Gobekletepe

I am reading about Gobekli Tepe and it blows my mind.
Is the site open for visitors?
How can I find a good local guide?
(I have seen other references to Gobekli Tepe on the forum, but they are a couple of years old and do not address these questions specifically).

Thanks so much to all my dear fellow travelers. This forum is awesome.

Yes, it is open. You'll probably need to take a taxi out of Urfa to visit it. It's not far - about 15km.

Thanks!
I shall have my rented car so I hope to be able to get there. It seems like one of the few places where I do need a guide, possibly a minor member of the archeological teem. Do you have any idea if and how is anybody like that available?

I think if no archaeologists are there, there's a caretaker/guard who can show you around.
