You don't need to go with a tour operator. Walk to the main minibus station in Fethiye at the city center's mosque. Take the minibus for 11 Turkish Lira (one way). The journey is uncomfortable as it takes around 1 hour. Most probably you'll be standing the entire trip in the peak season. The minibus drops you at the entrance. Don't forget to ask about the last bus back to the city. You only need to buy/rent/bring water shoes. Some people buy helmets for some caution but it is not really necessary. Buy your ticket and start your beautiful hike. The water is very cold (I was there in August), but once you cross the main river, it becomes very refreshing. Lots of locals chill by the main stream. There is a rope across the main stream to help you cross in case the current is strong. There is no worry about heat as the gorge has lots of rocks and mountains that cover the walking path. Enjoy hiking between beautiful white and beige rocks, refreshing water and small caves. The hike is quite easy and doable by kids as well. I saw old people and children. I saw people in flip flops which not recommended. It is very unfortunate that some people throw their empty plastic water bottles in the river. Others smoke in the gorge while smoking which is disgusting as you smell it all over the place especially in the covered caves. By the end of the regular trail, there is a small waterfall with a rope. Climb at your own responsibility. it looks easy and some people do it. We decided to return back. Once you exit, there are lots of self-service restaurant. Buy your meal and sit at the tables by the river. The views are stunning. The meal was below average. There are lots of tubing activities but we didn't do any. Bathrooms are very clean and there are campsites.
