Dean did a great job walking us around Aspen. We learned about Aspen, ate and drank our way through the town! Some of the stops included Justice Snows, BBs, Hops Culture and the John Denver Sanctuary Park. I really enjoyed the PDA drink at Justice Snows. Thanks Dean!

We took the "Dark Side of Aspen" tour, and it was an absolute blast. Dean is friendly and incredibly knowledgable about local history, and was happy to dive into side stories and answer history questions where the group was interested. I learned a lot and had a great time.

Dean was so informative and fun-it was the highlight of our Aspen visit- after our tour he suggested places to eat, shop and view. There were 6 of us and EVERYONE LOVED THE TOUR. Highly recommend it!

He provided us with a lot of interesting stories and the tour includes a nice combination of Aspen's history, Aspen's supposed hauntings and true crime stories. The tour lasted approximately an hour and the walking... More
