You will see the Meiji Shrine, a 20th-century Shinto monument built within a man-made forest; the Samurai Museum, where you can learn about Japanese history and see authentic swords and armor; visit the bustling Nakamise Shopping Arcade; and one of the city’s most colorful temples, the Asakusa Kannon Temple.

Enjoy the afternoon and the following day at your leisure. Your Local Host will have suggestions about what to see and do during your stay. Perhaps take an excursion out of the city to Mount Fuji, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the country’s most iconic landmarks. Here, you will cruise on Lake Ashi and take a cable-car ride for spectacular views of the Owakudani volcanic valley and majestic Mount Fuji. Or maybe do a bit of exploring on your own. For an unforgettable view, ascend the 2,080-foot-tall Tokyo Skytree tower and if you’re a tech enthusiast, spend some time in the Akihabara electronics district.

A highlight of the vacation is the Shinkansen (bullet train) ride from Tokyo to Kyoto. Between the nearly 200-mile-per-hour speeds and niceties like heated toilet seats, this is, by far, the most entertaining way to travel between cities. The “cradle” of Japan’s cultural heritage, Kyoto, the “City of Ten-Thousand Shrines,” was the country’s capital and residence of the emperor from the 8th until the 19th centuries. Monograms take you on a guided sightseeing tour that includes visits to Sanjusagendo Temple and the beautiful Temple of the Gold Pavilion. Built on a lake and surrounded by a thick forest, the image of the temple’s reflection in the water is a must-take photo. You’ll also walk through Gion and explore the thousands of Torii Gates at Fushimi Inari Shrine. In your free time, hop aboard a rickshaw for a ride through the Old Town, visit nearby Nara, join a Japanese cooking class, attend a sake tasting, or indulge in some of the country’s finest Japanese cuisine.

Between the transportation we’ve arranged, sightseeing we’ve included, and the hotels we’ve booked, the only thing left for you to do is pack your bags and enjoy! With all the time and hassles saved and the comfort of knowing you’ll have a Local Host to help you during your vacation, you’ve got one fantastic vacation!

Abundance…yep, we all want it. While Monograms can’t help you win the lottery, we can help you find “the land of abundance,” which is how the Quechua Indians refer to Peru.

In the Sacred Valley, visit the market town of Pisac, where you can find local wares at bargain prices, and Ollantaytambo, a great example of Inca town planning and with some of the finest examples of Inca masonry.

No trip to Peru is complete without a visit to Machu Picchu, built in 1450 at the height of the Inca Empire and without a doubt one of the most magnificent settings in South America. You’ll take a train to Machu Picchu, receive an included tour, and if you desire, you’ll have the opportunity to see the sunrise over Machu Picchu and hike to the Sun Gate, the ancient entrance used by the Incas, with your second included entrance to the ruins. Plus, you’ll have access to a Local Host in Machu Picchu—someone who can tell you the history and the culture like no one else.

You’d think the opportunity to have three Local Hosts to assist you would be enough for Monograms. But we’ve taken it one step further by including transportation, sightseeing, and breakfasts. With Monograms, you’ll get to experience the “land of abundance” as it was meant to be experienced!

Here, we’ll take you to see one of the world’s natural wonders, Perito Moreno Glacier, one of the few glaciers in the world that is still advancing. Your senses will come alive as you see and hear the continuous calves of its frozen ice walls. It is nothing short of spectacular!

Monograms has included all of this in your package: hotels, guides, sightseeing, transportation! That doesn’t include the time and hassles saved as well as the intangibles: seeing a glacier that is advancing...priceless. Capturing a perfect photo of the Andes...priceless. Knowing you have someone there for you in each city to make sure your vacation is what you want it to be...priceless!

“You put your left foot in; you put your left foot out; you put your left foot in; and you shake it all about...” How about doing the hokey pokey in Ecuador, and when you put your left foot in, you can put it in the Northern Hemisphere while your right foot stays in the Southern Hemisphere? How many of your friends can say they’ve straddled the middle of the world? Now you can, and Monograms makes it easy! On this 9-day vacation, we’ve arranged your hotel reservations, daily buffet breakfast (plus 4 lunches and 3 dinners), sightseeing, and transportation between cities. Plus, your Local Host® will travel with you throughout the vacation to help ensure your vacation is everything you want it to be.

