“Terrific fun”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

This is worth doing. Dean was great - very nice and there before us. He also provided some hand warmers for our gloves on the cold night. We did the ghost tour and it was full of interesting facts and history about Aspen. Highly recommended.

“Go on every Aspen Walking Tour you can!”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

I was in Aspen recently and went on the cemetery tour. I've been on a few of the tours, Aspen Walking Tours have to offer, and each time I've walked away thinking "That was really fun!"
Dean is very knowledgeable about Aspen's history and such a great storyteller. You will find yourself learning several sides to Aspen's history that you didn't know, all while Dean pieces together the story in such a way, you will come away thinking "What tour can I go on next?"

“A fun way to spend the evening!”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed this entertaining evening tour! Dean is an incredibly knowledgeable and enthusiastic tour guide and the stories he shared were interesting and ones we had never heard before. It was a great way to learn more about the architecture and history of Aspen that you don't usually find in the guidebooks. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a fun way to spend an evening in Aspen!

“"The Darkside Tour" - great finish to an Aspen day!”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

Dean was great. He had a challenge - make this stuff interesting for 5 teen boys (ages 15-21), a four year old girl, my wife and her mother (in a motorized wheelchair) and myself! He did GOOD - he really delivered on the fun, excitement and drama of Aspen and her history! More than one of my boys, after walking Aspen, commented that their "eyes have been opened" to the greater world beyond home...! Dean was enthusiastic about his home and gave a great tour, history lesson and "fun" tour as well. We loved it!

“An Aspen "must do"”
Reviewed July 20, 2012

Whether you're a history buff or architecture enthusiist, "Aspen Walking Tours" should not be missed. Dean is very knowledgable about Aspen's facinating history and makes it come alive for those on the tour. Well worth the small admission price and he really packs a lot into a couple hour tour.
