Reserve123's Top 5 Scariest Places on Earth

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
Take our exclusive Skip the Line Catacombs Tour in Paris and explore a mysterious underground world. This tour will start with a brief visit of Montparnasse Cemetery on the way to the Catacombs, just nearby. The Catacombs contains the bones of over 6 million people. But there’s always room for one more… any volunteers? Learn the history behind the Catacombs, why the labyrinth of tunnels became an underground cemetery, and see the incredible collection of bones within. This small group tour is truly one of the most unique attractions in Paris!

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. Book now for the adventure of a lifetime!

Ghosts of Atlanta Walking Tour

No sign of ghosts yet... just a Vampire :[

No sign of ghosts yet… just an innocent Vampire :[

“Are you a Believer?” That was the very first question posed to our group by our Ghosts of Atlanta Walking Tourguide, dressed up as a ghostly host from beyond. She was, of course, referring to believing in Ghosts. Being that this was Halloween Night 2011, I was of course dressed up as a cute, sultry Vampiress. “Discover the history of war, murder, suicide and the tragic spirits who were left behind.” So, did we spy a few spirits still haunting downtown ATL? Why would I spoil the surprise?? ;) Do YOU believe in Ghosts???

I will, however, let you in on a few fun secrets… are you familiar with Ghost Hunting equipment? No, I’m not talking about Ghostbusters Proton Packs. I’m talking about EMF Meters, EVP Equipment, Radars, Temperature “Cold Spot” Gauges, and yes, there are even popular Apps for Ghost Hunting. We all got to try out some of this cool equipment along the way, and saw TONS of creepy old places in downtown Atlanta. One that still haunts my memory is the old abandoned Medical Arts Building on Peachtree Street. It is one of the few remaining oldest structures in Atlanta, and has been vacant for over 20 years… or has it? Find out more tales of mystery and gore on the tour. We also saw a hotel where there was a deadly fire where hauntings still occur, as well as several cemetery sites and haunted Victorian-style houses that have so far survived being renovated or torn down. And that is is only the tip of the iceberg as far as what you will see and learn on the tour.

Guests are also highly encouraged to take photos all along the way. InfraRed cameras may be hard for the average person to feel the need to indulge in for ghost hunting. However, a little brightening in Photoshop for night photos can sometimes do the trick. The photos below are an example. The one of the left is the original photo taken at night of a haunted cemetery on the tour, said to have several ghosts of Civil War soldiers. The one on the right is the same photo, simply brightened up a bit with Photoshop. Is the camera lens suddenly dirty (while all of the other photos were perfectly clear), or are the small “orbs” in the photo more than meets the eye? You be the judge. One thing is certain – you could choose to enjoy some coffee or “spirits” at the nearby Café Intermezzo afterward. Welcome to the Dark Side of Atlanta…

If you are looking for a vacation spot with sun, sand and surf complete with complete relaxation, fun activities and fantastic scenery then look no more!  A trip to the Florida Keys is just what you need!  Florida Keys Tours can make your dream vacation come true as there are loads of tours, activities and attraction tickets are at your disposal.

On the Glass Bottom Boat Discovery tour, you will see up-close the magnificent diverse underwater world.  The vibrant coral reef, stunning exotic fish and hundreds of varieties of aquatic life is just under your feet.  During your cruise along the smooth waters, you will be treated to complimentary champagne or soft drinks along with cheese a crackers.  Your evening will be complete with the breathtaking sunset reflecting off the waters of the Atlantic Ocean. 

For this different kind of Florida Keys fun, you can take part in the Ghostly Legends of Key West Tour.  You can engage yourself in a different aspect of the keys with a stroll through the dim and gloomy streets of Old Town, Key West where the real estate dates back to the Kings of Spain. 

Your ghost tour makes stop at the Audubon House, the old city morgue, the Marrero House where the spirit of Enriquetta lives, St. Paul’s Cemetery, the Otto Mansion where you may discover the real “Chucky,” and other hidden spots that only a local can show you.  You will hear tales of the haunted Victorian mansions, learn the legends of pirates, and wonder about ancient local voodoo.  This tour will show you all the peculiar and eerie parts of Key West, something that cannot be missed!

While visiting the Keys, one thing that you absolutely must do is ride the crystal clear waters on a high speed Jetski.  The Key West Jetski Tours will circle around stunning Key West.  You will spot porpoises, rays, fish, and maybe even a shark or two.  Halfway through the tour, you will take a rest and stop for a swim in the pristine waters.  You will be able to search for shells and sand dollars in the nearby sandbar or swim after the many tropical fish.   The guides will take you to places that you can’t see from the shore and the only way to find out about them is to take the tour yourself!

Florida Keys Tours also provides you with the opportunity to rent Jetskis on your own so you can explore the area at your own pace.  We offer SeaDoo and Yamaha four-stroke Jetskis that can reach the speed of 50 mph.  Your Jetski will hold two adults or one adult with two children so the whole family can ride! 

If you are looking for fun and affordable transportation then try out the Key West Boat Shuttles.  They depart from Fort Myers, Marco Island, Miami, and of course, Key West.  The boat shuttles offer a fun, fast and affordable way to get to where you want to go, while providing you with some excellent scenery along the way.  Each vessel is complete with heating and air conditioning, gift shop, café, large flat screen satellite televisions, state-of-the-art electronics, indoor and outdoor seating, bar and information desk to get all your questions answered.  Remember, getting there is only half the fun!
