"It was a pleasure to be in the care of Char in Sicily and Malta. She had thoughtfully and skillfully planned the places we stayed and the local guides down to the last details. Each meal we had was better than the last with fresh whole foods and fish caught earlier that day, and unique wine fit for the goddesses our small group felt like! Small is definitely better!" - Cari Dawson, Portland, OR
"I had the pleasure of taking one of her tours, the Sicilian Odyssey, in October 2015. It may be a cliché to call this a trip of a lifetime, but for me, it was. It was a Goddess Tour, a Yoga Retreat, and an Ecotour, capturing the essence of each of these modes of travel, and indeed, embracing life in living, loving, and giving ways.
My travel companions were as amazing as Char was, and we all formed an immediate, solid, life-long bond. No surprise, since the odyssey was life-changing in beautiful ways.
Charlene researched every aspect of our tour to perfection, and it provided a dazzling array of out-of-this-world food and wine, prepared locally, organically, and seasonally. We toured ancient sites, such as Agrigento, Cefalu and small mountain villages, such as Castelbuono and Sant Ambrogio. We spent 7 days at a breathtaking villa very near Sant Ambrogio, using this incredibly lovely, comfortable home as our home base in Sicily.
Charlene had planned such an amazing experience, and every detail was perfectly researched, and each activity was a perfect complement to the next. I, along with my tourmates, felt at such ease with Charlene, that I’m sure we will all meet again on future tours with Charlene Selsvold and BlueBee Odysseys." Leslie Campbell, San Diego, CA
