Take this tour!! I was hesitant about this tour at first because I did not want to be a cheesy tourist. But you will learn the entire Martis Gras history and get an inside look at the floats -- all while getting the inside stories about what makes Martis Gras so special. There is so much history behind everything that I never appreciated or knew about. You will learn and SEE how props and floats are made. It was such a special experience and I will even go back AGAIN the next time I visit NOLA. You'll have tons of photo opportunities and even get a delicious slice of King Cake. Don't miss this tour!
