Alex and William both fell in love with Europe early in life. Urban life! Cafes! Culture! History! From Alex's studies in Spain and William's in Italy, both have been looking for a way to spend more time in Europe ever since.
The idea of handbell tours in Italy started with William's simple idea to take some of his friends who play handbells to meet some of his friends in Tuscany. That first trip, in 2009, started a series of biennial handbell and choral trips that eventually turned into Resonate Tours. Each trip, William and his Italian friends arranged new and interesting excursions, and people kept wanting to come on the tour again and again. Plus Italians love music, and especially handbells, which generally do not exist in Italy. Everyone on the tour loved sharing their art with the locals.
Resonate Tours grew out of our desire to share our love of both travel and music with our friends, to spend more time in Italy, and to eat more gelato!
