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.

A brilliant tour which was informative fun and a great walk.Heidi, our guide knew her stuff and entertained us with anecdotes, history, links between the three Morse variants and personal stories of the actors and Colin Dexter himself.

The tour was excellent. Our guide Leigh was very knowledgeable and brought everything to life. Her knowledge of all things Morse was very detailed. We picked the wettest August afternoon imaginable to go on this but this did not deter Leigh at all. The meeting point was easy to find and the tour started promptly. We were enthralled from start to finish. Our guide was always checking we were not blocking footpaths or being in the way. A credit to the team giving us the best tour despite the truly appalling weather

We absolutely loved this tour with Elizabeth! She was able to provide a great deal of information about Oxford, the Colleges and University as well as the fabulous Morse, Lewis and Endeavour connections to locations around this great City. She also shared anecdotes with us of the people she has met in connection with these brilliant tv programmes. I would highly recommend this enjoyable tour. Thank you Elizabeth!!
