Tour description

Our free walking tour will be through the old town.
We will visit Balıklıgöl and Urfa fortress. Then we are going to see Fırfırlı and Salahaddin-i Eyyubi Mosque. Both mosques have been built hundreds of years ago and are quite authentic.
Then, we will walk for about 15 minutes to get to 58 square. 58 square is in the right middle of the old town and we'll see historical Urfa houses while we get there. In 58 square we'll get to see Regi Church which is also called Saint Petrus and Saint Paulus church. 

If you get hungry while walking around the old town of the Urfa we can have some delicious traditional Urfa food. Urfa is known for its kebaps and other delicious dishes that you can only find in this town.

Come on, book this funny and different tour with a local!

    I am going to be waiting right in front of the Ziraat Bankası. It is in the Topçu Square which most crowded place in Şanlıurfa so if you ask anyone how to get there they are most likely going to help you.

This was a very interesting tour. Fatih was really nice to do the tour only for me despite heavy rainfall. He shared a lot of interesting information and I could ask about anything I wanted. He also followed up after the tour by sending me advice for the rest of my trip in Turkey. Highly recommended!
