OUR EDUCATIONAL TOURS
The magic that makes these tours such a great fit for students is how popular culture (movies, TV shows as well as music and video games) is used as a starting point to engage students with familiar references as a means to delve deeper into Paris culture. Students will explore the historic significance from universal stories that have been immortalised in films such as Marie Antoinette, The Three Musketeers, The Phantom of the Opéra and The Hunchback of Notre Dame. The also dive into the vital role Paris played in creating cinema from showing the first ever film to the foundation of special effects.
Movie tours are offered in a host of languages so if you are visiting Paris and would like a tour in your native language. Some French schools choose our English-speaking tour as a great way to practice their English and French students will take a French tour. Set in Paris is happy to work with educators to tailor our student group tours to students’ age and studies. Take-away study guides tailored to students’ areas of interest and study are provided.
