Clio Muse is named after the ancient Greek Muse of history, Clio. Inspired by her flair for storytelling and culture, we create and share immersive audio tours, available on your smartphone. Our tours are theme based and multi-faceted, drawing inspiration from ancient and contemporary aspects of local culture while themes can range from archaeology and art to oral history, gastronomy, architecture, and mythology.
Our content is original and intriguing, created by professional archaeologists, historians or accredited tour guides. We believe in the importance of connecting with our audience, so all stories are written in an imaginative style following our signature approach.
Our current portfolio includes tours all across Greece and in selected European destinations, such as Italy and Netherlands. All are available 24/7 and include offline content and interactive maps. We have also released special combo packages combining our tours with skip-the-line tickets in selected archaeological sites.
Clio Muse enables museums and cultural institutions to create and share immersive theme based audio tours. What sets us apart is the way we help our audiences to connect with culture through the art of storytelling. Our concept is designed to open an engaging dialogue between the viewer and the exhibits and enable the public to relate to them in a multitude of ways. It all boils down to our profoundest desire:
“Generate universal cultural awareness and guide people in every part of the world, utilising pioneering technology.”
Until today we have hosted about 135 tours, out of which many are sold to travellers through major platforms, including GetYourGuide, TripAdvisor and Booking.com among others. Our top rankings in Crete and Athens on GetYourGuide and the numerous awards we have received by leading cultural heritage institutions, such as Europeana – 1st prize for innovative methods in the creation of digital heritage content (2014) – are a constant reminder that hard work pays off. Winning Booking.com’s 2nd prize among the fastest growing startup companies promoting sustainable tourism in Europe at the Booking Cares Lab is yet another important recognition of our efforts.
What is more, our tours are displayed at the Athens International Airport and we are proud to be the only platform for audio tours trusted by the European Federation of Tourist Guide Associations: FEG.
