Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

Reserve123 and our affiliate website Ghost Tours have put together a delightfully corrupt and terrifying list of our Top 5 Scariest Places on Earth. Sure, next Halloween you could “try” to frighten off the evil spirits by dressing up as a princess, or a dastardly pirate, or a dinosaur… But we think it would be much more chillingly friendly and adventurous to travel and visit our dearly departed at these haunted destinations. Go ahead… we DARE you!! Now, “Look alive…”

5. The Paris Catacombs, France

4. Underground Vaults, Edinburgh, Scotland
Enter the maze of underground vaults and hear irrefutable evidence of ghostly presences and angry spirits on our Paranormal Underground Walking Tour in Edinburgh. Learn how ghosts can manifest themselves. Visit the ghostly “hotspots” in the vaults. Compare the spine-chilling accounts of eyewitnesses with those of professional psychics and the Ghost Project’s findings. Use your senses of sight, sound, smell and touch – and open yourself to the possibility of your own paranormal experience. You will have the opportunity to use hand-held electromagnetic field recorders. At the end of the tour, you will have time to explore using the equipment or perhaps your own psychic senses. Dare to discover the deepest darkness of Edinburgh?

3. St. Louis Cemetery #1, New Orleans, Louisiana
Cemeteries are creepy enough… and especially when the dead are NOT six feet under. New Orleans’ famous above-ground cemeteries, like the St. Louis #1, are a must-see. Our New Orleans Cemetery & Voodoo History Tour is an extremely popular daytime adventure into the legendary St. Louis Cemetery #1, New Orleans’ oldest City of the Dead. We’ll explore the cemetery and visit the tomb of Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau. Step back in time with this historically accurate and educational tour. This daytime walking tour combines some of the most fascinating elements in New Orleans – the history of the French Quarter, the oldest and most historic cemetery, and the history of New Orleans’ Voodoo Queen, Marie Laveau!

2. The Tower of London, England
One of the most notorious chopping blocks for human heads, the nearly 1,000-year-old Tower of London is claimed to be one of the most haunted sites in all of England. A headless Anne Boleyn, Henry VIII’s second wife, is rumored to be one of the Tower’s most frequent residents. The ghost of Sir Walter Raleigh is also said to haunt the Byward Tower, as well as the cries of Guy Fawkes, who was found guilty of high treason in 1606. If you’re lucky, you might get a glimpse of the two “Little Princes” and help solve their mysterious disappearance. Our Tower of London Admission Tickets include access to the Tower plus Yeoman Warder guided tour and talk, live historical re-enactments, Whiter Tower tour, children’s activity trails, entry to the Henry VII: Dressed to Kill exhibit, Prisoners of the Tower exhibition, and more!

1. Bran Castle, Transylvania, Romania
Bram Stoker’s blood-sucking novel “Dracula” was set in the central Romanian region of Transylvania. But the popular horror fiction simply doesn’t compare to the dark legends of the sadistic tyrant that inspired the story of Count Dracula – the real Romanian royal, Vlad Dracula, nicknamed “Vlad the Impaler.” On our Dracula Weekend in Transylvania Tour from Bucharest, you’ll learn the truth and everything that you ever wanted to know about Count Dracula and Vlad the Impaler. It includes the most important historical places related to Dracula such as: Snagov Monastery where Dracula was buried after his assassination; Sighisoara, Dracula’s birth place, Dracula’s Castle in Borgo Pass, built according to Bram Stoker’s imagination and of course the eerie, legendary Bran Castle.

England is known for its famous landmarks, beautiful natural surroundings, and those big red buses! An open-top bus tour is an ideal way to see London and the surrounding area, and it is a flexible option as well.  If you are looking to see one of the Queen’s residences, Windsor Castle, a hop on hop off bus tour is the way to go.

There are 11 stops on the tour, including Castle Hill (featuring Windsor Castle), High Street (Parish Church and Guildhall), Eton Court, and Windsor Bridge.  The comfortable air-conditioned bus takes you to the sights that are major highlights in the vicinity.

Children under age 5 are free, and the regular child rate starts as low as $6.95 so this is an affordable trip for everyone.  So get ready to experience Windsor and Eton as you enjoy the gentle breeze from atop one of those famous red buses.  You won’t regret it!

Halloween Haunts for Hire!

Thursday, October 1st, 2009

Chocolate Gifts from Chocolate.com.


