Why people love Daytrip
23 Oct, 2023 Seville to Tarifa Trip - Excellent Experience We were visiting Seville with the next stop on our vacation being Tangier, Morocco. Unfortunately, there were no trains to take us from Seville to the Port of Tarifa to board the ferry to Morocco. We could take the train to another city, and then a bus, or take a bus direct to Tarifa. Neither appealed to us and a friend recommended DayTrip for a personal driver to take us to the port. The booking experience on their website was extremely easy to follow and they even offered several tours we could add to our trip. Unfortunately, the timing didn't line up and we had to go straight to the port. A few days in advance, I received an email with the driver's information, his car information, and a picture. The morning we were checking out, our driver arrived early but we got locked out of our room with our luggage inside due to a faulty door lock. Our day started out very stressful, but our driver, Pedro, assured us that we were not an inconvenience and that we had plenty of time to make it to the port. After resolving the issue with the door lock, Pedro took our bags and loaded up the car. He was dressed very professionally and had water waiting for us. During our drive, he offered some small talk and pointed out a few interesting sites. He also stopped at a roadside cafe for my friend to get a much-needed coffee. He drove safely for the entire three hours and never once made us feel unsafe. I am so grateful we chose to use DayTrip rather than the bus. First, we would have missed the bus because of our door issue, and second, it was much less stressful being able to sit in the back of a nice car while being driven the three hours. Pedro was so very kind to us the entire trip. Yes, it was more expensive to use DayTrip than the bus, but the benefits outweighed the cost. We were able to decide what time we wanted to be picked up, if we wanted, we could have added additional stops, and we could relax rather than sit amongst 2-3 dozen other people on a cramped bus. Had we not already had transportation scheduled for our trips in Morocco, we would have booked DayTrip again.
23 Oct, 2023 Fantastic I was a bit unsure on how it would all work out, but expectations were definitely exceeded. Ettore was absolutely awesome and very knowledgeable on the region. I also want to note that the car was incredibly nice and far surpassed what I thought we would be driving in. I will definitely be using this service again in the future and will recommend to my friends and family.
23 Oct, 2023 Beautiful experience! The hilight of our trip! We treated family and friends to a sunset cruise along the Amalfi coast before our wedding. Not only was it beautiful, but Amelia worked with me prior to the excursion to make our experience personalized to our group. She gave me the exact information to give our driver to get us to the right meeting point, and made recommendations of timing according to the weather that day. On the actual tour, Amelia provided excellent service and took good care of us. She even had a little “I Do” balloon for us on the boat which was above and beyond! She had drinks, snacks, and blankets ready for us. She also pointed out various attractions along the coast and told us more about the area.
22 Oct, 2023 Perfect Experience Our experience with Theodor F driving from Varna, Bulgaria to Bucharest, Romania was absolutely wonderful! He was prompt, friendly, safe, and courteous. There wasn’t anything that could’ve been better. He was very pleasant to converse with along the drive and we learned so much about life in Romania / Bucharest. We made a planned stop along the way and he again shared insights into the Rock-Hewn Churches of Ivanovo. Everything went perfectly as planned. This is our third time using Daytrip while traveling in Europe and every experience has been superb.

Batu Caves Claimed
Batu Caves is a an iconic and popular tourist attraction in Selangor. Site of a Hindu temple and shrine, Batu Caves attracts thousands of worshippers and tourists, especially during the annual Hindu festival, Thaipusam. A limestone outcrop located just north of Kuala Lumpur, Batu Caves has three main caves featuring temples and Hindu shrines. Its main attraction is the large statue of the Hindu God at the entrance, besides a steep 272 climb up its steps to finally view the stunning skyline of the city centre. Monkeys frolic around the caves, and it is a popular spot for rock climbing enthusiasts. Paintings and scenes of Hindu Gods can also be seen in the Ramayana Cave.
Most tourist has always known the famous 272 steps leading to the entrance of the Sri Subramaniar Swamy Temple in Batu Caves as being in the very common red and white colours that are associated with most Hindu temples. However, visitors of the renowned temple received a pleasant surprise that could only be described as a feast for the eyes after the sombre stairs were transformed into an Instagram-worthy background with a myriad of colours seemingly overnight. The colourful new steps are already proving popular with Instagrammers, but the religious site is also a pilgrimage for many Hindus and features a massive golden statue of the god Lord Murugan.
The Dark Cave of Batu Caves : The Dark Dominion in the City
Located 1 kilometre north of Kuala Lumpur and rising 326 metres above sea level is Batu Caves Hill, where two worlds coexist, so distinct and contrasting even to an untrained eye. One world exists on the surface of this limestone hill spanning an area of only 1.56 square kilometres. It is nonetheless the most prominent limestone hill in Selangor. Limestone is a hotbed of many rare plants. As many as 269 species of plants have been discovered here, constituting about a quarter of plant species found in the limestone ecosystem in West Malaysia, of which 48 species are endemic to the peninsula.
Meanwhile, another world is tucked inside the cave, engulfed in pitch darkness, and has never seen the light of day. Batu Caves Hill has some 20 caves and its biggest and most well-known cave is the Temple Cave, and beside it is the Dark Cave. Scientific studies of the cave can be traced back as early as 1896 by a European named Ridley. Batu Caves is among the most researched caves in Southeast Asia today.
How to get there
The Dark Cave of Batu Caves is located about 1km north of Kuala Lumpur. Its entrance is situated beside the Temple Cave. Visitors have to walk up the long staircase before reaching the entrance on the left of the stairs. Due to limited parking spaces, visitors are advised to take public transport or reach early, especially on public holidays. To take a bus, hop on Bus No. 11 from Bangkok Bank near Central Market; to take a train, just board KTM Komuter and alight at the Batu Caves stop and walk to the main entrance.
Educational Tour (45min) : Open every day. Mondays – Fridays (10am – 5pm); Saturdays, Sundays & Public Holidays (10:30pm – 5:30pm). Advance booking via email is required for groups.

About This Tour
Located just 8 miles away from the city of Kuala Lumpur in the Gombak district within the state of Selangor lies Batu Caves which is Malaysia’s most visited Hindu shrine built in honor of Shiva’s son, Lord Murugan and also the venue for the annual Hindu festival known as Thaipusam, held on the full moon between January and February. It’s a festival celebrated by the Tamil community and its devotees named the Kavadi carriers who subject themselves to seemingly excruciating rituals mainly, body piercings). And although the sight is rather unpleasant for first-time visitors, it is a ritual that only devotees go through to attain a trance-like state which prevents them from feeling pain.
The Batu Caves are known for the limestone rock inside which is more than 400 million years old. We’ll guide you through a comprehensive tour of the Caves’ and the many Hindu shrines around the area, including the wonderful main temple which is over a century old.Our three hours tour include stops at Batu Caves temple, the world-renowned Royal Selangor Pewter factory and they can opt to watch batik craftsmen perform a traditional batik painting demonstration and get to admire the
For more of an adventure, you can climb the ancient stairs leading to the entrance of the cave system (272 steps in all), to get a magnificent view of Kuala Lumpur when you reach the top. The crowning glory of the Hindu temple is the gigantic statue of Muragan standing atop the entire structure. At 140 feet, this is the second tallest statue devoted to any Hindu deity and it’s the largest statue of a deity in the world.Beside this you will also have the chance to discover traditional batik painting and visit the famous Royal Selangor Pewter factory.
