Learn More About Monograms Tours

Monograms, which is a featured brand of the Globus network brand portfolio, is part of a venture that began in 1928. At that time, the founder operated a row boat to transport commercial products. Today, Monograms represents a travel company that covers travel to a variety of travel destinations in Europe, Central and South America, Asia, Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and North America. The company offers various travel styles, including off-season travel, vacation package deals, and YourWay vacations where you can add your own travel touches. Monograms is not your standard guided tour, as trip-goers do not have to participate in organized meals and can add trips to their itineraries. They can also skip some of the planned travel options and set out and do some exploring on their own. People who are more independent like traveling with Monograms Tours, as it gives them more flexibility when planning a special vacation. This type of flexibility makes Monograms the preferred tour operator among people who are seeking more freedom when planning a holiday. Monograms also lessens travel stress by including airport and train transfers in its travel prices. When you arrive for your Monograms tour, a Monograms representative is waiting at the airport – ready to direct you to your driver who will whisk you to your reserved hotel in a central location. It is the goal of Monograms to make its tour experiences as seamless and free of anxiety as possible.

  • A member of the Globus portfolio of travel brands, Monograms is part of a travel organization that has been meeting the needs of travelers since 1928.

  • Monograms travelers do not have to strictly follow their pre-set vacation package. They can also add excursions or free up some time for touring on their own. They can do this with the YourWay planning tool, designed exclusively for any Monograms traveler.
  • In each city a traveler visits with Monograms, the tour operator provides an introductory tour on the first morning. This type of tour allows guests to see some of the more popular sites and learn the history of popular attractions. People simply don't get this type of in-depth knowledge from reading a tour book or guide.
  • Monograms also provides local hosts in each city a traveler visits. Local hosts are not tour guides but provide information about a city. They usually wait in the hotel lobby to suggest what local attractions to see and to answer the questions of Monograms travelers.
  • Travelers can book optional tours that are escorted like the regular tour offerings. If you don't want to add the excursions, that is fine too, as Monograms Tours give trip-goers the flexibility to visit places on their own.

Health and Safety Protocols on Monograms Tours

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

It all starts with Monograms' 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 Monograms' commitment to providing a safe and clean environment for guests.


Monograms 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.


Monograms will ensure safe distances for guests throughout the journey, on coach and during excursions. This includes providing masks for 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 Monograms' Go Beyond Devices in Europe – enables safe distances between guests and other travelers on excursions.


To ensure a healthy environment for team and guests, Monograms will conduct regular temperature checks for both guests and team, and when necessary, masks will be worn by Monograms' team members when with guests.


Traveling with Monograms removes many of the “touch points” of travel, including luggage handling, check in/out, expedited entry into attractions and more. Monograms are further reducing risk with hands-free service, meaning all self-services replaced by staff, including buffet meals replaced with table service. Monograms will also ensure hand sanitizing is available throughout each trip, on coach and in hotels.


As a part of Monograms' commitment to clean, Monograms is requiring enhanced cleaning procedures with hotel partners, on motorcoaches, vehicles and throughout every trip, including additional daily disinfecting procedures that go above-and-beyond already strict health and safety procedures.


Monograms has strict health and safety protocols, which have been in place for years, focused on ensuring all aspects of 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 their promise that each touch-point on tours and cruises are considered in their commitment to guest and team member well-being.
