What Should I Expect on a Vegan Food Tour?

Well, first and foremost, vegan food! A passionate, local guide will take you on a journey through various culinary traditions with a veganized twist. This is an excellent opportunity to sample traditional fare from vibrant street food stalls to upscale restaurants with dishes like vegan schnitzel in Munich or croissants in Paris. Along the way, you may hear stories about the chefs, restaurant owners, and food artisans making a difference in the local vegan food scene. These tours also provide an opportunity to connect with fellow vegan food enthusiasts and like-minded individuals — we can all use more veggie friends, right?

You should expect a decent amount of walking. Most tours will specify the duration and the amount of ground you will cover; it’s something to keep in mind if you have mobility issues. 

One last note: all these tours are meant to complement a trip you already have planned, so they are generally a few hours to a half day. Other vegan companies, including us, do complete trip itineraries, in case that’s what you’re looking for.
