Go beyond the dreaming spires of Oxford and explore the university city from a different perspective. Follow in the footsteps of the TV series "Inspector Morse" and its spin-off shows "Lewis" and "Endeavour." 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.

    Our guide, Elizabeth, was engaging, extremely knowledgeable about Oxford, its history and its connection to Morse, Lewis and Endeavour. She also had personal anecdotes about the writer, Colin Dexter, and several actors with whom she had an acquaintance. The tour was well paced and one of the best walking tours we have ever been on. I highly recommend for fans of all things Morse and those with a corresponding interest in the history of Oxford and its Colleges. I cannot recommend this enough.

    It is a short tour and the time passes quickly. It is very interesting to see places in Oxford you would not necessarily know to find yourself and nice to be able to go inside one of the colleges. The guide was Ms Leigh Guyatt, who was very nice and kept everybody interested and altogether, despite the rain!! :(

    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).
