This was a terrific tour. You must experience it! We went at a great time just before Mardi Gras. We were able to see what was being put together for some of the floats. We had a great tour guide.
our cousin from Italy was visiting us and we took her on your tour. She was amazed! We really enjoyed it!
Mardi Gras World was neat. The tour is fine, but they give you a lot of freedom to explore afterwards which was amazing. Not terribly hard to get to It's just below the convention center. Definitely worth the visit.
Very interesting to see the warehouse were floats are made and stored, especially if you can't be here for Madi gras parade
The tour was very entertaining and informative. The hands on part of the tour was very fun! We will for sure be recommending it to everyone!
I highly recommend a trip to Mardi Gras World if you are lucky enough to be visiting New Orleans. It is spectacular sight, the floats are amazing. It is also interesting seeing the craftsmen at their work and finding out how they make the floats. We were in New Orleans for my husbands 50th birthday from the UK and doing this on his big day just added to a day of entertainment.
Great to see all the passion that goes into making Mardi Gras so special each and every year!
Excellent tour, very interesting and fun. Amazing artists at work
This tour was fantastic! It was so interesting to learn the history and the process of how the floats are made.
Loved the experience. The floats we saw in storage were gorgeous and unbelievable. Loved seeing the process of creation. It was fun dressing up in costumes and taking photos. Learned a lot about Mardi Gras!
Great tour. Excellent overview of the work that goes into the year-round planning and running of this huge "party". We got a complete tour of the main warehouse....wasn't really expecting to see this much access...so that was great!! We went the 2nd week of January, which was a good time to tour. We were able to take as many pictures as we wanted.
Very interesting! We enjoyed learning about how the floats were designed and built
great experience to see how the world and magic of mardi grass is created, be aware that this is located very far off so you have to asked them to call when you are done so a driver can pick you up and drop you at center of city, they have different stops so make sure you call to see which one is closer to your hotel for pick up, we even got to see artists working
Fun, informative, you also see a short movie on history of Mardi Gras. You see many of the floats in a huge warehouse. People are actually working on floats as you tour. Great for people of all ages.
