    Toni was a fantastic tour guide. Lots of energy and enthusiasm, and very educated on the history of Philadelphia. Enjoyed our time!

    We took a half day tour with Nick on July 4, 2022. We had a group of 11 , half teens , half older. We did not want to navigate on our own on a holiday and am so glad I chose Nick. His prices were more than fair, he communicated well with me prior to the trip, and kept on schedule. I liked his sense of humor too. He is very knowledgeable and kept the tour interesting for our mixed age group. The only thing I would do differently, is to pay extra to be able to go inside some of the buildings that were talked about. That is on me, not Nick, as I booked this tour just a couple of weeks in advance of a major holiday. I would recommend and use Nick Cvetkovic Tours in the future.

    Average tour, guide was not that interactive with our small group. We have done walking tours In Several big cities in the last few years NOLA, NYC, Boston, this was in the bottom of the list

    We had Toni as our guide of Philadelphia as Nick moved us to her as he took another tour. She is charming and knows everything about the area. We chose the extended tour and it was well worth it. She adapted quickly to what we wanted to see. I’m so happy we had Toni for our tour and would recommend her to anyone.

    Nick was great at sharing the history of Philadelphia to our two boys ages 7 and 10. He also added a nice personal touch with two historical coloring books and crayons for each kid.

    Toni was WONDERFUL! She connected with my husband and I and made our time together like a long-connected story. My husband is a huge history connoisseur and thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Toni knew the timing of our tour and was able to get everything in we wanted! Definitely worth it! It is a MUST for visitors to Philly!

    My wife and I did a private tour with Nick, we opted for a longer tour around 5 hours to see more of the city and it was great. We learned a lot, and saw so much of the city. Would absolutely recommend.

  • 10-Jan-2021

    We enjoyed seeing the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, Betsy Ross’ home and many other historical sites.

    Nick was a knowledgeable tour guide with an intimate knowledge of Philadelphia’s history and central neighborhoods. Walking with him was like visiting with an old friend who just happens to love showing off his city. And then it’s capped off with a 30-minute free tour inside Independence Hall! A worthwhile way to spend an afternoon in Philly!
