Katia Mavrelli

Founder & Managing Director


Katia Mavrelli is an experienced Greek tourism professional with a history of demonstrated success in her career in the cultural tourism industry.

Born and raised in Greece; an ancient land with a rich history and culture, she developed early on a passion for her Greek heritage. While still pursuing a Classical Studies Master’s degree from Aristotle University, focusing on ancient Greek Philosophy and Art, she began her career as a Licensed Guide certified by the Greek National Tourism Organization. She developed extensive experience in tourism working also as a Tour Program Director for well known International Tour Operators where she lead groups throughout Greece and other parts of the world.

While exploring world cultures, she enriched her Classical Studies with a second Master’s Degree in Management from Harvard University. Following her dream and now empowered with rich knowledge in both Cultural Tourism and Management, she created ‘Inspiration Ventures Greece,’ her official Travel Brand in Athens, which specializes in cultural programs and experiential activities throughout Greece.

Inspiration Ventures is a travel company on a mission.
We focus on delivering memorable tours while promoting responsible tourism.
When you travel with us, you entrust your trip to professionals who have visited every
