You easily can tour on your own provided you have a good guidebook with you. Many on this forum like the DK Eyewitness series. I personally love the Rick Steves' Istanbul guidebook, actually written by two local guides. It contains lots of practical transportation information as well as great walking tours and tours of specific sites. Note that for hotels and restaurant recommendations, this website is best.

Just use the normal common sense you would in any big city and you will be fine.
