Short Description

Lion King fans…what does Hakuna Matata mean? Yep, it’s Swahili for “no worries,” and with Monograms, you’ll be singing Hakuna Matata full force. Why? Because Monograms handles all the details of your Africa vacation for you, so you will have “no worries.” On this 9-day private safari (how cool is that?), we’ve arranged your choice of accommodations, almost all of your meals, game drives, and ground transportation between destinations. We’ve also arranged for you to have a professional Driver/Guide throughout your vacation, a local who is knowledgeable about the wildlife, and will help spot game. Plus, the custom 4-wheel-drive safari vehicles we use feature a pop-up roof for easy game viewing and photography.

To all the guides that made our journey excellent, Graciella, Cecilia, Sarah, Yoland, Onya, Ila, and the several others not listed, Thanks So Very Much!

Monograms organized a great trip, and all ran very smoothly and without incident! Thanks for organizing the Intro to Venice, Florence, and Rome tours, what a great way to get the historical and hot spots highlighted and explained. This allowed for us to make the unaccompanied portions more vacation like and more of an explorations. Also for the shoppers in us, it gave us time to invest our dollars!

Thanks So Very Much Monograms!

The most prepared and organized trip ever planned out. All hotels , tours, and transfers were all completed as promised. Very courteous and helpful company. Would highly recommend.

The experience of touring Costa Rica was rich with nature, culture, and relaxation. I was assured as I witnessed all my plans exceeded my expectations.

I booked a trip to Australia and New Zealand for my husband and me for October 1, 2022. A month before the trip, Monograms cancelled the trip. Now they won’t refund my money so I can book the trip with another agency. There’s not even a way to call people in finance to see what the problem is. I can’t pay $16,000 for a trip and turn right around and pay $16,000 more. Why should it take six weeks to send me a refund? It sure didn’t take six weeks to process when I had to pay the money. I’ll never book anything with these folks again. They’re impossible to get on the phone. There’s lots better companies in which to book. Don’t use these folks.

My wife and I went to Italy for our honeymoon. We started out in Rome for four nights then we stopped in Florence for two nights and we ended our time in Italy with four nights in Venice. The Monograms local host meeting us in each city when we arrived was awesome especially Oana in Rome. Having travel, hotels and tours planned made our trip virtually stress free. We got to do and see everything that we has always wanted to and spending ten nights was just the right amount of time. We are already planning to go back and explore more of Italy! The people and culture are warm and welcoming and the food is amazing! When we travel there again we will definitely use Monograms. Overall our honeymoon was perfect!
