Visit to Kilistra site was a wonderful experience for our family! We loved it!
Aug 2021
This was a magical experience for our family. The simple beauty of the ancient site of Kilistra and its rich historical significance for Christians and history buffs is definitely worth the trip. We had very easy communications with Selene agency and our tour guide, Mustafa was wonderful. His kindness and passion for the site as well its surroundings added to the spiritual experience, and we deeply enjoyed his company. Our meal was in a local restaurant in Konya and was very pleasant.
