Travel Guides is an Australian travel series which premiered on the Nine Network on 14 February 2017.[1] The series follows six groups of ordinary Australians who take on the job of travel critics who experience the same week-long international and domestic holidays, and review the same accommodation, cuisine, and local sights.[2][3]

The series is based on a similar programme of the same name made by UK production company Studio Lambert in 2015.

In May 2017, the series was renewed for a second season.[4] In October 2017, the series second season was officially confirmed at Nine’s upfronts with three travel guide groups from the first season set to return.[5] The second season premiered on 29 January 2018.[6]

In March 2018, a casting call went out for new groups to become part of the third season for 2019.[7] The third season premiered on 5 February 2019.[8]

In October 2019, the series was officially renewed for a fourth season at Nine’s upfronts.[9]
