You get a real sense of history with the Lycian Rock Tombs commanding a view across the town. The Dalyan river meanders from the sea, through expansive reed beds passing the town and onward to the inland lake. If you like history, geography and wildlife, this is a must do trip. You don't need to go on an organised trip... More

We went a boat trip to visit the tombs. The tombs were amazing and I've never seen anything like it. I'm so glad that the tombs are under conservation as this is a timeless piece of history.

Great information given on our trip on the Dalyan Canal where our boat took us up close, the tombs that dated back to the 4th century BC

This was part of a private boat trip and the tombs close up or as close as we could get are truly spectacular, it is these and the turtle beach that people come here for and you will not be sorry you did.

We love Dalyan and especially a walk along the river and past the rock tombs. Then at night when they are lit up is extra special. The really are an amazing sight

You just don't expect to see such antiquity right there in every day life, but there they are, spectacular and amazing. 3,000 years old, like the pyramids, you wander how in that era, did they manage to create such amazing structures. A must if you are in the area.

The Rock Tombs is a must to see. In the evening there are a few restaurants by the river where you can have your meal and see the tombs in the full splenda lit up.

Fabulous sight from the boat cruising along the river towards the amphitheatre. They tower over an oasis of calm.

What's not to like! We drove here via Köyceğiz on the D400 which takes you all around Lake Köyceğiz which was a long but very enjoyable drive and really enjoyed the visit. Also worth seeing is Kaunos just up the road. All in all a very enjoyable road trip. Spent some time in the little restaurant on the river as... More
