Enthusiastic and adventurous, Samantha Brown is the perfect tour guide for the most exciting places in the world. Explore exotic locales up close and personal as you may never have seen them. Samantha interacts with the locals and discovers popular landmarks many tourists miss. Plus, she discusses the culture and history of these intriguing areas and shares invaluable travel tips.
BRUSSELS, BELGIUM: Samantha visits the royal chocolate supplier, enjoys the city's legendary waffles and is surprised to find the city's equivalent of a hotdog cart - an escargot stand! That's the kind of adventure that's easy to stomach.
PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC: Behind the Iron Curtain until 1990, Prague has emerged as a top tourist destination. The city's breathtaking architecture, art, music and unique style are unlike anything you'll see anywhere else in the world.
AMSTERDAM, HOLLAND: Known for its laid-back attitude, Amsterdam is the perfect place to just hang out and soak up the atmosphere and history. Samantha hops on a bike to explore the tree-lined canals and colorful neighborhoods and checks into a houseboat for a different kind of hotel experience.
BARCELONA, SPAIN: Samantha experiences Barcelona's renowned nightlife as well as the surreal architecture of Antoni Gaudi. Stroll the picturesque medieval lanes, and explore the sidewalk markets and festive street celebrations.
MADRID, SPAIN: Sample the sensual city of Madrid with a visit to the famed Prado Museum, a stay in a hotel with a flair for the dramatic and a meal of unexpected local favorites - paella and hot chocolate.
SEVILLE, SPAIN: Bypass the frantic pace of a typical European vacation with a visit to Seville where locals think the world is moving way too fast. Moorish castles, Gothic cathedrals, Spanish wines and tapas await those ready to enjoy life to the fullest.
LISBON, PORTUGAL: This longtime city of adventure continues to be one of Europe's most exciting places. Samantha visits a coffeehouse to experience "fado," a music inspired by such emotion that no other nation has duplicated it, and stays in a luxury hotel that was formerly a royal palace.

I bought this DVD solely for the Amsterdam and Madrid episodes- I didn't care about the other cities. In the Amsterdam episode, she showed the city's beautiful canals and parks. She also visited the Anne Frank museum. That was the only time that I ever saw Samantha speak in a somber tone. Samantha really shocked me when she went to a "coffee shop" towards the end of the episode as well as the Red Light District. Prior to this episode, I thought of her as a blonde Rachael Ray.
The Madrid episode began with her riding this high speed train. Madrid is an underrated city. It's actually larger than Paris, but not as popular. She went to the Plaza Mayor, which is an outdoor plaza full of shops and restaurants. Samantha made the mistake of stopping by when it was raining and the place was empty. That's why I subtracted one star. She also visited the Prado Museum and this nice looking park. The funniest part of the episode was when she bought cookies from the nuns. The episode concluded with her showing Madrid's exciting nightlife.
I didn't watch the other episodes but if you're just interested in Amsterdam and Madrid, buy this DVD.
I can understand why she was awarded the Emmy for 'Outstanding Lifestyle Directing".
