Tom was very knowledgeable & had a huge amount of info to share with us. It was a fascinating tour & he was great at answering all our questions. He also picked up on things we were interested in & added facts related to those, even though they weren’t directly related to our themed tour. Would totally recommend this Morse Tour. We are now going to watch them all from the beginning & get very excited when we recognise places Tom showed us.

We found Tom's tour very interesting and really enjoyed it. It was good to learn about Oxford's history as well lots of information and places related to Morse, Endeavour and Lewis. We will enjoy watching some old episodes to try to spot the places we visited.

A very good tour even if the weather was bad. Tom was very informative about the episodes of Morse who in was in them and where they came in line with the colleges. As I have said it would have been more enjoyable if the weather had been better but not a thing Tom could do about that, but he did fine us a pub that had a very good mull wine.
