Full description

Following pickup, begin your day at the Royal Selangor, which features the largest and most modern pewter factory in the world. It is also world-renowned for its high quality and craftsmanship.

On your factory tour, learn about the different processes at this factory such as casting, filing, polishing, soldering, hammering and engraving. Next, stop at Batik Factory to see how batik is designed and printed. Next, head to the limestone hills of the Batu Caves, comprised of three caverns and several smaller caves. Pass a towering statue of Murugan as you climb 272 steps into a cave shrine, and follow vivid murals of Hindu scripture. Spot the macaques that live on the lush cliff face. End your day on the city outskirts by driving past local villages. The tour ends with a drop-off back at your Kuala Lumpur City Centre hotel.

It was so amazing I did not want it to stop. The guide (Mac) is a very funny man yet very interesting, so much knowledge. The driver (Mirror) is so nice, so considerate of everybody in the bus. The places we visited were very interesting and the people were very nice. It was one of my best days in Kuala Lumpur, I am still in the bus as I am writing this, I miss it already… thank you

Mac and Isaac were excellent! The transport bus was clean, comfortable and the aircon was great. Mac was very knowledgeable and passionate about the different sites we went to see and was very helpful if we needed anything. Exceptional value for money, I would highly recommend booking with these two

The guide Mac was very knowledgable of the areas we were visiting and made the tour very easy going and funny. We got given bottles of water throughout the tour which was nice as it was hot but also having to go up over 200 steps you’ll definitely need water.
