Blaine Kern's Mardi Gras World, New Orleans Reviews - Write a Review

  • glad I did. The tour was very informative and our tour guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about the whole subject of Mardi Gras. We were also able to go into the building next door, which was very cool, would love to be invited to a party there. The price was right and they even pick up and drop off, our driver was hilarious. I can't say enough..but definitely check it out.

  • very affordable, learn the history, see how the floats and props are built. behind the scenes look that is worth every penny. shuttle bus available. walking distance from french quarters.

  • We really enjoyed our visit to Mardi Gras World. They gave us all the history of Mardi Gras via a video presentation and then provided us a tour through the manufacturing floor and warehouse. We were able to take photos and look at all the cool props and floats. I'd definitely recommend it if you're in the city for a few days.

  • The venue is great for shows and whatnot, my only complaint is there are no restrooms. If you need to use the facilities, you have to use port-a-potties (clean & well stocked) that have been lined up along the river.

  • Great behind the scenes look at how the floats are made and a bit of parade history. The tour is great. Highly recommended.
