  • I couldn't wait to visit this famous garden. well I was super disappointed ... it's small, we quickly went around, we spent 1 hour queuing, for Max 20min visit ... far too many people... impossible to make nice pictures!!!! I didn't expect that at all....

  • We are disappointed and also surprised by the hype for this garden. The queue for the tickets was long, the ticket cost the most (compared to other attractions). All in all, I don't think it's worth the visit at all.

  • Absolutely beautiful. Worth a visit. Definitely suggest going early to beat the crowds. Such a serene place is better enjoyed with less people around. We also paid the 30 dirham more to enter the Berber museum and I'm glad we did. This small, but well-executed, museum was a nice way to still get a historical background of Morocco without spending hours in a large museum. (Couldn't take photos in the museum)
  • I don’t really get what the fuss is about. If you like cacti then you’ll love. It’s a nice enough garden to wander in for 30 minutes... and you will spend 30 minutes lining up to get an over priced ticket. I felt better when I read that proceeds go to a charity that supports cultural development
