Next, stop at the SAMURAI MUSEUM to learn about their history and see authentic period-specific swords, armor, and helmets (kabuto). You will even have the chance to have your picture taken wearing a helmet and armor! Lastly, visit bustling NAKAMISE SHOPPING ARCADE and ASAKUSA KANNON TEMPLE, the oldest of their kind in Tokyo.

Day 5

Seoul. Your PRIVATE GUIDED SIGHTSEEING starts at GYEONGBOKGUNG PALACE, built in 1395 during the Joseon Dynasty that ruled the country for five centuries. Gyeongbokgung was the primary residence of the royal family and considered the most magnificent of the “Five Grand Palaces” built in Seoul. The palace complex was razed by the Japanese invasion of 1592. It sat abandoned for nearly 300 years until the mid-19th century when the complex was rebuilt and expanded with some 500 buildings. You will also stop at the NATIONAL FOLK MUSEUM to learn more about Korean culture. Before leaving the complex, watch a re-enactment of the Changing of the Guard Ceremony, and discover how the royal guards of the Joseon Dynasty were in charge of protecting the gates of the capital city and the royal palace. Next, take a WALKING TOUR through BUKCHON HANOK VILLAGE. Here, you can see hundreds of hanoks (traditional Korean houses) dating back to the Joseon Dynasty. Walk along the quiet alleys lined with restaurants and tea houses. Travel to nearby Insadong for lunch in a local restaurant featuring Korean cuisine. A highlight is bibimbap, a signature dish of warm rice topped with sautéed vegetables, sliced meat, chili paste, and a fried egg. Afterward, stroll along Insadong Street, a center for traditional arts and crafts. The remainder of the afternoon is at your leisure. (B,L)

Day 9

Beijing. Begin your PRIVATE GUIDED SIGHTSEEING at TIAN’ANMEN SQUARE, the largest public square in the world. Next, stop at the FORBIDDEN CITY, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the world’s largest palace complex. Once the home of China’s great emperors, today it showcases ancient Chinese architecture, landscaped gardens, and displays of rare art and artifacts. The afternoon is at your leisure. (B)

I love Monograms. You have the security of a host in each city but you have plenty of time to explore on your own. You have a city tour that gives you an overview and then you can go to the places you want to revisit.

We took a Monograms tour of Lima, Peru, and Machu Picchu. The trip was well organized, the tour guides were excellent, and the hotel accomodations were very good. Our trip had 2 days in Agua Calientes , and I would recommend 1 day as being adequate

Monograms allowed me to have my dream London trip. The hotel they picked for us - Park Plaza Westminster Bridge- was an amazing location, easily accessible to tourist spots, so clean, with friendly staff at the hotel. The local hosts as they call them are extremely knowledge and were always willing to help, explain how to get somewhere, and make an accommodations needed. The excursion options are fantastic and I loved being able to choose which sites I wanted to visit - including a Thames river night cruise, a bus tour of London, a visit to the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, Hampton Court, the London Eye, and a trip to Highclere Castle (Downton Abbey). They have even more, those were just the ones we chose. Some used tour guides and buses to get you there, others just provided the tickets early and the local hosts helped us figure out how to get there on our own. This has the convenience of tour groups, but the independence to do what I want and adjust it to my schedule. I cannot rave enough about how much I enjoyed Monograms! I would definitely use them for future trips.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Monograms trip. This was our first "guided" tour and we were somewhat reluctant as we've always chosen to travel independently. That said the Monograms trip provides just enough support and logistics that is helpful but not too much that it feels like a "tour". Everything was well organized and the local hosts were excellent.
