Had a fab afternoon with Tom on our Morse walking tour. We were lucky with the weather so we took a leisurely pace. Tom was really knowledgeable about Oxford history and architecture as well as Morse/Lewis/Endeavour/Dexter trivia. Need to rewatch some episodes now! Really good. Totally recommend it.

My wife and I took the Morse locations tour in Oxford City in late June. I have read all of the Morse books and so had our guide but he had also seen all episodes of Morse, Lewis and Endeavor. His knowledge of all aspects of the Morse phenomenon was encyclopedic and combined with an engaging manner this graduate of University College Oxford was the best tour guide I can recall. The tour is educational as well as enjoyable and therefore well worth takig.

A great Morse walking tour with Tom on a chilly day but the 3 hours flew by. It was good to view familiar settings from TV but the added bonus was seeing so many colleges and learning of their history. Tom was a terrific guide, combining attention to detail with lots of humour. Thanks so much.
