Patient & Knowledgable

“Our group from Fort Worth had a remarkable time experiencing the public sculpture of Chicago. As a city that is growing, seeing the examples in both Chicago’s public and private spaces generated deep and substantial discussion. Cynthia proved to be all that we could have asked for – patient and knowledgeable and willing to engage the hard questions that public art always requires."

Exceeds My Expectations!

Noble Art Tours always exceeds my expectations! I have hired NAT three times for family tours and have been absolutely amazed at her passion, creativity, knowledge, and ability to engage every person, from a 5 year old to a 65 year old on the same tour! My 15 and 18 year-old nephews went from polite begrudging to enthusiastic participation in the interactive experience Cynthia created for them. NAT makes art accessible, exciting, and relevant.  You will not be disappointed!

Hugely Successful Tour

I organized a hugely successful tour led by Cynthia Noble as part of a professional women's networking group. Cynthia's passion for art is infectious. She led our group to experience art in a new and exciting way, and the tour allowed us to engage with each other during the tour and afterwards. I highly recommend Noble Art Tours to any affinity group looking for an enriching and fun experience.
