Dalyan and Ancient Caunos Adventure

Gorgeous scenery is the theme of this Marmaris excursion. The charming Dalyan village awaits your arrival, where a motorboat is ready to cruise you down winding canals to the archaeological site of Caunos. Abundant vegetation, colorful fauna, and historic sites make this Marmaris tour an experience you don't want to miss.

Drive through rich pine forests and orange and cotton plantations to the delightful Dalyan village. The center of the village has a few notable landmarks, such as the Caretta Caretta monument and a unique mosque. The lush scenery native to the area is protected to allow the growth of vegetation and fauna. A snapshot in any direction would be enough to capture a stunning nature shot.

The highlight of your Marmaris tour is the boat trip down the Dalyan River. Board a motorboat and drift down beautiful winding canals, passing through mazes of reeds on your way to Caunos, a popular archaeological site. As you travel down the river, you'll see the famous temple-tombs of ancient kings carved into the rocky cliffs.

Once in Caunos, check out the Roman Theater, Roman Bath, and the historic streets dating back to the 5th century B.C. Once this portion of your tour is complete, enjoy a motorboat trip back to the village and a drive back to port. Book this Marmaris tour today for a scenic Turkey excursion you won't forget.
