Refund in full!
We have used Monograms several times in the past traveling to India, Equador, Amazon twice, Galapagos islands. All of these trips were amazing however recently I had to give a 5 star rating for giving us a full refund for a trip we booked to Africa due to Covid pandemic.We will definitely use them again when we can safely travel.

Amazing experience
Wow! What an incredible and perfect honeymoon. We had the best experience, everything was well laid out, easy to get from place to place and so many amazing opportunities while on this trip! We couldn't have asked for a better honeymoon and trip. We loved every moment of it and all that monograms had to offer. We would absolutely book again.

8-day Tanzania Private Safari with Monograms
It has been just over a month that we (a group of 8 friends) embarked on an 8-day Tanzania Private Safari with Monograms, which is part of the Globus family of brands. After a long two flights, we ended up in Arusha at the Mount Meru Hotel and spent the night. The next morning, we were greeted by our fantastic two guides, Jams and Amos, that would take us on our “bucket list” adventure, and they did not disappoint us at all. We spent two days at Tarangire National Park, two days at Ngorongoro Crater and two days at the Migration camp in the Serengeti. All of the accommodations were top notch and all of the staff at each location were genuinely happy to give us the best experience. The game drives at each location gave us an opportunity to see different animals in their native, and protected habitat.
I would highly recommend Monograms and Globus. Monica, our travel consultant, was very helpful and informative as we made our plans. After the trip, they followed up to see if we enjoyed our trip and answer any other questions.

Great Job Everyone!
The 8 of us started planning our African safari over a year ago and we methodically analyzed roughly 15 different tour companies and what they had to offer. The 9 day Tanzania safari with Monograms was the winner. Two days at Tarangire National Park, two days at Ngorongoro Crater and two days at the Migration camp in the Serengeti was a perfect itinerary. All three places were spectacular in their own regard but the tented Migration camp on the Serengeti was absolutely unparalleled and unforgettable. Obviously there are many back-and-forth emails with your tour company and Monograms made sure everything was in line every step of the way. Monica our groups agent is super friendly, easy to work with and always responds quickly.
For our next and any future tours we book we’re going to give Monograms the first look, they certainly deserve that.
Thank you all of you, great job!

Editorial review of Monograms

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?

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.

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.
