Mardi Gras World Admission With Complimentary Shuttle Transportation

LIMITED TIME OFFER: Book online and SAVE 10% using promo code MARDIGRAS! Complimentary shuttle pickup from French Quarter & Downtown.

There are plenty of tours in New Orleans, but only the Mardi Gras World tour offers a real, behind-the-scenes look at how Mardi Gras is made. Our knowledgeable guides take the mask off Mardi Gras with an all-access tour, winding through the massive studio where these magnificent floats are built from the ground up. The hour long tour is fun for all ages and with our convenient shuttle service, transportation to our facility is easy from top tourist destinations. Unlike many attractions in the city, we are open 7 days a week and are completely indoors- perfect for that rainy day. Come learn about what makes New Orleans famous: Mardi Gras!

Activity Highlights
→ Behind-the-scenes look at New Orleans Mardi Gras

Mardi Gras World is closed on Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter and, of course, Mardi Gras Day. We will close at 2pm (last tour begins at 1pm) on Christmas Eve as well as the Saturday, Sunday and Monday before Fat Tuesday.

    Glad we chose this attraction

    Wanted to go to this tour my last trip 10 years ago. This time we made it and am very happy we did. Now we are psyched and want to come for a Mardi Gras so it's on our bucket list. First time using Tripshock and ended up booking 3 tours - always great to save some $$
