Visiting Oxford on foot is the best way to see it and this tour is great for Morse, Lewis and Endeavour fans. Follow in Morse's footsteps with your expert and enthusiastic Guide who will remind you of episodes past and explain all the story lines. See some of Morse's favourite pubs and many of the buildings used as locations for these popular TV detective series!

The City of Oxford has not changed much since last century and with so many ancient and impressive sights to see, this is an excellent all round tour to take.
