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
