    Wonderful tour — my grandson (20) and I throughly enjoyed this tour as we are huge fans of Freddy Mercury and Queen
    A Kind of Magic

    It was a magical moment standing next to Freddie and in Queen the studio experience it felt like all four members were in the room at the mixing desk. A kind of magic.
    Amazing Freddie Mercury Tour in Montreux
    Shane_W, Jun 2022
    Such an amazing tour, our guide was tremendous and a great host. So nice to hear some amazing secret stories and be able to place them in Montreux. Montreux is such a beautiful place, I can understand why Freddy and Queen came here to record their beautiful songs. If you are visiting then I would recommend this tour. Thanks for a lovely memory- Shane and Lucy - UK

    Wir haben viele Infos über Freddie erfahren. Leider streikte der Audioguide hin und wieder. Empfehlen wir gerne weiter!8
    Response from Host, Aug 2021
    Hallo Brigitte, Ja, leider gab es am Tag Ihres Besuchs einige kleine Probleme mit den Audioguides. Das tut mir sehr leid. Seitdem ist alles korrigiert worden. Ich danke Ihnen nochmals für Ihren Besuch und hoffe, Sie bald wiederzusehen. Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Lucien Muller
