Itinerary

  • You will be picked up from your centrally located hotel in Marrakech for Gardens and Ramparts tour.

    Depart by bus to the meeting point for the departure by barouches. Board a barouche, a four-wheeled carriage, and set out with your guide for this sightseeing tour.

    Head towards the Agdal Gardens. The 12th century Agdal Gardens, stretching south of the médina, include several pools, and olive, orange and pomegranate orchards.

    From the Agdal Gardens ride towards the Menara Gardens. Made up primarily of olive groves, a rectangular pool stands at the centre of the groves, reflecting the stunning Atlas Mountains in the background.

    Reboard your air-conditioned bus and head back towards the ramparts and view one of the most famous gates, the Bab Khemis. With an impressive length of more than 10 km, the city ramparts are among the main attractions of Marrakech. Well-preserved with a height ranging from 8 to 10 meters, ten gates pierce the wall as entry points. Several of these have been the model for other Moroccan cities as well.

    Stop and explore the exquisite Majorelle Gardens. This superb tropical garden with fountains, pools, a forest of bamboos and cactus, also houses a fabulous private museum collection. This garden was laid out by a French artist, Louis Majorelle, and was later restored and bought by Yves Saint Laurent. Bright cobalt blue buildings dot this amazing garden

    Your tour ends with a drop-off at your hotel or the closest drop-off point in Marrakech.
