Meet The Team: Sasha Leung


Marketing Manager for Forbidden Vancouver Walking Tours

Sasha (she/her) has managed marketing at Forbidden Vancouver since 2022. She brings 10 years of marketing experience in the food & beverage and tourism industries, having worked with the Aburi Restaurant Group, Vancouver Foodie Tours, and Cycle City Vancouver most recently. 

Her experience is wide-ranging: she’s owned a record store, worked for the RCMP, and ran a food truck, just to name a few. Much like our guides, Sasha has a passion for telling stories and connecting with people. She helps to tell our brand stories through social media, design, and developing content that’s engaging. 

On her off time, you’ll catch Sasha practicing yoga, playing records, or planning her next meal (she’s a big foodie). She wanted us to remind you to follow @forbiddenvancouver to keep up with all things Forbidden Vancouver. 🙂
