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!

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!
