Sometimes, the best way to plan your trip is by seeing someone else do it. Deciding whether or not to splurge on the zipline in Vegas? Leave it to someone else to do it first — and then you can pull the trigger if it’s right for you.

With “Trip Testers,” a new television series from the Travel Channel, that process is even easier. Jeff Miller and Jason Kessler, two professional travel writers (Kessler is a TPG contributor!), set out to test the country’s most famous tourist destinations, determining if the activities there actually live up to the hype.

Check out a preview of the show below:

“Trip Testers” premieres on the Travel Channel tonight, Monday, February 6 at 11:00pm ET/PT. Watch as Kessler and Miller travel from destination to destination, experiencing all the major attractions there are to offer — from Vegas to New Orleans, San Antonio and Hawaii. Leave it up to these trusted travelers to help you decide on your next trip!
