I am a big fan of the Globe Trekker series and was looking forward to seeing this episode as I am going to Chile in February. Now, I fully understand that part of the appeal of the series is experiencing the ''off the beaten path'' adventures with the hosts (In this case it is Ian). However, more time was spent showing Ian drinking with some locals and trying to get around a train conductor in the narrow corridor of a 1930s era train than on the whole of the City of Santiago. The last quarter of the tape where Ian visits Grey Glacier(?) provides some of the most fantastic views of the the landscape. I got the distinct impression that this was footage edited out of a larger show and that there will be another tape/DVD put out that will cover the parts that this one glossed over. Such as the two tapes for Brazil and Rio.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
