“Great tour!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

I thought the tour was great! It was lots of fun, very informative. We got to dress up in Mardi Gras costumes & take pictures! You get to see the floats up close. The tour ended with a piece of king cake, can't beat that!

“A must see for NOLA visitors”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

I often start any family or friends first visit to the city with this tour. (probably more for me than them) Big fun and make sure you try on the costumes! No time to be shy. The floats are massive and a joy to see. Miss the Krewe of Boo for halloween......great idea. What happened?
We always take the ferry at the end of Canal to Algiers. Would like it even better if the Krewe themes and design changes are discussed. Perhaps a video of a float being retro-fitted into another design would add to my many visits?? Just a hint for anyone connected.

“A warehouse of wonder!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

If you ever wanted to go behind the scenes and see what it takes to put together the Mardi Gras floats you see every year, this is one tour that will have you floating on cloud nine by the time you leave Mardi Gras World!

“Expected More”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

The free shuttle ride was a waite and the museum was not woth the price. They should have explained more about Mardi Gras and the # of total parades, etc. Instead they were only worried about getting you in and out.
