Overzicht

Kijk achter het gordijn naar het wonder van Mardi Gras met deze rondleiding door Mardi Gras World in New Orleans. Bekijk het werk achter de schermen en de ongelooflijke artisticiteit die je gaat voorbereiden op de jaarlijkse viering. Leer met een gids de geschiedenis van het evenement en zie fantastische drijvers en rekwisieten. Maak een foto voor je favoriete float, verkleed je in kostuums en proef een klassieke King Cake.
  • Ronde van Mardi Gras World in New Orleans
  • Zie waar de geweldige drijvers van Mardi Gras uit New Orleans zijn gemaakt
  • Probeer Mardi Gras-kostuums uit, poseer voor de dobbers en proef een deel van de traditionele King Cake
  • Leer meer over de geschiedenis van Mardi Gras vanuit je gids
  • Ophalen bij het centrum van New Orleans
Begin je rondleiding achter de schermen van Mardi Gras World door te springen op de shuttle bij een van de 20 haltes in het centrum van New Orleans. De shuttles rijden elk half uur vanaf elke locatie, van 's morgens tot' s middags, zodat je gemakkelijk je 90 minuten durende excursie in een dag sightseeing kunt plannen.

Bij aankomst wordt je begroet door je gids, een expert in alles wat met Mardi Gras te maken heeft. Laat je inspireren door de magazijnen en 'floatholtes', studioruimten waar ontwerpers uitgebreide praalwagens maken voor de 40-plus parades van het festival. Leer de betekenis achter de symbolen en ontwerpdetails, en bekijk de ongelooflijke planning en arbeid die bij het construeren van elke dobber gaat.

Je komt erachter met een beter begrip van Mardi Gras, een geliefde en diepgewortelde traditie die nu het grootste culturele feest in de VS is. Ga terug naar de stad met de shuttle, koop een foto met je favoriete float en probeer een paar leuke festivalkleding - en vergeet niet om een ​​heerlijk stuk King Cake te pakken.

There was no tour. The door was locked. During the Mardi Gras parade season there were no tours scheduled. Viator sold tickets for tours that did not exist.

Would recommend this tour to anyone visiting New Orleans looking for something a little different to do for a couple of hours. Our tour guide was great and had tons of interesting stories about the history of the Mardi Gras parades as well as the props and floats that we saw. The tour was fascinating and there is plenty of opportunity to take lots of photos and ask question as you go around. Also got to try some King cake! the free shuttle to take you from/back to the French Quarter was very useful as well.

This tour was great! Not only did we get to see lots of the Mardi Gras floats up close and in various stages of development but the tour guide also gave us extra insight in to the history and meaning of the Mardi Gras parades. Would recommend this tour for visitors of all ages!

I appreciated the shuttle picking me up near Cafe du Monde. After watching a very interesting video of the history of the Mardi Gras parade, we were given a delicious slice of King Cake (rounding out the authentic New Orleans experience). Then our fabulous guide took us through the warehouses where these float masterpieces are housed. This is a working area, so we were able to see the patient, meticulous artisans sketching, carving, spray painting, creating all of these works of art. We could wander among the giant creations, taking many, many pictures. Our guide was hilarious and was incredibly knowledgeable. I’m so glad that I booked this tour!

Take this tour!! I was hesitant about this tour at first because I did not want to be a cheesy tourist. But you will learn the entire Martis Gras history and get an inside look at the floats -- all while getting the inside stories about what makes Martis Gras so special. There is so much history behind everything that I never appreciated or knew about. You will learn and SEE how props and floats are made. It was such a special experience and I will even go back AGAIN the next time I visit NOLA. You'll have tons of photo opportunities and even get a delicious slice of King Cake. Don't miss this tour!

This was a great tour! We squeezed this in before we had to head to the airport so i loved that they offer tours every 30 minutes. We enjoyed dressing in the easy to button on costumes for a few quick pics before watching the enjoyable video about Mardi Gras. The facts about what this location produces was so surprising! It was very impressive to see the artists actually working on-site and to see the volume of how many pieces are stored here. We were very impressed! The warehouse is not air conditioned while walking around but at least they have big fans everywhere. The only downside is the groups are quite large, about 25 people so it was hard to hear the tour guide. We kept falling behind because we were taking so many pictures. Overall this was interesting and fun.
