Very useful guide Nov 17, 2006
The guide is very complete almost every relevant town in Turkey has a description.
The history glimpse is very interesting. The descriptions of hotels and places to eat is very helpfull. The taste of the author is low cost oriented, my wife and me we had to choose from high price hotels.
The guide should be improved with a more extensive description of important places museum and arqueological sites. This is important because tourism in Turkey is very undeveloped and there are not maps and descriptions of what are you viewing. Apparently, there is an agreement between government and local vendors in order not to provide maps or good descriptions in order to force tourist to buy booklets or hire guides. When you visit 2 or three places a day this may be unafordable.
Additionaly, the guide can be improved more clearly with what you have to see in each place, as the stars in Michelin guide.
Maps are difficult to read, they have small dark grey numbers over a light grey. Also when you read about a feature in the text, you have to find it in the legend to get a number to find it in the map.
