I was fascinated by the tombs. I was aware of them before we got to Dyalan but could not find much information on them and there did not seen to be anyway of visiting them or getting up close unfortunately.

Very interesting but hot and does involve a trek if you are going and need a guide in my opinion do not use Oruc i found them over priced and the details do not match the history

Definitely worth a visit. Take a small boat to cross the river and walk closer to the tombs. So much history in such a little place

Beautiful and spectacular to look at. Shame you can't get near them. Mind you, if they end up covered in sprayed graffiti like the ones in Fethiye town perhaps it's better they remain at a distance.

We stayed in the Dalyan region of Turkey in Sep 2014. We were lucky enough to be able to see the tombs several times during the day and at night from both a boat and the opposite side of the river in bars and restaurants. I would say they are most impressive in the evening when they are floodlit. I... More

We saw the tombs via boat during an excursion to Dalyan, these are truly amazing and if you are lucky enough to have a good guide they will tell you all about the history of the tombs. The only shame is you can only really view them from afar, not a lot you can do about that unless you fancy... More

Went on a boat trip from Marmaris it was an amazing day. Went to turtle beach saw 2 turtles even out of season. Had a swim lovely and warm. Then a boat trip to mud baths. We saw the tombs took your breath away. £12 for a full day taxi to and from hotel and a cooked meal.

Went to see the tombs on a boat trip with our captain Yusuf, Kardak 6 (boat 6) on the way to turtle beach. To have a captain/guide with so much knowledge of the tombs was fantastic. Enjoyed the day trip so much, went later in the week on a moonlight cruise, when the tombs are floodlit. I can find no... More
