Can't think of a unique gift for the holiday season? Here's something you could sink your teeth into even after the holidaze! Treat someone to the ultimate haunted horror experience -- a "vampire vacation!"
"DraculaTour," is the travel adventure which takes you to Eastern Europe's most infamous land of the unholy, Transylvania (in Romania). For one week next year, either July 10-17, 2008, or October 27-November 3rd, 2008, experience the definitive haunted holiday with fellow fans, friends & fiends of the macabre on a vacation that is scary, spooky, campy - but most of all - fun for all ages!

"DraculaTour" is the only true fully-guided, professionally-escorted "vampire vacation" professionally organized by fans especially for fans. This annual pilgrimage to Transylvania is presented by Tours of Terror, who organize and host both the Summer version of the tour and the popular Halloween week trip, along with the annual haunted "GHOSTour."

"Dracula Tour" follows Jonathan Harker's trail from the novel "Dracula," while throwing in all sorts of spooky surprises along the way. There is a mock witch trial, visits to haunted graveyards and time spent in the world's largest and oldest torture museum. There is both educational and entertainment value as the tour includes historical Bran Castle, Clock Tower, the Black Church, Vlad's birthplace, Vlad's castle (also known as Dracula's fortress) and also the monastery where Vlad is buried. It's the perfect combination of fun and fear, for anyone looking for an unusual week-long ghoulish getaway. Vampires, vampire fans and even vampire slayers are welcome, and all get along harmoniously on this travel adventure.

The highlight of the "Dracula Tour" is undoubtedly spending the night at Dracula's Castle. All travelers dress in their best costumes, eat a lavish meal, experience a surprise "vampire" encounter, descend to the dungeon of the castle where "the coffin" lies waiting, dance to appropriate macabre music (everything from "The Monster Mash" to music from "Rocky Horror"), partake in a moonlit bonfire and simply have the times of their lives ... even if they're part of the undead. Every year, one couple takes the experience one step further -- they get married during the trip with their ceremony and reception at Dracula's Castle, and all the fellow travelers are guests at this unique wedding! Whereas most couples kiss after their cake-cutting ceremony, the bride and groom bite each other's necks (lovingly, of course).


What are some of the other highlights of this trek of terror? Along with actually following in the footsteps of Jonathan Harker's trail from Bram Stoker's novel "Dracula," you will spend time in Bucharest ascending the Carpethian Mountains to Vlad Castle. You will be part of a hair-raising (spirit-raising?) sťance in a secluded graveyard in Brasov. You will see the Black Church and haunted Farmer's Market in Sighisoara, birthplace of Dracula (Vlad). You will visit the eerie Clock Tower and Square History Torture Museum. You will embark on a journey through Borgo Pass to Dracula's Castle! You will also explore the Snagov Monastery (Tomb of Dracula) as well as 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. Our nights 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!). And it's the most inventive, most unique holiday gift for anyone into such a vacation.
The very special guest tourguide for the Summer trip (July, 2008) has not yet been determined. The past horror and genre stars to join us were TV personality/actor Butch "Eddie Munster" Patrick and scream queen legend Ingrid Pitt of the British Hammer Horror films.

"Dracula Tour" is presented in association with Horrorfind.com, Chiller Theatre, Monster Bash, MonsterMania and Fright Haven. It's a $4500 value for only $2199 per person, based on double occupancy. Package price includes round-trip airfare from the NY metro area, deluxe hotel accommodations, meals, transfers, luxury coach ground transportation, all events - parties - guests appearances - attractions - admissions. Reservations are now being accepted, and space is limited.

For a free color brochure, write to Tours of Terror at 315 Derby Avenue, Orange, CT 06477 or call toll-free (866) T-E-R-R-OR-T-O-U-R. The direct line is (203) 795-4737.
We also produce the annual "GHOSTour" (the Haunted Horror Vacation to England May 10-17, 2009) and our music-theme trips, notably the "Magical History Tour" for Beatles fans. Please write or call for details.

Although the Vampire Vacation takes place in July and over Halloween time, we will gladly include post-holiday gift card notices with travel vouchers for anyone reserving space on any of the tours as gifts.

Happy Horrordaze and Beast Witches!

I know but at the rate I'm going i wont have any money till 2020 to do anything LOL. I have some Christmas presents to buy just for a baby its my Mikey its his first Christmas and Halloween {hes gunna be a pumpkin ill share pics when i get them}.And I ordered me & my mom some dolls thru Ashton drake there are 6 in mom's collection & so far 3 in mine each is 29.99 each so ill be paying on those for a while.Then i need to save the money to see Taylor Hicks in grease when the tour stops in Omaha & i have to pay Connie back the money for me & my moms tickets.Then we r going to 1 of his shows when he goes on his next solo tour.And My Cousin that lives near San Diego Cali wants me to come see her told me she'd pay for half my plane ride if I come {I'm guessing its for a round trip ticket just hope my fat butt can fit in a coach seat LOL}. But until the dolls & Connie are paid off I go no where & have lil money but it'll be worth it. when I have all my Money again Ill start pricing trips to California & seeing about having all Oxygen stuff delivered to her house NO airline will allow me to bring my metal oxy bottle a pre 9/11 thing they fear there could be something other than pure Oxygen in them so no bottles at all.I can go without it for a while I just need to make sure theres a place in San Diego that is associated with my oxygen people so i can make the arrangements to have it delivered.I want to at least go to Disney Lad & Hollywood & that by itself is a 3 hr drive but its also part of LA i think so I want to take at least 500.00 with me just for the trip maybe try & save more {ill send the $ to my gma to save for me so I'm not tempted to spend it.That how I had 300 to go to Ozzfest sent her 100 a month from April to July last yr I had over 300. But i spent some of it b4 going to Ozzfest I did have enough to eat drink a few beers & get a Tshirt & went to the side show}

OK I'm babbling that means its NAAAAAAAP TIME lol

love ya

Ill try & get my Haunted tour pics in soon hugs & Happy Nightmares Penney
