    The enthusiasm with which we had taken the entrance tickets (cost per adult 35 myr) was dampened by the expectation of the tour during which we read of all animal species that live in dark caves ... we almost fear to enter; then a friendly guide, gave us hard hats and flashlights and adventure began ... exactly his instructions the visit became quite fascinating, at one point really the total dark! Don't give up because in Italy the caves of Castellana grotte are much more fascinating but this place is definitely worth the visit here in Kuala, easily and cheaply reached from the city center by metro.

    Mediocre at best. A very tourist-friendly cave with no real feel of adventure and so heavily explored that most of the wildlife has hidden itself away into the recesses and less accessible parts of the cave. You can always hear the bats which is interesting and it is nice to be in the pitch-black parts of the cave. Unfortunately, the curse of randomly assigned tour groups means you will likely/inadvertently find yourself with a person who has some discrete flashing like on a piece of technology that spoils the pitch black sections or a child or loud adult that ruins the ambience of the cave. Though I had decent experience, it was not exciting or particularly interesting, especially when compared to less commercial caves you can visit in other parts of South Asia.

    Seemed like an interesting activity but they didn't accept Credit card so I couldn't attend. Tours are priced at 35 for adults and 25 for Child and last 45 minutes. They provide helmets and flash lights. The adventure Tour is for ages 12 and above only and priced at 80 per person with prior Booking required

    A 45 min tour. Excellent for kids because it is educational. They never get scare. Tour guide is very professional. They will give you helmet and flashlights. A must go location in Batu Caves.

    The tour guide is very friendly, very cool & very professional. Lot's of tiny creatures and history in the cave. I even learned more about what's inside of the cave. It was great experience.
