Best Tour to Learn the History of the Island

My husband and I love history and enjoy stories and antedotes about the places we visit. We are coming in on a cruise ship and most of the excursions seem to skip by some really interesting places. Is there a local tour that is recommended would give us information about the Island? We like an occasional ghost story as well, but won't be around in the later hours.

A stop at the Cayman Islands Museum in George Town and a visit to the Pedro St. James "Castle" in Savannah are two solid options.

Google and do some reading about it before you go and then you can appreciate the history of the spots you are seeing. It is a small island so taking a big of time before hand to figure things out can help. You will not find big forts or landmarks. They didn't fit the history, the size or the flat landscape, but that doesn't mean it was boring in any way! If you happen to be on the island at a time when there are catboats around leaving through the channel at Camana Bay you will have an incredible opportunity to see old Cayman with new Cayman!