When you arrive in Quito, your Local Host will greet you with a warm welcome and present you with materials to help you get settled. The next day, after your included breakfast, Monograms will pick you up at your hotel for your private, guided sightseeing with a local expert—someone who knows the inside stories and fascinating history of this city. Your sightseeing will include San Francisco Square, the Virgen de Quito angel statue in Panecillo, and a visit to a bustling Ecuadorian market. The next day, your Local Host will take you to Otavalo and its famous Indian Market, where locals sell their handicrafts. You’ll also visit with Ecuadorian children at a school in the tranquil town of Peguche.

Then you’re off to Baños, passing first through Cotopaxi National Park, with one of the highest active volcanoes in the world, and visiting a Rose Plantation. In Baños, surrounded by majestic mountains, you’ll have the opportunity to relax in some of the hot springs, which are heated by the nearby volcanoes, and visit the striking waterfalls. In Riobamba, enjoy the peace and beauty at the base of Ecuador’s highest volcano, Chimborazo. Here, you’ll experience a vacation highlight: an unforgettable train journey over the Devil’s Nose, passing through small mountain villages and zigzagging as it ascends and descends a steep mountain. The views are spectacular! Speaking of spectacular, we will also take you to the Ingapirca Ruins, the largest Incan ruins in Ecuador, where you’ll see the sun temple (1450-1480) and learn about the Incas’ beliefs and culture.

In Cuenca, we’ll pick you up at your hotel for guided sightseeing that includes the must-see sights: the historical buildings, the main square, and the flower market. Plus, we’ve arranged for you to visit a Panama hat factory and pottery studio, so you can learn more about the local people. Finally, escorted by your Local Host, you’ll visit a Cacao Plantation and travel to the coastal town of Guayaquil, Ecuador’s largest city. Be sure to ask your Local Host for suggestions on where to get local specialties.

And did we mention we’ve included the train journey to Devil’s Nose in your package? Between the sightseeing we’ve included, hotels we have booked, and the private transportation and guide we’ve arranged, the only thing left for you to do is sit back and enjoy. Add the time and hassles saved and the comfort of knowing you’ll have a Local Host with you throughout the vacation, and you’ve got yourself a once-in-a-lifetime vacation opportunity!

Essential China 2018 From Beijing To Shanghai

Monograms $1229 9 Details

According to a Chinese proverb, “It is better to travel ten-thousand miles than to read ten-thousand books.” At Monograms, we couldn’t agree more! That’s why we’ve made it easy for you to travel to China. In fact, we’ve handled all of the details, so you won’t have to sweat the details! On this 9-day vacation, we’ve arranged your choice of hotel accommodations, daily breakfast (plus 3 lunches), private guided sightseeing, and transfers from/to your hotels to/from the airports for your intra-vacation flights. Plus, we have arranged for you to have a Local Host®—someone who will answer questions, offer suggestions, and help ensure your vacation runs smoothly—in Beijing, Xi’an, and Shanghai.

Your vacation begins the moment you arrive in Beijing, where we can escort you from the airport to your selected hotel. Your Local Host will greet you with a warm welcome and help you personalize your stay. The next morning, after an included breakfast, we will pick you up at your hotel for a private guided excursion with a local expert to the Great Wall of China. You’ll have the opportunity to walk along the wall and see amazing views, as well as capture some fantastic photos. The next day, we will pick you up at your hotel for half-day private guided sightseeing in the city, including Tian’anmen Square, the largest public square in the world, and the Forbidden City’s Imperial Palace, once the home of China’s great emperors. Hear the inside stories and little-known facts only a local can share.

Then, you’re off to Xi’an. You’ll probably think that nothing can beat seeing the Great Wall of China, but wait until you see the Terracotta Warriors in Xi’an! Discovered accidentally in 1974, construction on the roughly 8,000 soldiers, chariots, and horses started in 210 BC—all to help China’s first emperor in the afterlife. Your private guided tour with a local expert in Xi’an includes the Terracotta Warriors as well as the Dayan Pagoda, built in 652 AD.

