Meet Preethi, a warm and engaging foodie tour guide who brings a rich tapestry of experiences from Hyderabad, India to the vibrant streets of Vancouver. Having lived here for over a decade, Preethi feels fortunate to reside on this unceded territory and is passionate about STEM outreach at UBC, making science and technology accessible and fun for kids.

Preethi’s love for Vancouver is rooted in its welcoming community and the endless opportunities it offers. Growing up, her mother would often liken her adventurous appetite to that of a goat as she loves cooking or experimenting with new foods on a daily basis. Preethi is grateful for Vancouver’s multicultural culinary scene. 

Preethi thrives in environments filled with conversation and respectful listening. Her background in training and social sustainability has honed her ability to facilitate people’s learning journeys. She finds energy in creating spaces where guests can be themselves and connect with topics that resonate with them.

Hosting foodie tours is a joy for Preethi, from collaborating with the team behind the scenes to connecting guests with vendors and highlighting the people behind the food that Vancouver proudly hosts.

Here are three reasons to experience Vancouver with Preethi: her ability to cater to a wide range of interests, from grungy spots to fine dining; her focus on acknowledging the land and exploring reconciliation; and her commitment to creating inclusive experiences by bridging connections between people.

In one sentence, Preethi is an authentic connector, gregarious, attentive, and kind, making her the perfect host for a memorable and meaningful foodie tour in Vancouver.

“Preethi, our guide, was wonderful! It was interesting to learn about the background of the food vendors and what makes their food so delicious and special.”
