President & Founder

Kareem is a born-and-bred New Yorker with an affinity for the city that he grew up in. As a resident of the Lower East Side, Kareem sees tourism as a way to uplift people in communities throughout NYC and it's surrounding boroughs. His early vision of showcasing New York through knowledgeable passionate locals is the foundation which Big City Tourism is built upon. Kareem's goal has always been to present New York and all it's hidden gems in the most authentic and fun way possible. After years of observing NYC tourism up-close, Kareem set in motion a model based on greeting tourists with transparency and accountability. Working closely with the top tours and attractions, Kareem's formula immediately paid off. The missing element of creating secure Point-of-Sales locations came next and Big City Tourism was born.

Kareem's bright smile can be seen from a mile away, so don't hesitate to approach and say hello when in the neighborhood.
