One of the teams that could work well with the Geo Traveler is having Ningguang as your main DPS.

The Geo Focused team consists of Ningguang as the main DPS. You also have Fischl and the Geo Traveler as the Secondary DPS, and finally, Venti as your support and utility character.
This team works well in boss fights and deals massive AoE damage. Having two Geo elemental characters in your team also gives you an Elemental Resonance, which increases your attack DMG by 15% whenever a shield protects you.
This Cryo Team focuses on Chongyun as the main DPS. This Cryo team composes of Chongyun, Kaeya, Venti, and the Geo Traveler. The Geo Traveler and Kaeya will work as secondary support damage while having Venti as a utility and support character.

The Geo boulders you summon could also work well in trapping your enemies if you pair them with Venti's skill.
