We even provide you with a Local Host® who is available to answer your questions and provide you with suggestions about things to see and do throughout your stay.Your vacation begins the moment you arrive at Lake Maggiore.

Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?
Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?
Our trip was wonderful. Everything that was offered was provided. The local hosts were great and professional.
The travel consultants are knowlegeable about tour details and do a great job matching customer needs with the right tour.
Monograms was just the right mix for us. City tours and transportation were great - but we enjoyed the flexibility of going out and seeing what we wanted to see at our own pace.
Outstanding service and organized. Would recommend to anyone.
I wouldn't change a thing. From start to finish-professional advice and detailed explanation of what to expect-a great adventure!
The Monograms local host system worked like clockwork. They were there as scheduled and took the worry out of flight, hotel, and tour transfers.
A trip that I found to be a nightmare to try and plan on my own was made so easy by having Marianne take charge and make all of the arrangements. I had been searching on line, had met with a local travel agent, and was overwhelmed and really getting nowhere. I was ready to give up on my trip planning, stumbled across finding Marianne, and suddenly she made the seemingly impossible happen with no problems! Without her expertise guiding me along and handling the arrangements, I have no doubt that this trip would not have happened. As for the trip: Monograms did a superb job with putting their package together. It more than exceeded my expectations. this will undoubtedly rank as one of my best trips EVER.
Monograms was fantastic. We were independant and did not use them for many of the excursions but they were very helpful for first day orientation, suggestions and were available throughout for any questions. The included half day tours were very good. If you wanted to have everything arranged for you instead of being independant there were many good excursions to choose from.
Very well organized tour, knowledgeable guides. Have a wonderful time.
Monograms was wonderful! Everything was just as they promised. The travel was easy, there were no surprises, it was a stress-free vacation! Having the local host available was great. They were all valuable.
This is our third trip booked with Trena through Affordable Tours using the Globus company. The trip went off without a single glitch from flights to airport transfers to hotel.
Monograms, for the most part, was great We loved the "independent tour" format which gave us much more flexibility with our time in each place we visited. The local hosts were great-some better for us than others--but very helpful. The city tours which were provided varied in quality but usually gave a good overview of the city. A couple of our hotels were not as good as others (construction in progress, smaller rooms or breakfast not as comprehensive) but all were clean and adequate. Two of our flights were changed by the airlines, but the transportation contracted by Monograms did not get the change (schedule change occurred weeks before we left the US for our trip) so did not arrive to take us to the airport. Thank goodness for Uber!
The hotels were wonderful, I can't complain about that.
Monograms tours was professional & efficient from start to finish. Getting us from location to location, professional staff located at a desk at each hotel available during the day & accessible by phone, amazing locations in each city (London, Paris, France) near landmarks...highly recommend.
The trip was amazing, and we couldn't have done it without Affordable Tours' help.
