The Vegan World is the idea of Jon Ruben, a vegan since 2007. Jon has worked in the travel industry for 30+ years and founded Golf Escapes, one of Europe’s largest specialist golf tour operators in 2002. Golf Escapes has now evolved into The Sport and Travel Group, which also encompasses Signature Safaris and Southern Sounds as well as The Vegan World.

Jon’s family of 3 daughters, 2 dogs and 1 wife are all vegan, and all the humans are devout fans of the Happy Cow app when travelling.

With the welcome rise in veganism around the globe, Jon is using his travel industry experience to offer vegan tours for like-minded people to enjoy the great choice of plant-based culinary experiences available for travellers to enjoy.

About our Tours

The tours often encompass events like vegan festivals and cookery classes and are open to people of all nationalities. We also welcome non-vegans with an open mind to travel with us and enjoy the wonderful culinary experiences offered by plant-based cuisines around the world.

Wherever possible we have included accommodation in vegan-friendly establishments (sadly vegan hotels are extremely rare but we hope to encourage change).

We are aware that the vast majority of our tour participants will be flying to your chosen destination. We would urge you to plant trees to help offset your carbon footprint and to use our itineraries as part of a longer stay in that area.

Flights are not included in the prices advertised but we can point you in the right direction.

All our tours are financially protected by the UK’s famous ABTA organisation so 100 percent of monies paid to The Vegan World are safe, even for non-UK residents.
