Great travel show that really gets you to know the places!
21 October 2001 | by See all my reviews

This show is really excellent, all the travelers are funny, and are good hosts, the only travel show that is funnier is "Travelers"!

You really see the culture, and get to know the people in the countries, I think that Discovery Civilisation made a good step snatching this show away, Megan is my favorite traveler, my favorite episodes are Egypt and India.

Enjoyment: 5/5 Violence: 2/5 Family Viewing: 4/5

Rating: 4 & 3 quarters out of 5.