Finally, you will travel to Shanghai, where we have arranged two half-day private guided tours with a local expert. The first tour includes a visit to Yu Yuan Gardens, classical Chinese gardens dating back to the Ming Dynasty, followed by a traditional xiaolongbao (soup dumpling) feast. The second tour includes the Shanghai Museum and a walking tour of the former French Concession, where remnants of a bygone era remain, including the famous Art Deco Cathay Theatre.

The inside visits on your Monograms vacation include VIP access, which means you get to skip the lines! Why wait in line with all the other tourists when you can be up close and personal with the attractions? And did we mention we’ve included a noodle-making demonstration by a master chef in Xi’an? You’ll have the opportunity to learn how to make Chinese noodles by hand. Between the sightseeing and guides we’ve arranged, the hotels we’ve booked, and the transfers we’ve included, all you have to do is get out there and enjoy yourself! Add the time and hassles saved by not having to figure out what to do, where to go, and how to get from place to place—not to mention the comfort of having local experts with you throughout your vacation—and you have a perfect vacation!

Regardless of what you choose, you’ll be amazed at the beauty all around you. A photo cannot capture it; you must experience it for yourself.

After a full day in Cairns to explore on your own (with the support of your Local Host, of course), you'll fly to the Outback, where you’ll see the sunrise at Uluru (Ayers Rock) and enjoy drinks & canapés while watching the sunset at Kata Tjuta (the Olgas). While in the Outback, we've also arranged for you to visit the Uluru-Kata Culural Centre with its amazing collection of Aboriginal arts.

Your final destination is Sydney, where we will have a Local Host waiting to welcome you to this bustling city. The next day, after your included breakfast, we’ll pick you up at your hotel for guided sightseeing with a local expert. Hear the insider stories around the must-see sights, such as the Opera House and Bondi Beach.

Next, travel to the Kruger National Park area, where we transfer you to your lodge in a private game reserve. From here, head out multiple times with a professional Ranger in search of Africa's “Big 5”—lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and Cape buffalo. You’re sure to encounter many other species as well. Cap off each day with refreshing included sundowner drinks, the perfect way to relax and reflect as the sun sets over the beautiful South Africa landscape.

“Et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.” Who said this? That’s right…the King of Siam (now Thailand) in “The King and I.” We’re not sure, but we think he was referring to all the benefits you get from traveling with Monograms: included meals, sightseeing, expert guides, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.

Your vacation begins the moment you arrive in Bangkok, as we can pick you up at the airport and take you to your selected hotel. Your Local Host will greet you with a warm welcome and help you get settled. The next morning, after included breakfast, we’ve arranged for a private guided tour of Bangkok. Visit the Temple of the Dawn, whose 260-foot-tall spire has become identified with Bangkok; the Grand Palace; the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, painstakingly carved from a single block of jade; and the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, the oldest and largest Buddhist temple in Bangkok.

We have then arranged transportation for you to Ban Thaton, where you will have two private guided tours. We will take you to an Akha village, a hill tribe known for gorgeous headdresses decorated with silver coins, and to a Karen village, home to the Padaung long-necked women, who have brass rings placed on their necks and legs as little girls, creating the visual illusion of stretching their necks.

From Ban Thaton, we will transport you to Chiang Mai, where you will visit Wat Phra Singh with its famous Buddha image, and Wat Doi Suthep, a temple tucked away in the mountains, where you will enjoy spectacular views of Chiang Mai. You will have a full day at your leisure to enjoy independent exploration or perhaps book an optional Thai cooking class or attend a Khantoke dinner show featuring a local dance performance.

Wilds Of Botswana & Victoria Falls 2019 From Johannesburg To Johannesburg

Monograms $5469 10 Details

Smoking…we all know it’s bad for you. But what about “the smoke that thunders” or “Mosi-oa-Tunya,” which is what the locals call Victoria Falls? Seeing them will delight you and will most assuredly be good for you. And no one brings you Victoria Falls like Monograms! Victoria Falls is not the only place you’ll visit on this 11-day vacation. You’ll also go on safari in some of Botswana’s most famous game reserves and national parks. We’ve made it easy for you by arranging your choice of accommodations, most of your meals, game drives, and more. And on safari, you’ll have experienced Rangers and game trackers with you on all game viewing activities. Plus, a one-of-a-kind feature is the Monograms Local Host®—someone who is there to help make sure your vacation runs smoothly—in both Johannesburg & Victoria Falls.

