"I bought this video to help with planning a Mediterranean cruise for our family next year and it was very helpful. I have been a fan of Rick Steves for many years and always watch his travel shows hoping to someday visit every site as he brings such enthusiasm and usable information. This DVD contains information on several places we have been talking about visiting for 20+ years and now we are convinced we must visit them.
In particular, the Istanbul and Western Turkey shows are full of great information and answered all our questions about whether to make stops in these areas - and the answer is YES!
Conversely, he visits Athens and shows that it may be only a one-day visit rather than several days for several reasons we had not considered. He really does give you valuable information on what to see and what may be more "hype" than enjoyment. The visits he made to other areas around Athens proved to be very valuable and now we are sure to visit those areas in addition to visiting Athens. We probably wouldn't have realized that those areas would be just as enjoyable without seeing this video. He really does cut through all the crap and give you what he thinks are the cream of the crop at each stop.
We haven't watched all the features on this DVD but having watched the Greece (2 shows) and 2 of the Turkey presentations, I can say this DVD has already been worth the money. If you are planning a trip to the area, by land or by cruise ship, you need this video!!!!
Full of good info.

"I am on my way to these four countries. After reading Rick's book, I feel more secure because of the information he shared. He did help in my planning. Always a good source of information."
