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. A package that ensures you won’t find yourself forced into the unknown. Monograms factors in your travel dreams while conquering travel obstacles, trading worrying and wondering for wonderment. In places where you won’t even begin to know your way, you’ll never feel lost with Monograms. You have a choice in travel. You can choose to go it alone, or you can choose to feel like a local. That’s the Monograms difference – and why those who travel with Monograms never travel any other way again.
Our Monograms Package We Plan, You Play.
Globetrotting is fun. Research, logistics and getting lost – 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. Because we’re proponents of doing and viewing, not stewing.

No other travel company offers this accessible wealth of information. While others are walking in circles, your Local Host gets you straight to the famous squares.

Our Transportation Your ride's here.
On a Monogram’s 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. We want you to get a taste of the local scene and cuisine, not the local traffic.
