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.

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

I really enjoyed the unique, wonderful, amazing view of the rock tombs from the river. We went in a boat and saw three sets of rock tombs!

These tombs were amazing to see from our riverboat tour and it was fascinating to learn about how they were made. Definitely worth the boat trip.

Although only seen from a passing riverboat, this is still an amazing sight and that's before you even start thinking about the how and why. Well worth travelling to see. I wish we could have got up close and personal, but it was not to be. Maybe next time...
