The first travel show that doesn't just tell you WHERE to go, but HOW to get there.
Travel guru offers tips and tricks for traveling like an insider
Tired of feeling like a helpless traveler? In the new series The Travel Detective with Peter Greenberg, CBS News Travel Editor and The Royal Tour co-host Peter Greenberg empowers audiences with travel news, must-have information and insider secrets known only to a select few in the industry.
Unlike any other travel show on television, The Travel Detective reveals the process of travel from the inside, giving viewers access to information they’ll find nowhere else — from some of the best minds in the travel industry. Every week, Greenberg and his team of experts give viewers the tools and information they need to take charge of every trip, deconstruct travel myths, and reveal the facts every traveler needs to know.
“How you travel is just as important as where you travel,” says Greenberg. “Even paradise gets painful when the airline loses your bag, you’re being overcharged on your hotel room and you spent half a day on a tour bus, or the cruise line won’t refund your money after a cancellation. I’ve traveled the world for 30 years as an investigative reporter, and The Travel Detective allows me — for the first time and on a weekly basis — to share that necessary information.”
This season, The Travel Detective will reports on:
From the wilds of Tasmania to roadside food stands in Mexico, from the cockpit of a wide-body jet in Abu Dhabi to hidden coffee plantations in Costa Rica, Greenberg’s signature “Hidden Gems” segments highlight experiences beyond the realm of traditional guidebooks. Each week, reports on the latest volunteer vacation opportunities around the world show viewers how they can help local communities every time they travel.
For those traveling by car, The Travel Detective also suggests “one-tank trips”: great, affordable places reachable on just one tank of gas.
The Travel Detective with Peter Greenberg is a production of Peter Greenberg Worldwide / Check Six Productions in association with WLIW21 for WNET. The Travel Detective is made possible by InsureMyTrip, Virtuoso and Norwegian Cruise Line.
