    This tour is amazing whether you are or a Morse fan or not. The guide was amazingly informative with enthusiasm coming out her ears!!!! Heidi would win Mastermind on Morse!!!!! You do also learn all there is to know about Oxford too and if you don’t just ask, nothing is too much trouble. I think normally you would see more of the colleges but they were closed to us on our tour day.... didn’t spoil anything though. Wont be around for a while now we’re binge watching Morse, Lewis and Endevour!!!!!!

    Walk in the footsteps of Morse, Lewis and Hathaway

    I can highly recommend this walk. The World of Morse, Lewis and Endeavour TV shows were brought to life. You stand where the stars stood in the beautiful Oxford filming locations. Our guide was very knowledgeable and very passionate about all the shows and Oxford colleges. She shared many secrets from her chats with the stars and writer Colin Dexter. The 2 hours flies by you will be sad when it is over but you are left with an experience you want all your friends to share. I’d like to do the walk again and can’t wait to go back.

    It was on the warmest day of the year in July. The guide was very very good. We had all the information we wanted and so much more.of interest. She stood us in the shade as much as possible. This was important so we could concentrate fully. I cannot believe how much of the subject was covered. All in an informative and light way combined somehow. We visited so many places after meeting at The Cross. The tour ended after 2hrs + at The Bodlian.
