We Plan. You Play.

You want to see the world, but you don't know where to begin? Well, Monograms began a long time ago — putting all of the planning, arranging and coordinating into an all-in-one package. In fact, the work is done. It's time to start crossing sights off your list. It's time to turn "someday" into "today." It's time to just go. And enjoy once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

Globetrotting is fun. Research — not so much. With Monograms, they take on the endless hours of organizing and scheduling so you can see the sights, experience new cultures, and dance to new rhythms. From arranging the right hotels and efficient transportation to providing your own local hosts and included sightseeing, they've thought of – and included – everything you need in an all-in-one package. But it doesn't stop there. They're also on the scene at your destination helping you make the most of your time. So you can officially stop planning. And start going.
