No, while we’d love you to give Veganism a try we’re certainly not here to pressure you. We’ll do our best to illustrate that going Vegan in Melbourne is one of the best ways to meet new and fascinating people & businesses, enjoy amazing food and feel comfortable that you’re making a difference in the world.
Discussion and conversation is encouraged, but all we ask is that you respect the beliefs of the other Vegans on the tour and understand that it is a tour based on the philosophy of being Vegan.
Our first priority is that all the venues are 100% plant based or vegetarian, and we’re passionate about supporting and encouraging businesses to make the shift towards being Vegan. Sometimes, due to availability, we may need to visit venues that offer animal products but have a large selection of unique Vegan options.
Depending on the meal and how much fun we’re having, we spend from 30-45 mins at each venue. Allowing you enough time to savour the food and enjoy the company with other guests.
Each tour can differ slightly, depending on the day and time of the week. Meals range from Asian fusion starters to Israeli street food or 100%plant-based gelato and our non-food stops may be to vegan skincare or fashion stores. We work with our partner businesses based on their availability to provide the solution we think is best based on the group size and dietary requirements.
Absolutely! All tour guides on Melbourne Vegan Tours are passionate vegans that are involved in the Melbourne Vegan community and are working to grow the Vegan movement across the city and the country.
