Monograms is expanding its diverse vacation portfolio with eight new vacations in 2020, in destinations like China, Peru, the Galápagos, Argentina, Chile, Guatemala and even Antarctica.
“Monograms is perfect for the independent traveller who wants all of the details taken care of ahead of time - as well as during their vacation,” says Stéphanie Bishop of the Globus family of brands, Monograms parent company. “Not only do you save countless hours of research, but you receive private guided sightseeing in each city as well as VIP access to must-see landmarks.”
The Monograms local host in each destination is, she adds, an invaluable resource for sightseeing, dining and shopping suggestions – and is also there to make sure the trip runs smoothly.
What to expect
In addition to the on-site services of a local host, Monograms offers a choice of hotels in centrally-located neighborhoods and transportation between cities and countries, but that’s not all. As part of every Monograms itinerary, travellers also enjoy included sightseeing and a choice of optional excursions.
Excursions include everything from city sightseeing to off-the-beaten-path adventures such as taking a chairlift to the peak of Cerro Campanario for panoramic views of the Andes Mountains; entering Peru’s legendary Machu Picchu at sunrise; hiking through Tierra del Fuego National Park in Antarctica and or something as fun and novel as partaking in a noodle-making demonstration in Xi’an.
“We take away any anxiety or concern about travel and replace it with the freedom to enjoy your vacation, knowing you are in the best of expert hands,” says Bishop. “Plus with our expanded choice of itineraries – notably to Peru – there’s an exotic tour waiting for almost every traveller out there.”
