What are some of the highlights of this trek of terror? Guests will actually follow the footsteps of Jonathan Harker’s trail from Bram Stoker’s novel “Dracula.” Time is spent in Bucharest ascending the Carpethian Mountains to Vlad Castle. Participants will be part of a hair-raising (spirit-raising?) séance in a secluded graveyard in Brasov. Travelers will see the Black Church and haunted Farmer’s Market in Sighisoara, birthplace of Dracula (Vlad), as well as the eerie Clock Tower and Square History Torture Museum. Everyone will embark on a journey through Borgo Pass to Dracula’s Castle, where each soul will experience the definitive Halloween eve: Masquerade Ball, Vampire Show, Dinner and “Monster Mash” Dance Party right in Dracula’s Castle! Along the way, there’s an exploration of the Snagov Monastery (“Tomb of Dracula”) along with the Transylvanian Castle of Bran, a fortress built in 1377 and preserved as national monument. And that’s just the sightseeing part of the trip. Evenings are filled with howling parties, witch trials, bonfires and surprises. There’ll be more head-turning than in an Exorcist movie!
This professionally-guided, fully-escorted tour is ideal for the single traveler, but also is well-suited for couples and also families. If you’re the type who would enjoy dressing up (or down) for a masquerade ball in Dracula’s Castle, or if you can imagine have a blood-suckingly great time partying under a full moon in a land that time forgot, this is the tour experience of a lifetime (even if you’re part of the undead!).
