I'm not quite sure why people like this tour so much? It's a full day (expensive) trip with only 2 hours on Iona! Most of the day is spent traveling on ferries and buses. We were rounded up on to ferries/buses as if we were cattle. Our coach had uncomfortable small seats and a toilet which was out of order. Our tour guide wasn't all that great and there wasn't much to see on Mull (no eagle sightings for us!). On the return trip from Iona there was no commentary at all. Iona itself is beautiful, but can't see much of it in only two hours. By the time the Abbey tour was finished we only had 45 mins left on the island. Not enough time to have a sit down lunch anywhere. We wanted to take a quick taxi to the other side of the island, but were told that there's only one taxi on Iona and the driver was on holiday. We grabbed quick sandwiches from a shop since the kids were starving, but there was no place to sit and eat. Iona is worth visiting but definitely don't do a day tour from Oban!
