At Super Vegan Travel we create compassionate tours for vegans and people interested in adopting a vegan lifestyle. We aim to expose as many people as possible to this growing movement, to fuel the vegan economy and to show businesses that there is indeed a huge market for more compassionate choices. Our small group tours allow our guests to experience a bit of everything: both city and rural living, regular sightseeing, and vegan experiences like meeting local vegan people.
Why We Started SVT
Tourism runs in our family and travel has been a huge passion for us. It has taught us about the diversity and beauty of the world but it also opened our eyes to something that is less talked about, the suffering. We witnessed a lot of abuse while travelling and volunteering with animals – dogs, cats, buffalo and pigs were beaten, shot and barbequed without a second thought. To us, there is no difference between any of these animals. They all feel the same love and pain and all have the desire to live a life free from cruelty. That is why we always try as much as is possible to find activities and products on our tours that do not come from the oppressing of animals.
Through our tours, we support businesses, organisations and charities that share our beliefs. When we are not able to support a vegan business where one does not exist (yet!), we show omnivore businesses just how big a market there is for providing vegan options. We believe that we can strengthen the vegan economy and show our clients a range of different avenues for veganism through our tours – in essence we want to encourage tourism that also creates positive impact for animals and gives fellow animal lovers hope for a better future. Together we can create change!
Who we are
We, Becky and Michiko, have been together since 2010 and were married in 2017 at the Leilani Farm Sanctuary in Hawaii. Both vegan when we met, we have been working in businesses together for the last 8 years. We are both passionate about making the world a better place for all and have spent a lot of time volunteering for various human, animal and environmental organisations. We now live in Suffolk with our two dogs, Arta and Bindi who adopted us on our travels. Becky likes to cook and we both love to eat – food is never far from our minds or mouths! Travelling has been a big part of our lives and we believe that it is through having an open mind that we can understand the lives of others, which in turn helps us to take measures to support equality for all.
Yumiko and Paul are Michiko’s parents and have been married for….a long time! Yumiko has been running tours in the UK for many years, has featured on both British and Japanese TV, written for several magazines and has published books about British Villages and the British way of life. Paul has enjoyed a long career in the film industry and has travelled extensively producing and coordinating film shoots in many countries, including Japan.
