Recently G Adventures own Jon T. ventured to Turkey to experience as much of the stunning scenery and fascinating history as possible in a week on The Best of Turkey tour. Here's just some of the pics he snapped along the way.

Little Hagia Sophia (Turkish: Küçuk Ayasofya Camii), is a former Eastern Orthodox church dedicated to Saints Sergius and Bacchus in Constantinople, converted into a mosque during the Ottoman Empire.

The Basilica Cistern (Turkish: Yerebatan Sarayı - "Sunken Palace", or Yerebatan Sarnıcı - "Sunken Cistern"), is the largest of several hundred ancient cisterns that lie beneath the city of Istanbul.

Prayer time in Selcuk.
