Went over to the other side of the river to get a closer look at rock tombs. Well worth seeing. I didn't like going on the tiny rowing boat as it rocks when you get on & off.

You can't get into the Rock tombs because they are carved amazingly in the sheer cliff face, but you can get close and enjoy a fun cheap trip. Opposite the tombs on the Dalyan side of the river is a small rowing boat pier. This is the local ferry. It costs 5lira return and you get rowed across to one... More

We took a river cruise which culminated in a view of the tombs, they are a fantastic relic of their age but are best seen through a camera zoom lens or binoculars as they are high up on the cliff side and not accessible. The tour guides on the river cruises give a good account of the known history of... More

Good view from across the river, nice resaurant below tombs, lights up at night so looks very good for photos etc. The boats to turtle beach go along the river so you go past the tombs, so take some photos

Visited on a boat trip, and were treated to beautiful views of the tombs. The history was fascinating, as our tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly.

Incredible to be able to sunbathe or sit quietly and look at the tombs and thinking of their history

I can't believe how we just walk around with these feats of engineering that would defy modern day efforts just being there. Wherever we go, they are there and have been for longer than we can even imagine and will still be there when everone on this planet has been replaced by new people, over and over again. Awesome just... More

If you in area you must come see. Best way is by boat. When you round then bend and stop in the bay you will be amazed. It will make you say out loud woooww. Then you ask yourself the question how the hell did they do that. I'll leave it at that for you. On other bank is all... More

We (3 people) hired a small boat for a total of 60 Turkish Lira, which took as along the river to see the Rock Tombs, which were very impressive. It also dropped us off at a small jetty so that we could visit an archaeological site, which was about 1km from the jetty. the admission fee was 10 Turkish Lira... More
