This lighthearted series follows Esty Quesada and actress Nuria Roca as they unexpectedly set out to see parts of the United States. But while it's billed as a reality show, sometimes the show feels more like a parody. Most of the tourist stops are clearly preplanned, and despite the lack of a script, there are occasional moments that feel directed. Nonetheless, the banter between the two women feels real (although the nuances of the humor often get lost in the subtitles), and their interactions with people along the way seem genuine.

Road Trip is a funny show, so much so that a second season was launched in 2021 and features the two celebs, along with actress Carmina Barrios, traveling around Spain. But it's the first season that U.S. viewers may find more interesting, mainly because it allows them to experience parts of the United States through a non-American tourist's eyes. It also reveals how popular culture informs much of what they know about the country and the stereotypes they have about Americans. But the best part of the show are the conversations between the cast, who are willing to look past their differences to listen and understand each other.
