In addition to the Freddie Tour, teachers can, for example, screen the blockbuster "Bohemian Rhapsody" in the classroom. The movie tells the story of the legendary band Queen and its iconic lead singer, Freddie Mercury. It provides a cultural and musical perspective that complements our guided tours, allowing students to better understand the impact of the band on the history of music. The educational project is therefore organised around extra activities in your schools.

For students learning English, it is possible to conduct the tour entirely in English. The English version of the interactive audio guides was recorded by Peter Freestone, Freddie Mercury's personal assistant for 12 years. It offers an immersive experience to practice the language and gives a unique and authentic insight into the life of Freddie Mercury and the history of Queen, while discovering exciting places.

Your guide is a native of Montreux can adapt to all school levels, from primary to secondary school, including high school. He will capture the attention of the students with fascinating anecdotes and clear explanations. Every child will be able to discover this musical universe with pleasure and learn from it.

Whether it's a school outing, a school run or a cultural trip, offer your pupils an unforgettable experience that will enrich their school experience and stimulate their interest in learning. Booking is possible during the school holidays as well as during the year. The Freddie Tours can be made at the time of your choice, for a half-day of discovery that fits in with your educational plans.