Your vacation begins the moment you arrive in Johannesburg, where we can pick you up at the airport and escort you to your hotel. The next day, after an included breakfast, you'll fly to Botswana and the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, the largest game reserve in southern Africa. Here, you will have three game drives in a 4-wheel-drive safari vehicle. Be on the lookout for cheetah, leopard, springbok, gemsbok, the rare brown hyena, and the famed black-maned Kalahari lion. We've also arranged for you to have a guided walk with San Bushmen to learn about their intriguing culture, survival and hunting skills, and extensive knowledge of desert animal and plant life.

Then, it’s off to the famed Okavango Delta. This area features various ecosystems—wetlands, mopane forest, flood plains, and dry savannah woodland—making it ideal for your three game activities here. Have your camera ready for cheetah, hyena, impala, Cape buffalo, and more. We’ll also take you to Chobe National Park, which features some of the greatest concentrations of wildlife in Africa. You'll have three game activities here consisting of game drives and boat excursions. You may see giraffe, lion, and huge herds of elephant, which are said to be the largest elephants on Earth.

Finally, a private transfer brings you to Zimbabwe and Victoria Falls, the largest waterfall in the world. Your Local Host in Victoria Falls will help you get settled and feel right at home. We've arranged for you to have a private, guided walk of Victoria Falls, so you can learn the history of the falls and hear about the surrounding flora and fauna. Photos do not do justice to these awe-inspiring falls; you must experience them in person! And did we mention we've included a cruise on the Zambezi River, where you'll have an opportunity to take photographs of the wildlife—such as hippos, crocodiles, and elephants—and a stunning Africa sunset?

Between the game drives we've included, the hotels and lodges we’ve booked, and the guides and transportation we've arranged, all you have to do is make sure you remember your camera! We've taken care of the rest. Between the time saved, the hassles taken care of regarding where to go and how to get from one destination to the next, and even having locals there to help you spot the game, you've got yourself an unbeatable vacation!

You will spend the duration of your day in Hue, where you will visit the Imperial Citadel and the Thien Mu Pagoda. You’ll also get to visit the Tombs of the Nguyen Emperors, and the Royal Tomb of Tu Duc.

Finally, you will spend two days in Ho Chi Minh City. Take a private guided walking tour along Dong Khoi Street, where you will see some of the city’s historic landmarks, including Ho Chi Minh Square and the Municipal Theatre. Visit the moving War Remnants Museum and the city’s oldest and largest market, Ben Thanh Market. On your second day, you will visit the Cu Chi Tunnels, more than 120 miles of underground tunnels, formerly used as a hideout for the Viet Cong. There’s plenty of free time in the afternoons to do as you please. You may like to shop for souvenirs or sample pho (noodle soup) or che (local dessert) at one of the many open-air restaurants. Your Local Host can make suggestions and help you make the most of your stay.

Make your vacation to Vietnam one to enjoy, not stress about! We handle the hotels, transportation, private guided sightseeing, and activities for you, so that your only worry is which local specialty to try next!

Your African safari starts when you arrive in Nairobi. We can pick you up at the airport and help you manage the hassle of getting to your hotel. The next day, after an included breakfast, adventure off on your first game drive at Maasai Mara National Reserve – the most famous game area in Kenya. This reserve has a strong permanent population of wildlife, so stay on the lookout for the “Big 5” – lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and Cape buffalo. You will spend two full days at this reserve.

Next, fly south for a quick stop in South Africa’s capital city of Johannesburg before heading to Zimbabwe. A trip to Africa wouldn’t be complete without experiencing Victoria Falls. We've arranged for you to have a private, guided walk of the mighty falls and a sunset cruise on the Zambezi River, where you'll have an opportunity to take photographs of the wildlife and sip on a drink as you watch a spectacular African sunset—the perfect ending to a day of discovery!

Finally, fly into beautiful Cape Town where your Local Host® will take you on a private tour of the city’s highlights. Ascend to the top of Table Mountain, visit the penguins at Boulders Beach, and stop at the Cape of Good Hope – the southernmost point on the African continent. The following day is free to explore on your own or you can join an optional excursion. Consider a visit to the beautiful Cape winelands for a magical day winery visits and tastings. From June to December you can also choose to go whale-watching in Hermanus, the self-proclaimed whale-watching capital of the world.

