Gardens are beautiful and definitely worth the visit but this is a 1 hour activity! So it was nice combination with the camel ride to fill up the afternoon. Camel ride was a very enjoyable experience! It was in the suburbs of Marrakech but you don’t get anything less than what you would otherwise in Afgay dessert. Our driver Khalid was super professional and minivan very comfortable!
