The new era of luxury is no longer solely about extravagance.  It comes with a responsibility.  A responsibility to actively engage with and be part of the global community and be a steward for our planet. 

The best part is – we don’t have to give up anything to have both.

– Justin Smith

Mission Statement

The Evolved Traveler’s mission, in partnership with our guests, is to invoke travels’ most significant purpose: to build a broader sense of global community. We create our journeys to promote actionable, sustainable tourism and responsible travel opportunities to initiate an uplifting “benefit to all” approach that positively impacts the traveler, the communities they visit, and our environment.

Why The Evolved Traveler

A Benefit to All Approach

New destinations allow us to put ourselves into an unfamiliar environment where our senses become heightened, where we can be our best selves and fully enjoy the process of exploring. We are openly receptive to engaging in experiences that are meaningful for us and for the people and communities we visit.

We consciously and passionately participate in the pursuit of the greater good.

Giving Back

The Evolved Traveler is deeply committed to responsible travel, and as part of this dedication, we allocate a portion of the proceeds from every journey to carbon foot offset and plastic reclamation initiatives and empower community-based social enterprises. This approach ensures that your travels are not only for our Guests but also bring positive contributions to the communities and environments you visit.


Our goal is to make a positive impact everywhere we travel. That’s why we’ve composed our own sustainability guidelines. Sustainability is about looking after the environment, respecting local cultures, and supporting the communities we visit. We also encourage everyone we work with to participate in sustainable tourism in ways that work best for them. It’s about doing good in a way that’s doable for everyone involved and leaves a lasting, positive footprint.

What Our Guests Are Saying

Justin and his team at The Evolved Traveler not only helped us plan and coordinate our trip to the Amazon, but they also worked with us to plan a fabulous one-week extension to Cusco, the Sacred Valley, and Machu Picchu. Leslie and I want to thank The Evolved Traveler for making our dreams come true with such an unbelievable vacation.

– Phil E.

I just returned from a luxurious 7-day trip to San Jose and the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica. The Evolved Traveler, and the trip itself, exceeded all of my expectations. All of the complexity was handled for us (scheduling multiple airplane trips, hotels, excursions, tours, etc) so we barely needed to prepare at all besides following the customized packing list, tipping guide, and other materials that they provided. The Evolved Traveler’s attention to detail and philanthropic mission are what stood out to me. This is the way traveling should be. I will definitely be using them to plan my next big trip.

Thanks to Justin Smith at the Evolved Traveler for arranging an over-the-top Australian honeymoon vacation. We were blown away by the luxurious elegance and epic adventures. Every detail was meticulously managed. We cannot imagine a more perfect way to celebrate our new marriage! So appreciated!

– Scott T.

“The Evolved Traveler went above and beyond to plan the honeymoon of our dreams in Bali!!” The Evolved Traveler was referred to us and after speaking with them, we knew they were more than just your average travel agent. The Evolved Traveler was extremely knowledgeable and helped us figure out what the best destination for us would be after talking about our preferences. Everything was perfectly planned and I know we couldn’t have planned nearly as great of a trip on our own! They also planned a couple of surprises for us to help celebrate our new marriage, and they were beyond amazing experiences! We can’t thank the team enough and we are looking forward to the next opportunity to take an Evolved Traveler journey!