With Monograms, your dream vacation to Africa doesn’t feel so far out of reach. With all of the details arranged for you, all you have to do is pack your bags and prepare for this once-in-a-lifetime experience!

Sun & Fun Down Under 2018 From Sydney To Port Douglas

Monograms $2009 11 Details

Sun and fun down under…sounds like bliss, doesn't it? And no one brings you sun and fun like Monograms! On this 11-day vacation, we've arranged your hotel reservations, sightseeing, daily breakfast, and transfers from/to your hotels to/from the airports for your intra-vacation flights. Plus, you'll have a Monograms Local Host ®—someone who knows the ins and outs and is there to ensure your vacation goes smoothly—to answer your questions, arrange optional activities, and offer suggestions for shopping and dining.

Your vacation begins the moment you arrive in Sydney, where we can seamlessly whisk you from the airport to your selected hotel. Your guided sightseeing in Sydney with a local expert includes photo stops at the world-famous Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge. You'll also have a full day to explore Sydney on your own (with the support of your Local Host of course). You may want to climb to the top of Sydney Harbour Bridge for amazing views; explore the cobblestone streets at the Rocks, the harborside area where the first convicts settled; or visit Hunter Valley to sample Australia wines.

Then, we'll take you to the airport so you can fly to the Gold Coast, a tropical paradise known for its white-sand beaches. From the Gold Coast, you'll take an included excursion to Mount Tamborine National Park, where a guided rainforest walk takes you to a tropical waterfall. Keep your eyes open for native wildlife. Monograms has also arranged a local wine tasting and a visit to the Gallery Walk, where local artists showcase their works. In your free time at the Gold Coast, you may want to soak in the sun on the white-sand beach, visit Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary to feed a kangaroo or cuddle a koala, or enjoy the Gold Coast’s thriving food scene.

Finally, you'll fly to Cairns and be transported to Port Douglas, a beachside town surrounded by rainforest and the Coral Sea. Here, you'll have the experience of a lifetime when you board a catamaran and cruise to the Great Barrier Reef, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. You can choose to snorkel, take a semi-submersible watercraft tour, or attend a presentation by a marine biologist. This underwater world, with its brilliant colors and fish swimming around you, is nothing short of spectacular! With your two full days of leisure in Port Douglas, you may want to stroll on Four Mile Beach, browse the shops in downtown Port Douglas, or visit the Daintree Forest, the world's oldest living rainforest.

With the time and hassles you save by letting Monograms take care of the details, all you have to do is enjoy this Australia vacation filled with fun and sun!

Brazil, Argentina & Chile 2019 From Rio De Janeiro To Santiago

Monograms $2349 12 Details

According to Chile’s famous poet, Pablo Neruda, “Laughter is the language of the soul.” Well, you’ll be laughing in Chile on this vacation, because Monograms has handled all the details for you, allowing you to just relax, enjoy…and laugh! And it’s not just Chile you’ll visit; you’ll also visit Brazil & Argentina. On this 12-day vacation, we’ve arranged your hotel reservations, daily buffet breakfast, and sightseeing. Plus, a one-of-a-kind feature is the Monograms Local Host®, a “friend” who will answer your questions, offer suggestions, and help ensure your vacation runs smoothly in each city.

Your vacation begins the moment you arrive. Monograms can pick you up at the airport, so you don’t have to deal with hassles or logistical issues of getting to your hotel after your flight to Rio de Janeiro. At your selected hotel, your Local Host will help you get settled, present you with materials to familiarize you with the city, and help personalize your trip. The next morning, after your included breakfast, we’ll pick you up at your hotel for a private sightseeing tour with a local expert. Your tour includes a cog-wheel train through Tijuca Forest to the top of Corcovado Mountain, home to the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue, one of the new Seven Modern Wonders of the World. In Buenos Aires, your private sightseeing features the must-see attractions, including the La Boca district and the Cemetery of the Recoleta, where Eva Peron is buried. From a local expert, hear why Buenos Aires is called the “Paris of South America” and learn insider secrets. In Santiago, your private sightseeing with an expert local guide includes the Plaza de Armas and an inside visit to the 18th-century Cathedral. Throughout the vacation, the inside visits include VIP access, so you can skip the lines. Why be like all the other tourists standing in line when you can be up close and personal with the tango dancers in the La Boca district or capturing the perfect shot from atop Corcovado Mountain?

