In today’s episode, we’ll be talking to Diana, an official tour guide and also the founder of Madrid Vegan Tours, the first and only vegan tour service in Madrid, Spain. Diana is an accredited tour guide with a huge amount of knowledge about Madrid including all of the museums, its art history, and its architecture, and the fact it’s a vegan-friendly destination. You will tell that Diana has so much passion and love for her city and you will want to visit Madrid after listening to this podcast. Diana tells us about her services, issues for vegans in Spain, the state of the movement in Spain as well as what she (a local) recommends if you just have one day in Madrid. If you know someone heading to Spain at any time, make sure you forward them this podcast. I wish I had spoken to her before our visit last September.
