Kristupas Sepkus is a private tour guide in Lithuania
I am a historian, born and raised in Vilnius, working as a full-time tour guide since 2013. In my opinion, the most important thing while leading a tour is to avoid having people die from pure boredom due to mounds of cliche official information that can be found in every guidebook and inside the Cracks of Doom ( by that I mean Google).
I found that people are more interested in learning who and why threw a nice fellow from a church roof than the standard recital of how good-natured and good-looking and smart the citizens of my city are.
The city awarded me the title of "The most hospitable tour guide of 2015". It is a very practical thing to have a document signed by the mayor that says I am a nice person: it surely helps when arguing with neighbors, so I have been using and abusing it without a trace of shame.
Some of those who have enjoyed my tour include members of the Aerosmith band, Game of Thrones actors, National Geographic reporters, presidents of foreign countries, major companies CEO's, and members of the worldwide press. Young or elderly (better be elderly because we all know that grass used to be greener), I treat everyone with the same respect and attention.
By the way, if you have a family member or if you are traveling with a friend who has a disability, please do not be shy to contact me, I will be more than very happy to arrange the city tour at a symbolic price for them.
