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

Dean was very knowledgeable and did an excellent job catering the tour to our needs and wishes; the dark side of Aspen. His tour is polished, not cheesy but authentic, and he keeps you wanting more. A must do!

I am a Colorado historian who loves to go on haunted history tours whenever the opportunity presents itself. I find that it is a fun way to learn about a town. I could'nt wait to go on Aspen's Dark Side Tour because I had heard so many good things about it! Right away I could tell that the guide was... More

Dean gave my family an awesome experience by taking us on the "Dark Side" tour of Aspen. I'd been to Aspen a million times, but never learned too much about the history of the town. Well, that all changed during Dean's tour! He is extremely knowledgeable about the history of Aspen, and the area, and tells it in such an... More

As you can tell by all the other excellent reviews of the Aspen Walking Tours, they are not to be missed. What we appreciated most about our tours (we took the Dark Side Tour as well) is that they were a great basis for our vacation in Aspen. Knowing some of the history and tales made our experience in Aspen... More
