We've been twice on this tour over Christmas and enjoyed it very much. A good value holiday and Thomson's travel arrangements are 1st class, apart from the seats on the aircraft which are very cramped and we paid extra the 2nd time for more leg room. We took similar trips to those described and altho expensive, had good English speaking guides who were very informative and helpful. Enjoy!

Hi, We are also going on the Colourfull coasts cruise in December. Just seems so far away at the moment. We already booked the all inclusive package so feedback on this and the cruise in general would be great. Thanks.

I would recommend the Timanfaya National Park excursion (the volcano) in Lanzarote. It was spectacular and included a camel ride and cost £30 (a couple of years ago). The lava caves (Jameos del Agua) are also really interesting too and includes a sight-seeing tour of the north of the island. That cost £25. In Madeira, we did the cable car and toboggan ride on our own and the tourist bus which was cheaper than the ship's trip - you can walk from the ship. The second time we went (earlier this year) We chose to do the Best of the West ship's excursion which was fabulous. It was £47 for 7.5 hours but included lunch which we thought was good value. It's a lovely island and a good way to see more of the spectacular scenery. In Agadir we went on the trip to Taroudant 'little Marrakech'. We felt it gave us a good feel of Morocco - we saw the tree-climbing goats and it included a free refreshment stop for £26. We just did our own thing in La Palma and Gran Canaria. The AI is really good - many drinks included wine/spirits/beer/cocktails as well as soft drinks, virgin cocktails, cappuccinos, hot chocolate. For some drinks you have to pay a surcharge e.g. special whiskies etc. (these are clearly marked in the drinks menu so you won't be taken by surprise) but we've never had to pay anything extra and have found plenty to choose from.
