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!
