We took one of the river boats that operate out of Ekincik and had a wonderful day. There was something for everyone - ancient ruins, magnificent views, mud bath, thermal pool, good restaurants, crab dinner direct from a crab boat, ancient tombs, charming village, cruising through the reed beds on the Dalyan delta. Our captain was especially good and went... More

Whilst on a Blue Cruise with V-GO, we visited the town of Dalyan. As the town is up a shallow river, you board a smaller vessel, which takes you from your gulet (Turkish cruise boat) into a lagoon and then around the wetlands of the river. It's a beautiful leisurely journey, with stops along the way. One is to see... More

I enjoyed the trip along the dalyan river I thought it was very interesting and me and my friends really enjoyed it, however it's a very long trip and very tiring I would recommend that everyone would take this trip at least once as it is a very good experience the scenery there is beautiful

Did a boat trip down the Dalyan river which included a cruise arund the area & visits to turtle beach, kings' tombs & the local mud baths & hot springs. Cannot recommend the area enough for its natural beauty, relaxing views & clean blue waters. If you are a swimmer then a dip (if the boat trip allows which they... More

The boat trip along the river was breathtaking, the views are out of this world but you are on the boat a very long time (4.5 hours) and once you arrive at turtle beach there is literally nothing to see. My advise is bring a book or some iPad or entertainment for kids and young teens as the trip is... More
