What a wonderful and unique experience. Our tour guide was such a great storyteller and so passionate about the history of Pedro St. James. Quick tip - get there a bit early to catch the sunset from the restaurant next door. It is STUNNING.
This tour was so much fun and extremely educational. Mr. Stacy our tour guide was phenomenal, he was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the St. James Castle.
I definitely recommend it!
