I really like eyewitness travel guides. I got the same book when I went to Rome 15 years ago. I am using it again on this trip.

Comments: (7)

I had never used this series of guidebooks before, so I did not know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised during my recent visit to Istanbul in June of 2007.

The main selling points of these DK guides are the superior maps and illustrations of tourist attractions. Major museums, mosques and palaces are shown in detail, with drawings and photos of the interior and exterior, as well as nicely illustrated historical tidbits. For doing the touristy things like visiting major attractions and taking pictures, this guide is great.

I am not sure how good this guide is when it comes to restaurants and nightlife. I did not explore that side of Istanbul as much, and what I saw did not impress me much.

Overall, I think I would have preferred a guide geared more towards active young people with a slightly cynical edge - this guide seemed to present everything as pretty and somewhat sterile. From what I saw, Istanbul definitely has an interesting culture that this guide did not fully capture.

Overall, good guidebook, and highly recommended. Read it ahead of time to know where the main sites and activities that interest you are located. Then do some more research online for good hotels to stay in - online reviews are more up to date.
Just returned from Turkey. Book was handy to carry and very accurate. Nice to know the hours and days that a destination is open and available to visit before you waste time getting there and find out it's closed. Maps were accurate and easy to follow. Comments were right on target. Saved us hours chasing around the city and allowed us to visit those important sites that are awesome.
I have previously bought DK guides of other places that we have visited, including Rome, Venice, Florence, Madrid, etc. They are truly mini-encyclopedias and well worth buying for an in-depth explanation of destinations. I am rating this guide of Istanbul in advance of our visit. The only negative I would note is that the DK guides pack so much information into their volumes by, among other things, using a font for their text that is VERY SMALL. (Yes, I am not a youngster and I do wear corrective lenses.) I don't know if they are available in a Kindle version. If so, that option or using an old-fashion magnifying glass may be necessary if your eyes, like mine, begin to tear at the sight of such fine print! I still recommend them for their in-depth contents. (I typically also purchase a Rick Steves guide, if available for the destination, to help me prioritize what to see.)
very good guide for the best city I have ever visited (92 cities in 18 countries). It provides good background information about all the sites and the best hotel I have ever stayed at in a foreign country was one of the recommendations of this book.
We went to Turkey and this book was the best guide for us. We had a very short time to get ready and this told us everything we needed to know. Culture, food and the way to dress in a Muslim country.Plus,the must see sights. Remember some Mosque and palaces are closed one day a week.
While Amazon my promote buying both, the guide to Turkey contains much the same information as the Guide to Istanbul. Istanbul at a Glance is slightly shorter in the Turkey guide, but the Turkey guide contains area by area descriptions, the Traveler's Needs and Survival Guide sections as well as street maps. The information is great, but I didn't need it twice.
Excellent guide to one of the world's most historic cities.
