Dean's tour was great fun. We spent 1 1/2 hours with him, walking around downtown Aspen & listening to the history of the town & being shown its notable buildings. Dean was funny, very animated & really put the town into context for us. If it had not rained, we probably would have covered some more ground, but instead we... More

He provided us with a lot of interesting stories and the tour includes a nice combination of Aspen's history, Aspen's supposed hauntings and true crime stories. The tour lasted approximately an hour and the walking... More

Dean is a charming and knowledgeable host for this one hour walking tour. We learned some general history of the town as well as stories of the murder and mayhem that has surrounded Aspen in the early days as well as more recent history.

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
