Storytelling capabilities are vital aspect of a tour guide. In this paper, we present a mobile tour guide that emulates a real guide's behaviour by presenting stories based on the user's interests, its own interests, its belief and its current memory activation. This research moves away from the concept of a guide that recites facts about places or events towards a guide that utilises improvisational storytelling techniques. Contrasting views and personality are achieved with an inclusion of emotional memories containing the guide's ideology and its past experiences. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2007.
