The four hour 'Istanbul Uncovered' walking tour was inspiring. Like some other recent visitors, I was lucky enough to have a guide, Salih, to myself. He was informed, engaging, intelligent and great company. Couldn't have been better.More

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
