Summary:
A documentary not based on Mark Twain's title although it shares similar serio-comic characteristics. Forty American tourists, members of a Globus Gateway tour, visit ten European countries in a whirlwind two weeks. The members of the tour share their comments and experiences, as does their tour guide Mark Tinney, who influences what they take away from the trip; we hear some of his formal presentations to the group as well. Some comments also from nationals of the popular tourist spots they visit.
