Speaking Of Us

Endless Beginnings

Endless Beginnings is a USA based tour operator that arranges itineraries in Italy and France. Our primary focus has always been tailor-made arrangements, services and itineraries, for individuals, small groups, travel agents and/or travel agencies, companies and museums, as well as programs for art, food, wine, opera and garden clubs. Over 97% of all arrangements organized are customized and more than 90% of our business is repeat or referral from returning clients. It's a record of which we are justifiably proud!

Operating in the USA since 1984, Endless Beginnings continues to focus on Italy and France. We have not only been recognized by Condé Nast Traveler as one of the top five travel specialist in the world for Italy but also selected by Bon Appétit to serve on their Epicurean Travel Consultant Board. Our attention to details coupled with our desire for our customers to have an experience of a lifetime has remained steadfast. To us, every arrangement is special; we are always striving to capture the essence of your dreams, transforming them into a reality, dreams limited only by your budget and our imagination!

What is the Endless Beginnings Difference?

The Endless Beginnings difference begins from the moment you begin your travel planning. Our tour consultants have traveled extensively throughout Italy and France and will bring this expertise to you as a partner who will work closely with you to to find that perfect journey with your tastes, style and budget in mind. Our focus is to deliver a holiday that is unforgettable and memorable, with service and quality that is everything you expect, and more. We get it right the first time because our goal is for you to return to Endless Beginnings next time - whenever the "road less traveled" calls.

We specialize in journeys so unique and special that they garner attention from agents and clients from around the world. Our award-winning services are testimony to our dedication to deliver an exclusive experience that no other tour operator can match. We deliver incredible, private journeys that promise the ultimate bragging rights for you back home. Additionally, because of our almost four decades of personal and professional partnerships with European providers, we are able to not only offer our clients premium value for these indelible experiences but also the opportunity to savor them in a highly personalized manner.

No group tours, no throngs of camera-clicking tourists - just private excursions with experienced guides or university-trained experts who come from the region and have a genuine pride and passion for their country. You can rest assured that your choices will carry the highest recommendation from Endless Beginnings. The "luxury" label is too easily afforded these days - and we think that no matter what your budget - the traveler deserves and should expect value for money.

Our Philosophy:

The focus of the Endless Beginnings business is custom-made itineraries. We don’t do set departure programs where, "if it’s Tuesday then this must be Florence". We excel at developing itineraries from scratch specifically tuned to your individual requirements.

Special Needs:

We’ve assisted with clients that required wheelchairs, used special breathing apparatuses, and had other medical needs. Whatever the situation, we can usually work it out given advance notice.

Our Staff:

For over 50 years and several hundred personal trips through Italy and France, we have experienced both countries in every possible aspect ~ first, as backpacking college students studying art history and, ultimately, experiencing the kind of luxury that only 5* hotels and private venues can offer. We have traveled single and married, with and without children, alone and with groups, behind the wheel of our own cars over the autostradas and back roads, in the front of the tour bus as tour manager and by train, crisscrossing both countries. Additionally, we travel at least once a year to one or more of the destinations we market and regularly meet with our suppliers, colleagues and government tourism officials. This is part of our ongoing training resulting in a motivated and dedicated staff that loves what they do.
