Hosts Jim Gordon and Darren Parkman of "The Travel Guys" have interviewed the biggest stars in the world - including Clint Eastwood, Leonardo DiCaprio, Helen Mirren, Brad Pitt--but their travel stories may be almost as compelling as any of the interviews they've done to-date!
Along the way they've had the chance to experience strange adventures in their 8 years on-air, like: betting on coconut-plucking monkeys in Northern Malaysia; tumbling down a steep hill inside a giant ball, all for a sport New Zealanders call "zorbing"; petting a panda bear in Xian, China; seeing the stunning sites 50 feet below the water's surface while skidubing in Borneo; ; snorkeling along the Great Barrier Reef in Australia and dressing as samurai warriors in Osaka, Japan. All in a days work for the two charismatic hosts, who continue to travel the world and share their experiences with an even wider audience, with the announcement that "The Travel Guys" is now airing on four television networks across Canada including SHAW TV, OLN, CHEK and CHCH in Hamilton and Toronto. The Vancouver media personalities have written about destinations all over the world for years, and in 2004, they channeled that experience into their television travel show that began airing on SHAW TV.
"The Travel Guys" TV show is more than a travel information program; it is funny and personality driven. The series travels the world providing viewers with insight on both popular and undiscovered destinations, including tips on how to get there, where to stay, and what to see, all with a healthy dose of humor. Now in their 8th season, the show airs weekly in over 15 million households. Since launching the television show, they have filmed over 100 destinations in 50 different countries including Australia, Canada, Malaysia, Caribbean, China, England, France, Hawaii, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Spain, Thailand, U.S.A. and the annual Film Festival in Palm Springs, California.
