What we chose to do
We found it through a Google search.
We booked it two hours prior to going.
We were in the area.
We took the free shuttle service.
The staff was great!
I loved the craftsmanship and imagination of the artisans. The use of various materials to create the massive floats and decorations was amazing.
I also loved the sample of King Cake! The free shuttle made it easy to get there and back. The driver gave us a great background on the city too.
The gift shop had a lot of interesting items that were both fun and educational. The guide was knowledgeable and answered questions about how the floats are made. The movie before the tour was informative as well.
Yes, I would recommend it because of the combination of history, fun, and seeing people at work in person.
