Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Istanbul EveryMan MapGuide (Everyman MapGuides) (Hardcover)
I purchased this on the strength of the previous, gushing reviews, I wish I hadn't. I would have given it zero stars but that's not an option.
6 main tourist areas of Istanbul are idenified and given a map, however even when these maps are unfolded they are less than A4 in size and have tourist information around them which makes the actual map even smaller. Features and streets on the maps are just big and slightly blurred, which gives the inpression that they've been blown up from a smaller version.
The whole reverse of each map is given over to a list of restaurants, which I suspect the real purpose of this guide is to advertise.
Having returned from a visit to this vibrant and fascinating city, I can confirm that this guide, in my opinion, did not relate well to what is actually there.
