Hidden Gems Of New England 2018

Tauck $3890 8 Details


Crafted by Tauck and Ken Burns Designed by filmmakers Ken Burns and Dayton Duncan, this singular journey explores New England's picturesque heart where landmark sites, historic homes, farms and nature's dramatically contrasting vistas evoke the spirit of a place whose ideas shaped America.Classic New England lives in Boston Common, in the White Mountains aglow with autumn colors, in the general store, the diamond at Fenway Park, and the sustainable soil of Billings Farm... in the whimsical design of the Mark Twain House and the drama of the rugged Maine coast... in Augustus Saint-Gaudens' studio where images of American heroes were forged, in millwheels, covered bridges, and white-steepled churches, and the rocky soil that has long been fertile ground for thinkers, artists, writers, inventors, entrepreneurs and Revolutionaries. This is, as Dayton Duncan observes, Ken Burns's backyard: "New England has always had a special place in American history and American thought. And New England has become Ken Burns's backyard - not just the place where he's raised his family and made his documentaries in the classic New England town of Walpole, New Hampshire, but also a place intertwined with many of the stories he's told: Mark Twain, Baseball, The Civil War and The National Parks: America's Best Idea. It's a distinct region with its own beauty and its own secret treasures - and who better to share them but one of its proudest residents."

3 Nights Rome, 3 Nights Paris & 3 Nights London 2018 From Rome To London

Monograms $2280 10 Details

Some say, “Only Paris is worthy of Rome; only Rome is worthy of Paris.” At Monograms, we don’t agree entirely, because we think London is worthy of both! That’s why we’ve put together a vacation package with all three—Rome, Paris, and London. In fact, on this travel package, we've arranged your hotel reservations in all three cities, daily breakfast, sightseeing, transportation between cities, and transfers from/to your hotel to/from the train stations. Plus, a one-of-a-kind feature is the Monograms Local Host®, someone who is on hand throughout your stay to answer questions, arrange your activities, offer suggestions, and help maximize your vacation time. We've arranged for you to have a Local Host in Rome, Paris, and London.

Your vacation package begins the moment you arrive in Rome, where we can pick you up at the airport and seamlessly whisk you to your selected hotel. Here, your Local Host will greet you with a warm welcome, help you get settled, and present you with a set of materials to familiarize you with the city. In fact, in each city—Rome, Paris, & London—your Local Host will meet you on your first day, help you get settled, and give you a Destination Guide full of useful information on the city. In each city, we've also arranged sightseeing with a local expert. Hear the inside stores about the must-see attractions and learn little-known secrets as you see each city’s famous landmarks.

In Rome, your sightseeing includes the Vatican Museums, where you’ll see its amazing treasures; the Sistine Chapel, where you’ll view Michelangelo's The Last Judgment and his famous ceiling paintings; St. Peter's Square and Basilica, built in 313 AD; the iconic Colosseum, famous for its gladiator fights; and the Roman Forum, where you’ll see the oldest structures of the ancient city. In addition to famous sights such as the Arc de Triomphe, your Paris sightseeing tour features Notre Dame Cathedral, dating back to 1163, and a Seine River cruise, a beautiful way to see Paris. In London, see Big Ben and Westminster Abbey, where Prince William and Kate Middleton were married, and visit St. Paul's Cathedral, where you'll hear the fascinating history of this iconic cathedral. We’ll also take you to see the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace. And never fear...the inside visits included in your Monograms vacation include VIP access, which means you get to skip the lines! After all, why wait in line with all the other tourists when you can be up close and personal with the attractions? In Rome alone, that will save you over four hours of vacation time!

In each city, you'll have time to explore on your own (with the support of your Local Host, of course). You may want to shop at the famous department stores, such as Harrods and Selfridges in London; at the designer Italian boutiques along Rome’s Via Conditti; or at the Galeries Lafayette in Paris, where we’ve secured shopping discounts for you. Perhaps take an excursion from Rome to Tivoli, where Hadrian built his villa at the peak of the Roman Empire; to the Palace of Versailles from Paris; and to mysterious Stonehenge near London. The possibilities in each city are endless!

And did we mention your Monograms travel package includes transportation between the cities? We've included your seat on the high-speed Eurostar train from Paris to London. We've even included transfers from your Rome hotel to the airport, from the Paris airport to your hotel, from your Paris hotel to the train station, and from the London train station to your selected hotel. With the transportation and transfers we've included, the sightseeing and guides we’ve arranged, and the hotels we've booked, you just have to remember your camera! Add the comfort of knowing you’ll have Local Host for you throughout your stay, and it's a vacation of a lifetime.

