Overview

The Dalyan Delta is home to natural wonders, fascinating historic sites, and rare wildlife, and this full-day tour from Fethiye checks off all three. Cruise down the Dalyan Delta, admire the ancient Lycian tombs of Kaunos, bathe in a mineral-rich mud bath, and spot giant Caretta Caretta sea turtles. Hotel pickup and lunch is included.
  • Full-day Dalyan cruise, Kaunos, and Iztuzu Beach from Fethiye
  • Soak up the scenery on a riverboat cruise around the Dalyan Delta
  • Bathe in the mineral-rich mud baths of the Dalyan River
  • Admire the Lycian tombs of ancient Kaunos
  • Great-value tour includes hotel pick-up, lunch, and round-trip transport
Your tour begins with pick-up from your central Fethiye hotel in time for an 8.30am departure. Traveling aboard an air-conditioned bus, set out on the around 1-hour journey to Dalyan.

On arrival, hop aboard a water taxi for a scenic cruise along the Dalyan River and explore the natural wonders of the Dalyan Delta. The first stop is at the natural mud bathes, where you’ll have chance to bathe in the mineral-rich mud pools and thermal baths, renowned for their healing properties.

After a rejuvenating soak, re-fuel with a delicious buffet lunch by the riverside before continuing along the delta. Stop to admire the ruins of ancient Kaunos, with its remarkably preserved Greek theater and ancient Lycian tombs, carved high in the cliff sides.

Continue to İztuzu Beach, at the mouth of the Dalyan River, where you can stroll the sandy spit and perhaps spot loggerhead (caretta caretta) turtles in their natural environment. Enjoy some free time to enjoy the beach or take a swim before cruising back to Dalyan city, where your driver will be waiting for you.

Back in Fethiye, your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.

When we booked this it stated infant up to 6 free there were no exclusions on food stated however we was then told on the trip that his food was not included and we had to pay it wasn't a lot although I think this should of been stated on the exclusions at time of booking. Also they then asked for an extra 3 lira per person to enter turtle beach to use toilets and shower again not a massive deal but should also be stated at time of booking on the exclusions to be more prepared. Apart from that the trip was ok but beware there is very little chance on seeing turtles we just about managed one but was very faint under the water and on the river side and not in the sea. They also try to get you to buy crab saying it entices the turtles but it doesn't in fact the fish enjoy it more. The mud bath was ok but very smelly I could not go in the smell was too bad.

Picked up at hotel ... Loved the boat trip and the mud baths but we could have done with longer there. On the way there on the coach the guide said we would possibly stop to see big turtles, medium turtles and little turtles .... So thought oh this is great and he talked about feeding them crabs ... Anyway we went on boat trip and saw the tombs etc was great ... And half way there the guide who had his grand daughter with him ... She was lying on the table on the boat and fell asleep and he put his head down and also fell asleep for what must have been half an hour and he didn't waken until we got to turtle beach .... When someone from the group said they thought we were stopping to see the turtles on the way ... He made some comment about new laws and said I will explain once we come back from the beach ..... We spent a short time on the beach and on arriving back at the boat he told us the law had just changed the week before and we weren't allowed to stop and see turtles or feed crabs ... Maybe this is true but we felt that he had fallen asleep and therefore the reason why we didn't stop ... Why tell us about seeing turtles and what the schedule was when it wasn't going to happen ... Not happy

Very very good! A brilliant experience, that was made better with the incredibly informative tour guide. The professional photographer was great as you didn't have to tak your own camera with the risk of ruining it; you could also buy the photos on a CD too. I would recommend to anyone interested.
