“A FASCINATING ONCE IN A LIFETIME EXPERIENCE!”

RESPONSIBLE TRAVEL

“I’ll go on and on about how fantastic traveling with VegVoyages, but I’ll never be able to do it justice. Getting to know the people and experience the cultures was the best part of the trip. We didn’t feel like tourists; instead, we felt like guests. Being a spectator in a new country may open your eyes, but being a participant will open your heart. And we certainly have come away with open hearts. Thank you for a life-changing journey.”

Kate & Robert Goldhouse (Washington, USA)

VegVoyages focuses on cultural immersion, local interaction, and of course – eating lot’s (and lot’s) of vegan food along the way! We travel in a way that appreciates cultures and lifestyles that differ from our own. We respect local cultures and customs rather than imposing ourselves on them.

Responsible travel and giving back to the communities we visit is a founding principle and philosophy at VegVoyages. We feel it is important to make travel and discovery beneficial to everyone – our guests and the people and places we visit. As part of VegVoyages’ aim to bring people closer to the communities we are guests of, we regularly visit grassroot projects with our groups to raise awareness and contribute to worthy causes. From helping keep rural schools running by providing books and other materials to assisting in funding for grassroots social welfare, animal rights and care organizations.

For us travel is not only our business, but a way to do something – however modest it may be – to help communities, people, animals and other causes we believe in. In addition to direct help, we also always try to use locally grown produce and ingredients for our meals, hire local guides, cooks, drivers, etc., stay in locally owned accommodations and conduct our adventures in an eco and community friendly way as possible.

“VegVoyages is the best travel company I have ever experienced. They truly want you to immerse yourself in the culture of a country and they accomplish this!”

Shirley Dominguez (Connecticut, USA)

When you join a VegVoyages adventure you are helping to make a difference as part of the cost of everyone of our adventures goes directly to these groups and their causes and the local communities.

DON’T FORGET ABOUT THE FOOD!

“Wow! VegVoyages is amazing! Such experiences come once in a lifetime. The food was without a doubt the best tasting I’ve ever had. Thanks again!”

Tom Simpson (Perth, Australia)

VegVoyages believes that food and drink are an important part in understanding a destination’s heritage, culture and lifestyle. Mouthwatering vegan cuisine that highlights the distinctive local ingredients and cooking styles of each destination compliment all our adventures – all vegan, and all already included in your tour price.

“We had good fun, great laughs, fantastic music and the most tasty and enjoyable food ever – truly a culinary feast. Many, many thanks for a fantastic holiday!”

Debra Doherty (London, UK)

On VegVoyages adventure, in addition to introducing you to the popular dishes of the destinations we go to, you’ll also be exposed to unique regional and local vegan dishes that are found only in certain areas and villages. We love to eat – as we’re sure you do too, so on your adventure you’ll enjoy plenty of dishes you won’t find on restaurant menus that are special home-cooked and created recipes past down in families from generation to generation.

“Fantastic range of cuisines and I must admit my palette has changed! Well done!”

Jane Forder (Cambridgeshire, UK)

Whether visiting a popular local veggie café or enjoying the simple pleasure of a sweet mango at a roadside stall – our goal is to bring you the very best of vegan Asia!

For more details on the food served on a VegVoyages adventure, please see our Don’t Forget About the Food page.

EVERYDAY SOMETHING NEW…

“It’s hard to capture 16 full days of brand new experiences into words. 16 days where every turn, every new event, brought never before seen images to light. New smells and tastes from cuisines so real, so authentic, they were only experienced at the good fortune of welcome invitation into local villagers kitchens and to a seat beside them in their homes. Your tour has brought new understanding of different religions, of cultural differences so beautiful they should be celebrated, and a firsthand experience of the kindness of humanity that crosses the barriers of race, language, and daily customs. More than anything, this tour filled our heart. It filled them with hope. Hope that others can experience this tour and realize that despite our differences we are the same in many ways. Our hearts were filled with the love from the locals who opened their homes to us. With the pride they had in their heritage, customs and culture. We were touched to the point of tears.”

Luke and Alta (Seattle, WA)

On a VegVoyages adventure, everyday is unlike the next. On one adventure you may spend a day exploring an enchanting palace of an ancient Indian desert town or being guests of one of the oldest environmentalist communities in the world at a remote village, while the next day may be spent venturing out on safari into the last natural habitat in the world of the Asiatic Lions. On another adventure, one day you may be guests of a local village whose history goes back thousands of years in the volcanic highlands of Sumatra, while another day may be spent hiking in a lush rainforest learning about the plight of the orangutans.

