Best viewed from the river.

On a hot August day, to climb up to these toombs would really have been exhausting. To see them in their full splendor, just take a trip down the river.

The tombs look lovely lit up at night, sat by the river with a cold drink! There is a lot of history and your able to take a trip up the mountain to see them close up. A lovely view from a far was enough for me.

Take a small boat tour and visit tombs, it'll totally worth it! It's such a special place for me, there is also Turkish song about Dalyan Delta which is called "Dalyan Deltası" by Bülent Ortaçgil. You can enjoy the view in the small boat listening that song :)

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.
