My husband and I booked this trip with other biking friends. We were all blown away with the individual customer care Diane and her team gave to all of us. They far exceeded our expectations and provided great value for our money. It is a beautiful bike ride and Diane prided herself in really knowing the route, providing alternatives, accommodating weather conditions as well as directing our path when road repair changed our route. Our accommodations were all very nice. Much thanks for a memorable adventure! Including dining on the Erie Canal!

Booking the Erie Canal trail trip with the Great American Bike Tours made our experience of this trail so much better. We were a group of 16 riders, having this company provide the support/ logistics needed for this 12 day trip allowed us to enjoy every day of our cycling vacation and make new friends at the same time. The team members are very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful as they were always there to help everyone resolve any issues that they may have encountered during their trip. In our case, it was a mechanical issue with one of our new bicycles and they made arrangements in the morning to bring us to the closest bike shop. Everything was resolved in a timely manner and we were to rejoin the group latter on that afternoon. Highly recommended if you want to ride this beautiful trail without having any worries . . .

GABA contributed to another dream come true bike trip! Great follow up having riders check in with “snack van” every designated number of miles. Leaders phone number provided if we “the riders” had any issues along our designated ride routes provided. Water and snacks provided by Diane (GABA) and hubby who also was leader at times a great plus. Met so many new and fun people from all over the US.
The extras such as Pizza nite and dinner nite out were extra great fun!!!
Hoping GABA does come up with the I Did the Erie Canal cycling Jersey. I want one when ya do Diane!

This was an on-demand tour - we had specific dates our group could do this tour and were very happy that GABTs could accommodate us. This is a wonderful ride, beautiful surroundings and lots of history. GABT provides route instructions through RidewGPS and it worked very well. Ron was our guide and provided terrific SAG support. He was beyond helpful with tips and rides when needed.

Great American Bike Tours provided a top notch experience on their Erie Canal Tour. Courteous, professional service just begins to scrape the surface of a great bicycle tour business. I hope to ride with them again in the near future!

Wonderful tour lead by the owner herself. As you can imagine, this produced terrific customer service. Hotels ranged from average (Holiday Inn Expresses and Hampton Inns) to specular (Hotel Syracuse). Daily rides averaged about 45 miles, which seemed just about right. Spectacular scenery. We took along our teenage grandchildren and they had an amazing time.

Incredible tour and company! Excellent job with logistics, hotels, route, support. and shuttling! Having co-lead rides in Europe for almost 10 years, I appreciate how well this company handled the tour's logistics. Well done!!

This was the most fun and amazing supported bike trip we have ever done. What a blast. Diane & her staff (Leeanne & Tammy) all went above & beyond to make sure every detail of our trip was maximized for fun, comfort & ease. Definitely booking another trip with this company!

We really enjoyed our customized tour of the Lake Champlain Islands with another couple. My husband and I both had spokes break on our bikes on different days of the tour. Great American's practice is for each staff member supporting the tour to have a company bike to use, but that bike is available for a client's use if a client's bike breaks down and needs more extensive service. Unbelievable that we both had spokes break! Long story short, we both could bike on all days, and Diane took care of getting bike repairs while we were cycling. Accomodations were excellent, route was well-planned.
