The tour fulfilled my expectations the tour guide was highly knowledgeable and pleasant. Through no fault of his own, the public garden was in disastrous shape perhaps disgusting, while the Majorelle garden was sublime. I would use the tour guide again. He and his driver were courteous, professional and sensitive to their customers' needs.
Very nice tour to visit Jardin Majorel and also to get a cariage trip. Our guide was very useful, worth it for the money.
An excellent tour which included coach tours to the Marjorelle and Menara Gardens with a horse and carriage ride back to the centre of Marrakesh.
The Majorelle Garden is superb, well designed, full of interesting plants and extremely well maintained. By comparison the Menara Garden is not so interesting. Just a small pavilion plus a large reservoir surrounded by olive groves much litter around and some mud brickwork in need of repair. However the splendid horse and carriage ride back soon made up for this disappointment.
One word of advice the Viator website states, Your Marrakech garden tour begins with an afternoon pickup from your central hotel or riad. Ours nearly did not. Our riad was in the Medina and therefore central but the first advice from the local tour operator was to report to a meeting point some 3.3 km from the riad. It took an email to Viator and a second call from the UK to the tour operator in Marrakesh to secure a local pick-up in a minibus. On the day this arrangement worked well, but both Viators and the local operators communication skills need improvement.
Jardin morjorelle is quite small but exotic in plantation and indigo blues, a beautiful and romantic stroll in the garden. The tour consist of large group, coach size which was ok, then to Menara oasis with vast olive tree crops and space, good for get away from city life of Marrakech but not far from city centre. Then ending the excursion with horse carriage ride shared between other tourist if less than 3-2 people as carriage carry max 4 people per carriage. Pleasant ride outside city wall and admiring the busy day to day city life of the locals.most enjoyable.
An interesting afternoon in beautiful gardens and completed by taking a carriage round the outer walls of the city. Very informative guide, who liked us to ask questions.
