After a morning of snorkeling, my family and I took a relaxing tram ride to Paradise Point. The view is spectacular. I encourage all to try their famous Bushwhacker cocktail and an appetizer or two. Sit and enjoy watching the ships large and small sail into the harbor. You also can watch seaplanes come and go. A quick note: there... More

Ok...$42.00 for a five minute each way ride up and down for two people....totally ridiculous!!! The view from the top was spectacular, but that was about it!!! Did a picture taking with the "bird" lady and her parrots for $20.00 (not bad considering she put several pictures on our phone, iPad, and one good looking print. Didn't eat at the... More

I had a little bit of time to kill while my wife was shopping, so I took the tram up and enjoyed the view very much. There are tourist shops with local wares up at the top. I would caution people entering or leaving the tram, because it just feels a bit dangerous. The trams are moving around a semi-circle... More

My wife and I, our son, daughter, and a friend all rode the tram. Everyone in our family used a credit card to pay to ride the tram, friend did not, The next day our credit cards used here were swiped in three different states. This is the only location on our entire trip all of used our credit card.

Don't waste your time on this. My family and myself thought this would be a great experience and view to be able to see all the surrounding area considering we were visiting on a cruise and only there for a few hours. We got to the top and there were a bunch of run down shops adding no value to... More

The view from the top is unbelievable. The pictures that I took looked like a post card that showed the islands and the cruise ships below. Just gorgeous! We paid cash for our tickets, but heard from others about their credit card info. being scammed. I believe it is worth the admission price. The view is something you will keep... More

Every time we get to visit St. Thomas, this is one thing we must do, even though the ride up and down in the tram is overpriced. What makes it worth it? The beautiful views from the top and having a couple of bushwackers to enjoy. Our first visit was back in 2007 (we've been there 4 times), and back... More

Paradise Point Tramway in St. Thomas is well worth the $5 ticket. It's walking distance from the cruise ships dock. If you wait until after 5:00 PM the ticket is only $5. We booked ours through the cruise line and paid over $20. Live and learn. The staff were very friendly and helpful and really wanted us to know more... More

We visited here in February 2014 when in port during our Disney cruise. We did our excursion during the day and had two hours to spare before leaving port so we walked the short walk to the gondolas. The ride was free for our two kids (2 and 5) and we paid for two adults. We climbed the stairs and... More
