Journey to the ancient site of Caunos, home to an Hellenistic settlement.

Meet up with your local guide at the cruise ship pier before embarking on a journey southwards, towards the resort town of Dalyan. Here you will board your kayik (a local wooden boat with diesel motor) and travel to Caunos, an ancient site on the waters of the lake of Dalyan.

Dock at the pier of ancient Caunos, and disembark for a tour of the fascinating Hellenistic settlement that lies there. Explore the very well-preserved theater, as well as the impressive Byzantine Basilica.

After your tour of Caunos, return to your kayik for the ride back to Dalyan. Enjoy a delicious local lunch in a lovely lake-side restaurant, and then return to the the town for a visit to the local weaving school. Here you will have the opportunity to observe the local handicrafts, as well as chat with the locals.

Afterwards, you will be transferred back to Marmaris and your cruise ship.
