Impressive site covering many occupations.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and helped us to appreciate the extent of the ruins. Especially liked the Lycian rock tombs.

It is a great place. I believe this place will be as popular as Ephesus in near future. If you are interested in history I strongly suggest this place.

These historical areas in Turkey are very interesting but not commercialised we went to Tlos as part of an organised trip which was very informative. Tlos has a church, baths, theater, sports arena, castle and tombs. There is a small charge to see the castle and tombs up close. There are a few cafes to get a drink / food... More

Loved the trip organised by Pioneer travels, the guide Yusuf was really informative. We were taken around the tombs in the mountains with amazing panoramic views.

We drove from Kalkan to see Tlos then Pinara and were so glad we did. We managed to find somewhere to stop (the only decent sized car park belongs to a restaurant - fine if you want to eat something). The site was almost deserted lateish afternoon. The ruins are interesting and the setting absolutely magnificent. It's a bit of... More

My favourite Lycian site is Pinara (see separate review) because its so remote and seldom visited by tourists. Tlos is much the opposite but no less impressive really. Easily reached by road from Kalkan or Fethiye and very much on the tourist visitor itinerary. Refreshments and loos available. Quite a climb up to the main fortress but well worth it... More

This was the second stop a a bus tour we did. Two seperate sites to this location. I chose to go up to the summit of the Fortress, and although it was extremly hot day,I climbed straight up- rather than follow the man made path- and was rewarded with some spectacular views and was able to get right up to...
