About Us

How we got here and the promises we make for the future


Meet Martin

Hi there! My name is Martin, and I’m the founder of Grazing Trails. I’m a British vegan who has been based in Southeast Asia and Thailand for the past 14 years. I have over 30 years of experience in planning and operating exciting group tours all over the world, from Asia to South America, Europe and North Africa

Before starting Grazing Trails, I worked as the Asia Regional Manager for a well-respected UK adventure tour operator. Unfortunately, the company had to close due to COVID-19, but I’m now excited to offer vegan-specific group adventure trips to some of my favourite Asian destinations, as well as those highly recommended by my past customers.

Our Focus

Quality over Growth

Our commitment is to provide you with an exceptional travel experience, tailored to your unique preferences and needs rather than focusing on growth. We believe that the key to a truly unforgettable trip is a personalized approach that takes into account your individual interests and desires as well as your shared values.

To achieve this, we’ve crafted a small but carefully curated selection of tours to some of the most popular Asian destinations, ensuring that each trip is truly one-of-a-kind. We want to make sure that from the moment you send us your first email to the final goodbye, you feel like you’ve had a truly personalised experience.

While we plan to introduce more destinations each year, our focus will always remain on delivering high-quality, personalized travel experiences that exceed your expectations.

Tour Group or not Tour Group, that is the question

Why we prefer Small Group Tours

Social Interaction​

Small groups ensure better a atmosphere and dynamics with less likelihood of smaller clique groups forming, often resulting in closer friendships and long-term connections.

Superior Service

With smaller groups, our tour leaders are better able to give more individual attention and answer questions more thoroughly.


Small group tours offer flexibility and experiences not available to larger groups, and are able to access off-the-beaten-path destinations and accommodate last-minute changes to suit the group's interests.

Local Interaction

Smaller group tours are able to visit and interact with the local community more easily, respect local customs, engage in meaningful exchanges with locals, and support small businesses and organizations in the community.

It’s not just about being Vegan

Vegan Travel,
but so much more!

Our goal is simple: to provide a relaxed and responsible way for vegans, vegetarians, their friends, and families, or those who are vegan-curious to travel comfortably, safely and stress-free. However, we also believe that your travel experience shouldn’t be solely defined by your dietary or lifestyle preferences.

Travelling to distant lands, getting to know the locals, and discovering new cultures should be enjoyable, eye-opening, rewarding, educational, and, dare we say, fun!

While our vegan-friendly hotels, meals, and traveling companions are always guaranteed, we also offer a range of exciting excursions and activities – some included, some optional – that have nothing to do with being plant-based. These activities are designed to enhance your experience and allow you to fully immerse yourself in the local culture, meet new people, and have fun along the way.

Whether we’re visiting amazing and exotic temples, zip-lining through jungle treetops, enjoying a group night out, or volunteering at a local charity, you can relax knowing that even if certain activities aren’t necessarily vegan-focused, we’ve made sure they are vegan-friendly.

My amazing wife, Ae
