Movie Reviews

Globe Trekker: Destination Greece
Shane Lukas | Toronto, Canada | 07/20/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Taken from the "Pilot Guides" Television series, Destination Greece includes two episodes, Mainland Greece (hosted by Christina Chang) and the Greek Islands (hosted by Megan McCormick).
While you will find some of the prominent tourist destinations in each episode, Globe Trekker focuses more on the lesser traveled routes in the countries and you share the personal experiences of each traveller through they're journeys.
These episodes are uniquely intimate in their presentation and you really get a feel for the country and its culture. It is a real treat to watch these episodes!
One event leading to the Firewalking Festival in the Mainland Greece episode is particularly compeling and we really see the personal depth of the presenter. It is a wonderful DVD, definately worth the price and there are a number of discs in the series spanning much of the globe! Special Note: This particular DVD in the series seems to be rather difficult to find. If you are interested, you may have to wait awhile for it to ship."
Not as good as I thought
A. Rhoads | Washington DC USA | 12/27/2005
(2 out of 5 stars)

"The first woman doing this DVD was disrespectful to Greek culture. She constantly laughed behind the locals backs, it was very unprofessional and rude. Overall, both sections failed to show enough of the country. In the beginning one gets the sense that a lot of historical sites were going to be reviewed, but so. Not a lot is going on in this DVD. It really failed to capture Greece's spirit and culture."
Disrespectful to Greeks
George Zombakis | Houston, Texas United States | 04/29/2007

"I thought that Christina Chang made an absolute fool of herself in this video. She moon walked on the Acropolis in front of the Parthenon, and spit out the mastic that she was offered on Chios. The Globe Trekker hosts need to be more respectful of the foreign countries they visit."
Jennifer Burns | Saint Charles, Missouri | 05/16/2007

"Either Greece isn't spectacular, or these hosts just didn't do a good job of presenting it to us. I was looking forward to watching this video, but was sadly disappointed. I hope that visiting Greece will change my opinion."
