The series covers an extensive range of interesting topics and exotic destinations. In just the first season, Bernstein and his crew visited 15 countries on five continents. He's been practicing these travel guide skills for some time, having already hosted Digging for the Truth -- a similar show on the History Channel -- for three seasons. That series was focused on archaeological mysteries, while Into the Unknown has more of a historical angle, but Bernstein makes both series an entertaining way to learn about the world's more remote spots and history's less-well-known chapters.

He's a likable host and makes for an appealing travel companion. He obviously enjoys these adventures, and he seems truly interested in learning more about the people and places he visits. Bernstein's curiosity and thirst for knowledge makes his show a great way for viewers -- especially younger ones -- to learn some fun facts about history.
