An easy read full of helpful advice and suggestions. Everything from where to stay to where to eat. Makes a good combination when used alongside trip advisor. Would have liked a little more pictorial input.

Good, accessible and largely reliable. However, only a numb-tongue gourmet would "rank Turkish food along with French and Chinese" and Richardson is unwise to present an incompetent spiv of a restaurateur as a good old boy. There seems no mention of the market for Iznik (decorated and sometimes extraordinary pottery made mostly from quartz).

I have a set routine now for buying holiday guides. 1. Perusing them in Waterstones and W H Smiths when choosing a holiday 2. Purchasing the Insight guides just after booking. These have superb colour photos and maps. 3. Purchasing a Rough Guide shortly before the holiday. The amount of detailed information in the Rough Guides is almost overwhelming. Fortunately, the organisation and presentation is always excellent and this one is no exception. It is easy and enjoyable to read. I had very little knowledge of Istanbul but the Rough Guide is making me feel I now know it quite well. Looking forward to our 5 day holiday there in September.

The book was quite helpful for us when we visited Istanbul. It was a lovely vacation and I think I will go back again, n use this book again.
