This tour is well worth the money. I would recommend going in the morning before it gets crowded. They show you a short film about the history of Mardi Gras and then you go on a guided tour through the warehouse. After the tour, they let you wander around and take pictures. They have a lot, and I mean a lot, of props from past Mardi Gras parades. We went one week before Mardi Gras and they were working on 20-30 floats for one of the upcoming parades. It was totally amazing. This was one of my favorite tours and I would definitely go again.
This tour was so much fun!!! I've been to NOLA many times and never realized the tour was available. Interesting facts about the beginnings of Mardi Gras and the making of the floats. We went at the perfect time, just a few weeks before the beginning of the parades. I felt like a kid at the Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory. Gigantic bright flowers, characters and floats!!
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.
