Dean gave a great tour with a peppering of Aspen history as well as some spooky ghost stories. In between story spots he was also very friendly and conversational.

Wonderful local storyteller
Sarah_S, Apr 2023
We really enjoyed the dark side ghost tour with Dean! We were trying to find a fun way to learn Aspen history with our teens. This tour was exactly what we were looking for. Dean’s a great local story teller! We’ll def do another tour next visit.
Great Aspen Tour!

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.

Fun and informative

Great storytelling. Very nice. Part of our group lives here and they learned a lot about Aspen. He even walked us to our car
Highly entertaining hour
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

Fun tour!
Linda_S, Aug 2020
Dean is a wonderful guide with so much knowledge and great at telling the story! Aspen is full of history.
Response from Host, Aug 2020
Hi Linda, Thank you for joining me. It was great to host you on Aspen's Past to Present tour the following day as well. Just a note to future guests, if a tour availability isn't found here, contact me directly at 970-948-4349 or search the web for Dean's Aspen Tours for other options.
Aspen after dark
Lindsey_M, Aug 2020
Dean is a great tour guide and you can tell he enjoys what he does. We have gone to haunted history type tours literally around the world and this one was slightly less interesting than some that we’ve been on, but Aspen may not have as much to speak of. There was also a young child on our tour (which isn’t the fault of the company) which didn’t seem appropriate for the subject matter.
Ghost tour

Fun way to learn about the history of the area, and its more colorful inhabitants of the past. Our guide was very entertaining.
