Monograms Unveils 2020 Locally Hosted Vacations in Exotic Destinations, including a NEW Voyage to Antarctica

Posted on Mon, Aug 26th, 2019 10:25 am by Martha Chapman

Going to a far-flung destination is always exciting, but today's travellers expect more from their experience. In addition to seeing the world's "must see" sites, they want a real sense of place, of people and of the cultures they're visiting. That's not an easy task for the average independent traveller. At least it wasn't easy, until Monograms – part of the award-winning Globus family of brands – invited people to travel the world independently, with local, expert help in each destination.  And in 2020, Monograms is expanding its diverse vacation portfolio with eight NEW vacations in such exotic destinations as China, Peru, the Galápagos, Argentina, Chile, Guatemala and even Antarctica.


               "Monograms is perfect for the independent traveller who wants all of the details taken care of ahead of time - as well as during their vacation," says Stéphanie Bishop of the Globus family of brands, Monograms parent company. "Not only do you save countless hours of research, but you receive private guided sightseeing in each city as well as VIP access to must-see landmarks." The Monograms Local Host in each destination is, she adds, an invaluable resource for sightseeing, dining and shopping suggestions – and to smooth our any wrinkles that may occur.


               In addition to the on-site services of a Local Host, Monograms offers a choice of hotels in centrally-located neighborhoods and transportation between cities and countries, but that's not all. As part of every Monograms itinerary, travellers also enjoy included sightseeing and a choice of optional excursions.


               Excursions include everything from city sightseeing to off-the-beaten-path adventures such as taking a chairlift to the peak of Cerro Campanario for panoramic views of the Andes Mountains; entering Peru's legendary Machu Picchu – and all its glory – at sunrise; hiking through Tierra del Fuego National Park in Antarctica and or something as fun and novel as partaking in a noodle-making demonstration in Xi'an.

               "We take away any anxiety or concern about travel and replace it with the freedom to enjoy your vacation, knowing you are in the best of expert hands," says Bishop. "Plus with our expanded choice of itineraries – notably to Peru – there's an exotic tour waiting for almost every traveller out there." 


               Monograms is growing its exotic travel portfolio for 2020 with eight NEW locally-hosted vacations. They are:



NEW Heart of China & the Yangtze River (12 days)


NEW Peru: A Luxury Adventure (9 days); including a journey aboard the famous Belmond Hiram Bingham Train with a four-course gourmet dinner.
