Monograms Independent – Best of Japan with Hiroshima – View the entire itinerary

Omotenashi – a Japanese word that conveys the sense of warmth in hospitality and a hallmark of Japanese culture. Beyond a friendly reception, there is a sense of anticipation that is one step ahead of the spoken request. Throughout our journey in Japan, we experienced the gracious service and welcome for which this ancient island nation is known—never rushed or compelled by a schedule—but always treated with genuine care by our local hosts and virtually all of the service personnel we encountered. Japan is a land of many contrasts, beautifully reflected in the harmonies of rest and rush we experienced in Tokyo and Kyoto. As an independent vacation, our 10-night program combined the best of modern amenities and the serenity of ancient traditions.

Monograms Independent Tours – Rome, Florence & Venice – View the entire itinerary

On May 1, my wife Susan and I flew out from Houston on Air Express, arriving in Rome early the next morning. After going through Customs, we took a cab to our hotel, the NH Leonardo da Vinci. Just to show you what a great start this was, look at the view from our window (the sunset and the beautiful neighborhood houses). Our Local Host, Renata, was available for questions and recommendations. We stored our bags until check-in time. That afternoon Renata reminded us of the schedule, and that the coach would leave at 8.
