Trish as our tour guide was so knowledgeable and hilarious that myself and my wife & 3 daughters visiting from Ireland were totally immersed in the history of Pedro St James and its importance to Cayman. I would highly recommend this tour!

Great way to start your island visit with a bit of history!! Enjoyed it tremendously! Starts out with a movie/stage area that depicts the early life and then move on to the beautiful house and grounds.
