We done Dalaman to Altinkum and return this past two weeks, have to say was dreading the journey but it was fab, enjoyed every minute of seeing the countryside. The journey went fast and we had a good driver, comfort stops etc. I don't know if it would have been so nice at night time as both our journeys were daytime. Would have no hesitation doing it again. Don't let the long journey put you off, its not horrendous.
For a moment I thought the scousers had lost their sense of humour.
I done to Dalaman last week by dolmus,it was quite good.
Dolmus to Milas park,then to Mugla,then to Ortaca and taxi from Ortaca it was less then £20 in total and beautiful scenery all the way.
