    We are really sad that we haven’t been to this gorgeous country before. My wife and I traveled to many countries, but I have never felt the same feeling before. All the religions are living together in this country, in every corner you can see and feel the historical buildings with their fantastic history. Thanks to Mr. Erdogan who helped me to arrange our Turkey tour. Everything has organized well by the Toursce family. We need to thank you again for your advice us to stay for 2 days in Sanliurfa.

    it was very nice to visit the Gobeklitepe which are the world’s first temple and the agricultural establishment 10,000 BC and 12,000 years before today. The museum is great, the short films and location are very informative. An important archaeological site. The Gobeklitepe site is very well organized with a boardwalk and other travelers’ facilities. The actual archaeological site is very good presented with protective roofing and a boardwalk that allows visitors to walk all around. Intriguing and great place, this is where life began after the big floods and agriculture spread the planet from here. if you are in Turkey and if you have the time it is a must-see. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about Gobelitepe and around Sanliurfa. Thank you very much.

    I was always curious about Gobeklitepe. But I could not find a company that made a tour here. I am very lucky to have found you on the advice of my friend. This daily tour my highlight of Turkey vacation. Gobeklitepe is the location of an over 12000 years old gathering place of humans which has changed the entire concept of what and why human beings did what we know back then. The museum buildings and the audiovisual effects within those buildings are very well done and the actual site of the digs is even more fascinating and the view from atop the small hills is beautiful in Sanliurfa. I will come and stay longer in Sanliurfa and explore around Gobeklitepe, Sanliurfa city, and Harran. Don’t leave without a visit to Gobeklitepe when in Turkey. Thank you guys for organizing the best tour for me.

    Best tour to Gobeklitepe from Istanbul. We have traveled to Sanliurfa in South-Eastern Turkey with ToursCE tourism to visiting the Gobeklitepe. We have been on our tailor-made tour program organized by Zehra. The program covered what we need in a short time for 2 days and 1 night. We had the opportunity to understand the historical and cultural heritage dating back to 10,000 BC from two expert archaeologist-guides, interact with the locals, taste the delicious local food, and shop authentic products. Beehive houses of Harran are so unique for us. Every detail of the trip was very well arranged and professional. we have returned with great memories. Thank you ToursCE Travel!
