I love finding out about places and the guide was full of information and stories as we visited every interesting place and view in Oban (it didn't take too long...). A great way to start a visit as it let's you know where everything is.More

kiwieric, Hi again, Thanks for your additional feedback. Glad you enjoyed the tour. We look forward to seeing you again. Kind regards, The Stewart Island Experience Team
The staff were very efficient but the vehicle would not be legal in the UK. There was a bald tire, very noisy steering column and general bad driving feel. We only rented for 4 hours and drove a total of 15 km. we did not complain but we're glad to hand it back. Be careful if you rent.
Hi CaptTravel, We are sorry to hear about your concerns with your rental car. We take safety very seriously and would have immediately checked the car had we been aware of any potential issues. Since your visit, we have updated our fleet of cars on Stewart Island but I can assure you that our vehicles have always been regularly serviced and undergo the strict independent vehicle inspection regime (COF), every six months.

We were lucky to get on. If you are a family group you need to book as seating is limited in the minibuses. I saw more of the Island than when I lived there 60 years ago. Of course, there are several kilometres of sealed road nowadays. We had an interesting and informative driver. It does cost a bit ($37 each) which makes it quite a price for a family group but you're only here once as a group so make the most of your time in Oban and enjoy this tour.
rosieterry, Nice to see you return to Stewart Island after a long time. Thanks for your feedback. Kind regards, The Stewart Island Experience Team
Best way to get a quick snapshot view of Oban & surrounding area, and with a very knowledgeable driver (who also somehow worked out we were on honeymoon)!
Thebin16, Thanks for taking time to post a review so that other travellers can benefit. We do pride ourselves on our high standards including knowledgeable drivers and guides.
Thanks for our other reviews too and hope you had a great honeymoon!
Kind regards, The Stewart Island Experience Team.
We thoroughly enjoyed the bus tour around the bays. Just wish we had done it on the first day so we had a better feel for what we could go back and do.
Kylie was a great guide, passionately informative about her island home. I could’ve happily added another hour to the tour as there was more I wanted to see.
But next time I will stay longer and explore more.
Raewyn7150, Thanks for your feedback. We look forward to seeing you again. Kind regards, The Stewart Island Experience Team
Best tour to know and get around stewart island. Duration of the tour is just right. We got the complete experience of places in the island,local landmarks,idea of the island community. Would have been hard, if otherwise went around independently. Had a nice and friendly guide,Rachel.
