Metro tickets

We will be coming from Alexandria for four days. There will be four of us. Which pass will be the cheapest for us? We plan on doing a lot of walking so other than coming from and going to our hotel, I don't know how much we will use the metro.

Since the Metro fare varies for both distance and time of day, without knowing which Metro station you are coming from (there is no Alexandria station), and whether you plan your trip during peak times, it is impossible to know the cheapest option. If you really take only 2 trips a day, getting a SmarTrip card for each person with about $25 in value might be the cheapest. That will cost you $30 each. A 7-day short-trip pass will be more convenient and might end up being cheaper. There is no way to know without calculating every trip you plan to take.
