Enjoyed the Majorelle gardens and horse and carriage ride. Not much to see at the Menara gardens. Excellent pick up from hotel. Had difficulty confirming trip by phone, no answer the first few times.

"Botanical Tour" is a complete misnomer. The bus-ride to the Jardin Majorelle was on-time, well-organised and the guide during the bus-ride gave some interesting basic statistics about Morocco (not, however, about gardens). The Jardin Majorelle was interesting but I could have easily got there by taxi and had more time to explore. The second "garden" was not a garden at all but an extremely dirty, heavily littered public park made up of a muddy concrete pond and several acres of drab olive trees knee-deep in plastic bags, cans and other assorted rubbish. NOT a garden, I repeat NOT a garden. The trip back into the city by pony-and -trap was cute but we shared it with another couple and had to sit facing backwards and saw practically nothing. I am sure there must be other gardens in Marrakech but this tour certainly didn't even consider them. I would not advise ANYONE to take this tour.

Majorelle Gardens was a fantastic surprise. Such cool lush surroundings, so unexpected. Enjoyed the ride on the caliche. A bit too long walking through the olive grove though.

My booking stated English speaking guide however I was in a French speaking group. Only 2 gardens visited. You are left in Majorelle garden for an hour then driven to Menara which is not really garden but open space and again wander for set time. Horse carriage ride back to Main square. Wouldn't recommend this trip. Better to take taxi to Majorelle Gardens.

The Majorelle gardens were very good but, unfortunately, it started to rain and got heavier which ruined the rest of the tour. Not much fun in an open carriage which was covered over and you could see nothing. Not the operators fault. They cannot control the weather.

Majorelle Gardens are stunning. The Menara gardens are more like an orchard and the Agdal gardens were closed as the King was in residence. However, the carriage ride is a good way to spend an hour or so and the tour was still good value for money.
