Overall, I highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in ancient history and culture. And if you're lucky enough to have Gizem as your guide, you're in for a treat. She's truly a remarkable guide who goes above and beyond to ensure a memorable experience for all.

Despite the long journey, my dauther remained engaged and fascinated by Engin's storytelling, and my wife and I were equally captivated. We were also impressed by Engin's patience and attentiveness, as he made sure that our needs were met and that we were comfortable throughout the journey.

Gizem was knowledgeable and passionate about the history and culture of Göbeklitepe, and her enthusiasm was contagious. She made sure to explain the significance of every artifact and structure we encountered, painting a vivid picture of what life was like in ancient times.

I recently went on a tour to Göbeklitepe from Istanbul with my dear grandchildren of 2 and my elder son, and I must say, it was an experience of a lifetime. Our guide, Engin, was a true gem who made our journey both educational and entertaining.smiley
