About Us

About The Guide Istanbul 

Founded in 1991, The Guide Istanbul serves as the news source for the city’s happenings and an urban lifestyle magazine. From detailed advice about dining out, shopping, and cultural entertainment to Istanbul’s local talents in art, design and craftsmanship, The Guide Istanbul has been following one crucial principle in news delivery: recommend only the things we try and love. With more than 100,000 local and international readers reached with each issue in print (six times a year), and around the same number of unique monthly visitors online, we simplify the plethora of choices, focusing on the ones that stand for quality.  

Once a year in June, announcing the hottest months to come, the Guide Istanbul publishes The Guide Bodrum -- the ultimate guide to Turkey’s most popular holiday destination and places nearby.
