The Official Amazing Race Travel Companion is an uneasy mixture of a travel guide and a behind-the-scenes television show memoir. I found the memoir much more interesting. It begins with how the show was created and continues through the 2021 season.
I expected more from the travel guide. I wanted a list of things featured on the show for whichever countries they decide to feature with detailed who, what and where for each activity. Instead, the guide doesn’t cover much more than the show itself along with a street address that can be easily googled. There are few tips or tricks here.
Overall, The Official Amazing Race Travel Companion is a better choice for fans of the show rather than folks looking for travel insider hints. 3 stars.
Thanks to Simon Element and NetGalley for a digital review copy of the book.
