The outspoken host wrote this in his Sunday Times column that the team was considering a trip from Saudi Arabia across to Cairo, Egypt but decided against it.

“This would be an epic journey, except it would mean crossing the Sinai peninsula and, thanks to Isis, the chances of us all arriving on the other side with heads were slim,” he revealed.

As seen on British publication Express, The Grand Tour looked into Thailand’s Andaman Islands but decided against filming there due to the presence of a violent tribe on one of the islands. It also added on that a trip to Australia would not be possible because it wouldn’t be interesting enough to fans and media scrutiny in the country could make organizing such a trip difficult.

There is no official news on when the The Grand Tour’s fourth season will premiere and the new season will focused exclusively on specials where the trio will be doing road trips in different parts of the world.
