Fantastic site in beautiful location. hard to imagine how they were ever built in their time. The Dalyan river which you navigate to pass the tombs is huge with breath taking views all around.

A beautiful sight, which can be seen on th Dalyan River Cruise. The guides are very informative and speak good English, so you can fully understand the history of the tombs! Definitely, worth a visit!

A river cruise is the best way to see the tombs. We did this as part of a trip with Tomas Cook. Do your research first as the guide we had was not at all knowledgeable.

To lie on a sun lounger on a deck by the river, in the sunshine with this view as the backdrop is a fantastic experience. How these were made boggles the mind. This beautiful mountain site overlooks Dalyan and the river, picturesque and ancient, it’s...More

We stayed opposite this site and felt we had to visit - well worth the trek - would have lked to get closer but they remain special because we were unsuccessful. On a par with Stonehenge and the 'I wonder' question

It was lovely to see how these beautiful tombs were built along the river and viewing them from the river boat.

This is an absolute must visit place in Turkey! You spend time in a nature protected area, the delta of Dalyan/Dalaman. You will for sure see awesome Turtles and feel the powerful energy of past times.

You can only see these tombs from the river, I believe...you can't get much closer. Boats from Dalyman past the tombs are every 10 minutes or so, and will stop by the tombs for photos before continuing to the beach.

Not sure if the new tourist site is open yet. You can view from Dalyan or from the riverside. Buggy would probably be a no im afraid. Check out on google. Dalyan and Lycian Rock Tombs.
