by locals. Then continue on to Kanching Falls for a look at the impressive seven-tiered waterfall. You decide how long you'd like to linger in the shade, scramble on the boulders, or take a refreshing dip.

If you'd like, order the Malaysian national dish, nasi lemak, for lunch (own expense); it consists of coconut rice and chili paste served in pandan leaf. Then head back to your vehicle for the return drive to your hotel and receive more recommendations from your guide.

Excellent Tour

Excellent knowledge tour & service provided by out guide Hoopy. The great thing about a private tour is the ability to choose an earlier start time to fit your itinerary & never rushed.. We choose a 08:30 start to avoid the busy crowds at the Batu Caves. Great to see the steps & the caves with minimal people in them. As we were leaving the crowds began to come as the big tour buses arrived. Took my parents who were in their 70’s & they had no problems with the steps & everything was done at our own pace, so never rushed. We had plenty of time to see all sights & our guide took & sent pictures to us afterwards. Would highly recommend.

Champ was a great tour guide and started well by being on time. His local knowledge was very informative and easy to understand. Going to Batu Caves early was a good idea as it was getting busy by the time we finished. Definitely recommend the private tour as it was a great way to get around rather than a bus tour.

We had an amazing experience visiting the Batu Caves made all the more special by our wonderful guide Ramesh. His knowledge and obvious passion for the site and Malaysia in general made the day a highlight of our holiday
