Tour Itinerary

Celebrate at the Bacchus Parade and take in the local vibe, wander Bourbon Street, enjoy a G Adventures Purple Party on Fat Tuesday, savour a snack at the famous Café du Monde

Mardi Gras in New Orleans is, hands down, one of the most colourfully mind-blowing festivals in the entire world. This limited-edition itinerary in the Big Easy is a quick (and indulgent) six days for all the senses. From your centrally located hotel, you're a quick walk from the French Quarter, where all the action takes place. This includes watching a parade in the company of G Adventures revellers, the absolutely thrilling sounds (and sights) of Bourbon Street, coffee and beignets at the iconic Café du Monde, and time in some of America's most beautiful neighbourhoods. Don't let another year go by without getting to this iconic event.

Day 1: New Orleans
Arrive at any time.
Activity: Your opportunity to meet your CEO and fellow travellers, and learn more about your tour. Opt to join the group for a local meal afterwards. Don't forget to see the notice in the lobby (or ask reception) for the official time and place to meet up with the group.
Accommodation: The Troubadour Hotel New Orleans (or similar)

Day 2: New Orleans
Enjoy an orientation walk of New Orleans before free time to enjoy the festivities. Join the locals in the evening and celebrate the Bacchus Parade, taking in elaborately decorated floats, intricate costumes, and an amazing local vibe.
Activity: Enjoy a brief walk with your CEO. He/she will give you some tips on finding things like supermarkets, main squares, and ATMs. For more specific or in-depth information, an official guided tour is recommended.
Free Time: Wander along Bourbon Street, or check out other neighbourhoods and attractions in NOLA.
Activity: The original superkrewe (parade), Bacchus is a party you don't want to miss. Founded in 1968 to celebrate Bacchus, the Roman God of Wine, this massive parade includes over 1000 people and more than 30 floats. Keep your eyes peeled for celebrities (Will Ferrell and William Shatner have been King of this Parade before), and famous floats like the Bacchasaurus, a giant dinosaur and the Bacchawhoppa, a massive whale.
Accommodation: The Troubadour Hotel New Orleans (or similar)

This was my 8th tour with this operator and I have a 9th scheduled. Obviously I am happy with this operator.

It was a great tour and are guides were very knowledgeable.

A Gadventures tour is a great affordable way to see the country and get the opportunity to meet and interact with the local people

It was a dream vacation.Thank you.

The G-Adventures travel guides were excellent

All 100% perfect, nothing to be done better

The G Adventures tour was fantastic.

Very satisfied with tour, enjoyed it very much.

I liked the variety of activities and the chance to opt out without undue pressure. I met some really fun people on this tour.

Everyone connected with the tour went above and beyond. The tour was more than I ever dreamt!

Our CEO Solofo for this trip is fantastic. He is patient and very nice. He went extra ways to help me and other members. I really enjoy this trip because of him! He is an excellent CEO. I definitely will recommend to other friends about him. Pls let him know that we really enjoy his introduction. He is also very informative and knowledgeable. In a word, he is excellent!

Great trip at a reasonable price.

Awesome trip in a great country. Our CEO was professional and fun!!!

G adventures offers hands down some of the best tour packages out there!

The Japan vacation was better than I expected!!!! It was an active "moving" trip, which I truly enjoyed. I've done "coach tours" where you sit on the bus and they take you -- this experience was "hands on" riding the buses, trains and running through the streets -- it was amazing !!!!! We got the full feel of Japan and the people. This trip is not for the weak or slow pace crowd - you drag your luggage through the streets, up and down stairs --- it was truly exciting and exhilarating. G adventures has a fan for life. The instructions and assistance was outstanding -- Great job - Steve (AffordableTours.com) was outstanding !