In each city, you’ll have a full day to explore on your own (with the support of your Local Hosts of course). Perhaps enjoy a samba show in Rio and a Tango show in Buenos Aires. Take an excursion to Chile’s wine country or explore the markets offered in each city. And it’s not just the cities you’ll experience on this vacation…we’ll also take you to Iguassu Falls, where we’ll give you a private tour on both the Argentine and Brazilian sides of the falls. Hear the thundering roar of the water, see the surrounding luxuriant growth, and be awed by the rainbows formed in the mist. It is nothing short of spectacular!

Between the sightseeing, guides, hotels, and transportation we’ve arranged, plus the time saved and the reassurance of having Local Hosts in each city, you’ve got yourself a wonderful vacation!

Did you know Peru has a national quidditch team—at least according to Harry Potter fans? Monograms has not included a fantasy quidditch game on this vacation, but we have included the must-see attractions you’d expect to see in Peru...and we’ve made it easy for you by handling all the details! On this 12-day vacation, we’ve arranged your hotel reservations, sightseeing, daily breakfast (plus three lunches and one dinner), and transportation. You’ll also have the services of a one-of-a-kind feature, the Monograms Local Host®, who is there for you in each city to give you insider knowledge, answer questions, translate for you if needed, and help make sure your vacation runs smoothly.

Your vacation begins the moment you arrive, as we can whisk from the airport to your selected hotel. Your Local Host will greet you with a warm welcome and materials to help you get settled and personalize your vacation. The next morning, after your included breakfast, we’ll pick you up from your hotel for guided sightseeing with a local expert. Hear insider stories and see the must-see attractions, such as San Francisco Monastery and Plaza de Armas. Peru has become renowned as a gastronomic destination so be sure to ask your Local Host for the best place to grab some local specialties.

The next day, we’ve arranged your transportation to Ica, where you’ll enjoy a flight over the Nazca Lines. Here, you’ll wonder why the ancient Nazca people, who thrived here from 200 BC to 500 AD, created illustrations that could only be seen from the air. It’s a puzzle that has kept archaeologists speculating ever since they were discovered. Next, you’ll cruise to the Ballestas Islands, inhabited by a wide variety of sea mammals and exotic birds, including Humbolt penguins.

We’ve also arranged your sightseeing of ancient Inca ruins. In the Sacred Valley, visit the Inca fortress of Ollantaytambo, where you’ll see some of the finest examples of Inca masonry and town planning. In Cusco, visit the semi-circular Kenko Amphitheater and the Temple of Sacsayhuaman, built in the early 12th century with some stones weighing more than 350 tons. Of course, no trip to Peru is complete without a visit to Machu Picchu, the most famous Inca fortress set in a majestic setting. You’ll take the train to Machu Picchu, have a guided tour with a local expert, and stay overnight. In the morning, you’ll have the chance to wake up early and see the sunrise over Machu Picchu—a spectacular sight indeed!

Next, you are on your way to the town of Puno, on the shores of Lake Titicaca, South America’s largest lake. You’ll enjoy a cruise to Taquile Island, known for its handcrafted textiles, and Uros Islands, made completely of reeds, which are continually added to by the Uros Indians who live there.

On this vacation, you’ll be taking buses, trains, planes, and automobiles. You’ll be visiting many ancient sights, small towns, and markets. But don’t worry...we’ve arranged it all for you and handled all the details. Add the time savings and organization hassles, and you’ve got yourself a vacation of a lifetime!

Oz. When Dorothy was there, she encountered munchkins, flying monkeys, witches, and a yellow brick road. On your vacation to Oz, as Australia is commonly nicknamed, you'll encounter exciting cities, friendly people, and amazing natural scenery. And Monograms makes it easy for you to go. On this 13-day vacation, we've arranged your hotel reservations, sightseeing, daily breakfast, and private transfers from/to your hotels to/from the airports for your intra-vacation flights. We've also arranged for you to have a Local Host®—someone who is there for you throughout your stay to answer questions, offer suggestions, and ensure your vacation runs smoothly—in Sydney, Cairns, and Melbourne.

