Tour Itinerary

The Rubik's Cube…can you solve this puzzle? It takes patience, time, and dedication. It was invented in Budapest but unlike the Rubik's Cube, we believe your vacation to Budapest should not be a puzzle that takes a lot of time and patience—or cause frustration. That's why on this 4-day vacation, we've handled the logistics and details for you. We've arranged your hotel reservations, daily breakfast, and sightseeing. Plus, we assume you are not familiar with Budapest and do not speak the language, so we've arranged the services of a Local Host®. This one-of-a-kind feature offered only by Monograms ensures you'll have a "friend in the city" who will answer questions, offer suggestions, arrange activities for you, and help ensure your vacation is all you want it to be. Your vacation begins when you arrive in Budapest, as we can pick you up at the airport and seamlessly whisk you to your selected hotel. After all, why deal with the hassles of airport transfers when you are in a new city? At your hotel, your Local Host will greet you with a warm welcome, help you get settled, and present you with materials to familiarize you with the city. The next morning, after included breakfast, we'll pick you up at your hotel for guided sightseeing with a local expert. We'll take you to Heroes' Square, built in 1896 to represent 1,000 years of Hungarian history. We'll also take you for a drive up to Fishermen's Bastion, built from 1895 to 1902 and where you'll have wonderful views of the city, including the beautiful Parliament building. This city has changed so much in recent history. Your expert Local Guide will be able to share inside stories with you that only locals would know, as well as what it is like to live here. You'll also have a full day to explore on your own (with the support of your Local Host, of course). You may want to visit St. Stephen's Basilica, where you can climb to the top for magnificent 360-degree views of the city, or the Parliament, erected between 1884 and 1904 and one of Europe's largest Parliament buildings. Perhaps shop for paprika and other specialties at the Great Market Hall, an indoor farmers' market. Budapest has many museums, so you may want to visit one of them, such as the House of Terror, where you'll learn how this building played an important role in both the Nazi and Communist regimes. You may just want to relax at one of the thermal baths. Your Local Host will have suggestions on how you can spend your time and can help arrange the activities you desire. Budapest is a fascinating city, and we want you to make the most of your stay. That's why we've handled all of the details—the hotel reservations, your breakfast, your sightseeing, and your Local Host. After all, Budapest is waiting for you!

Day 1: BUDAPEST, HUNGARY.
Üdvözöljük—welcome to the "Pearl of the Danube!" Your Local Host is on hand to help you maximize your time in the capital of Hungary.

Day 2: BUDAPEST.
Morning guided sightseeing includes impressive HEROES' SQUARE with the Millennium Monument, built in 1896, at its center. Behind the monument is a semicircular colonnade with statues of famous men who made their marks on Hungary. Statues atop the colonnade symbolize Labor & Wealth, Knowledge & Glory, War, and Peace. Also take a drive up to the Castle District with Matthias Coronation Church, Fishermen's Bastion, and magnificent panoramas of the city and Danube River.

Day 3: BUDAPEST.
Your Local Host will have many recommendations for your day at leisure including the best places to try spicy Hungarian goulash.

Day 4: BUDAPEST.
Your vacation ends with breakfast this morning.

Hygiene and Safety Protocols for 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.

A SAFE & WARM WELCOME

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.

BLENDING CULTURAL PROXIMITY WITH SOCIAL DISTANCE

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.

FOCUS ON GUEST AND TEAM MEMBER HEALTH

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.

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. 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.

COMMITMENT TO CLEAN

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.

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 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.

It was an amazing trip with fantastic local guides in every location.

Excellent services, reliable, informative, friendly

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.
