Very pleasant/relaxing tour to Ephesus - Nizam, the tour guide knew his material and was good at engaging all tour guests. If you're short on time or just want to understand a little more history, I would definitely recommend this tour. The only thing I would cut out would be the fashion show/factory tours.
