    User freindly and comprehensive

    Istanbul can be an overwhelming place- and even though we were on a tour, we used Rick Steves' guide to enhance our journey. We especially enjoyed a restaurant recommendation (Ataturk ate here!) and the useful information on Topkapi Palace and the Blue Mosque.