Trick or treat?! We usher in the Fall season with massive planning efforts for Halloween over the coming weeks.  For those who don’t plan on staying home to hand out candy this year, here are a few of the places you can go to get spooked:

Plymouth, Massachusetts: Ghosts, orbs, and grave sites, oh my! On the Fright Night Halloween Ghost Tour in Plymouth, you can get an education on the different types of ghosts that stalk the area around Burial Hill.  Mystery and macabre come together on this lantern-lit walk where you can photograph the area and, later, watch for orbs of light in the developed pictures.

Washington, DC: On another walk, the Georgetown Ghost Walk, you will learn about the ghosts and spirits still haunting our US capital.  A trip through DC’s finest Victorian style neighborhood reveals much about the interesting lives of its now-dead inhabitants as they sometimes reveal themselves in spirit form.

Dallas: Whether you choose a Halloween-themed show like Keith & Margo’s Halloween Mystery Dinner Adventure or to put a different spin on things with the Haunting & Healing Paranormal Event in Dallas, you’re in for a good time for sure.  The dinner show includes an hors d’oeuvres reception, full 3-course sit-down dinner and dessert, and live entertainment in the form of an interactive live action murder mystery where you get to solve the crime and figure out whodunit.  The Haunting & Healing event gives you face time with four paranormal experts, which has been enjoyed by the likes of the queen of England and Dr. Seuss.  The experts channel their unique energy into a powerful grid of light and healing for all to witness.  It is truly a sight to behold.

London: If you happen to be overseas this Halloween, check out the Medieval Halloween Banquet in London.  The Brits do it up right with a celebration of the 500th anniversary of King Henry VIII taking possession of the throne.  Live entertainment, a night of disco, and a four-course banquet menu, along with unlimited beer and wine during the meal, make this a festive event to be enjoyed by all.  Not to mention the cast of characters in full dress, which adds to the delightfully scary atmosphere of it all.

No matter where you go or what you do, be sure to make it a scary day for the record books.  If you would like more information on any of these tours, visit www.Reserve123.com and tour type search for “Halloween.”

London: A Trip That’s Fit for a Queen

Monday, November 24th, 2008

London, England is a wonderful place to visit whether you grew up in Europe or elsewhere.  As soon as you enter the confines of the city, you realize that it is strikingly different from the rest of Europe.  In fact, many Brits do not consider themselves to be part of Europe at all.  England is centrally located so it is quite easy to hop on a plane and arrive at another European location in a short period of time.  With budget airlines like easyJet and Ryanair, it is not only convenient but cost efficient as well.

Your first time in London you might feel a little overwhelmed with all that there is to see and do.  That is, unless you enlist the help of a reputable touring company to assist you in setting your travel itinerary.  There are a few things that everyone would agree should be on the agenda:

Changing of the Guard – This is one of the mainstays that London is most known for.  On the Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace & Changing of the Guard Tour you will visit Buckingham Palace, the London residence of the Queen and witness the ceremonial changing of the guard who stands watch at the palace entrance.  You may even see the colorful flag, known as the Royal Standard, which means that the Queen is at home.

Westminster Abbey – This famous church is the burial place for many aristocrats, monks, and poets as well as kings and queens.  Among those laid to rest, some of the most recognizable names are William Shakespeare, John Keats, Elizabeth I, and Laurence Olivier.  If you have the time, be sure to make the journey up to the top and look down for an unbeatable view of the entire structure.  You can also attend a church service if you happen to be in the right place at the right time.  The echoing of the organ and the overall vibe of this gorgeous building make it a must-see location on your trip.

Crown Jewels – If you take the Historic & Modern London Tour, one of the stops on your journey will be at the Tower of London.  This has been the home of the Crown Jewels since 1303 when they were stolen from Westminster Abbey.  They are currently held in the part of the Tower called Jewel House, where they are open to the public for viewing during specified hours for a fee.  This stop, however, is included in the price of the Historic & Modern London Tour should you decide to take advantage of it.  Among the goodies you will see are beautifully adorned crowns, swords, orbs, and scepters once worn by British royalty.

Liverpool – For those devoted Beatles fans out there, Liverpool is a definite must.  The Beatles and Liverpool Tour highlights many of the locations critical to the Beatles’ journey to stardom.  You will take the train from Euston Station to Liverpool where you will be introduced to the Beatles’ history via the Magical Mystery Tour.  You will also have time to shop around, visit the Beatles Story exhibition, and stop at galleries and pubs along the way.

If you are unsure what else to do while you are in London, and to book a space on one of these amazing tours, visit www.londonenglandtours.net.  If you book your tickets online you will save $5 per adult ticket.  That’s 5 more dollars that you can be spending on souvenirs!