From being guests of local communities to exploring the local underwater marine life around uninhabited tropical islands; from helping out at local grassroots community-based projects and schools, and learning how to make tasty local delicacies in local kitchens, to exploring century’s old sacred temples, mosques, cathedrals, colonial forts and backwater trading outposts – everyday is spent doing something new, and everyday is an adventure!

VALUE – THERE ARE NO HIDDEN CHARGES!

“VegVoyages has meticulously planned for us to be in many places that aren’t in the tour books, where other tourists are few and far between, where the local people have not hardened toward & don’t resent outsiders. You simply cannot buy experiences like these at any price. This is a very special experience,  enjoy and learn more than you would have ever thought possible. Thank you!”

Donna & Lou DeLurgio (CA, USA)

There are no hidden charges! In fact, you’ll often spend less on a VegVoyages adventure than if you traveled the same route, standard and taking the same amount of delicious food and drinks on your own. We supply virtually all meals throughout the adventure and even have special “festivity nights” where in addition to dinner – alcoholic drinks, juices, snacks and live music are provided at no extra cost. All entry fees, all guide fees, all entertainment, and all activities such as yoga or tai chi lessons, trekking, kayaking, island hopping, snorkeling tours, desert safari, cooking classes, biking, local dance workshops, language and cultural lessons, and many more are all included in the price of our adventures.

SELECT DESTINATIONS

“I have nothing but praise for the VegVoyages tour — I was impressed by the tour’s organization and itinerary, and the variety of interesting and off-the beaten-path activities we engaged in and places we stayed. It was definitely not your run of the mill, cookie-cutter tour!”

Jennifer Campbell (Massachusetts, USA)

Your journey is important to us! We travel to places where we have personally lived and/or worked in and are committed to offering you a personal and unique journey to the places we call home. We realize that most people don’t have the luxury or time to take many holidays, so we believe the ones you do take should be memorable, comfortable, hassle-free and fun!

SMALL GROUPS

This is not your standard tour company. The groups are small; the food is amazing; and the care and attention we received is beyond compare. They (VegVoyages) are tireless and provided us with an experience we would not have gotten anywhere else…they also expose you to the people and the culture in a way unlike any other tour company. They obviously love what they do and want to share the world with as many people as possible.”

Kelly Byrne (California, USA)

With VegVoyages, you are not just a number, but a fellow traveler. That’s why we keep to a group size of 14–18 people maximum. The small group size allows us to devote more time to making your adventure unique and personal. With small a group, we are more like a bunch of friends on a journey rather than a tour group.

ADVENTURE!

“Our trip to was amazing. We loved getting to see such a variety of villages and ways of life. We loved how genuine the trip was – we got to see people and situations how they were, not ever “presented” or “sanitized” for us. We don’t know of any way other than with VegVoyages to travel and experience a place in the way we did – eating in local villages, sharing breakfast in local homes, interacting with people we come across strolling through the countryside.”

Melanie & Phil Wood (CA, USA)

We want you to walk away with much more than a few snapshots, postcards and a t-shirt. We strive hard to make sure each of our guests feel like they are part of the destination focusing on cultural immersion and local interaction, so when you leave the country you’ll have a better understanding of its people, history, culture and let’s not forget… cuisine!

It’s important to realize that we do not try to insulate you from the realities of a destination. When you travel with VegVoyages, you should expect to see the country AS-IT-IS. From the pretty to the not so pretty, we want you to experience all the rigors and wonders of traveling in Asia. This is all part of the adventure and we look forward to sharing it with you!

“If there is one thing in life I must share with the world, it is to recommend VegVoyages. I can’t praise them enough. ”

Mark Hussey (Bahamas)

NOTE: We are not a conventional tour company. We don’t travel from one five star hotel to another. We care about where you stay and try to bring you as close as possible, including in choice of accommodations, to being a part of the destination you are visiting.

WHICH TRIPS ARE VEGAN?

All our adventures are vegan, but of course, all travelers are welcome.

ONE LAST NOTE…

Because we like animals so much, we are against the exploitation of animals in any form and we do not use them on our tours for expeditions, rides or safaris. We also do not visit zoos, “wildlife parks”, aquariums, and profit-oriented “animal sanctuaries”.  A founding principle of VegVoyages from the very beginning was and is to create cruelty-free travel experiences in which no living being is exploited in anyway, shape or form.

Thank you for your understanding.
