Its a bit steep for $21.00, but the view up there is nice! There is nothing up there to do beside the VIEW. I think most tourist comes off a cruise ship, so why would you want to eat up there when its nothing special? All the staff was friendly so that is a big plus for my $21.00! I... More

Wow $21 each for the trip up via the tram. Talk about ripping off the tourists. Shameful. It is a great view up there but not for more then an hour. The shopping is minimal and the restaurant was average at best. It can get quite hot up there. The view may not be worth the cost, it's debatable. If... More

the view from the top was really great but I didn't think the price was good. You'll get great pictures, it's just up to you if you want to pay for it.

Taking the tram up to Paradise Point is a must see. It is so beautiful. Also try the Bushwacker while you are up there. Be careful though, it's deliciously potent and the alcohol will creep up on you. The only reason it got 4 stars is because when we bought our tickets, the woman at the window gave another woman...

The gondola/trams are neat but I felt like we needed to stay there as long as possible due to the high cost ($21/pp). I do believe the trams are probably worth doing once in your lifetime. Definitely a great spot to take pictures of all the cruise boats at the pier/docks. There's a couple of shops at the top and... More

This is in walking distance of the cruise port where we docked (not sure if there are others). The cost was about $21 per adult and about $13 per kid over 4. They took a great picture of us before the tram when up (you can buy it at the top). You should be able to move quickly to board... More

Took the tram up to paradise point on Wednesday night, got a light dinner, a bushwhacker, and danced to the wonderful sounds of a local band. It was a great night!!!!

If you are staying on the island, take the tram right at 5:00pm on Wednesday for $5. After 5 until close it is $5 but at 5pm exact you will be able to see the gorgeous sunset as you ride to the top. Must do for all couples! It is beautiful! (They will let you have your own car if... More

Ok, you're in St. Thomas, this cost $20.00 per person. Great ride up, nice people, great, NO Extremely great view. A few shops, pass on, stop at the bar, have a Bushwacker and life will be good. Worth the $ and the trip.
