We booked the early bird tour that visits Mull, Staffa and Iona. Around £180 for a family of 5 for a 10 hour trip. The weather was perfect for us, a major factor in making the day a success. Beware, you must largely fend for yourself, especially making sure you make the departure from Oban to Mull on time. Once... More

Thank you very much for your review of the Early Bird Three Isles Tour. It is a popular tour with those looking to beat the crowds by heading off early but does involved scheduled services rather than the coach with a guide so we're glad that our staff were on hand to offer guidance and you managed to navigate the...

We had arranged, through Classic Britain, a 3 night break in Oban, which was wonderful. We had decided that we would also like to visit Mull an Iona and when I check the West Coast Tours web site saw we could also visit Staffa on the same tour so booked our tickets online and visited the Tours office when we...

Thank you for your great review and we're glad you had such a good time. Our drivers develop their own commentary and don't have any specific training as we like the fact that they all have a slightly different theme or areas that they cover during their commentary meaning that returning customers can listen to something new each time they...

The whole trip was amazing, started by getting the ferry to Mull and then a scenic route drive on the coach through Mull to the Staffa tour boat where we headed to Fingals cave and the Isle of Staffa! Spent an hour on Staffa and then got the boat back to the Isle of Iona where we had two and... More

Fabulous full day out. Spectacular scenery and entertaining commentary on the bus from Craignure to Fionnphort on Mull. Crossed on ferry to Iona where we had two hours which gave us time to explore the island and the Abbey. Smaller boat took us from there to Staffa, which was probably the highlight of the trip for us. The island is... More

Thank you for your review and we're delighted you had such a good time. To see the Puffins we recommend that you visit no later than the end of July as it's usually in early August when they head back to sea. More

We decided on the full day trip and what a full day we had. First, perfect weather- warm & sunny! We purchased tickets in advance (highly suggested), arrived promptly as instructed at the ferry pier and took the ferry to Mull where Richard the coach driver amused us with his commentary. He dropped us at the Iona ferry to visit... More

We booked the Staffa Tour through the Internet and received a email confirmation with rough detail. In the email, it only mentioned the departure time (9:50 on Sunday) which is not specified as the boarding time of the Ferry. When we arrived at the Ferry pier at 9:46, the ferry has already left... We asked a staff at the Ferry... More

We're really sorry to hear about your experience as I'm sure you would have had a great time if you'd gone on the tour. Can you let me know who you booked it through? I ask this because if it was through Westcoasttours.co.uk you would have redeemed your voucher for tickets at our office in Oban where our staff would... More

We were a bit hesitant to sign up for the Three Island tour-- it is a long day-- but none of us regretted our decision. Yes we were lucky that the weather was sunny and warm, but we did wait until we arrived in Oban before choosing the day to maximize the chance for the best conditions. The ferries and... More

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.
