I will not able to give 5 stars because you can not go up hill and walk inside the tombs since the entrance is closed. Maybe someone can give us a tip about how to climb up there but that will be illegal. I managed...More

A clear view can be got from most of Dalyan and it is one that I never get used to or bored of! The closer, the better! On land or by sea.... they are absolutely fascinating!

You can only view from a distance, but the views are free. Best seen from the river on one of the many boat trips you can make in Dalyan and many restaurants overlook the stunning carved tombs.

These tombs tower over the village and can be seen from so many angles. They are amazing and just make you feel like you are holidaying in the middle of an ancient civilization. What an awesome backdrop!

You can only see these tombs from the river, I believe...you can't get much closer. Boats from Dalyman past the tombs are every 10 minutes or so, and will stop by the tombs for photos before continuing to the beach.

Not sure if the new tourist site is open yet. You can view from Dalyan or from the riverside. Buggy would probably be a no im afraid. Check out on google. Dalyan and Lycian Rock Tombs.
