Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May are back with The Grand Tour. A show about adventure, excitement and friendship... as long as you accept that the people you call friends are also the ones you find extremely annoying. Sometimes it's even a show about cars.

Behold the Cecil B DeMille/Auto Trader crossover you hadn't realized you needed in your life.

The Grand Tour is the Mrs Brown's Boys of shows about cars, something silly and old-fashioned that really shouldn't have found such an enormous modern audience, but somehow really has.

Between the gear head banter and intoxicating visuals, The Grand Tour makes for a sweet escape from the real world we all live in.

Fans frankly weren't sure if they'd ever get a chance to see their favorites back on-air. With The Grand Tour, they very much are-now uncensored... and we can't wait to follow them from California to Johannesburg to Portugal and beyond.

It's hardly a complete reinvention of the successful Top Gear formula but, with the new incarnation of the latter being received like an elevator fart, it never had to be.

Nov 28, 2016 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

It doesn't feel like an exciting new start. It feels stale. Forced. Baggy. Tired. And this is because, as well as transplanting the presenting team across from Top Gear, it has also carried across the baggage that made latter-day Top Gear fall flat.

Some parts of the show are flat but mostly it works...

Dec 7, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

When it comes to the cars, The Grand Tour delivers gearhead porn in spades... Clarkson, Hammond, and May's love for machinery... is still present, pure, and appealing, even with the shift in networks and formats.

The trio's chemistry remains as brilliant as ever, the toys just cost a lot more.

Nov 20, 2016 | Full Review…

Fans can rest assured Top Gear hasn't gone anywhere, it's just hiding out at Amazon under a different name.

Audience Reviews for The Grand Tour: Season 1

  • Sep 05, 2019
    Absolutely love it! The trio makes a new "top gear" and it's amazing!
  • Mar 29, 2019
    Great show. Glad these guys went to amazon. Not having to deal with stupid censorship makes the show even better.
  • Mar 15, 2019
    It's hard to accurately describe why, but this show is very easy watching and entertaining.
  • Mar 03, 2019
    I�����m not usually big on car shows but this is so much more. Humor, adventures, and cool cars to top it off. Love this show
  • Feb 13, 2019
    Theese guys show that they were "top gear" great laughs, great cars and a lot of knowledge
  • Jan 29, 2019
    I love the boys - been watching from day one of Top Gear - but this just seems strained and acted. A distant shadow of what it was.
  • Jan 20, 2019
    Amazing show, the three of these presenters make music of cars. Well worth the subscription to amazon prime.
  • Mar 03, 2018
    The Grand Tour is why i'm paying for amazon prime PERIOD
  • Feb 25, 2018
    The Grand Tour is even better than the previous show. more cash flow is resulted in a much more brilliant tv product. Season 2 is better than Season 1 in my opinion. the fact that the tent is always in the same location is meaningless to viewers. personally, I find the segment Face Off a bit to long. that’s the only modification I suggest. all the rest, and I actually mean all of it, is very interesting, very entertaining and stupendously conduct. to the people that argue against the mocking style, I want remember just this. they can. and they’re brits. you’re free to switch channel.
