We received advance notice about what to expect once we arrived in Batam. We had a wonderful guide standing with a sign to welcome us. She did a WONDERFUL job of taking us place to place. Great overview of the area.

Its worth if you have to spare one whole day dedicated for this. the place is good to know the flavor of mixed indonesia-singapore culture.
However the food and massage are worth i feel. the places to visit in the itinerary are not so great including the bridge. still if you have time, you can have a look.

The tour was smooth and fun, and the tour guide was accommodating. But the massage was quite terrible and too hard to get a relaxing experience.

Overall this is an average experience. The Ferry trip is nice and comfortable. The island of Batam is not a typical tourist island; city scenery is not driven by tourism. Lunch was very disappointing, especially since Batam is known for cheap seafood dishes; the serving was very little and it was difficult to find meat in the small crab dish we got. The visit to the temple was okay, but we seemed to have spent too much time there. The massage experience was probably the best part of this deal. The visit to the cake place was a fiasco; it was just a store that sold the cake. The coffee factory was interesting but it was more really meant to be a crash course in the different bean styles and then a sales opportunity. The tour guide did an excellent job though. I believe this experience could become an excellent one if these issues are somehow improved.
