New Orleans: Mardi Gras World Behind-the-Scenes Tour
- Duration: 1 hour
An absolute MUST for any visitor! This guided tour, plus free time touring afterwards, was so informative. The home base of ALL parade floats - computer aided design, construction, painting, then storing in this, the largest, and many more storage-only warehouses throughout New Orleans.
The passes were easy to pick up on Canal Street. I went to each place the cards were scanned with no problem. Everyone was friendly,open, and very accommodating! One thing if you do the swamp tour, and want to go early in the morning call ahead. Reservations recommend there!
We got a three day pass. Went around the whole route the first day. We went back to the garden district for the tour, which was very good, and also to see the shops on Magazine Street. We also used it to go to Mardi Gras World. The French Quarter tour was also good.
It was a good choice if transportation around New Orleans. But when u ride 1 1/2 before 5:30 they won’t take u where u want to go coz bus stop at 5:30. They should take the people to the stop where they want to go if they are in the bus before 5:30
It was a good experience. Was a little irritated because I paid for parking to be shuttled to the venue only to realize there is plenty of parking (free) at the venue.
