Antarctica trip among new Monograms journeys

Monograms unveils 2020 locally hosted holidays in exotic destinations, including a new voyage to Antarctica

Going to a far-flung destination is always exciting, but today’s travellers demand 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 now. Monograms – part of the award-winning Globus family of brands – invites Australians to travel the world independently, with local, expert help in each destination. 


And in 2020, Monograms is expanding its diverse holiday portfolio with over 50 new holidays in such exotic destinations as China, Peru, the Galápagos, Argentina, Chile, Guatemala, South Africa and even, Antarctica.


“If you’re new to a destination with no local friends or family, it’s difficult to get an authentic impression – at least it is if you don’t have time to log countless hours of research,” said Gai Tyrrell, Managing Director Australasia of the Globus family of brands.


“Monograms is the solution. With Monograms, travellers get private guided sightseeing in each city and VIP access to must-see landmarks. They also enjoy the on-site services of a local expert – a Monograms Local Host – who is on-hand to offer insight into the local culture and customs.


"He or she is there for travellers to use – as a local expert, guide and problem-solver – as much, or as little, as they like.”


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




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


“Simply put, Monograms offers travellers a better way to see and experience the world,” said Ms Tyrrell. “And the help and guidance Monograms provides is even more meaningful and valuable in exotic destinations like Asia, Africa and South America. For 2020, no one has the range of Peru holidays and experiences Monograms offers travellers.”


Monograms is growing its exotic travel portfolio for 2020 with over 50 new locally hosted holidays. These include:



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