I thought this would be a pamphlet but is just a laminated foldout. The picture detail is good but buying one of these for each of the main sights in Istanbul would approximate the cost of a entire guidebook. A guidebook would lack the nice foldout picture but would offer so much more information while also detailing the same points made in this item.

We bought several of these pamphlets for our trip to Istanbul last summer. Although they are convenient to carry while touring and provide a nice quick overview of each venue, the text is frustratingly brief. I always ended up bringing out the Eyewitness Travel or Rick Steves guides (both of which were quite good, and complement each other) for more detail.

I purchased this manuscript on a whim before our June, 2012 trip to Istanbul. I will say that it has amazingly realistic details about the church and it provides extrememe detail. This is well worth purchasing as a Guide and then as a memento as you go down Memory Lane in the future.

Perhaps it was because I went on a tour so it didn't add much, but in general it is good to have a small summary of a major attraction to bring instead of large tour book.