On this westbound version, cruise from London to Dublin, and spend two nights each in premier hotels in the heart of each city. On the eastbound version, begin with two nights at a premier hotel in the heart of Dublin, then sail to the Isle of Man in the Irish Sea, where you'll discover its unique cultural mix of Celtic, Norse and British influences. Most days you'll have a choice of sightseeing excursion; they include: A visit to historic Belfast, where the Titanic was built, and experience the compelling interactive exhibits at the Titanic Experience.

3 Nights London, 3 Nights Paris & 3 Nights Amsterdam 2018 From London To Amsterdam

Monograms $2525 10 Details

Gulliver’s Travels…it’s a classic story about a man traveling in foreign lands who doesn’t know the language and has many mishaps. Imagine how different things could have been for him if he had experienced these foreign lands with a local—someone who knew the language, could answer questions, and could offer suggestions to make sure his travels ran smoothly! We don’t want you to end up like Gulliver, so that’s why on this 10-day vacation, we’ve arranged for you to have a Local Host® in each city: London, Paris, and Amsterdam. This one-of-a-kind feature offered only by Monograms will ensure you have a “friend in the city” to assist you and help ensure your vacation is what you want it to be. We’ve also arranged your hotel reservations, daily breakfast, sightseeing, transportation between cities, and transfers from/to your hotels to/from the train stations.

This vacation includes three nights each in London, Paris, and Amsterdam. It begins the moment you arrive in London, where your Local Host will greet you with a warm welcome and a set of materials to familiarize you with the city and to help personalize your vacation. The next morning, after included breakfast, we’ll pick you up at your hotel for exclusive, guided sightseeing with a local expert. You'll hear the inside stories around places like Westminster Abbey, where Prince William and Kate Middleton were married, and the Houses of Parliament. We’ll take you inside St. Paul's Cathedral, the iconic cathedral with a long history and where Prince Charles and Lady Diana were married. We’ll also take you to see the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace, an experience that any traveler to London must have.

And it's not just London where we've arranged a Local Host and guided sightseeing. When you arrive in Paris and Amsterdam, your Local Host will greet you and once again present you with materials to familiarize you with the city. In both cities, we've also arranged guided sightseeing with an expert Local Guide. In Paris, we’ve scouted out the best place to capture a photo of the iconic Eiffel Tower, and we’ll take you there. We’ll also take you to Notre Dame Cathedral, dating from 1163, where you’ll admire its amazing 13th-century, stained-glass Rose Window. For a different perspective on Paris, we've arranged for you to enjoy a Seine River cruise, a beautiful way to see the city. In Amsterdam, your guided sightseeing also includes a cruise. You'll travel by glass-roofed boat through Amsterdam's canals, the best way to see houses built during Holland’s Golden Age, as well as its famous bridges and fascinating houseboats. We’ll also take you to a diamond center and the Rijksmuseum, where you’ll see works by Rembrandt and other Dutch masters.

In each city, you’ll have a full day to explore on your own. In London, you may want to ride the London Eye; shop at the world-famous department stores, such as Harrods and Selfridges; enjoy a cruise on the Thames River; ride a double-decker bus and the famous Underground; or enjoy a show in London's West End. From Paris, perhaps take an excursion to the opulent Palace of Versailles; shop at the many designer boutiques and department stores, such as the Galeries Lafayette, where we’ve secured discounts for you; enjoy dinner at the Eiffel Tower or at one of the many restaurants along the Champs-Elysées; visit one of the many museums; or enjoy a walk in the Jardin du Luxembourg. In Amsterdam, you may want to visit the Anne Frank House or the Van Gogh Museum, join the locals and ride a bike along the canals, or take an excursion to the fishing villages of Volendam and Marken.

And don't forget…your package includes transportation between the cities. You’ll travel via the high-speed Eurostar train from London to Paris (imagine the thrill of riding through the Chunnel!) and by high-speed Thalys train (first-class) from Paris to Amsterdam. We've even included transfers from/to your hotels to/from the train stations. Between that and the sightseeing and guides we've arranged, and the hotels we’ve booked, all you have to do is enjoy your adventures. But unlike Gulliver, we’ll be there to guide and help you—it’s an amazing vacation opportunity!
