The guide was very knowledgeable, the presentation show was excellent, highly enjoyable - recommended
My husband and I love to incorporate a little history into our vacations and this one didn't disappoint. The original sight and replication of the oldest house on grand cayman. It was neat to learn the history of Grand Cayman and many of the workers there (tour guides) are direct descendants of either the family or slaves who lived there.... More
We found this on our last day in Cayman and decided to give a try. The history of this place is amazing and our tour guide was actually related to the original family!! It's on a cliff and the views are beautiful! So glad we took the tour, you learn a lot about the history of the islands.
We visited Pedro St. James with Captain Charlie, and toured this grand old house with a 7th generation Caymanian and descendant of the Eden family. I loved hearing our guide's stories about the house, his grandparents, the rebuilding of the estate and having him add color and life to the house and all of its tragedies and rebirths. If you're...

If your trip allows you time to step away from the beach, than Pedro St James is a nice place to get a little perspective on island living and some history of the Cayman people.

My fiancé and I visited Pedro St. James on a Saturday morning in September. We were greeted at the gift shop by a nice gentleman behind the counter. We were able to purchase our tickets from him for the Pedro St. James tour as well as the Queen Elizabeth II Botanical Gardens. The tour begins by watching a short 20... More

After visiting the displays of Cayman life in the 1930's through 1950's (interesting), we sat through a multi-media presentation on the history of Grand Cayman and the impact Pedro St. James had in the formation of Grand Cayman government. My husband and I were the only... More
It is hard to pull away from the fabulous beaches and warm sea, but it is well worthwhile hiring a car for the day and taking a tour around this beautiful island. Pedro St James allows you to see a different aspect to the Caymans where slavery was once commonplace. On first approach, the "castle" looks like an old fashioned... More
This is an excellent historic site and arguably the best value attraction on the island (only CI$8 per adult and kids under 12 are free). My daughter and I were the only ones there when we arrived towards the end of the day, and were treated to a personal guided tour by the great great great great (I think that's... More
It was an average place to visit if you have some time to kill. Nothing really special about it. There is also an exhibition near the entrance of other things that were also mildy interesting.