Your vacation begins when you arrive in Sydney, as we can seamlessly get you from baggage claim to your selected hotel. There, your Local Host will provide a warm welcome greeting and a set of materials to help you get settled and personalize your vacation. In fact, your Local Host will provide you with information. We've also arranged for you to enjoy a guided sightseeing tour with a local expert in each city. In Sydney, hear what it's like to live in this friendly city as you visit famous Bondi Beach and see the must-see attractions, such as the Opera House. And don't worry; we’ve scouted out the best place to take photos of Sydney’s Harbour Bridge. In Melbourne, we’ll show you Queen Victoria Market, the Royal Botanic Gardens, and much more. A free day in each city—Sydney, Cairns, and Melbourne—lets you explore on your own. Your Local Host will have plenty of suggestions, such as a trip to the Blue Mountains outside of Sydney or to the quiet mountain village of Kuranda near Cairns. Or you may just want to wander around shopping for local specialties.

In addition to the great cities, we've also arranged for you to visit some of Australia's most amazing natural sights. We’ll take you on a cruise to Australia's Great Barrier Reef. You'll be able to snorkel, take a semi-submersible watercraft tour, or attend a presentation by a marine biologist. Similarly, we've arranged for you to visit the Uluru-Kata Tjuta Culural Centre with its amazing collection of Aborginal arts. You'll also enjoy drinks and canapés, as you witness the sunset at Kata Tjuta (the Olgas). From the luxuriant water of the Great Barrier Reef to the awe-inspiring, arid monolith of Ayers Rock, these sights are nothing short of spectacular!

Did we mention we've also included sightseeing of Alice Springs? We’ll show you what life is like in this remote region and show you the must-see attractions, including the Royal Flying Doctor Service. With the sightseeing we've included and the transportation we've arranged, and the time you save by trying to arrange this all yourself, you’ve got yourself a vacation of a lifetime!

Captivating China 2018 From Beijing To Shanghai

Monograms $2169 13 Details

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” This wise phrase from Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu sums up Monograms’ philosophy. But we believe the first step should be easy and a no-brainer. That’s why we handle all your vacation details for you. We make it where your “journey of a thousand miles” only requires you to take the first step—to contact us! On this 13-day vacation, we’ve arranged your hotel reservations, daily breakfast (plus five lunches), private guided sightseeing, and transfers from/to your hotels to/from the airports for all intra-vacation flights. To make your journey as comfortable and easy as possible, we also offer the services of a Local Host—someone who will answer questions, offer suggestions, and help ensure your vacation runs smoothly in every city: Beijing, Chengdu, Xi’an, Guilin, and Shanghai. Your Local Host will welcome you with a smile when you arrive, and will help you get settled and familiar with each city and to help you personalize your vacation.

Your vacation begins the moment you arrive in Beijing, as we can pick you up at the airport and take you to your selected hotel. While in Beijing, we have arranged for you to have two private sightseeing tours with local experts. We’ll take you to the Great Wall, a must-see when you are in China. You’ll have the opportunity to walk along the wall and see amazing views, as well as capture some fantastic photos. The next day, visit Tian’anmen Square, the largest public square in the world, and the Forbidden City’s Imperial Palace, once the home of China’s great emperors. Your guide will share inside stories and the history of these attractions, not to mention what life is like in Beijing. From Beijing, fly to Chengdu. A full-day private guided excursion brings you to see the Leshan Giant Buddha, the world’s tallest stone Buddha at 233 feet. View the Buddha from a cruise on the river and from several vantage points on land. You’ll also visit the Giant Panda Research Base for a chance to see these beautiful animals up close!

Next, fly to Xi’an in central China. Here, your private guided tour includes a visit to the Dayan Pagoda, built in 652 AD. Of course, you cannot come to Xi’an—or even China, for that matter—without seeing the Terracotta Warriors, an archaeological treasure trove. Then, you’re off to the most scenic part of your vacation. In Guilin, one of China’s most beautiful areas, we’ve arranged for private guided sightseeing of its highlights. The highpoint will undoubtedly be a cruise on the tranquil Li River, where you will leave modern civilization behind as you pass by rice paddies, fishermen on bamboo rafts, and water buffalo grazing in the river.

