Scheduled Tours

It is on scheduled, 1.5 to 2.5-hour car, van or bus tours that Dean truly reaches his stride in telling about, and showing off, his beloved Dark Corner. He’s been doing it for over 28 years. When asked if he ever tires of taking people to and through the historically significant and highly scenic spots of the Corner, he simply replies, “I haven’t yet!”

Many people marvel that he conducts the entire tour without consulting a single note. “The information and emotion is ingrained in my head and heart,” he says. He considers his greatest tour compliment to be the one given by a Tryon couple who had retired young and had traveled and toured for many years. “This is our 303rd tour from around the world in the last 23 years,” they said, “and it’s definitely our favorite, simply because it came from your heart!”
