In this amazing, tailor-made guys’ getaway, David and Mike see a side of Chicago that most people will never have the opportunity to experience. Bert kicks the trip off with an introduction to the latest craze in water sports: Flyboarding on Lake Michigan. After propelling themselves 20 feet into the air using high-powered water jet streams, it’s on to the edgier side of Chicago to see the gangster hotspots of the ‘20s and ‘30s on a mobster tour. And that’s just the first part of day 1!

Bert heads to Costa Mesa, CA, in an attempt to find one couple crazy enough to let him take the reigns on their vacation and flip their trip into an all-expenses-paid adventure to the Colorado Rocky Mountains.

Jennifer and Paul happen to be that lucky couple, and without knowing what’s in store, they’re in for the surprise of a lifetime. Have you ever been to an indoor/outdoor extreme sports training center? Well, if you’ve never been to Copper Mountain, CO, then your answer is no. That’s because Jen and Paul are going to Woodward at Copper, the world’s only facility of that nature, to do some indoor skiing.

All aboard! Next stop … the sunny shores of South Beach. By saying “yes” to Trip Flip host Bert Kreischer, Austin, TX, locals Nathan and Shannon have agreed to let him take the lead on an all-expenses-paid trip to Miami, with no idea of what’s in store for them. They certainly will not be disappointed.

How would you like to be given a tour of the city by one of the most successful music producers of all time — and husband of famed singer Gloria Estefan — 19-time Grammy award winner, Emilio Estefan? What about partaking in a drag race and drift at the Countyline Dragway, skimboarding in crystal-clear waters or getting turned into sand mermaids by sculpture artist, Victor Leong?

An amazing trip so far, right?

The third day of Shannon and Nathan’s Miami adventure starts at dawn, when Bert gets ready to reveal his biggest surprise of the season. Bert takes the couple to the Port of Miami by speedboat, where he informs them that they’ll also be going on an amazing, 6-day Carnival cruise to the Bahamas.

Bert and the lucky couple aren’t the only ones who got to enjoy the amenities of the Carnival cruise. Trip Flip’s senior producer John tells Travel Channel, “Our crew — who has traveled quite a bit and seen a few things — were so impressed with our VIP treatment, especially getting on and off the ship.  We felt like royalty.”

“Sometimes Trip Flip can be very spontaneous,” John adds. “The ship’s staff, crew and guests couldn’t have been nicer and more accommodating.”

Nate and Shannon are quick to take full advantage of all the onboard amenities, such as the top-level sky challenge course, and the on-ship water park, Waterworks. After riding the 300-foot corkscrew slide, it’s finally time to relax, so Bert arranges an appointment at the ship’s spa for an intimate couple’s massage.  And that’s just day 1 of their cruise!

Bert enjoys himself quite a bit, as well, with senior producer John telling us, “Whenever Bert shows up poolside, the party seems to arrive with him.”

Move over Men At Workthere’s a new group singing a tune about the Land Down Under, and they go by the name of Tom and Robin. Trip Flip host Bert Kreischer was dancing up and down the streets of Los Angeles when he came across the very lucky, adventurous couple. Little did they know, they would be given an amazing, all-expenses-paid trip to Sydney.

After taking to the sky in style (first class on a double-decker, Qantas A380 with 5-star cuisine, endless champagne and top-of-the-line amenities) Bert and our 2 lucky vacationers hit the road, heading west towards the Blue Mountains to go canyoning through waterfalls. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

When most couples begin to have children, the adventures go from cliff diving and bungee jumping to cleaning up messes and driving the kids to their soccer games. Austin locals Sara and Jake are 2 athletic parents who have had to give up a jet-setting lifestyle for a quiet home life. Lucky for them, though, Trip Flip host Bert Kreischer arrives to offer them a reprieve in the form of an all-expenses-paid trip to Bob Marley’s homeland, Jamaica.

Speaking of Bob Marley, how would you like to record a song in the legendary reggae artist’s very own Tuff Gong Recording Studio in Kingston? Or if you’re more of the adventurous type, how about plunging into the Irie Blue Hole or discovering a flaming fountain of youth at the Windsor Mineral Spring Spa?
