You want to see the world, but you don't know where to begin? Well, we're Monograms and we began a long time ago — putting all of the planning, arranging and coordinating into an all-in-one package. In fact, the work is done. It's time to start crossing sights off your list. It's time to turn "someday" into "today." It's time to just go. And enjoy once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
Our Monograms Package We Plan, You Play.
Globetrotting is fun. Research – not so much. With Monograms, we take on the endless hours of organizing and scheduling so you can see the sights, experience new cultures, and dance to new rhythms. From arranging the right hotels and efficient transportation to providing your own Local Hosts® and included sightseeing, we've thought of – and included – everything you need in an all-in-one package. But it doesn't stop there. We're also on the scene at your destination helping you make the most of your time. So you can officially stop planning. And start going.

Your Guide to Traveling Happy What Makes a "Happy Vacation"?
Searching for, finding and increasing happiness is the topic du jour. In fact, our pursuit of happiness has spawned a "happiness industry" featuring mood-enhancers, diets, books and seminars – all focused on increasing our happiness. Now, on the heels of unveiling the results of its Road to Happiness Study, Monograms has put a spotlight on happiness and travel. As part of this initiative we've created a FREE, Happy Travel Guide, meant to help travelers boost happiness before, during and after their vacation.

Our Transportation Your ride's here.
On a Monograms vacation, we believe the adventure is in the sightseeing, not the drama of getting from Point A to Point B. Whether it’s flight arrangements, transfers from the airport to your hotel, sightseeing, or traveling between cities, we take care of your transportation needs and can include it in your package price. No hailing cabs in a foreign language. No holding up the line confused at a subway station. We pick you up. And drop you right where you want to be.
Shuttles, Buses, Vans and Cars
These modes of transportation are used for transfers, excursions and driving vacations..
One of the most common ways to travel between international cities.
We can coordinate all of your flights, including all intra-vacation flights between cities.
Some packages include cruises or you’ll travel on a ferry. Plus, we offer many excursions where you’re on a boat.
