About the tour

Archaeologically categorised as a site of the Pre-Pottery Neolithic A Period (c. 9600–7300 BC) Göbeklitepe is a series of mainly circular and oval-shaped structures set on the top of a hill. Excavations began in 1995 by Prof. Klaus Schmidt with the help of the German Archeological Institute. There is archelological proof that these installations were not used for domestic use, but predominantly for ritual or religous purposes. Subsequently it became apparent that Gobeklitepe consists of not only one, but many of such stone age temples. Furthermore, both excavations and geo magnetic results revealed that there are at least 20 installations, which in archeological terms can be called a temple. Based on what has been unearthed so far, the pattern principle seems to be that there are two huge monumental pillars in the center of each installation, surrounded by enclosures and walls, featuring more pillars in those set-ups

Erhan had reached out to me for tour of his beloved city of Sanliurfa.

Initially, I was hesitant to respond as he did not have any reviews, but I messaged him anyway with what I wanted to see and we then exchanged emails, Facebook, numbers, as he seemed like decent guy and he was an official tour guide.

So I then agreed to book him for the Sanliurfa part of my tour, and I don’t regret it.

Erhan was a fantastic tour guide I could not have asked for a better guide in Sanliurfa. I was very lucky to have him as my guide in Sanliurfa, that I will be going back to Sanliurfa at some point to explore more of the region with him.

He showed me what true Turkish hospitality is, he met me at my hotel in the morning. He is very kind man and we instantly connected and he is very funny. I even got to meet his lovely wife Nilgun over lunch and they took me around Sanliurfa, Gobeklitepe - the oldest temple in the world and also to the beehive houses of Harran, I also got with special access to castle in Sanliurfa which is closed to the public.

He even went out of his way and helped with the rest of my trip, with recommendations and contacted me to see if I arrive to my next destination safely, etc.

Not only did I have a fantastic tour, but I now have a dear and sister I can visit when I’m in Sanliurfa.

Thank you so much Erhan Abi and Nilgun Abla
