Hey, I’m Josh and this is Active Tours a travel review, things to do, giveaway and gear review site to sharing some of my favorite places in the world. I’m fortunate enough to have the opportunity to travel all over the globe adventuring, taking photos and meeting locals and this site aims to help you travel like a pro.
I’ve solo cycled New Zealand from the top of Cape Reinga to the farthest road south in Stewart Island (3,000k+) in between backpacking 4 of New Zealand’s great treks.
I’ve spent the summer as a zip line tour guide in Juneau, Alaska while rock climbing, hiking, dodging bears, kayaking (almost dying) and photographing the summer away.
I’ve traveled to Myanmar (Burma) and trekked to meet the Enn Highlanders in Kengtung, in the Shan State. While in Mandalay I meet the most amazing locals that took my friend and me on a three-day adventure to another town to meet her grandmother, roller skate and get deathly ill while having the best time!
I’ve spent 6 weeks hiking through the jungle (Corcovado National Park), sleeping on the beach, getting our bag stolen and ziplining (Monteverde) in Costa Rica. Ziplining (100% Adventure) and hiking in Monteverde.
I’ve proposed to my lovely wife in Belize and had to act cool while a very expensive engagement ring (in my backpack) was taken to get stowed for a 2 hr boat ride to Ambergris Caye. While there we ate great food, kayaked and snorkeled with turtles.
While in Mexico I’ve was pulled over and scammed by Mexican police officers for $70 cash (always split your cash and cards), but another day drove early to visit at Chichen Itza hours before the hoards of buses.
I’ve spent 17 days traveling with my wife around Spain and Portugal eating tapas, laughing, putting the wrong fuel in the rental car (getting stuck for hours), exploring, and meeting the greatest locals.
My wife and I had our honeymoon in Sydney (don’t go to a 5-star restaurant for dinner when you have jetlag. lol) and traveled to Bali where we hired the coolest driver to take us on adventures and learn about their culture.
I’ve gone on many three day weekends Denver, Yosemite, Big Sur, Santa Cruz, Miami, Whistler, Vancouver, Oahu, Kauai, Maui, Hawaii (Big Island), Baltimore, Portland (Oregon), Portland (Maine), Pittsburgh and many others.
I’ve collected many stories and tips I’d like to share with the world and look forward to hearing your tip as well.
