Monograms Tour Reviews (5)
“Great short stay in Vienna and Prague”
Great way to get a couple of days touring in a couple of the major European cities. No fuss travel, met by guides as required and ensured transfers all worked well. Local tours OK in Vienna & Prague. Hotels in good location to do own touring. Hotel in Vienna undergoing renovations so drilling started at 7am and didn't stop until 3pm. Only a problem if wanted afternoon nap.

“Monograms travel to Rome & Venice”
I took the Rome/Venice Monograms tour this September. They take care of all the transfers to and from hotels etc. There is a short guided tour of the city and the rest of the time you are on your own (which suited me as I had been to Rome & Venice before) otherwise you choose an additional optional tour. Happy with the hotel choice, and everything ran well. The local tour guides were knowledgeable and entertaining.

Hotel accommodation was 5 star, spacious room & handy to everything. The guide was amazing & a very interesting man who gave so much information & he was a great lover of Berlin. Handy to all restaurants. Hotel staff very friendly.

A great place to stay at Jury's Inn with trams & station right outside the front door. We were rather jet lagged so we really didn't make the most of it. Chose to buy a city tour & also a trip to Cesky Krumlov. City tour was fantastic & guide was very informative. Cesky Krumlov tour was disappointing the guide was not satisfactory at all.

“Springtime in London and Paris”
Our Monograms independent travel tour was a great way to start our holiday. The accommodation was excellent in both cities for location and service. Having a monograms representative in the hotel everyday if we needed help or advice was a bonus for first time travellers. They also were able to secure theatre tickets to see Matilda the Musical at the Cambridge Theatre in London and the spectacular Moulin Rouge in Paris both great highlights of our stay. The half day included tours in each city were a good way to see the main sights in a short time and we will go back for more sometime in the future.

The Monograms Experience
Why you should choose to travel with Monograms on your next adventure
Monograms Independent Travel
Monograms is 100% independent travel and lets you get to know a destination like a local. Packages cater to both the first time traveller and experienced traveller. If you've travelled internationally before, Monograms packages make your holiday easier so you don't have to fuss around with planning.
Included are hotels, the services of a Local Host, a city orientation with VIP entry to popular attractions as well as transportation (when you choose one of our city-combinations).
And, if you're a first-timer, you can rely on guidance from the Monograms Local Hosts to get familiar with a city, and whom you can contact for information or advice at any point on your trip.
Your Monograms Local Host
On Monograms vacations, we provide you with the services of a Local Host, giving you peace of mind that someone is there for you during your holiday. Local Hosts provide area expertise and insider information, and are available to help answer questions, arrange excursions and city sightseeing, give directions, and suggest activities that interest you most for a truly personal experience.
On arrival at your destination, your Monograms Local Host will provide you with a Destination Guide full of useful information to help you make the most of your vacation time.
Monograms knows that accommodation is key to a great holiday. That's why we offer you a choice of hotels pre-selected for their comfort, style, service and convenience.
Whether you prefer hotels that are close to shopping or sightseeing, surrounded by natural beauty, part of the city's artistic heritage, or that offer contemporary styling, our holidays can put you at the heart of your destination —an assurance that first-time visitors to an area find invaluable.
A hot buffet breakfast is included at each hotel for your convenience. Lunches and dinners are not included on your Monograms holiday, as we know you want to choose when and where to eat at your location. Your Local Host will be happy to give you suggestions for dining as well as information about local specialties.
When you touch down at your destination, Monograms will get you to your hotel; and at the end of your holiday, we'll make sure you get back to the airport for your flight home (additional costs apply). Plus if you're on a multi-city holiday with us, we'll arrange your transfers between cities.

Frequently asked questions for clients considering travelling with Monograms
Before I book
Will someone be available to assist me at the destination? Is sightseeing included on a Monograms holiday?
On Monograms independent holidays, we provide you with the services of a Local Host, giving you peace of mind that someone is there for you during your holiday. Local Hosts provide area expertise and insider information, and are available to help answer questions, arrange excursions and city sightseeing, give directions, and direct you to the activities that interest you most for a truly personal, one-of-a-kind vacation.
Are meals included on a Monograms holiday?
Sightseeing is provided in each city. Sightseeing varies by region and will be provided by a Monograms representative or by a local operator. Please see the itinerary pages for full sightseeing details for each Monograms holiday.
How does transportation between cities work on a Monograms holiday?
Breakfast is provided. In general, lunches and dinners are not included, so the choice is yours.
What size are triple rooms?
Transportation between cities is either included in the package price or available for purchase and can be by plane, train, motorcoach, ferry, or rental car. Transfers during your vacation to train stations are included. On vacations where flights are required to get from one city to another, passengers who did not purchase intra-vacation flights from Monograms will be required to provide flight information for transfers.
Do Monograms cater for familys & young travellers?
Triple rooms are the same size as a twin-bedded room (a room with two separate beds of any size). They will have beds to accommodate three people; however, we cannot guarantee that there will be three separate beds. If there are only two beds, a rollaway may be requested but cannot be guaranteed.
Travellers under 18 years old on the scheduled departure date must be accompanied by an adult and share the adult’s accommodation for the duration of the holiday. Children of all ages are eligible to travel. Land arrangements for infants under two years of age are free of charge, providing parents pay hotels directly for special arrangements (eg. Food, cot, etc.). Children aged 12-17 receive a 10% discount off the land tour price (not including internal air travel). Children aged 11 and under receive a 25% discount on the land tour price when sharing accommodation with one adult.

What size can my suitcase be? When can I purchase additional activities & excursions?
We recommend your luggage does not exceed the dimensions of 76x53x28cm or weight exceeding 22kg. Air carrier restrictions may vary from the limitations listed above. Size and weight limitations for carry-on and checked baggage vary from airline to airline and even according to destination, and are becoming more restrictive.
When will I receive my Trip Planner & Accessories?
A complete listing of addtional activites & excursions you may want to consider will be available in your travel documents. You may choose to purchase these Activities & Excursions in advance; some may be available to purchase from your Local Host while on holiday.
