Vegan tours are a way of exploring a new destination without the stress of booking everything yourself or struggling to find vegan food while you travel.
On one of these vegan holidays, you can learn about the destination’s history and culture from a guide while tasting plant-based cuisine, all arranged by the tour provider.
But how can you find a vegan tour? Some tour providers offer vegan options but now there are many 100% vegan tour operators out there who set up completely vegan tours! You’ll find a list of upcoming vegan tours below.
These are the best vegan vacations 2020 has to offer!

Read on to find out how to book your vegan vacations with a 100% vegan food tour. So pack your vegan luggage, and get ready to travel!

Vegan food tours of different cities
If you’re more of an independent travel type and prefer to go on your own, rather than joining a group tour, but still want a guide to the vegan sights of a city, then a vegan food tour might be the perfect thing for you! These are usually walking tours that last a few hours or an afternoon, and allow you to get to know a city through a vegan guide. You’ll sample a variety of vegan foods from a few different restaurants, and get recommendations from a local vegan (your guide).
