16Well, I am back sooner than I expected. A friend who visited Turkey last fall was raving about Dalyan, so we have decided to stay there instead of Eski Foca. I found a great hotel right on the river, with views of the Lycean tombs, so that looks like fun! I know I'm spending a lot of time in one area (Patara, Dalyan, Datca) but each town seems to offer a different sort of experience.
From Dalyan we'll go to Datca, and from there to Ayvalik. My question: will we be able to travel by bus from Datca to Ayvalik in one day? It seems to be quite a long stretch. I did find a hotel near both the bus and ferry in Ayvalik, so we could stay overnight and then go to Lesvos the next day.
As always, I appreciate your help!

17Yes... it is possible in a very long day.2 choices-
A.)Night bus at 23.59 arrive Izmir 06.15 ,then time for some breakfast whilst you wait for the Sebat Turizm bus at 08.00
B.)The later bus at 11.15 arrive Izmir 18.00,then time for a cuppa then take the 19.30 Sebat bus as listed above.
I guess the night bus makes good use of otherwise dead time and saves you a nights hotel fee :) but it depends on if you can sleep okay or not.In fairness buses here are comfortable... but they aren't Rolls Royces.Otherwise perhaps break it up with a stop over in Izmir.

18I'm not sure we could sleep on a bus, although I have heard that Turkish buses are very comfortable. So it looks like the 11:15 bus would be best for us. I appreciate the links to the bus schedules and will check them as we get nearer to September to see if changes have been made.
Thanks again for your help!

19Good idea,especially for the Datça to Izmir section.I would expect there to be more services during the summer.Also check Metro Turizm web site too to see if they have other services.When I looked there was nothing suitable but summer...maybe so.
