Mysterious atmosphere - cool, damp, quiet. Would have liked some audio and/or video commentary to bring the history to mind while we were there. Difficult for us to take good available light photos due to very dim lighting. Glad we have this guide for a better record of what we saw. Had fun getting photos as sultan & partner in the costume photo booth in the corner.

Very interesting and informative pamphlet with beautiful photos. The pages are laminated and very high quality. I enjoyed it very much. My granddaughter and I visited Istanbul in August 2015 but did not see this place. I would rather have seen it than the Hagia Sophia, which we did see.

One cannot be prepared for the awesome feeling when going down into the Basilica Cistern. It is simply a grand experience to see one of these water storage areas. And yes, there is still water in it!

This brochure gives a fast but thorough background with great diagrams and photographs for this major site in Turkey. Make sure you have one or insist that your tour guide distributes them.
