About this trip

Divinely selected places have secrets and mysteries within them that cannot be explained. They are found around the world in the most obscure corners. Hand-picked extraordinary places have been curated so that you can divulge into their wonder. With awe, we will then explore them … together. 

Mysterious Adventures Tours is proud to offer you a once-in-a-lifetime journey to Romania, in celebrating the birth dates of two Vampiric Masters ... Bram Stoker and Vlad Tepes III (The Impaler), both born on November 8th! 

“I am Dracula, and I bid you welcome …  to my house.
Come in, the night air is chill, and you must need to eat and rest.”
Bram Stoker, Dracula

Almost entirely due to Dracula, Romania has long been associated with horror and darkness. Just the name Transylvania conjures up an image of romantic darkness. Deep valleys, beautiful mountains, and a legacy of death. If any country is haunted, Romania is. Imagine tracing the steps of Vlad Tepes III Drăculea, The Impaler. 

On this tour, we dedicate our explorations and honor Bram Stoker (The Author) and Vlad Tepes III (The Impaler), both born on the same day of November 8th. 

James Annitto, whose demonology and paranormal investigation skill will take this experience to another level, will guide you through this magical trip! Our group will start in Transylvania and follow secret trails of Romania. Be introduced to Romania’s most historically haunted, many a significant part of Vlad's journey through his life.

The Savannah tour was absolutely one of the best weekends of my life! We had great investigations of the Savannah Theater and Moon River Brewing, accommodations at the 17hundred90 inn were amazing, and Dave Schrader and Shane Pittman were fantastic tour ambassadors! The best part of the weekend though was how wonderful my fellow travelers were! Great memories and lifelong friendships were made on this trip! I highly recommend booking a Mysterious Adventures tour!

Group was too big. Spreading people across multiple hotels made it hard to get to know others and feel part of the group. I don't think the zoom calls were necessary. Everything could have been done by email or online. The investigations were good, but again, too many people! The local group was very good and helpful. Never heard why the restaurant we went to for the farewell dinner was supposedly haunted. Would have liked more organized meals together.

Mysterious Adventure Tours promoted a ‘spirited’ adventure in Savannah and delivered. Owner and tour guide, Maria Schmidt, went to great lengths setting up the tour to ensure quality, one-of-a-kind experiences were had by all. Celebrity ambassadors Shane Pittman and Dave Schrader always made sure everyone was involved and taught us some new thoughts on and ways of investigating. Plus, it was fun!! Hated for it to end, but looking forward to our next adventure with MAT this Fall in France.
By Jodi D for Searching Supernatural Savannah with Shane Pittman & Dave Schrader! on 07 Mar, 2023
This trip was packed full of things to see and do. Tracey Ash took us through the metaphysical portion of each site to better connect with our souls. Food wise, if you're a picky eater, like I am, you may want to bring snacks with you. When they recommend toilet paper, BRING IT. And have it with you. Be prepared for the itinerary to change at a moment's notice. I would liked to have had a day time experience at the 3 pyramids in Giza and more time at the Sphinx. I do not recommend the incomplete Obelisk as it did not interest me. Just rocks.
By Lisa C for Dave Schrader's Egypt Obscuro on 06 Mar, 2023
I would describe this trip as a dream come true. Somehow we managed to do everything I ever wanted to do. It was exciting, insightful, metaphysical and spiritual. Maria organized this trip perfectly and considered a wide range of goals and interests. No room for improvement. Thank you Maria!
