Our City Sightseeing open-top bus tours operate in Glasgow, Oban and Bute and offer expert commentary and the ability to hop-on and off. We also operate a fast passenger ferry link between Campbeltown and Ballycastle in Northern Ireland called the Kintyre Express which offers visitors the chance to combine both the west coast of Scotland and the rugged Causeway Coast of Northern Ireland.

Very unprofessional ,rude female office staff member went out of her way to ruin our while Oban experience. How good the scenery was is not a review of the tour operation skills ..or clearly lack of of this bunch.

Did the 3 isles day trip from Oban, which takes in Mull, Staffa & Iona. The trip was far better than expected and really well organised. We had to collect our tickets from the office by the port and then head over to catch the CalMac ferry to Mull. Immediately off the ferry is a coach waiting to take you on the approx 1 hour journey to Fionnphort where a boat will be waiting for you. The coach trip is full of beautiful scenery and there’s great commentary from the driver throughout the journey. We had a few minutes to grab a quick coffee, snack and toilet stop at the cafe before leaving for Staffa. It takes approx 30 mins to reach Staffa, which is a fabulous little island. Fingal’s cave is well worth the visit, absolutely amazing. We were also at the right time of year to see the puffins. We just needed to sit patiently on the cliff for a short while before they flew up to join us. From there, it was over to Iona, approx 30 minutes journey. Unfortunately due to Covid we couldn’t see the Abbey but we did see the nunnery. From Iona, there’s a 10 minute boat ride back to Fionnphort, where you pick up the coach to head back for the return ferry to Oban. All in all, a great day out.

We took the Mull and Iona Tour, a 9 hour day. We found the whole thing to be very well run. We exchanged our prepaid vouchers (I made reservations before our trip) for tickets the day before. (I would recommend doing that rather than exchanging them the morning of the tour, just in case they get busy.) The ferry trip to Mull was enjoyable. It was a bit cold outside, but the views were worth it. We really enjoyed the bus ride across Mull. It is a beautiful island, the driver's skill at navigating the narrow road was impressive, and his commentary was informative and entertaining. After a little over two hours on Iona, it was time to repeat the trip in reverse. I'd like to go back and visit Staffa while the puffins are there.

Went on a very full 12 hour trip to Mull then coach to Staffa and then Iona and back. Was well organised and the coach driver was friendly and informative. Iona and Staffa have always been on my "must do" list and it lived up to expectations. Everything was just stunning and amazing but better in dry weather. Thought it was decent value too but it is a very long day. We didn't get back into Oban until 8pm and you need to take warm layers of clothing especially for the trip to Staffa. The only places to get drinks and food is the ferry from Oban and on Iona so you should really take their advice to take your own.

Tour was packed with scenery, wildlife, information and memories! Did the Three island tour and all segments were well organized. all three islands were unique and there was some time to explore on your own. Booked trip on line and everything worked seamlessly. Would recommend this trip to anyone.
