A few words about Clio Muse Tours

The idea of Clio Muse came to life when our three co-founders first met in 2012. Despite
coming from different academic backgrounds, they all had a special place in their hearts
for Culture. They founded the company in 2014. Since then, their hard work,
complementary personalities, tastes, and skills transformed the small start-up into a
successful and growing business that employs 36 people. Each team member has been
selected for their unique personality, creativity, and positive attitude. And apart from
each position’s requirements, we seek these traits in a colleague.