Finally, fly to Shanghai, where your Local Host will be waiting for you. We’ve arranged two half-day private guided tours with a local expert, including the Yu Yuan Gardens, classical Chinese gardens dating back to the Ming Dynastym and a walking tour of the former French Concession, where remnants of a bygone era remain and feature the famous Art Deco Cathay Theatre. We’ve also included a traditional xiaolongbao (soup dumpling) feast and free time in Shanghai for you to explore on your own (with the support of your Local Host, of course).

We know that sometimes experiencing the culture hands-on is the best way to learn. That’s why we’ve included a noodle-making demonstration in Xi’an, as well as a visit to a local tea farm in Guilin for a hands-on demonstration of the tea-making process, followed by a tea ceremony. And that’s not all. Monograms has arranged VIP access for your inside visits. That means that rather than standing in long lines, we give you VIP access at the key sights. You’re traveling all the way to China, so why waste your time standing in line when you can be enjoying yourself?

Between the sightseeing we’ve arranged, the transportation and meals we’ve included, the hotels we’ve booked, and the attractions we’ve included, all you have to do is take that first step and call us—and then enjoy yourself on vacation! We’ve taken care of the other "thousand miles." With the time saved and the comfort of knowing you will have a Local Host with you throughout your vacation, you’ve got yourself a vacation that even Lao Tzu could not resist!

Naturally New Zealand 2018 From Auckland To Queenstown

Monograms $3319 13 Details

God’s Own Country…it might sound conceited, but this is how New Zealanders—or “kiwis”—refer to their country. Why? Maybe because it offers stunning beauty. Maybe because it’s one of the first countries in the world to see the sunrise. Maybe because bungee jumping first began there. Don’t worry—we won’t make you go bungee jumping, unless you choose to do that on your own! Instead, we’ll show you the amazing beauty and fun cities. On this 13-day vacation, we've arranged your hotel accommodations, daily breakfast (plus four lunches and one dinner), sightseeing, land transportation, and transfers from/to your hotels to/from the airports for all intra-vacation flights. A one-of-a-kind special feature is the Monograms Local Host®, someone who is there for you to ensure your vacation runs smoothly and you get the most out of your trip. We've arranged for you to have a Local Host in Auckland, Christchurch, and Queenstown.

Your vacation begins the moment you arrive in Auckland, as we can help after the long flight by getting you from the airport to your selected hotel. Your Local Host will greet you with a warm welcome and a set of materials to help you get settled and familiar with the city. The next day, we've arranged guided sightseeing with a local expert, including a cruise on Waitemata Harbour for spectacular views of Auckland. From Auckland, we've arranged your transportation to Waitomo, where you’ll take a boat trip to the famous Waitomo Glowworm Caves, and to Matamata, where you’ll visit the Hobbiton movie set from The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit films. In Wellington, capital of New Zealand, you'll enjoy a guided sightseeing tour that reveals the local, insider stories and takes in the must-see sights. Then, you're off to Christchurch on New Zealand's South Island. Your Local Host will be waiting for you in Christchurch with materials to help you become acquainted with the area. We’ll take you on an excursion to Akaroa for a cruise to see native wildlife.

From Christchurch, we've arranged your transportation to Mount Cook National Park, where you'll have time to explore this alpine wonderland set in the Southern Alps. Perhaps explore New Zealand’s largest glacier or be dazzled by the Southern Hemisphere’s stars in the night sky. Continue on to Queenstown, the "Adventure Capital of the World." Here, we’ll take you on what will undoubtedly be a highlight of your trip: a cruise on Milford Sound in Fiordland National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, boasting some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world. Sometimes called the “Sound of Silence,” you’ll be awed by its abundant flora and fauna, as well as its raw beauty.

And did we mention that in Rotorua we've included visits to Rainbow Springs, where you’ll see the native kiwis (birds—not New Zealanders), and Te Puia, home to 500 geothermal wonders. With Monograms, we handle all the details and you save valuable time and avoid stress by not having to create this dream vacation on your own. So, what are you waiting for? New Zealand awaits. All you need to do is pack your bags and go!
