7 minutes up, 7 minutes there, 7 minutes down. Take some pics, get a bushwacker, thats basically it. We did it because we've been coming to St Thomas for years and never took the ride up. It's only open when cruise ships come in. Happy we did it, just to cross it off the list, but would never do it... More

We were on the Norwegian Escape cruise ship and decided at the last minute to book this excursion because we had nothing else planned. So glad we did. It's within walking distance across the street from the port where the shops pull in. My biggest tip for you...go early! Especially if your ship pulls into port first! We walked right... More

Sure, Paradise Point is higher than the Tower, but it is also considerable more expensive and doesn't offer the same historical experience and insights that you get at Blackbeard's Tower - the views from the Tower are also very good and, in our opinion, better as they offer a greater perspective of the town.

We drove and it was only five dollars to park. The tram on Wednesday night is only five dollars per person. There is a live band from seven to nine. The local people are friendly and love to dance.

We actually drove our rental car up to paradise point. The views were wonderful and different than you can get elsewhere. There are shops and a restaurant with great views as well.

The view of Charlotte Amalie and the surrounding bays and hillsides are worth the trip. On Wednesdays, the fee is $5, and there is live music at the top. The restaurant at the top is extremely casual--not a setting I would seek for dinner, but the drinks are very affordable, and the food looked decent. Reviews we heard about the... More

A bit of a wait as there are not a cars running. The view was gorgeous and the restaurant at the top was sublime. Stunning views down to the ports overlooking the ships. Turquoise waters and yacht watching. It doesn't get better than that!

So it's $20.50 US for adults and $10.50 US for kids 12 and under, and takes 7 mins to get to the top. Get on the last carriage going up for the best view! But once you get up the top that view is AMAZING!!!! There is a great bar up the top and do not go back down without... More

A nice ride up to Paradise Point with a great view over Havensight and the very big cruiseships. There´s many souvernir shops, maybe a little too commercial.
