Be aware that this is not a book to carry along to see the streets and sights of Istanbul. Rather, it has an in depth explanation of the history behind the key mosques and other buildings that are key attractions. Best to read it in your hotel at night, or before or after the trip. During the trip you surely don't want to spend your time reading voluminous material on each building rather than sightseeing.
The Moon Guide, in my experience, is the best carry along guide.

The book is very, very informative and easy to use. If you are interested in historical sites, there is no other travel guide that measures up to this. The one area in which the authors could improve the book is the selection of recommended restaurants; this section is slim, and given the amazing options available in Istanbul it could stand to be expanded. Even so, the internet will get you to most good eateries, so this book should fulfill its purpose as a historical guide to the city.

Useful if you have time to explore Istanbul on your own. and not just on a tour that plans virtually all your time.

By H. A. Drake on December 16, 2008
Format: Paperback
Like all Blue Guides, the Istanbul volume is a trove of information and especially valuable for its detailed information about sites of interest. It is however dated (1991, I think); there have been significant changes to the Archaeological Museum in particular. The organization (according to pre-selected routes) is not the way we do things, but the index made it easy to find the particular places we were looking for.
