Enter the fictional world of the author Colin Dexter and his famous detectives as you visit sites where scenes were filmed in the old city center. Start at the stone monument of the Martyrs' Memorial outside Balliol College, and continue to venues such as the luxury Randolph Hotel and the traditional White Horse pub.

    One of the best tours that we have been on anywhere in the world. Such passion for the subject matter and detailed knowledge. Also a lovely - peaceful - route around Oxford which is hard to achieve sometimes in the summer months. If you have even a passing interest in the Inspector Morse this is for you (IMO).

    Sandra the tour guide was very friendly and informative but she did speak quite quietly which was sometimes difficult with traffic noise around. The tour covered lots of lovely areas of Oxford and showed numerous iconic buildings and colleges etc. This is an outside looking in tour, you do not visit inside anywhere but I guess you can go back round afterwards and pop inside to take photos. It lasted about 1.5 hours and was easy walking on level ground but with cobbles, so wear suitable footwear. All in all an informative and interesting tour if you are a Morse/Endeavour/Lewis fan. There were about 15 people in our group.

    Our guide Elizabeth was one of the best I've encountered, having exceptional knowledge of the city, people, and history of both the locations and how they related to each of the tv episodes. She was engaging throughout, continuing to tell stories and provide interesting facts as we travelled between the various sites visited on the tour. Her personal friendship with the author and cast members was another bonus. Can't recommend highly enough.
