Departure Time

7:00 AM
The fun begins upon pickup by an air-conditioned coach from your central Bodrum hotel, and then set out for Dalyan. Peer out the window at Turkey’s dramatic coastal scenery for three hours, enjoying a light breakfast (own expense) along the way. 

Depart your coach bus upon arriving at the dazzling Dalyan River. This iconic river flows through a picturesque nature preserve. Here, hop on to a boat and cruise along its tranquil waters, admiring the idyllic setting. Whip out that camera as you watch for local wildlife, such as birds and river fish, and approach the Kings’ Tombs of Kaunos. Legend has it this sight was created in the 4th century BC, when tombs were carved into this mountainside by hand.

Next, sail to the Dalyan River delta and İztuzu Beach, which also goes by Turtle Beach, for the rare loggerhead turtles that frequent its shores. These endangered turtles visit this protected, 3-mile (4.8 km) sandbar every year to lay their eggs in burrows. Enjoy some time designated for walking the beach or swimming before continuing on to lunch. Refuel with a buffet of salads, main dish selections, fruits, and desserts (drinks are at your own expense). 

Soak yourself in Dalyan’s healing riverside mud bath and hot springs and mud baths. Then, board your bus and let the kick back on your ride back to Bodrum. Learn about one of Turkey’s most prided crafts, the carpet, during one last pit stop at a Turkish carpet center. Enjoy some light refreshments (own expense), then travel back to your hotel where your tour concludes. 

Please note: the exact order of these activities may vary.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Dalyan Nehri
Leave your centrally located Bodrum hotel in the early morning and travel by air-conditioned coach toward the riverside town of Dalyan. After roughly an hour, stop for breakfast (own expense) before setting off again. After around two more hours, arrive at the Dalyan River, a waterway that weaves through an idyllic conservation area. Board a sightseeing boat and glide along the peaceful channels, passing reed beds that are rich with birds and other wildlife. As you sail, take photos of the famous Kings’ Tombs of Kaunos. These tombs, carved directly into a cliff face, are believed to have been completed in around the 4th century BC and are musts for your photo album. Cruise into the Dalyan River delta and look for rare loggerhead turtles as you approach İztuzu Beach (also called Turtle Beach). These endangered turtles visit this protected, 3-mile (4.8km) sandbar every year to lay their eggs in burrows. At the beach, you can stroll, sunbathe or swim (weather permitting), and then continue your cruise to a riverside restaurant. Here, enjoy a delicious buffet lunch of salads, main dishes, desserts and fruits, with drinks available at your own expense. Next, cruise to Dalyan’s hot springs and mud baths on the riverbanks. Pull on your swimwear and cake yourself in the sticky mud from from head to toe. Dry off in the sun, shower down and then wade into the warm, sulphur pools. You’ll leave feeling wonderfully tingly and refreshed. Afterward, relax on your coach ride back to Bodrum. After a stop at a Turkish carpet center and a break for refreshments (own expense), your tour ends with a hotel drop-off. Please note: the order of activities as described above may be subject to change on the day of your tour.

Good but long

The actual experience was lovely- the mud baths were fun, the lunch was OK and the boat and scenery were stunning. The transfer time from Bodrum was nearly 4 hours though!!! We were told it would be around 90 mins. My children get very travel sick and 8 hrs of travelling in 1 day is too much in 33° heat. We also felt that, the unexpected extra stop offs for crab "to attract the turtles" (despite only receiving the crab after we'd left turtle beach where we saw no turtles) and the stop off at a wine cellar (not child friendly after a long day) were simply ways to get us to spend more money. Having said all that, the trip was very special and I would recommend to anyone staying nearer to Dalyan.

Fantastic trip!! The mud baths, tombs, river, beach, blue crab were all fantastic. But the two guides were what made the day. Particularly Aslan, who went above and beyond from the moment we met him! A must do!

ENCHANTE, EXPERIENCE TRES AGREABLE ET A REFAIRE SANS HESITATION ! Notre séjour à Bodrum s'est fort bien déroulé et nous avons apprécié toutes les excursions organisées par VIATOR que nous avons retenues en ligne depuis la France. Elles étaient très bien organisées, le guide dans le bus était à notre écoute et nous encadrait si besoin même durant l'excursion ; sans parler de la beauté des sites visités. (de plus tous les gestes barrières pour le covid étaient respectés) Nous avons séjourné du 5/9 au 13/9/2020 sans aucune craintes.
