Istanbul was a wonderful surprise. The historic area is full of wonderful mosques, markets, restaurants and friendly people. We wished we had allowed long time to explore outside the old city ... maybe next year.

This is first time that I used Trip Adviser during a trip to Istanbul on the advise of my son.I found it extremely useful and handy.Best thing I found was its ability to work off line,so never get stranded,Trip Adviser is always there to help. Well done job by the Trip Adviser and keep updating all the new additions.I would recommend making it more simpler to use

So what was the historic area, the Grand Bazaar, totally for tourists it felt like. The spice bazaar was more exciting to me, so many things to eat, smell and simply taste. The people there were a lot pleasanter, and did not get in your face like in the Grand Bazaar.
The Mosques, buildings, all very old.
I liked having lunch at the Pudding shop...yummmmmmm
