Noble Inventions assisted us with our first GAP ride. Kelley was our customer service rep. She did a great job of working with us to tailor a trip with days less than 30 (+/-) miles. She found nice accommodations along the trail. We asked for a tour of Falling Waters (Frank Lloyd Wright designed home) which was arranged including safe van transfer up a narrow, not bike friendly road. She set up daily baggage transfer which was always at our next inn. She also arranged for Bill's Taxi to shuttle us from Cumberland to Pittsburgh. Communications were prompt and clear. The Ride with GPS app provide by Noble was great. The GAP is a beautiful Rail Trail and Noble Invention did a nice job of helping us enjoy it.

Noble Invention is a great company to do do business with. We worked with Noble Invention three years ago when we rode the GAP, they did a wonderful job and were very easy to work with. We booked a ride with them on the C & O Canal almost three years ago but Covid put that trip on the back burner. We were able to ride the C & O this past August/September. Again, Noble Invention did a wonderful job, choice of lodging was wonderful, the RWGPS maps were great.

My husband and I completed a 7-day self-guided trip of the GAP bike path and C&O Canal Towpath planned by Noble Invention. What a wonderful experience! It all went very smoothly, no doubt due to their expert guidance, detailed trail info, convenient GPS maps including notes on where to grab lunch and dinner, as well as their assistance in booking the best inns along the way--all of which were very welcoming to cyclists. We were also appreciative of their flexibility when we asked to customize our route to visit family in Maryland. Lastly, the coordination with the luggage shuttler and the bike rental agency (Bike the Burgh) was seamless also. Thank you, Noble Invention, for making our trip a memorable adventure!

Absolutely the best in organizing a terrific bike trip! Friendly and knowledgeable staff, super responsive and great value. They earn five stars for all aspects of a well designed trip. Great lodgings. Once we were on the trail we didn’t need to worry about any of the details. Would highly recommend and will definitely use them again. The GAP trail is a great trip.

We just returned from a 9 day trip on the Great Alllegheny Passage and C and O. Every detail was seamless. The maps were confirmed and we were constantly apprised of updates. Noble Invention may just be the best tour company I have ever had experience with.
