Thank you for posting the 30% discount offer for the Swiss Travel Pass. I successfully purchased 8 day passes for myself and my family. We will be arriving in Zurich at 3:00 pm on June 11 and departing from Zurich on June 19th. We had originally planned to go to St.Moritz on the 11th, take the Bernina Express to Lugano on the 14th, travel to Zermatt on the 16th, take the Glacier Express to Chur then the train from Chur to Zurich on the 18th. After carefully reviewing the timetable, I'm wondering if we will make more sense and save some travel time to go first to Lugano on the 11th and take the Bernina Express from Lugano to St. Moritz. Is there a difference in experiencing the Bernina Express in the south to north direction and The Glacier Express from St. Moritz to Zermatt instead of Zermatt to Chur? Please review my revised itinerary and let me know if it makes sense. Thank you for your expert advice.
