This DVD set is simply A-M-A-Z-I-N-G ! If, like me, you enjoy watching documentaries about other Countries/Cities/cultures then you really need to add this Set to your collection, trust me you won't be disappointed. This is a 6 Disc Set for a total of 14 hours of interesting documentaries. Everything about these documentaries is great: The footages are amazing, the narrator is great and the music is just perfect. Don't listen to people who claims the quality of the footage is not great, I think they need to buy a better TV ( or glasses ). The documentaries covers so many different cities/countries/subjects, it's really impressive. Disc 2 is about the wildlife, while disc 5 is a series of documentaries about mysterious places/the Paranormal, it shows how so many different subjects are covered in this set. This might be the best DVD set ever released by Questar, I highly recommend this set to anybody.

Here is the impressing listing for this DVD set, with the time for each segment. Enjoy ! :)

This set of DVDs cover different areas of the world. I will summarize disk 5: Mysteries of the Ancient World, which includes the story of King Arthur and Camelot as well as Stonehenge, two stories which interest me. I recommend two DVD sets for further information on the legend of King Arthur: "King Arthur's Britain" by Francis Pryor on Acorn Media and "In Search of Myths and Heroes" by Michael Wood on PBS Home Video. For Stonehenge, I recommend "Stonehenge Decoded: A Lost City Revealed" by National Geographic and "Secrets of Stonehenge" by NOVA.

This DVD set, Must See Places of the World is really worth watching. The photography
is first rate and spectacular, and the narration and music is exellemt. I cannot understand the problem that T.N. of Maryland has with the video quality. Possibly he has a bad TV or more likely he needs an eye examination--maybe new glasses or glasses period. I would highly recommend this DVD set from Reader's Digest and Questar.

I have to agree with some of the other reviewers that the viewing of this DVD leaves a lot to be desired. It's just not fun to watch. The images aren't clear; they're somewhat fuzzy. We have a big screen TV and maybe this has something to do with it, but nothing else we watch is like this. Actually, we only watched the section on New Zealand. This set was a gift I bought my husband. We weren't interested in watching the rest.

Grainy footage. I cannot decide if these are old videos that have been repackaged with a newer copyright date or if they have been burned onto the lowest quality DVDs. It is a pity because the locations are interesting. Even the credits are hard to read. Very disappointed in this product. I do not recommend them.

I was thoroughly impressed with the beauty of the photography. It took over a year of travel to make this and more to narrate and produce. It's well worth the money.

Nice photography and history and/or cultural insights. Can be nice for learning a bit more or just for having on screen during a social event.

I WISH THE MUST SEE PLACES OF THE WORLD DVD WERE SHOT IN HIGH DEFINITION. SOME SCENES APPEAR ADDED FROM OTHER SHOOTINGS
