Hi karthik! The 8 day Swiss Pass would be the most convenient option, as you can travel for free without having to buy separate tickets. If offers great flexibility and allows you to adapt your plans (for example to weather circumstances) as you like. Another advantage is that the ride up the Rigi is for free with your Swiss Pass, and that'll save quite some money. Boat trips over lake Lucerne are for free too, so you can make long cruises and cross the entire lake if you like. Moreover, the Swiss Pass offers discounts for the Transport Museum in Lucerne. The 8 day Swiss Saver Pass doesn't cover all 9 nine of your stay, but you can buy regular tickets for the last day in Geneva, if you plan to stay in or close to the city.

I hope this helps you decide!
