Under30Experiences was founded in 2012 with the mission of making travel more accessible to young people. Why?
In 2012, co-founder Matt Wilson went to the country of Iceland on his first trip after college and came back forever changed. He got together with Jared O’Toole, his co-founder at Under30CEO.com, and they realized that all of their friends had excuses as to why they couldn’t travel. Dissatisfied with the status quo, the two set out on an adventure of a lifetime…
Traveling all across the globe, Matt and Jared became obsessed with getting to know locals and finding off the beaten path experiences that you couldn’t find as a tourist. They began bringing small groups of people ages 21-35 on trips to Iceland, Costa Rica, Peru, Bali, as Under30Experiences became a real company.
With the help of their local friends, amazing network of boutique hotels, and the desire to make a positive impact on local communities rather than just see them on a superficial level, Under30Experiences has grown to what Inc. 5000 named one of the fastest growing private companies in America.
But don’t let our fancy features in places like Forbes and Inc. Magazine fool you… we are a small company of millennials who love to travel!
Under30Experiences prides itself on over-delivering on the human element of what we do, from our amazing customer experience team to making sure our Trip Leaders foster a safe, open environment where you feel safe to be yourself.
The U30X Community is full of transformational stories from people who were stuck in a rut at home, joined a trip, and went home to change their lives. As we like to say at Under30Experiences, it’s not about what you do on your trip, it’s about how travel changes you, and what you do after.
