About this tour

Embark on a fascinating journey to Göbeklitepe, an ancient city dating back to 9000 BC to 10500 BC, predating Stonehenge by 6,000 years and rewriting the narrative of advanced civilizations. This private tour offers an exclusive exploration of the region, providing firsthand insights into the ongoing excavation at the site.

The adventure begins with an early morning hotel pickup, followed by a 2-hour flight to Şanlıurfa, formerly known as Edessa—a historically significant holy place. Göbeklitepe’s discovery has reshaped our understanding of ancient civilizations, and you’ll witness this groundbreaking evidence firsthand. Upon arrival, your guide will lead you to Göbeklitepe, where the astonishing architecture, crafted with stone tools 10,000 years ago, awaits your discovery.

After a captivating visit to the excavation site, return to Şanlıurfa for a delightful lunch at a local restaurant, savoring the flavors of southeastern Turkey. The journey continues with a visit to the Şanlıurfa Archaeological Museum, a monumental space offering an immersive experience of the region’s biblical history. Nestled close to the sacred pool, this museum stands as one of Turkey’s largest, featuring a restaurant, library, market, and a playground for children.

Next on the itinerary is Abraham Lake, steeped in legend. According to the tale, Abraham faced death in a pyre constructed by King Nimrod, only to witness a miraculous transformation of flames into water and logs into fish.

As the day concludes, you’ll be transferred to Şanlıurfa airport for your return flight to Istanbul. Upon arrival, our representative will be waiting to escort you to your hotel, marking the end of an extraordinary journey through time and history.
