Attention True Crime Enthusiasts and History Lovers, this Tour is a Must-See!

Dean's enthusiasm for history, Aspen and everything he shares with you comes across from the get-go -- You can tell he's constantly seeking new sources to expand his tales and is eager to make the experience as interactive as possible (including encouraging you to SCREAM!). Definitely a must-see early on in your trip to help Aspen come alive!
Richard_N, Nov 2021
Dean was incredible. He knew so much about the city and was able to answer any questions we had. He really got into the role and made such a fun experience. We were in aspen 3 days and this was my girlfriend and I’s favorite part. It really made the city come to life for us.

Aaron_S, Feb 2021
Great tour. A really fun way to grab some quick history mixed with some entertaining stories of murder, mayhem, and spirits.
Nice walking tour with historical information about Aspen
Linda_D, Dec 2020
My husband and I really enjoyed this tour. Dean was a great guide and had lots of interesting stories about the history of Aspen. Due to the pandemic, masks required outside made the interaction of the group less than optimal. We would recommend this tour!
Interesting Tour
Susan_S, Oct 2020
Dean is an amazing host/tour guide. He is a wonderful historian. We went on the Ute Cemetery Tour. He vividly made those departed come to life with his stories of their lives & what was going on in and around Aspen at that time. Highly recommend.
Great tour!
Kurt_S, Sep 2020
