The coach was full of people so it is a really popular excursion. The guide was multilingual and on some strange frequency, but he was approachable and friendly that i wasnt bothered about his phoneline..to be fair he was funny at times.
sailing across the beautiful Lycian Coast along the Turquoise Sea was really relaxing and fun. Everybody was buying drinks and ordering the crab which seemed like some kind of luxury item.. Lunch was actually included, but there was no fuss if you wanted to eat and drink more.
Sailing along the coast was idyllic and the highlight was the rock cut tombs of the Kings of Kaunos founded in the 9th Century BC on the border of the Kingdom of Lycia. Sailing along the the Dalyan Canalo from Koycegiz Lake ti Iztuzu Beach was a gem, leading to the Mud Baths - which is why I actually booked the excursion. The mud is supposed to be really good for your skin because of its sulphuric qualities and I absolutely loved it. I met another guest who helped with what to do instead of bugging the guide or the souveneir photographers. There was mud, drying off, taking a dip, showering and a hot-tub. Then onto Iztuzu beach for swimming , sunbathing and relaxing.. It was a really fun and therapeutic day around other people who were friendly and like vacating. I would do this specific excursion again.

A brilliant day that the whole group enjoyed. Guide and captain were great and lunch very tasty. Mud bath smelly but we all had good fun, something different but really enjoyable.

This is an ALL DAY trip! First you board a big boat at the harbour: PLEASE BE AWARE -- NO OUTSIDE FOOD or DRINKS allowed: plan ahead and don't bother to bring them because they WILL be taken away from you, placed in a plastic bag wtih your name on it and given back to you I think when you switch boats to go to Turtle Beach or at the end of the day.
So you spend about 1/2 day on the big boat where there is a swimming stop and lunch. Also you might get asked if you would like to purchase the CRAB SNACK for 20TL: I did, but it was just OK, not amazing as was promoted. So will leave that up to you.
Once you board the small boat as is seen in the promo pics on Viator, you are first taken to Turtle Beach. NOTE: if you use a beach chair, you will be charged, and there is not always nice spots for putting out your towel on the beach, because it is all TURTLE PROPERTY!! Lol lol lol.....
After the beach, you will board your small boat for the trip up the river, where you will see the sites of the area, the old tombs get your zoom lens out!!! and then reach the spot for the mud baths. Go ahead and let the guy take your picture covered in mud and buy it later, because you cannot really take a camera to the location. The smelly sulfur springs is also worth a dip!
After that you are transported back to the big boat, where you can now snack and drink all the way back to port. If you are lucky, there might be some light entertainment on board: but I'm not sure it it is a regular feature.
HAVE AN AWESOME DAY: GO HAVE FUN!!!!

This was a well run trip. They moved 250 people like clockwork, from the buses to the large boats and later onto the smaller boats to go up the river. The only complaint I had was the mud bath. The tour operator told everyone to leave their things sitting on tables that other people were walking by. There wasn't a chance I was going to leave my money, passport, charge cards, phone and camera sitting out in the open with no one watching them. My husband and I carried our things to check out the mud bath and the only thing that came to mind was unsanitary, gross! The hot pool was about 15 feet by 20 feet and was full of disgusting things floating in it. Probably 1000 or more people go through this thing on any given day. That aside, the rest of the tour was very nice.
