Full description
Following pick-up, journey through some of the most beautiful gardens of Marrakech and discover fragrant oases in the heart of the city. Visit the most important garden in Marrakech at the expansive former orchard of the Agdal Gardens.

Established in the 12th century by the Sultan Abd al-Mu'min of the Almohad Caliphate, the botanical garden is sometimes referred to as the "Islamic Versailles." A tiny part is open to the public on Fridays and Sundays, when people come to feed the large carp in the ancient water basin, or to enjoy a picnic under the shade of the olive trees. On a clear day in winter, the view of the snow-capped Atlas Mountains against a pristine blue sky is spectacular.

Together with the Menara Gardens, the Agdal Gardens were designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985. Developed around 1156-57 as part of an ambitious program of city improvements by Abd al-Mu'min, the smaller Menara Gardens are a delight to stroll around. Join the locals who come to enjoy the cooling waters of the expansive irrigation tank, or to take a picnic in the shade of the olive groves.

Delight to the beauty of the Majorelle Garden, known for its cobalt-blue features and series of mini landscapes that take you on a sensory journey from cool dreamy calm to hot prickly frisson. Considered the masterpiece of the painter, plant collector and scholarly enthusiast, Jacques Majorelle, the garden opened to the public in 1947 and was bought by the French couturier Yves Saint Laurent and his partner Pierre Bergé in 1980.

Get a wonderful view of the Koutoubia Mosque from the Koutoubia Gardens. Enter the garden through the main gate, and cast your eyes across a large fountain and wide path that leads towards the mosque as it reaches into a rich Moroccan sky.
