    Here are a few practical advices for your visit:

    1. Buy the tickets online (no posibility to buy them on the spot);
    2. Opt for an early slot (9:30 at the latest) - the crowds will be thinner and it will be surprisingly easy to take the photos without including other people in them;
    3. Include in the ticket the visit to Musée Berbère;
    4. Be aware that the backpacks aren't allowed in and have to be left at the entrance, so plan how to carry your valuables with you;
    5. Take the water with you;
    6. Toilets are available near the entrance at Jardin privé and at bar at the end of the visit;
    7. Take the rest at the bar (some light meals available, too at reasonable prices).

    Enioy you visit!

    My wife and I really enjoyed our visit to the garden. We opted to go there straight after breakfast at our hotel and were rewarded with a peaceful garden with only a few people there.

    We thought it was well laid out with some interesting plants in the two separate gardens.

    We opted for the additional tower visit and were accompanied up the tower by one of the staff who provided an informative talk about the garden and it's history.

    There is a small terrace where you can buy drinks and snacks at reasonable prices.

    We would definitely recommend a visit.

    A wonderful trip to a beautiful garden filled with weird and wonderful sculptures and pieces of art. Our kids had a particularly enjoyable time exploring the gardens and delighting in the strange art. Most of the garden is nicely shaded from the heat of the sun. There's a nice cafe too. Worth noting this is quite far out of the city, about a 30-40 minute drive away from the centre of Marrakesh.

    Went from 12-4pm. Was a very relaxing afternoon. Has minimal water slides but still an okay amount! Lunch was nice there. And they also had live music. Nice to chill and read as well

    Exploring this garden reveals a potential oasis in ne es of restoration. Thé vas-y greenery and iconic bassin hint at the historical charm, but the current state leaves room for improvement . With thoughtful restoration, mènera garden could reclaim its status as a must visit destination, offering a rejuventated haven for locale and touriste as Well .

    Free to enter, nice & quiet and really well maintained (apart from some horrible graffiti) Worth seeking out if you are in the new town and want a nice quiet sit down.

    For starters I would like to note that this attraction seems to have two names. Tripadvisor calls it Jardin Bio Aromatique Nectarome but signs at the site refer to it as Jardin Bio Aromatique Ourika. Subsequent internet research along with my camera's GPS reveal that both are located at the same geographic site and are presumably different names for the same thing.

    This attraction was our lunch (and last) stop on our bus tour of the Ourika Valley. We disembarked the bus on a side street and walked about 10 min down a alley to the garden. As a side note, on the left (west) side of the alley is the Mosque ElSouiQa. There is a stork's nest on top of its minaret. When we visited the stork was in residence. :)

    The garden has a large number of beds of aromatic plants, mostly herbs, but also bushes and trees. Our guide explained the uses of the plants in culinary, cosmetic, medicinal, and alcoholic preparations. The smells were quite intoxicating. At times I felt like we were in a Simon&Garfunkel song - I saw parsley, rosemary, and thyme (however no sage :)

    After the tour we were served lunch consisting of a variety of dishes. I recommend tasting each of them. I found some quite delicious, others I chose not to go back for seconds.

    All in all it was a delightful end to a delightful tour of the Ourika Valley

    Beautiful!
    Hidden gem.
    We loved this tour, great place to spend time and take pics!

    You have to call and make an appointment to tour the gardens because they are often closed for private events and the have to make sure some one is available to show you around. Have your hotel call and set it up for you or send an email with notice.

    We learned a lot about the different types of cactus. The have 2 lil baby camels that were super cute.
    They are building a restaurant, so I would love to go back and eat once they’re done.

    Very nice park near Kutubie mosque. Nice for taking rest and to get some good photos of park, Fontana and mosque. Also locals selling coffee and tea

    not much to say about Agdal Gardens. They are big, but I would say not necessarily worth the trip-- especially is you walk from the medina

    This charity is amazing- doing great work in Marrakech for the abandoned & stray cats, dogs & other animals including stalks & peacocks, as well as the incredible work they’re doing for the working horses & donkeys.
    It’s a little off the beaten track but only cost 30 dirham in a taxi from the old town & we were given a tour by the really friendly & knowledgeable lady that works there.
    They provide a rehoming service, as well as a free hospital plus emergency care for the injured or neglected animals they come across.
    It’s great to know they are doing the best they can for the working horses & donkeys & she explained to us that all carriage horses have a band around their ankle which means the horse & owner are registered & the horse has to be bought in to be checked over & cleared for working. Any horse that is un-banded can be reported to them using the carriage number where you see the un-banded horse & actually after we left, we noticed some of these horses around the old square & reported the carriage numbers to them.
    They are trying to raise awareness of animal welfare in Marrakech & doing such great work, amazing to see.
    Please visit & donate!

    Worth a look...if you have time to spare - especially en route to Jardin Majorelle. Provides a brief but worthy bit of interest - some thought provoking sculptures.

    The plants in the garden are lovely and it's a nice place to visit in such a busy city, however, for those planning to go please note that the gardens when visited alone only take around 40 minutes to walk round.
