In 2017, we introduced a full day guided tour from Oban and it proved to be a bit hit. Commencing from when you meet our guide in Oban, all arrangements will be taken care of leaving you free to relax and enjoy the beauty of your destination and the day ahead. Our minibus is perfect for small groups and individuals. As we are catering for small numbers it allows us to provide a bespoke service, aiming to accommodate your needs where possible.
The mini bus is brand new, with passenger air conditioning and sufficient space for small amounts of luggage.
“A fab experience enhanced by a good leader!”

We did the full trip starting in Oban with Staffa Trips today, led by the lovely Archie. It was a long day (7.30am ferry) but totally worth it! Met Archie at Oban, crossed over to Craignure, them drove to Fionnphort for boat ride to Staffa... It was cold and wet to start, but even so, exhilarating! Make sure you bring plenty of Layers and waterproofs, binoculars if you have them, and plenty of film - Staffa island, Fingals Cave, the puffins (among various bird life) will keep you busy... And Iona is a gem also and the perfect place to relax with a drink and soak in the spectacular views.
The tour was well organised and left you with plenty of time to explore each island - would certainly recommend to anyone going there.
“Review of the new Full-Day tour from Oban to Staffa and Iona”

I just visited Scotland in May along with family and stayed in Oban for three days. We knew before arriving we wanted to do a day trip to Iona and Staffa, but had initially planned to book each leg ourselves (so glad we didn't do this). I saw a brochure for Staffa Trips and easily booked online for three people. This tour departed from Oban on the ferry in the morning at 0730 and returned about 12 hours later. We got 3.5 hours on Iona and 1.25 on Staffa, and were guided the whole way by Archie, who is a fantastic guide! All the Staffa Trips team were very friendly and knowledgeable about the history and current state of both islands, the seas around, and Oban as well.
--The ferries from Iona broke when we were supposed to leave, so we missed our connecting ferry on Mull at the end of the day. Archie took us to Duart Castle and drove us down to see other small sights on Mull, and we had a great time despite missing our ferry (we did catch the next one!)
--All tickets were given to us, the transitions from ferry to car to ferry etc were smooth, and we had ample time at each destination.
--Our overall tour group was only 6 people and so we had a more personalized experience than you would with the larger Staffa Tours. I could not recommend Staffa Trips more highly! Definitely book one of their tour options when you go to Iona or Staffa! I've included some photos which are not just pretty shots but hopefully will help give a sense of the tour experience.
