The prestigious Fodor's travel guide placed our best selling Dracula tour, "Halloween in Transylvania with Vlad the Impaler," in the Top Ten Must-Do-Adventures, and our “Ritual Killing of a Living Dead,” was featured on the Travel Channel. Here’s how Professor Duncan Light, specializing in dark tourism, from Liverpool Hope University describes us: "Your company is one of the few that understands the Western market for Dracula. Your product appears to be very innovative! For many Romanians Dracula means Vlad Tepes but for people from the UK, America etc. it means, of course, the vampire Dracula. I agree with those people who say that Dracula is a way to get foreign tourists into Romania, creating an opportunity to show them all the other things the country can offer.”
