What is your most memorable moment as a tour guide?

After a tour of La Cathédrale which “explains” in part the life of Christ and his resurrection as part of the interpretation of the stained glass representation of the Way of the Cross, a gentlemen thanked me profusely for the tour and said in part: “My wife and I are Hindu, we now understand Christianity” My goal is never to preach, convert, or favour. It is simply to explain and interpret.
