We travelled on Mull to Iona and Staffa on Tues 15th July. We had the most funniest, cheeriest driver. (Richard) I think his name was. He lives on Mull and he was very informative about the Islands, and about the wildlife and local information. Lovely clean coaches with air-conditioning, as we needed it that day as it was so hot...

excellent trip to Iona via ferry and bus across the island of Mull. The driver had constant information and shared his philosophy about life in Scotland and on the isles.

Visit to Mull, Staffa and Iona. Scenery absolutely beautiful. Coach driver on Mull was funny and informative on our journey across Island. The guys on the ferry to Staffa and Iona were nice lads who pointed out places of interest along the way. Worth taking this tour.

The voucher must be traded in at the West Coast office ( near the ferry terminal in Oban) for a strip of tickets: ferry from Oban to Mull,... More

Buy a ticket from Westcoast. Motorscon the sea front near the town centre. We were then taken by a large Cal- Mac ferry over to Mull then picked up by coach to take us across the island for the next leg of the journey. The coach driver was very numerous and kept us all very entertained and informed about the... More

I don't mean money either, the fare for the tour was very reasonable considering the time, ferry cost, and people involved in getting you out there. What I do mean is MOTION sickness! I took a recommended dose plus 1extra tablet because I know how very bad I get it, it didn't work that well. I was able to make... More

My wife and I are not very fit, but when we saw Staffa on the Three Islands Tour, we knew that we had to make the supreme effort and climb to the top. Even though there were no puffins where we went (we went up the middle and should have gone right from the top of the stairs towards the... More

Calmac (the ferry co.) are efficient and run a punctual, clean and efficient service from Oban to the Island. We decided to miss Staffa but just go to Mull and then take the bus around Mull (1 hr) to the quick Iona ferry crossing. Just lovely. True - the weather was fairly foul - but strangely we discovered that Iona... More

I'll get to the tour itself, but want to mention our booking sequence first as a suggestion when making your plans. Staying in Oban, we went by the West Coast Tours office the night before we wanted to go out. We weren't sure about whether to do the Staffa portion of the tour because we had heard that the ferry...

As part of my resolution to see more of my own country this year I decided to book on this trip. I am really glad I did. The drive across Mull was very enjoyable and the commentary from the driver (Stevie I think) was great. Next was the boat ride to Staffa where we say seals. Fingal's Cave was as... More
