These tombs are viewable from the city and along the walk to Kaunos. While you can't go right up to them, they are photogenic and especially so at night when they are lit up.

If you can go on the Jeep Safari (an absolute must) you get to hear about some of the history of these so can combine.

These can be viewed from Dalyan but are better seen from one of the boats. In the evening they are lit up and can be seen clearly from some of the riverside restaurants and bars.

Every spot of Anatolia has its deep history and this is one of those magnificent, charming spots. You get so surprised with the ability of ancient Likya people.. Don't miss it!!

I saw them when I was in Dalyan. But you can see them in whole are; such as in Fethiye, Kekova, Kas etc. They look so impresive, they are almost 2000 years old.

Very interesting but do your research yourself, most of the locals don't know the history of them so end up giving you wrong info
