Departure Time

8:30 AM
Meet a driver at your hotel for 8:30am departure, then travel to the ancient city of Tlos, picturesque Lycian ruins set high on a hilltop that’s 22 miles (36 km.) from Fethiye.

Climb the hill to the acropolis, the highest point in the city, and earn panoramic views of the whole complex, including public baths, a large Roman stadium, and rock cut tombs carved into the mountainside.

Following your time at the Tlos ruins, continue to a nearby trout farm for lunch in a scenic arbor lined with comfortable couches.

After lunch, make the 20-minute trip to Saklikent National Park, entering the Saklikent Canyon on bridges that span the river. Walk between the steep, rock walls of the canyon to the river’s edge, then roll up your pants to walk across the current (if desired, you can remain at a café without crossing the river).

When you reach the opposite bank, continue through the canyon as the route narrows, then loop back to the starting point of the canyon walk. This 9-hour tour concludes with return transfer to your original departure point.

Tour guide historical knowledge was good and informative. The tour itself was good but not very organised, as a tour you expect to be given a timeframe to be back on the bus, this was left up to the people on the tour as to how long spent at each destination, which isn't ideal when have plans for the evening! We expected a tour of the ancient city, however all we got was a tour and guide on the bus on the way into the city, then it was off the bus and tour guide sat at a cafe while we went off to explore the ancient city, it would have been nice for him to walk us through and explain all about the city. The Gore was nice, nothing like the pictures and we were unable to cross the torrents to explore the waterfalls (other than paying extra for a guide to lead you across) the adventure in Saklikent Gorge was not what what I expected but that too would be due to the weather we had rainy and cold it would have been a better experience. Lunch at the trout farm was good absolutely amazing up in he hills and seeing the women making stacks of bread. The lunch was average but the fresh trout was nice, tour guide didn't really organise the lunch well which was disappointing. All in all weather being better the tour would have been much more enjoyable. Just expect a rug wholesale tour at the start which isn't mentioned in the tour (as I believe most tours include) this was interesting to see the rugs made by young women, but also sad to see them creating these rugs that they don't get compensated for... Then you spend time there if someone on the tour decides to buy a rug... very time consuming. It was a great way to see some sights but a long day that is not on a timeframe!

Thoroughly enjoyable, our guide...

Thoroughly enjoyable, our guide Kamil was informative, helpful and jocular, our driver Speedy was safe and smooth given that the mountain roads were quite potholed. There were activity's such as rafting, bungee jumping and zip lining for the more adventurous at the gorge which itself is quite breath-taking. For us the highlight though would have to be the ancient city of Tlos I think. Would recommend it to anyone considering going. Good value I'd say.
