    Regardless of the tram number, the phrase "quick tram tour" is an oxymoron. The Alexandria trams travel so incredibly slowly that it can take an hour to get just a few miles. We spent four (enjoyable) days in Alexandria last year and took the trams a lot, but the trips were very leisurely, to say the least. The price is miniscule, but you get what you pay for. We stayed at the Four Seasons San Sebastian and from there it took at least 45 minutes to get to the central tram terminus--barely halfway across town.

    I would advise you to hire a taxi for a quick tour. This is also quite cheap, and you'll see what you want to see.
