Cassandra Peterson is known by millions of people around the world as “Elvira: Mistress of the Dark,” and we are excited to announce that Cassandra will be our special celebrity guest on our Craftours Autograph Tour experience in Romania next year.  We will visit many towns and villages where she filmed her movie Elvira’s Haunted Hills, enjoy a private dinner and tour of Dracula’s Castle in Transylvania, learn about Cassandra’s career and personal journey in a special Q & A session, and explore the culture and sights of Romania.  We have also invited award-winning director Sam Irvin to join us on this tour who will offer inside stories about filming the movie and share more about his special relationship with Cassandra. This is a rare opportunity to travel with the iconic Cassandra Peterson in a destination that is sure to give you bragging rights for years to come!  Space is limited and based on first come-first served, so call our office today before the trip is sold out!
