Reviews - What do our customers think?
Love it!  Mar 21, 2010
I love watching this series. I think Albin and Melanie are great and allow you to feel like you are experiencing everything with them. They are also seeing everything for the first time, so hearing "Wow" and "Awesome" are expected!! My favorite episode is their trip to Alaska.
Amateurist  Jun 8, 2009
I think this DVD could have been done in a more mature manner. The couple kept saying, "wow" instead of describing what they saw or did...
Great photography - awful hosts  Jun 4, 2009
I would have to agree with a previous poster that the hosts ruin this collection for me. However, I cannot give it one star because the concept is great and seeing the book brought to life is wonderful. That being said, Melanie and her husband come across as being criminally stupid and, more often than not, my wife and I felt embarrassed that the editor allowed their inane remarks and questions to remain in the final product.
I found it best to listen to the indigenous peoples when interviewed and to mute when the esteemed "hosts" start to speak.
Loved it! Others are overly critical of the couple  Dec 1, 2008
I watched this show when it was on TV and am probably going to buy it for Christmas for my parents. I loved it! It was a great introduction to some beautiful sites around the world and I can't wait to share it with my family. It will be a great way to expand the world of my younger siblings who have not traveled more than a couple states away from their home.

The others who posted about the hosts being boring or ill informed must be hard core international travelers or possibly even just hard core Travel Channel watchers to have been so horribly disappointed. I felt another opinion had to be added here to balance them out.

There is a narrator and there is the couple who won this opportunity. THEY ARE NOT PROFESSIONAL HOSTS and nothing was scripted for them. I thought the narrator did a great job with the more technical travel information and I thought the couple reacted to the experiences similar to how I would have in their situation. They seemed to make an effort to be respectful of everyone involved in their tours and often seemed like they endeared themselves to their guides with their enthusiasm (although this could have been fostered by the camera crews and influx of money and publicity the show would bring).

Their actions probably fit the uncultured American stereotype but I can't see how they could have had enough preparation time for every location with the whirlwind tour to satisfy the critical reviewers out here. If I ever scraped up the money to visit even one of these locations I would plan for 6 mo to a year and certainly would not be able to travel in the extravagance they had. But that is what makes it more fun to watch! Even with all the planning and research I am sure I would have plenty of American tourist stereotype moments like asking "who is their most dangerous predator" about a pack of elephants. Of course its humans, but you try to think of something witty to talk about at location after location.

The Discovery Channel could have planned in some preparation time for each location and even provided some study materials to the couple, and I guess based on the negative responses I would suggest they do that if they have another season of this.

A travellers series for the new traveller or the non traveller  Nov 16, 2008
This series is a little bit awkward in its attempt to show you new places through the eyes of two new travellers. The hosts are what they are, inexperienced tourists who don't offer great insight but rather two average characters to follow on their travels and to see a little bit of how travelling might affect the inexperienced. As an enxperienced traveller I didn't find their insights interesting. It is really a very basic traveller's series targetting those with little or no previous knowledge. In this respect it's enjoyable and offers some ideas about where to go, what to eat, where to stay and what to do. For a serious traveller it unfortunately falls short. The only other draw back is the focus on expensive life styles and places to stay. At times it can be a little boring as these high class places do not appear to be as interesting as the real tourist attractions or real life on the streets that are also presented. I prefered episodes that were not set in wealthy countries as they seemed to delve more into things that as a traveller I might be more likely to do. The episode on France was particularly boring, which is unfortunate, as it's the number one tourist destination in the world. The episode on Brazil on the other had was actually enjoyable, presenting me with some good ideas for a holiday in the this site or Rio. Visually this program is lovely. It isn't the greatest thing I've ever seen, but it offers some nice images and scenes.

Overall, this is a good program for those with little or no experience, for those interested in not getting off the beaten track too much (or even staying in high end places) and for those who don't really watch travel programs too much and might enjoy watching some new travellers discover the world. For anyone who has been around a bit I would give this one a miss.
