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.

Coming to Aspen for the first time, I had so many questions about the history of the area. Luckily for me, I was able to learn everything I wanted to know during Aspen's Dark Side tour. Dean is a great storyteller with a bounty of scary stories in his arsenal - some of which stick with you forever. This tour... More

Dean gave us a very informative tour of Aspen with lots of historical info and insight. I've been to Aspen a couple times before but learned so much on this tour. Dean does a great job of bringing history to life and showing us places we never would have seen otherwise. Well worth your time!!

Very informative tour with plenty of exercise involved. Dean even went out of his way to show us a few more sites as a bonus. Highly recommended.

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!

The Dark Side tour revealed many interesting facts about the history of Aspen. I especially liked seeing some of the historical buildings that Dean included in the tour.
