    We enjoyed our tour guide Suzie, she was very informative, funny and had a great personality. Very neat to see the artists working on new floats for next year. Love that they re purpose old props.

    The tour is not worth $20 that they charge you. They let you try on Mardi Gras costume to take picture, let you watch a short movie clip, let you eat a piece of the king cake, then walk you around the warehouse explaining a few things about the “inside” of Mardi Gras and how people built the float, how huge the amount of money goes in there every year, etc. The tour last only about half an hour to 45 minutes. Then the bus that is supposed to pick you up and drop you off at Canal street is like 20 min late. Not recommend it.

    It was a surprise to be able to see next year’s floats being made as well as the thousands of items from previous year’s floats. A good tour and outing. They need to do something about getting there – like get the trolley to extend it’s journey. The tracks are outside the door!

    This was such a great tourist site if you can’t see Mardi Gras itself. It would be fun for any age. The tour was thorough and left anyone wanting more time to wander on his/her own. It started with a sort of dated video and “authentic costumes” to try on. Everything got better after that. The guide knew good stats and explained what happens in each stage of float construction. This company produces most of the floats and it was great to see the different steps. I liked having more time to wander through the construction & paint sections until we got all the action photos we wanted. I called for the free shuttle and it never showed. I was really disappointed in how poorly organized the shuttle service was. We waited where they told us to and then we ended up walking. It was a waste of time and it would be better if they took a name & phone number or if they gave an ETA.
