Excellent road trip!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This series of discs does a great job of actually telling the complete story of Route 66, not just the fluff that other videos show. The interviews are interesting and if you are planning a trip, this is a must see before you go.

The set also includes bonus items such as a set of post cards and a cool map of the route. Great for collectors of the "mother road.""
Best Pie on the Route

"Not just a slice of goodness, this DVD collection is the whole pie! Enjoy with the World's Greatest Fried Chicken, a Ted Drewes Custard, blueberry/banana pie and the best scenery Americana can provide. All the Route 66 staples appear in this collection. Nostalgia is alive and well and on Route 66 The Marathon Tour.
History relived

"After reviewing the opinions of those who had this DVD set, I ordered The Marathon Tour-Route 66 and thoroughly enjoyed it. There is so much history in the interviews with people that are no longer living and those that are. What a treasure to have this DVD set. Granted it's not an entire DVD on driving the Mother Road, but there are many out there that provide that. To show the history of the Mother Road on DVD by those that helped make it the icon that it is, is overwhelming. I found the personal stories intriguing and an insight into how the 8 states that made up the Mother Road came about. I found out things I had not been able to read in books or other DVD's that I have on Route 66. There is enough of the Mother Road shown in this set of 5 DVD's that just whets your appetite to want to see and hear more. I highly recommend this set of DVD's to all roadies out there....enjoy the ride!"
