Embark on a journey to see and experience the rich culture, history and heritage of the Cayman Islands. With moderate climate through the year and a warm and welcoming local population, the Cayman Islands culture and heritage is a sight to behold. The Cayman Islands today are a mix of people from various regions of the world who have moved here and love to call the Islands their Home. Although the island has close historical and political connections to the United Kingdom, the culture and lifestyle of the Cayman Islands is strongly Americanized.
This tour starts with a guided tour to The Cayman Islands National Museum in George Town traces the islands’ seafaring history and will give our guests a better understanding of the history and culture of these 3 beautiful islands that together are known as the Cayman Islands. From here we continue the tour and pass through the George Town Post Office which was the first post office established in Cayman on 12th April 1889. We then drive past the Cayman Island Courthouse and continue our tour to arrive at the Governor’s Residence. At the Governor’s Residence, you can click pictures and sign the visitor’s log book. You never know who you might find in that book!
From here, we continue our tour to the Tortuga Rum Cake Factory and then to the iconic Pedro St James or Pedro Castle as the locals call it. At a time in the Cayman Islands when most people lived in tiny, thatch-covered houses, a wealthy Englishman, using slave labour from Jamaica, created an astonishing 3-storey building called Pedro St. James. Today, visitors can stroll through the imposing edifice with its period furniture and authentic artifacts to experience what life was like so long ago in Cayman’s history. There is also a 3 D multi-sensory presentation that happens at the Pedro Theatre which transports you into the lives of early settlers.
The tour ends with a stop for authentic Caymanian Lunch where you can savour some of the local delicacies. (Lunch is paid on own).
