Great show, very informative, interesting guests and likeable hosts. (And please ignore that other reviewer and keep the climate change discussion. I mean, seriously...)

These two are only talking about travel tips, not the experience of travelling. The guest have so much more to offer. Make them talk about there experience and travel stories. Not just travel tips. Who cares about 10 different ways to hydrate your skin while on an airplane.

I have been loving Travel Genius since discovering it a few months ago. I always learn something new. It’s also fun to hear from guests who have some of the same travel hacks as you- I’m all about the Berocca (great for anti-jet lag and hangovers) and analogue cameras (I take a disposable on my...Read full review »

Good tips and topics, but Nikki needs to stop interrupting and talking over the guests. Maybe there is delay with her VoIP but she does so constantly in multiple episodes. Super irritating.
MrPodcast2020 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/19/20
This is my favorite podcast! I listen to a lot of travel podcasts, but Nikki and Mark just work so well together - they’re fun, interesting, and always have something to say. I wish they could come out with more podcasts, but I’m not complaining. :)

Can almost binge listen to this! Great tips. Just wish it had a “episode brief notes” you could pull up after that lists the main points. Easy to listen to these upbeat podcasters.

Very informative but keep the climate change politics out of it
cqtiger via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 12/26/19
I’ve listened to a few travel podcasts, but without doubt, this is the one I like the best. I’ve learned something from every episode. Great format too.
pedanticus1 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 12/25/19
On my search for more podcasts I stumbled across this gem. I love the tips, although I’ve heard many before. The guests are interesting and give different views about how to travel and get the best experiences. My next query? How can I get someone to PAY for my travel!!! LOL
shell93013 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/22/19
It is by far my favorite podcast. Nikki and Mark are stupendous and the podcast is a pleasure to listen to. The information provided by this 2 extremely knowledgeable and well prepared experts is invaluable. Always looking forward to the next episode... keep up the good work!
SamuelG625 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/13/19
The podcasts aren’t so much about the destination and tourist sites, they are about how to manage better.
Robbiepolitico via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/10/19
I’m so excited this podcast is back on. Co-hosts Nikki Ekstein and Mark Ellwood deliver a high energy, fun and great travel podcasts with a lot of key guests and wonderful travel hacks. If you travel for personal and/or business you need to be listing to this podcast.
MR.M flyer via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/07/19
Love this podcast specially Nikki Ekstein’s energy and voice, great travel tips. Keep up the good work!!!
Stegold via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/06/19
Loving the podcast so far, please minimize some of the music while you’re speaking since it’s slightly hard to hear some of the tips at the very end. Keep up the great work!
akashabroad via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/05/19
The “upspeak” and vocal fry with the American host is cringe-inducing. I liked the guests and the overall approach, but she’s like nails on a chalkboard.
Apetaster via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/03/19
Learned some awesome advice/tips & brings great guests to the show.
Flowsa via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/11/19
This is the antithesis of real travel.
travelingtraveling via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/12/19
I love the expert advice that I can use as an avid traveler. We enjoy hearing their quirky spin on locations and experiences for us lovers of travel.

Where are they?
jpc0014 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/15/19
What planet are you on? Who still says ‘third world’?? Despite all these tips and tricks you present, you sound disconnected from the rest of the civilised world, talking about developing countries in such derogatory tones. A big part of the privilege of being able to travel around the world is...Read full review »

