This is a good deal to experience the ride and sightsee; however I would recommend getting an all-day pass that costs $5.00. If you don't, then you'll need $1.25 exact change (it can be a dollar bill and coins, even pennies) each time you get off and on. We rode the streetcar to Washington and got off to see the Lafayette Cemetary #1, and then we went to 1st & Chestnut to see Ann Rice's house. We walked through the Garden District checking out all the beautiful homes, then walked along Magazine Street checking out the antique shops. We tried to walk all the way to the Audobon Park but got tired and hopped on the streetcar back to the hotel. If we had an all-day pass we could have hopped on and off, so figure out where you'll go; how many times you think you'll use it that day.
Cons: no transfers
