We are flying to Zurich on Monday and staying in Lucerne until Wednesday. We are on a low budget and would welcome some advice regarding whether to buy a Tell pass or not. We need to get a train to Lucerne when we arrive and on the Tuesday we would like to take a trip up Mount Rigi which would like to experience a boat trip, cogwheel rail and a cable car. Any advice would be very welcome.
