Full-Day Dalyan Discovery Tour from Bodrum

Enjoy a relaxing full-day tour of Dalyan on Turkey’s Lycian coast, sailing by boat across the turquoise sea to Turtle Beach.

Founded around the 9th century BC on the border of the Kingdom of Lycia, Kaunos became an important Carian city by 400 BC and its culture reflected aspects of both kingdoms. The tombs were designated for the kings and other powerful persons, and filled with food, money, jewelry, and other valuable items. Marvel at the Dalyan Canal as it weaves its way from Köyceğiz Lake to the beach, a peninsula jutting out from the mainland.

It is out of bounds to the public from May through September. Experience a mud bath for an indulgent and therapeutic treat before your return transfer to Bodrum.

Nice introduction to rural life in Turkey.

It was very cool. Good food. Away from busy and super-warm Bodrum. Good guidance from a young student. Only downside: we had booked for another day, because we were the only bookers at the time, the trip was canceled. Outing shifted by 2 days.

Great tour, we had a lot of fun. We saw many interesting places apart from the other tours and the guide was also great. Gladly again, thank you!

Super guide super organization, however we were rushed all day. And 30min for lunch. And the driver drives like crazy.

Very nice and experienced tour guide, was really a lot of fun…. We can only recommend it!

this is a very well worth day trip, with breathtaking views.
