Have not done it yet, but you can do it and come and go as you please. I forget the cost, but you ride it up, there are lookout points, restaurant, and gift shops. You can come down as you please. We are scheduled for an excursion at noon, so we are going up first thing off the boat, then head to our excursion. Have a good time. Everyone says this is a must do and not to miss it. If you go to search, and put in St.Thomas tram it will come up and you can see it. I am thinking it was around 7.00 per person, but could be wrong on that. Have fun!
