Dean offered an excellent perspective of Aspen's history, and being on foot was a great way to see the town! I would recommend it to anyone interested in learning little known facts about this gem in the Colorado Rockies.

I am so happy I did this tour. Dean gave an interesting and engaging look into Aspen's history and colorful past, and the 90 minutes flew by. This is a great way to get to know such a charming town.

We took both tours and while they covered some of the same physical areas, the stories were different and added to each other. I have been in Aspen many times and I learned more about some of the history along the way but he tours still added to that info to make it a worthwhile addition to our visit to... More

My father and I were looking for something to do one night, and we decided on the Darkside Tour. Dean was an excellent guide, he really knows his stuff. He was very considerate of everyone in the group, and never failed to surprise me. We were lucky enough to attend on a dark and stormy night, which made it all... More

I had some free time alone and I chose Dean's Past to Present walking tour. Dean was very knowledgeable and made the walk interesting and fun. While there isn't a great deal to cover, Dean kept our interest and gave me all the tools I need to take friends around the town of Aspen. Dean has a very nice and... More

We have now been on 3 of the 4 Historical Tours by Dean (Aspen Walking Tours); all except the Cemetery tour on Halloween. By far my favorite was Past to Present so if you can only do one, then that is the one I recommend. However, if you have been on Past to Present, I recommend trying the other tours.... More

I had never been to Aspen before and was looking for something fun and informational. I came across this tour on tripadvisor and was elated! I have done several ghost tours and couldn't wait to learn the dark past of an old town! We met Dean at the Wheeler Opera House. It was a snowy friday night, but my boyfriend... More

My wife and I met Dean at the old opera house to start our tour at 10:30 am. Dean is dressed in character, well spoken, friendly, and very knowledgeable. We were the youngest people on the tour. I do not think younger people think of doing an activity like this, but they SHOULD. I am in my early 40's and... More

Enjoyed the tour. Learned a few new things I hadn't heard in my years living here. I'd recommend it to anyone that might like to hear some colorful history.

This was our first visit to Aspen, and as we were looking through a list of available things to do, we came across the Aspen Walking Tours. The Dark Side Tour seemed very intriguing, and since the weather was hot during the day, it seemed like a fun adventure to do at night. Dean was an excellent host and very... More
