About this trip

Get ready for a wicked time in Cajun Country in Southern Louisiana


The Cajun Country in Louisiana is known to be very mysterious and haunted due to its fusion of rich, complex, and turbulent history, colorful culture, natural and untouched surroundings, and its unique folklore and legends. Witness, through our journey, the chapters of her swampy landscapes, historic antebellum architecture, traces of voodoo and mysticism, and haunted tales that have traveled through many generations. 


Experience this Cajun and Creole culture, that hold strong oral tradition of storytelling. Tales of ghosts, witches, and other supernatural beings have been passed down through generations, adding to the region's mystique. The swampy, marshy landscapes of Louisiana add an undeniable element of enigma to the region. Swamps with their eerie and unsettling landscape, providing a fitting backdrop for ghost stories and legends like the Rougarou. 


While some aspects of the Cajun Country's culture and environment might be seen as unsettling, they are also integral to the region's distinct and captivating character. With this tour, we hope to connect this supernatural sensation to its deep-rooted folklore, rich historical presence, and colorful cultural imprints. 


Not to be dismissed, tremendous credit and appreciation goes to Louisiana Spirits. With their deep connection to Creole culture and the local mysteries, legends, and folklore of the land, they were instrumental in helping us connect with the authentic people and treasures of Southern Louisiana. As seasoned paranormal authorities in this region, they proudly host the inaugural Cajun Country Para Con.

Itinerary

DAY 1: March 21, 2024
Welome to the Cajun Mysteries of Southern Louisiana

Immerse yourself into the Cajun Sauce of the Supernatural

When you arrive at New Orleans International Airport, you will be transported to a world that rebels against the pulse of the big city. Here, in its authentic Cajun Country, the secrets that are muffled with NOLA’s intense tourism will be urging for your attention. Prepare to be taken to the REAL and unsettling mysteries of Louisiana’s deep south. 


Our first stop is drenched with history. The Destrehan Plantation is one of the oldest surviving antebellum plantations in the Lower Mississippi Valley. It was established in 1787 and played a prominent role in the history of the region, particularly during the era of slavery and the American Civil War. The plantation's historical significance and the events that transpired there contribute to its mystique. Here, we will hear the story of “The Little Angel”, a spirit of a young girl that is said to still roam its rooms. 


Shortly, after checking into our spectacular antebellum inn, The Fairfax House, we will relax and find comfort in its charming southern hospitality. 

We will take a stroll to a nearby historical icon in Franklin, and visit the Oaklawn Manor, where the phantom of Henry Clay (a dear friend to the original owner, Alexander Porter) is said to roam this beautiful plantation. 


Stroll around Franklin, and right after supper, we will join one of the most impressive tours in the Bayou, The Ghost Walk of Franklin as delivered by Tours by Steven. Be certain, this experience will contribute to your first day’s unforgettable evening, where the past and the afterlife converge in a captivating dance of history, mystery and the supernatural. One of the most famous of its hauntings in Franklin is that of Benjamin Franklin, its namesake.

Honestly, I don't think there are enough words to describe the joy I felt on this trip. This trip has set the standard high for the rest of the trips to come. I definitely would have wanted to spend more time in Transylvania, especially in Bran, and more than one night in the Hoia Baciu forest and Corvin castle. Maybe even spend the night in the forest. :) Seeing Nevermore was an awesome treat for our first time in the Carpathians. I am hoping that the next time this trip comes up that Vlad Tepes' castle is open for us to investigate. I would have loved to have gone higher and further into the Carpathian mountains - further near the summit. The bed and breakfast in Bran - Villa Siana - was the chef's kiss. I wish we could have spent more time there just to sit by the fireside and share more stories. What can I say about Katrina and Vlad? Again, I'm an articulate person, but I can't think of what to say that would encompass their passion and generosity they shared this entire trip. I REALLY WANT TO SEE KATRINA BE OUR TOUR GUIDE AGAIN IN IRELAND NEXT YEAR. (hint, hint, wink, wink) She was so sweet, and had to put up with those of us (namely, ME) who wanted to linger a little longer to soak in the experience. Vlad was phenomenal, intelligent, knowledgeable, fun, exciting, encouraging... I wish he could go to Ireland with us, too. I think the only disappointment I had was the experience at Bran castle. It felt too much like we were being shoved through an attraction at Disneyland. I know that it is a popular attraction around Halloween, especially with the party going on. I was under the impression that the dinner and party would be in the castle and not outside of it. At least that's the impression I got from the description. The food was phenomenal. I didn't bring back enough chocolate or palinka! Thank you all for this memorable trip and the new travel family I have. Heather PS. Our bus driver had some mad ninja driving skills for the places he took that bus and how he could turn it around. And I do miss having Alle in our faces with the his camera. IT felt like having a personal photographer around. It would be nice if he came to Ireland as well.
By Heather R for SOLD OUT! Spooktacular Halloween in Romania with Grant Wilson! on Nov 18, 2023
The trip to Romania was perfect!! It was everything that was expected and more. The entire trip went very smooth and easy.. There wasn't any problems even though we had such a large group of people. We all got along, all 38 of us. Kayla and Vlad made the trip and us very special. Both of them did an exceptional job, the entire trip. There were no fears when we were with them. Anywhere we went we knew Vlad and Kayla had our back.. Kayla ran the trip without any issues and problem free. She is such a sweet person and a great tour organizer. Vlad our guide knew his stuff. I would take any trip that either one of them offered, even if it wasn't something I was looking for. I'd take the trip, it's guaranteed fun and a wealth of knowledge. Grant and Reanna were very kind and normal. You had no issues to approach them, the were very willing to help anyone out, or answer any questions that you may have. You felt like they were your friend, not someone from a tv show. I felt that Grant poured his heart out to the entire group, it felt very authentic and special. The two of them, Grant and Reanna exposed me to things and thoughts that I've never would have anywhere else. I'd take their next trip if I could, but it's sold out!! Most of our tour group booked it once they were done with the Halloween experience in Romania.. Bottom line, I cannot say enough good things about my trip. I still think about it almost everyday, It's been a little over a week since we've been back home. I'm miss it often and cannot wait for our next adventure. Thank you Maria for putting together such a special trip for all of us.

First time with this company. The itinerary was fascinating, which is why we booked! Had a few hiccups along the way, but they were handled quickly and professionally! Our tour guide Vlad was incredible! Knowledgeable, funny, compassionate and just amazing! And the cherry on top was having Grant and Reanna Wilson along! They are truly wonderful people! Had the best time with them! Looking forward to booking another trip in the near future!

We are so grateful for your patricipation on our Halloween Adventure in beautiful Romania. You had a stellar group of travelers and support team (Fantastic Four)! Hiccups ALWAYS happen, for that is life. We are not in a prepared Disney landscape, so things always come in that we are not expecting. What thrills me is that is was handled well and with care. We do hope you will be able to join us on another adventure! Be well and happy!

Kayla was an incredible trip organizer, Vlad was the best tour guide I have ever seen and together they made the trip unforgettable for everyone! I will absolutely be traveling with Mysterious Adventure Tours in the future and will be bringing many friends along.

Such a wonderful and beautiful review! It thrills us to know that we did not let you down! I know the Fantastic Four were amazing, but more so were all of our fellow travelers ... a new family, that you were a significant part of, Russell. Thank you so very much! We look forward in helping realize more mysterious explorations around the world, Russell. You're the best!
