Hands down this was the smoothest any vacation, local or abroad, has gone for me. Monograms did not miss a thing, from the nice hotels to the friendly local hosts. We would have missed so much had we booked a trip by ourselves. The local guides were also top notch, with a clear high reputation among their colleagues and in the city with which they live. With that, we felt like royalty with drivers picking us up in a Mercedes each time. The whole trip was professional, information and enjoyable. Monograms has my business moving forward.

We had a great time all around--it was excellent to have all of the arrangement made ahead of time and take some of the hassles out of travel.
We got a great deal--that was in part driven by super low air fare--which included a long layover--long enough to be a pain and screw up the first day, short enough that we couldn't go to town (Dublin) and make the best of it. Of course we could have paid more and gotten a direct flight but part of the appeal of the offer was the amazingly low cost. Hindsight, we'd have done the deal and paid the extra$.

We are very well traveled and have taken many group and private tours so can speak with confidence when we express our sincere satisfaction with our Monograms tour. The guides/drivers/accommodations were gracious, professional, knowledgeable and informative. Everything went very smoothly and our experience was wonderful. Highly recommend the Miramar Windsor Hotel in Rio, Belmond Cataratas in Iguassu and Hangaroa Eco Lodge in Easter Island-they were outstanding and restaurant food was excellent.

Stride Review

Monograms, one of the Globus family of brands, offers classic vacation packages to many of the world’s most popular destinations. The company has many years of experience creating packaged tours and is based in Colorado, USA.

What Makes Monograms Stand Out?

London classic sights on Monograms tours

It can be difficult to find a company that successfully marries two seemingly disparate ways of travel: independant or self guided and classic group travel. But at Monograms this is exactly the task they have set for themselves, and their positive reviews and large variety of products would seem to say they do a solid job.

With Monograms there is no need to choose between self guided or group travel. You can personalize your experience as well - an important element for many of today’s travelers. Themes include Family travel, Food & Wine, Cruises, and Active.

Monograms prides themselves on the all-inclusive nature of travel planning, pre-organizing everything from your airport transfer to your activities and meals. They also provide a Local Hosts program, which is basically like an in-destination concierge.

Who Will Enjoy Traveling With Monograms?

Monograms is ideal for travelers who don’t love group travel but also highly dislike the stress of arriving in a destination and having to plan everything themselves. It’s for the traveler who wants the freedom of a private couple or family getaway and the comfort of a local guide who can assist with everything from restaurant recommendations to skipping the line at major attractions.

Monograms is Globus’ mid-tier brand in terms of pricing and thus travelers span across many different age groups. Many couples choose Monograms for a romantic trip to places like Italy and France, although they also offer specialized packages for families.

Monograms travel video

Most Monograms packages are a mix of group sightseeing tours and independent exploration. This can result in some very large touring groups when visiting popular tourist attractions like the Louvre in Paris, for example. However, most of their trips still afford some level of flexibility to explore a destination on your own terms.

Top Destinations

You can travel with Monograms to many different locations in Europe, Australia, Asia, South/Central America, and Africa. Perhaps their most well-known destination is Italy, and they also offer some unique trips to Australia, specifically to areas other similar tour companies don’t operate.

Monograms Travel Style

At Monograms, their travel style is about providing you with a no hassle private vacation, catered to your interests. Everything from honeymoon vacations to family vacations are available through Monograms.

When you use Monograms, you can elect to have the help of a travel agent, or book a pre-planned package.

Why Choose a Monograms Tour?

For a well rounded trip, designed for you, and with an attentive local host there to make your journey as seamless and stress free as possible, Monograms is the perfect company.

These tips are mostly private, so ideal for families, couples, and honeymooners - though during some days on the itinerary you will join up with a larger group for guided day tours

Monograms is all about providing personal touches, and arranging a trip for you that matches your travel style. Providing some personal input and likes / dislikes / must sees is going to take your Monograms tour from “ordinary” to extraordinary, so these trips are best suited to travelers who like to be involved with planning the itinerary.

FAQ

Are flights included?
With Monograms, think of your entire vacation as one-stop shopping. Rather than spending hours researching flights to coordinate with your vacation start and end dates, let us handle the work. And when we book your flights, if there are any changes to your vacation schedule, we make the air changes for you. As a completely independent company, we have no ties to any one airline. We negotiate the lowest possible airfares with the world's finest carriers on your behalf. Monograms offers two air options - Flex Air and Instant Purchase Air. Flex Air allows flexibility if you want to make changes to your vacation schedule. Instant Purchase Air may offer additional airline options but has more restrictions. Some vacations may only offer one air type option.
What is the Average Group Size?
Monograms tours are largely private and self guided. You will have a local host who acts as an in country concierge to help with everything from transportation to restaurant recommendations. During your trip, there may be some group activities planned, but the size of the group will vary.
What is the age range?
Monograms trips are open to all ages! Monograms Family packages are extremely popular, as well as packages for honeymoons.
What kind of luggage should I bring?
We recommend your luggage does not exceed the dimensions of 30"x21"x11 (62" linear dimensions) or weight exceeding 50 lbs. Your air carrier may have stricter weight/dimension limitations. Size and weight limitations for carry on and checked baggage vary from airline to airline and even according to destination.
