Enjoy the cultural sights and sounds of two of Cayman's top heritage attractions in one customized excursion.
Departing directly from the pier, you will first travel along the south coast of the island with your experienced tour guide and driver providing an interesting narration as to the history of the Cayman Islands and its people. Following the coast road, you will soon arrive at the Pedro St. James National Historic Site and the famous Pedro's Castle - the birth place of democracy in the Cayman Islands. You'll be amazed at the grandeur of this spectacularly restored site which transports you back in time. A tour of the castle, the lush grounds and an animated show completes your visit.
Next, travel through the original capital of the Cayman Islands - Bodden Town, with its quaint and colorful cottages and traditional Caymanian homesteads while on your way to the Botanical Gardens. Here you can stroll about and enjoy viewing some of Grand Cayman's most exotic plants and indigenous species of wild life, such as the endangered blue iguana.
After a leisurely visit to the Botanical Gardens, you will re-board your coach and travel back to Georgetown. Participants have the option of continuing on to the pier, or being dropped in town to do some shopping. Guests who elect to stay in town are responsible for making their own way back to the pier at their own expense.
