Tour & Travel Planners

Our hour-long Mardi Gras World tour will give you and your tour group an insider’s view of how Mardi Gras is made, including a video on the history of Mardi Gras and background on the real traditions of Mardi Gras in New Orleans. Take what many say is one of the best tours in New Orleans—you and your group will have the opportunity to dress like a Mardi Gras float rider and so much more. There is nothing like a New Orleans Mardi Gras, and there’s no other tour in New Orleans that will get you closer to the action than what you’ll find at Mardi Gras World – come visit today!
