Many reviewers call "Trekking the World" a delightful family board game that blends educational elements with entertainment. They point out the resemblance in mechanics to its predecessor, "Trekking the National Parks" while appreciating the fresh elements that the global scope brings into play. The gameplay is liked for its simplicity and quick-to-grasp nature, making it a hit among players across various age groups. Overall there's a consensus that "Trekking the World" is a balanced mix of strategy and fun.

However, some people have called out a few issues, mostly concerning the movement dynamics within the game. They mentioned that the card-driven movement can lead to slow-paced turns or a feeling of being 'stuck' if the right cards aren't drawn. Additionally, the inability to move through or to the same spots as other players has been pointed out as a potential bottleneck in the gameplay, particularly in higher player counts. This aspect, they suggest, could sometimes impede the smooth flow of the game, adding a layer of unintended complexity.

On the brighter side, the aesthetic appeal of "Trekking the World" garners universal praise. The artwork, the design of the components, and the thematic resonance of the game are celebrated across the board. The incorporation of real-world destinations with accompanying fun facts on each Destination card is hailed for its educational value, making it also a learning experience.

The overall production quality enhances the immersive experience, transporting players around the globe from the comfort of their dining tables.
