Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May have been filming the
first season of the highly anticipated Amazon Original Series, The

portion of the show takes place in a traveling tent, in locations
ranging from Johannesburg to California, Whitby, England to Rotterdam,
and Lapland to Nashville.
Amazon is also announcing the launch of The Grand Tour skill for
Alexa-enabled devices including the Amazon Echo and Echo Dot. In The
Grand Tour skill, featuring the voices of hosts Clarkson, Hammond
and May, customers will receive a new clue every Thursday about what to
watch for in the upcoming episode of the series, and new trivia will be
released each Saturday. Fans who are truly “on the tour” and answer all
three questions right will unlock exclusive video content. US customers
who enable and use the skill between November 19 and December 22 will be
entered in a weekly random drawing for a chance to receive a $25 gift
card from Amazon.com. In addition, customers also can engage with The
Grand Tour presenters via specially-recorded alarms and additional
content. Here’s a hint—ask Alexa if she was invited on the Grand Tour.
