I had no idea how extensive Tlos was (hadn't heard of it before going to Turkey. Tombs back to the Lycians Greeks, Romans, Byzantines and others. Huge area or tombs, ruins and buildings. My tip - do it as part of a guided tour - the explanations from our tour guide made it much more special.

We really enjoyed going here. We went here as part of an excursion to Saklikent. I think we preferred the restaurant and the food rather than the ruins as it was so hot and there was no shade. We also had to pay the entrance fee when we had already paid £25 so make sure you check when you book... More

Extensive ruins of the ancient town - quite astonishing to see the scale of the buildings. Well worth a trip.

Visited on a tour from Calis. It was a VERY hot day so the allocated time was ample. This is an impressive ancient city situated on a hill with mountain views all around. Worth walking to the top.

This is a great place to visit. If you go to the bus stop by the mosque in Fethiye ask the "MAN" Who will direct you to a Dolmus which is destined for Saklikent, this will stop at Tlos. This way you are not being charged by one of the tour operators.TLOS which is an ancient city from the bronze... More

We only had 45 mınutes as we were on a tour. We asked to visit this as they only plan for a photo stop. The entry fee is worth it to explore the neocropolis and climb up the citadel. I am sure all the other sections are also worth exploring and I'm glad we had the chance to stop.

Visited as part of a jeep safari. The views are amazing and well worth the visit. Would have been great if we had been able to get nearer. Recommend going in the morning as it gets very hot
