    Highly recommend. Melanie led our Inspector Morse, Inspector Lewis and Endeavour tour through Oxford. This tour is pure magic for anyone who is a fan of any or all of the three British detective series. Melanie provided otherwise unobtainable context, locale, peers behind the scenes, and interesting connections between and among the series. Her expert guidance and use of still photos from the shows on her mobile brought back wonderful memories of Morse, Lewis, Hathaway, and Endeavour. An absolute must for anyone who visits the United Kingdom and who loves these shows.
