Dean presented a very entertaining night walking tour highlighting the "Darkside" of Aspen. It was fun and enlightening with some history thrown in. Dean is charming and knows how to make an hour walk an enjoyable way to see Aspen at night. I'll be looking for my favorite ghosts next time I visit some of these joints. Thanks Dean for... More

This was an entertaining and informative tour of the town of Aspen. Dean made it fun and kept us all engaged as he told of some very interesting incidents throughout the history of the town. The "dark side" captured the attention of our teens and kept us captivated, as well. Definitely a tour worth taking!

The Dark Side tour was awesome and a lot of fun. Dean is really energetic and knowledgeable. The tour presents a unique look at the unsung history of the Aspen area.

Dean was extremely informative as we took "The Dark Side of Aspen" tour but did it in an animated and interesting way. The night was drizzling and cool and it... More

I don't ski so am always looking for alternative things to do. This was great. Dean accommodated me by doing this tour as I was alone . He was very informative and bought Aspen alive showing me the past history of the Ute people, the silver mining and the present day ski tourism. Very informative. Would recommend to anyone who...

I love when I travel to new towns, taking a walking tour to understand the way the town and its people grew up thru the ages. We were lucky today that we had a walking tour that really spent time on the architecture, the people and legends of the town. Dean did an awesome job of relating the stories while... More

On a previous visit, my wife and I enlisted Dean Weiler for a Past/Present Tour and found it very interesting. This time we booked the Off... More

We had a great time on The Darkside Tour. Dean did a wonderful job of incorporating some local history, spooky stories and a sense of drama in our evening. We had our 9 yr. old and teenager on the tour and both were very entertained. I love to do these ghost walk/creepy local history nighttime tours in most every city... More
