Carnival season has officially begun with yesterday's Feast of the Epiphany. Mardi Gras is such a wonderful time to visit New Orleans for the world's best free show. If you're coming to New Orleans for Fat Tuesday (and the many days of celebration beforehand) be sure to make your reservations soon! Although we have limits on our ability to operate city tours in the days leading up to Mardi Gras as streets are closed for the many fabulous parades, plantation and swamp tours are a great way to get out of the city for a day before rejoining the party! Reservations and Mardi Gras availability at 1-888-223-2093 or
