i enjoyed every aspect of this trip. the excursions were great and well planned and all guides were wonderful . the hotels were so well situated and food was wonderful.

By James P on Aug 12, 2016

We went to London, Paris and Rome in August. It was our first European trip so we chose to use Monograms to eliminate the stress of booking rooms and arranging transportation between cities. Everything worked flawlessly. The hosts in each city were excellent and very helpful. This made our vacation much more stress free and relaxing.

By Heather B on Aug 04, 2016

This was our first trip abroad and it was a dream come true! Our Monograms hosts in each city made us feel welcome and provided us with excellent advice and were easily accessible always. I was extremely happy with the mix of escorted excursions and independent exploring provided. My only regret was not enough time in York. That little city has so much to offer and we could have done with at least one more day. London was fabulous (with our excursions to Warwick Castle, Oxford, Stratford, the Cotswolds, Stongehenge and Bath.) Edinburgh was beautiful, as well. We were there at the same time as the Fringe Festival which added energy to the city. This was a fantastic trip!

By Anita S on Jul 01, 2016

It was truly a wonderful trip...no problems whatsoever. Guides were excellent and very willing to help you with suggestions to get around their city ..in this case Geneva and Lucerne.

By Robert W on Jun 13, 2016

The day trip Monogram provided was 5 1/2 hours long. They provided no water on the bus trip, did not stop for a lunch break, but visited the Vatican and then the Coleseum and Roman Forum without a break. A lot of walking for one morning since we left the hotel at 7:00 am. Then asked who wanted to take the optional walking tour in the afternoon. No response. A little too much for one day, especially since we arrived in Rome the day before. Experiences with Viking tours are much better.

By Richard S on Sep 29, 2015

Our second trip to Conca Park and Sorrento. They gave us what we asked for, and we are very happy.

By Katherine C on Sep 28, 2015

Hotel in Rome (NH Collection Giustiniano) was great...convenient location, clean & comfortable rooms, quiet and no big crowds. The Monograms host was wonderful.

By Shirley H on Sep 10, 2015

Monogram Tours was first class ... definitely 5 star. Thanks for using them in India ... they made our trip very enjoyable.

By Paul T on May 08, 2015

A terrific trip. The Monograms staff covered every detail, offered numerous suggestions for things to do and was very knowledgeable.

By Minn S on Apr 22, 2015

It is our first River Cruise of any kind. We like it very much as most of the land tours are very informative. The guides for the land tours are all experienced experts of the subjects they presented. Concised, technical and made interesting. Some of the extra tours we booked are also very interesting. All in all it is what we expected and more. We will do it again.

By Carol M on Mar 19, 2015

This trip exceeded our expectations- from organizing it to the wonderful local hosts, everything was perfect.
