What a beautiful place and we were shown round by the most excellent tour guide, so informative / knowledgeable not only about Inspector Morse etc but also about Oxford.. shame it didn't go on for longer...

Thank you! We are delighted you enjoyed your tour - I think we could all talk for about Morse / Lewis and Endeavour for longer than the two hours scheduled - there is so much to talk about. We really appreciate you taking the time to leave this review. With very best wishes Heidi

We met Leigh at 11.20 a.m. and off we went on a whirlwind tour of places intertwined in the three Morse|Lewis shows. Leigh was informative and fun and the crowd were a mixed bunch of addicts. I found it fascinating that there were Finnish people who were very caught up in the series. The tour was about two hours long and brought in many of the colleges, markets etc. Leigh told us of chases which happened in particular episodes, she showed us where the Morse Bar was in the Randolph hotel if we wanted to explore it after the tour. Enjoyed it thoroughly

Elizabeth our guide had a lively, knowledgeable, intelligent, endearing personality who was extremely well acquainted with both Oxford and the Inspector Morse series. She shared many insights into the filming sessions that she had personally witnessed. She moved the group along at a good pace, about 18 of us in all . In addition to the Morse locations she pointed to pubs andcolleges, places of interest as we walked together . She found interesting locations to gather us when she was elaborating on details. We were fortunate to have a warm sunny Aug day,so the whole experience was an A plus. Thank you so much Elizabeth. You are an outstanding guide who obviously loves Oxford and loves sharing with visitors.

Wonderful tour, hi-light of our trip! Elizabeth did an incredible job guiding us through sites I still can't believe we've seen in person. We're big Morse/Lewis/Endeavour fans and we learned a lot on this tour. I was struck by how poignant and touching many of the stops were. Seeing Oxford in a way we couldn't do on our own and having the guidance of a highly knowledgable expert fan was an experience I'll never forget. Thank you!

Really enjoyable tour. Heidi was friendly and engaging with fantastic knowledge of not just Morse but also about the city itself. Without doing this tour we would never have seen so many parts of Oxford. Would definitely recommend.
