About Monograms

With Monograms, you get: A choice of hand-selected hotels in centrally located neighborhoods. 
 Transportation between cities and countries, including traveling in reserved premium seating via high-speed train. 
 A half-day of guided sightseeing in each city. VIP access to must-see landmarks (this means, you skip the lines and save valuable time). Countless customizable choices – from optional excursions to accommodation upgrades. The onsite services of a local expert – a Monograms Local Host. 
 Monograms YourWay Local Hosts make all the difference for Monograms travelers! From organizing excursions to answering questions about the local culture and customs, a Monograms Local Host can turn every question into an answer and every problem into a solution. 
 Your Local Host is there to serve as a guide to help you personalize your vacation and Monograms invites you to use your local expert as much – or as little – as you would like, day or night. Monograms YourWay Monograms vacations were created so you can tailor your vacation to your specific likes, interests and travel style. YourWay takes the Monograms concept one step further by allowing you to choose the number of nights you wish to stay in select European cities. For the first-time visitor to London, Paris, Rome, Florence, Venice, Madrid, Barcelona, Lisbon, and Amsterdam, Monograms has found that 3 nights is the magic number for the optimal city experience. But maybe you’ve already spent time in Paris or want to explore more of Rome. With Monograms YourWay, you can customize your stay from two to five nights in these popular cities. Two nights to explore. A two-night YourWay package is perfect if you have limited time or if you have previously visited a destination. Monograms vacations always kick off with a half-day of guided sightseeing in each city with VIP access to famous attractions. Once you’ve enjoyed this city orientation (and skipping the lines at the top sights!) you can use your remaining time to explore independently, checking your top “must-sees” or “must-dos” off your list. Not sure how to prioritize? Your Local Host® will have plenty of suggestions and optional excursions! Three, four or five nights to discover more. A three-or-more-night YourWay package allows additional time for deeper discoveries and cultural immersion. After the included half-day of guided sightseeing with VIP access, these longer packages allow you to tap your Local Host for more suggestions and favorites, and take advantage of additional Activities & Excursions (you can find a listing in the package details for each vacation). With more time to explore – armed with the knowledge and guidance of a Local Host – you will be transformed from “looker” to “local” in a matter of days.

A SAFE & WARM WELCOME:
We will enact new tour check-in procedures and pre-trip health screenings to offer guests a safe start to their journey, including adherence to social distancing requirements.

BLENDING CULTURAL PROXIMITY WITH SOCIAL DISTANCE:
We will ensure safe distances for our guests throughout the journey, on coach and during excursions. This includes providing masks for our guests use at any time where social proximity could be an issue as well as the possibility of reducing group sizes, if required. And wireless listening technology—including our Go Beyond Devices in Europe—enables safe distances between our guests and other travelers on excursions.



HEALTH AND SAFETY WITH MONOGRAMS
Today’s world has changed, but what remains certain is our commitment to guest safety, comfort and peace-of-mind while traveling with us. To that end, we have established a worldwide Assurance program, with enhanced on-trip protocols and procedures, to ensure the health – and happiness – of our guests throughout their travels with us.

It all starts with our Global Health & Safety Team, dedicated to ensuring that cleanliness of all operations exceeds today’s travel standards—from start to finish. The following areas address our commitment to providing a safe and clean environment for our guests.

A SAFE & WARM WELCOME

BLENDING CULTURAL PROXIMITY WITH SOCIAL DISTANCE

And wireless listening technology enables safe distances between our guests and other travelers on excursions.

FOCUS ON GUEST AND TEAM MEMBER HEALTH
To ensure a healthy environment for our team and our guests, we will conduct regular temperature checks for both guests and our team, and when necessary, masks will be worn by our team when with guests.

TOUCHING HEARTS, NOT HANDS
Traveling with Monograms removes many of the “touch points” of travel, including luggage handling, check in/out, expedited entry into attractions and more. We are further reducing risk with hands-free service, meaning all self-services replaced by staff, including buffet meals replaced with table service. We will also ensure hand sanitizing is available throughout each trip, and in hotels.

COMMITMENT TO CLEAN
As a part of our commitment to clean, we are requiring enhanced cleaning procedures with our hotel partners, on vehicles and throughout every trip, including additional daily disinfecting procedures that go above-and-beyond our already strict health and safety procedures.

PARTNERS IN DISCOVERY AND IN HEALTH
Monograms has strict health and safety protocols, which have been in place for years, focused on ensuring all aspects of our operation--from vehicles and equipment used on trip to excursions and hotel procedures. This process will continue with new, elevated health and safety checks, to maintain our promise that each touch-point of our vacations are considered in our commitment to guest and team member well-being.

Sustainability

 
 From our inception, The Globus family of brands has cast a light on the world’s most fascinating places and people – inviting wayfarers and wanderers like you to bask in their glory, intrigue and wonder. Along the way, we’ve helped travelers uncover ancient traditions while meeting the locals dedicated to preserving them; to meander historic hallways while giving back to the societies that safeguard them; and to put down the guidebooks and pick up a greater understanding of the world and its people.

Immersed in enlightening experiences, we naturally gain a deeper appreciation – one that leads to greater compassion, consideration and curiosity as we ask ourselves, what else can we do to protect our planet, preserve our sacred places and help humankind?
