    Met with Peter out tour guide and was expecting the run of the mill tour,but we got so much more.We booked for an Inspector Morse tour but Peter has much knowledge about Oxford from its famous writers C S Lewis and Tolkien to Harty Potter to Inspector Morse. He told us albout the history of Oxford's buildings and its past. Peter took the time with us to take pictures and answer any questions we had, and set me links for films and documentaries to do with Oxford. Best tour guide in Oxford we had a great time and do recommend booking.

    We met Peter as planned, he introduced himself, and we cannot speak too highly of the wonderful afternoon we spent in his company, the tour of oxford was the highlight of our few days there to celebrate my wife's 65th birthday. We are both fans of Inspector Morse, Lewis, and Endeavour, especially my wife, and Peter took us to all the places where the filming took place, the churches, the pubs, colleges, Randolph Hotel, explaining everything about the different episodes and characters, we were amazed by his knowledge. Peter had brought folders with him and showed us photos relating to the shows. Peter also told us a lot about Oxford, and also about Harry Potter, J K Rowling, Tolkien, also Lewis Carroll. Peter also took us to the indoor market which we found really enjoyable with all its traditional shops and crafts. The day after our tour my wife and I actually revisited some of the places which we wouldn't have found without Peter showing us. we cannot speak too highly of Peter & tour
