Morocco’s biggest city and commercial capital, Casablanca is the Maghreb’s largest port, and busier than Marseilles, on which it was modelled by the French. Casablanca’s most iconic sight, the Mosquée Hassan II, is not to be missed. It also features the only Jewish museum in the Muslim world. However the city’s true charm remains the Mauresque and Art Deco architecture built during the colonial period.

Like a painting. The port of Santa Cruz de Tenerife welcomes cruisers ashore on its ramblas (wide, tree-lined avenues) that lead to the central Plaza de España, where the Francoist architecture finds itself a national expression. If you explore to the old town of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, you come across churches built in a variety of architectural styles, from the insular baroque of the church of St. Francis, to the colonial Canary style of the church of the Concepciòn or the 18th century Iglesia del Pilar, built on an ancient hermitage.

As you arrive in Funchal, the ship will cast anchor in a bay protected by mountains rising straight up behind the port.

Alight from the ship and explore the many beautiful gardens, markets and madeira wine cellars.

TOUR GUIDE VS. TOUR LEADER
Tour Guide: 
Often locals with intimate knowledge of an area, its culture, and history. Their role entails providing commentary, routing the tour, and seeing that people have a good time. They are a licensed, qualified expert who supplies specific information on history, art, architecture and culture of the city/village/attraction in which he or she is guiding the tour. The guide meets the group at the required place and leaves the group at the end of the tour, they do not travel with the group. 
 
Tour Leader: 
An experienced person tasked with ensuring the smooth operation of tours, as well as providing practical support to passengers throughout the whole trip. Their role primarily includes assisting with accommodation, transportation between locations, and communication with tour guides in each stop. A tour leader may provide general guidance around a city or village, and offer information on the place visited on the bus, however they are not required to have specific knowledge on art, architecture, or history. They are not allowed to provide a guided tour or commentary of a city/village/attraction once there and if caught doing so, can be fined. 
 
Please note: Tour leaders/guides are not a standard inclusion in all travel offers. Tour leaders/guides will only be made available when particularly required to enhance the experience of the destination featured. 
 
CLIMATE & AVERAGE TEMPERATURES
October/November:
- The average daily temperature in the month of October lingers around 21 degrees Celsius.
- The best months to visit Morocco/ Canary Islands is between September and November. These shoulder seasons are known for their desirable weather as temperatures are cooler and more comfortable for sightseeing.
- The Mediterranean climate does gradually decrease during October/November to 18-20degree as the season heads towards autumn, although sunshine hours remain at an average of just over seven hours daily.

Do not make any purchases you are not comfortable with or feel pressured into. If you are uncertain or need assistance with the language barrier, please seek assistance from your Tour Guide/Leader.
