Iconic Mardi Gras New Orleans

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.

Meals

Eating is a big part of travelling. Travelling with G Adventures you experience the vast array of wonderful food that is available out in the world. Generally meals are not included in the trip price when there is a choice of eating options, to give you the maximum flexibility in deciding where, what and with whom to eat. It also gives you more budgeting flexibility. Your CEO will be able to suggest favourite restaurants during your trip aiming to where the locals eat. For all trips please refer to the meals included and budget information for included meals and meal budgets.

Group Leader Description

This G Adventures group trip is accompanied by one of our group leaders, otherwise known as a Chief Experience Officer (CEO). As the group coordinator and manager, the aim of the CEO is to take the hassle out of your travels and to help you have the best trip possible. While not being guides in the traditional sense, you can expect them to have a broad general knowledge of the countries visited on the trip, including historical, cultural, religious and social aspects. They will also offer suggestions for things to do and to see, recommend great local eating venues and introduce you to our local friends.
