There is also a shrine to Guan Yin, the Goddess of Mercy. Built by KL’s Hainanese community in 1894, which is set on a hill and offers wonderful views of the city. Enjoy a short stop at a Sikh gurdwara before visiting the Brickfield Church and returning to your hotel.

This tour was a great way to see what we wanted to see for our first trip to Kuala Lumpur. We wanted to spend a half day seeing religious sites. The tour was very flexible and accommodating, since we only wanted to go the Caves, the National Mosque, lunch and Central Market. We were traveling with 3 teenagers and 2 grade school kids with 2 families and this was more than enough for the kids. Make sure though you cross reference Hindu and Muslim religious holidays and festivals with your trip. We lucked out and nothing was going on. But the guide told us for one Hindu festival week, the Caves are jammed with worshipers. The tour guide was also very helpful. He did not come with us in the Caves or the Mosque. The Mosque has their own tour guides and the Caves really didn't need one. But I recommend you do research on the caves. Lunch was in a very local Indian restaurant. The food was great but if you or your kids are not very adventurous you might want to pack snacks

Entertaining and knowledgeable driver, and on time for pick up. Never felt rushed throughout and had a very enjoyable lunch at local restaurant. Would recommend anytime