The best travel podcast on iTunes, great tips, very interesting guests. Enjoying every episode.
Nancy138 via Apple Podcasts · Czech Republic · 05/24/19
I was so happy to find this podcast after mourning the loss of Travelogue (which was my all time favorite!). I love Mark and him and Nikki are great together. I love all the tips and have found some really useful ones that I am implementing in my travels. Please, keep this podcast coming!
chirpingbird via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/17/19
I am planning a 30th anniversary for June July or August 2020. Thanks for the tips. Can you talk about travel tips and safety while traveling to Morocco. On YouTube many people of color have been mistreated. Can you speak about this
juh ade via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/12/19
Can you make them more frequent? Do you need relevant guests suggestions?
Pigeonpose via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/10/19
The hosts provide entertaining and valuable travel advice. They are great at pulling unexpected tips from their guests. Thanks, and keep it up!
T Deans via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/12/19
I agree with other posts that being Bloomberg it can be a bit too 'posh' in hotel choices, etc., but I have loved Mark Ellwood's take on travel since CNT Travelogue (why did they end it?!) and it's great to hear him and Nikki together - she has a good perspective and rapid fire...Read full review »
SeattleMe227 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/07/19
I have learned so much in this podcast! They cover a variety of topics and lesser known destinations. The hosts have a great chemistry and I loved hearing their travel stories. Great selection of guests as well! I definitely recommend.
croy9999 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/09/19
I travel all over the U.S. for work, and occasionally into Canada. Lots of long plane and car rides to fill with podcasts. I primarily listen to music, news, and current events, so I was thrilled to see a podcast specifically for travellers. I really enjoy the hosts and their enthusiasm for...Read full review »

Jfajt via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/19/19
Like other reviewers, I was looking for a travel podcast to replace the wonderful Travelogue from Conde Nast. I wanted to wait until listening through almost every episode before posting a review as the podcast is new and needs a little time to find it's footing, which I think it's now...Read full review »
Travel Genius is great. via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/07/19
I was sad travelogue ended so I was looking for a podcast to replace that and couldn’t believe I came across this AND with Marc Elwood! I love all the tips & cant wait for more!
travelwithtwins via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/30/19
This show is amazing! The bell / competitive format ensures that the guests bring new insightful travel tips to the show. As a huge traveler, I find most traditional travel shows boring — they are either basic travel tips, or just people talking about places they want to go travel. This travel...Read full review »

Very helpful travel tips!
Podguy4000000000 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/18/19
I was attracted to the episode about travelling solo, one of my great passions in life, and I learned to a) carry a deck of cards in my hand luggage and b) to request a steam iron from the concierge to make my business attire presentable. So is this a travel podcast, or is it a business travel...Read full review »
actual GenX person via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/14/19
I started this podcast because of Mark Ellwood. This is definitely not any where near as good as the Condenast Travelogue. I’m sad that one is over, because it was absolutely the best.
michelle0733 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/11/19
Great podcast, some of their tips are just incredibly clever!
LEFY9 via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 01/03/19
Even as a seasoned traveler and former hospitality and travel executive, I get a kick out of the fun and fresh Travel Genius content. Mark is always a dream to hear live and he has a lovely way of making his guests feel like the authorities even though he clearly has been traveling all over the...Read full review »
Alex90212 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/02/19
I’m not sure what audience this is supposed to be for. First of all, a conversation about the difference between luxury and ultra luxury hotels (with not even a mention of cost) is irrelevant to 99% of listeners. Your “hacks” should already be known by anyone who can afford to stay at the kinds...Read full review »
Tired of getting spammed! via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/28/18
I rarely write reviews, but this podcast is so awful that I felt compelled. Not only is the advice trite and useless, but the hosts seem largely interested in listing the luxury hotels they’ve stayed in. The icing on the cake for me was the show on traveling alone. The advice was, in short, feel...Read full review »

I got a superb tricks the very first time I listened to the podcast . Fun to listen to. I love the Adjudication of the Bell!

Great guests. Torrid pretentious hosts.

Male hosts rising inflection makes it a hard listen
Pmffn via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/04/18
Love the amazing insider tips. And I could listen to Mark Ellwood all day.
llsnyc1 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/29/18
Cannot stand both Nikki Ekstein’s voice and what comes out of her mouth. That’s the first and last time I listen to this show.
cornettesracket via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/27/18
This is a very fun and useful podcast in that they go to great lengths to point out the best travel tips. The guests are amazing and the whole podcast is on-point. Well done!
TonyOU812 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/27/18
As someone who loves travel but doesn’t necessarily consider themselves good at it, I find this kind of thing to be really fun and handy. Who doesn’t love a hack or ten?
Crovzar via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/15/18
The hosts have such great energy!
