It is worth the ride up to the top! You see the bay with so much activity. Plan to stay awhile, have a drink and/or meal.

We enjoyed the ride up and we stayed awhile to take pictures and enjoy the incredible views. We shopped at local vendors around the cafe. When we got tired we sat down close to the railing to enjoy the fresh air and no one ran us off because we hadn't ordered anything.

It might seem cheesy to do, but spend the $20 and the 45 minutes it takes to ride this up to the peak and get a gorgeous view of Charlotte Amalie. Worth the trip! But the green-screen photo opp isn't worth the $10. :) Take your own photo!

The Skyride takes you up on a mountain with a restaurant and bar. The views from the top are amazing. I highly recommend this ride!

This was one our favorite tours. It was a little scary on the way up because it was very breezy. Once at the top it is breath taking views. I recommend this Skyride for sure.

Our family enjoyed this smooth, beautiful ride up to Paradise Point to overlook the port area and our ship. Great excursion at a reasonable price (>$35 for 2 of us - adult + child). A short, safe walk from our ship. Stunning views, cute shops up top. I would highly recommend this attraction!

We arrived by cruise ship and easily completed the short walk from the pier to the Sky Ride. We were a little taken aback by the $21 PP US fee as we thought that was a bit steep but we were already here. There was another couple in line that we struck up a conversation with. When she saw all... More

The view was spectacular from the restaurant, the beer was cold and I probably had the best tasting order of nachos. Great value for the money.
