|Travel the World by Train: South America
Lowest new price: $62.36
Lowest used price: $14.98
Travel five continents in a 55 country rail trip in this ten part series. On this journey, we travel through Ecuador, Peru, Brazil, Paraguay, Chile and finally Argentina.
"Awesome" is the only word to describe the vistas in the South America volume of the Travel the World by Train series. When the train departs from Quito, Ecuador, passengers are permitted to sit atop it, on the roof! (No virtual reality for these thrill seekers.) The conductor warns riders to duck under low bridges as intrepid food vendors make their way along the tops of the swaying cars. We ascend into the Andes Mountains, overwhelmed by the sheer immensity of the natural world.
The tourist excursion from Cuzco, Peru, is cushy by comparison. The views from the train windows may be just as spectacular as those on the Ecuadorian route: 9,800-foot mountains, raging rivers. But here, comely train attendants serve passengers coca tea for altitude sickness. The ride terminates at mind-blowing Machu Picchu, the mysterious lost city of the Incas. Another Peruvian trip provides rare aerial panoramas of the baffling line drawings of Nazca: hundreds of colossal, two-dimensional figures of monkeys, condors, and lizards etched into the desert hillsides centuries ago. The sight of 3,200-square-mile Lake Titicaca, at 12,500 feet the highest navigable lake in the world, is equally stunning.
A wood-powered steam train shoos cattle off the tracks in sleepy, agricultural Paraguay. Journeys through Brazil, Chile, and Argentina (including rugged Patagonia) complete this fascinating train tour of South America; all in all, it's a splendid initiation into the myriad beauties of this vast and varied continent. --Laura Mirsky

|Travel the World By Train: Europe 3
Lowest used price: $38.34
List price: $19.98
Travel five continents in a 55 country rail trip in this ten part series. On this journey, we travel from Germany to Eastern Europe and the Czech Republic.
Travel the World by Train: Europe, Volume 3 takes viewers on a journey through Germany and some of the more visually pleasing regions of Eastern Europe. Germany's famously extensive and efficient rail system is given a fine showcase here. On the so-called "Fairy Tale Road," the train stops at picturesque old haunts of those famous fairy-tale collectors the Brothers Grimm: towns such as Bremen (of the Bremen Town Musicians) and Hamelin (of the Pied Piper). The "Castle Road" trip departs Frankfurt on the Intercity Express, Germany's fastest train. This route features massive medieval edifices and such bastions of German romanticism as Heidelberg Castle, interspersed among vistas of verdant natural beauty.
Beginning in Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, a train follows "The Romantic Road," passing Neuschwanstein, the grandiose castle built by Bavaria's "Mad" King Ludwig II. Looking like "The Little Engine That Could," a tiny Czech "Rail Bus" chugs up a 3,000-foot mountain in the Bavarian forest. The Hungary trip introduces us to the beautiful capital of Budapest, bisected by the Danube River. Magyar horsemen ride Hungary's sweeping plains. Idyllic farms dot the landscape of the Romania route, which leaves the capital of Bucharest for the Black Sea resort of Constantsa. From Belgrade, Yugoslavia, through Sofia, Bulgaria (the "greenest city in Europe"), the video's last route looks eastward toward the gateway to Asia: Istanbul, Turkey. --Laura Mirsky
