Informative and enjoyable walk around town. Loved all the stories and history that I learned. Wish I had done that earlier in the week. I would have found out about walking along the river sooner. Dean was great story teller.

We took Dean's Aspen historic downtown walking tour and loved it! He was well informed and interesting, with great stories. Dean could answer any and all questions. The walking tour exceeded our expectations and we would highly recommend.

Our group joined Dean for the Aspen Cemetery Tour in the fall of 2016. Dean was an excellent host as we moved through the cemetery - between the historical tales and the entertaining asides from Dean, it was a wonderful time that chilly evening. We...More

We have done this Ghost tour four times, bringing different groups of family and friends, and it never gets old. Dean makes it so much fun and we always walk away entertained with great tidbits of Aspen history and legend.
