Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Overacted and overblown, pic will underwhelm commercially, with theatrical perhaps limited to friends and family."
‑ John Anderson, Variety
"Part The Graduate, part Fitzcarraldo, The Art of Travel is a tribute to living on the road less traveled. Filmed entirely on location, it offers a more rounded portrayal of culture outside of the standard Hollywood clichés"
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Movie Views
"...cloying and a structural mess"
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, OC Weekly
"...director Thomas Whelan embraces the wanderlust spirit in this enjoyable if uneven film, whose qualities often reflect the television background of most of its cast."
‑ Laura Clifford, Reeling Reviews
"It's a sturdy directorial job for a difficult movie; one that wants to spread the idea of travel as the ultimate cotton swab of life, but also engages in good times to keep the less spiritually open audience members awake."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"It's too bad that there isn't a documentary about the making of The Art of Travel since that would undoubtedly make for an interesting movie."
‑ Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
"The use of such locales as Bolivia, Nicaragua, Panama and Peru adds to the exotic flavor of the film."
‑ Robin Clifford, Reeling Reviews
"Travel is an ambitious, involving and extensive travelogue that challenges the imagination. [A] feasible fable that allows one to remain contemplative and connected"
‑ Frank Ochieng, Movie Eye
