We had SO much fun cycling through the Santa Barbara wine country with Active Tours! We were pampered and fed and all we had to do was ride and relax! The food was good, the guides were wonderful and we really enjoyed spending some time with new friends! REALLY nice bathrooms, pool, hot tub. Don't let your biking skills or... More

We did the Yosemite Fall Hike/Photo tour with Josh and Corey from Active Tours. The guys did a great job with both group and personal instruction on the cameras. They were detail oriented in thier preparations and organization. We took fantastic pictures with pretty basic cameras, really got our photography blood flowing. And Corey is a pretty good cook for... More

I did the photo tour which begin with a brilliant day and was complimented by our instructor Josh who made all feel welcome no matter the skill level. My hope was to take away at least one new piece of information to make me a better photographer, I was not disappointed. the great thing about this tour is that Josh... More

My husband and I did the Topanga Canyon hike and photo class with Josh and Cory this weekend. It was a beautiful setting and the weather was perfect (cool and overcast) when we started out at 9 a.m. Even though I have recently taken several other photo classes and workshops, I still learned a few new things from Josh. Especially,... More

Did a Topanga Canyon hike and photo class with Josh, and had a fantastic experience. The class was small, so I got a lot of one-on-one attention from the instructor. He was incredibly knowledgeable, and always patient with my questions. I also like the way he formatted the class, combining instruction, practical experience, and demonstrating concepts with some of his... More

My husband and I signed up for this hiking/photo tour in Topanga Canyon. We live very close by and we are avid amateur photographers. We had never done this hike before. It was a great opportunity to try something new in our backyard. We had a great time and learned some great photography tips from Josh. We both felt that... More

I went on the Topanga Canyon photo hike this morning and it was, as stated, a great experience. I've always used my DSLR in auto mode (for some reason very different than shooting on film for me) and this was a great way to "go manual" and have a lot of fun in a beautiful area. Josh and Cory were... More

This was an amazing way to learn the basics of photography! I finally can shoot with my DSLR on manual mode, and be confident and proud of the photos I take. I started shooting a year and a half ago, and always used the auto mode. Now the basics of attaining the shots I want are clear and exciting, and... More

What a great way to do learn photography, what a great place for a hike --- Active Tours provided the perfect introduction to both! Josh is a patient and very effective teacher, and I really enjoyed his "learn by doing" approach. His explanations are clear, and he makes sure you understand by providing lots of examples and giving you lots... More

This was one of the best hiking experiences my wife and I have ever had. Josh, the tour director, was absolutely outstanding. He's clearly a professional photographer and extremely knowledgeable. Equally important, he's an excellent teacher, explaining photography concepts and techniques to us, then getting us to try them out with our own cameras, and showing us examples from his... More
