With a degree in geography, Kim Giovacco has had a passion for travel from a young age. After decades spent on the periphery of the travel industry—working at a well-known map publisher, the Korean tourist office, Walt Disney Travel Company, then the economic development board for Singapore–complemented by my 25 years of personal travel experiences—Veg Jaunts and Journeys was founded in 2016.
This company was created to give travelers like us the kinds of tours and experiences I had missed out on while traveling as a vegetarian, then vegan.
My tours and custom vacations are crafted exclusively for travelers who follow a vegan lifestyle. Of course, I seek out all vegan restaurants for us and engage travelers in vegan-friendly activities and excursions along the way—such as visiting an animal sanctuary or taking a vegan market tour, along with activities that reflect the history or culture of the destination, as well as supporting local vegan businesses.
As well, I also offer vegan food tours when I'm home in Asheville, North Carolina.
