This is our first trip to Switzerland and only have 4 days in Lucerne and 1 day in Lugano. We are planning a trip to Mt. Pilatus and are planning on booking the Golden Round Trip. We would also like to travel to Jungfrau. Is it best to do a tour, or try and figure out how to book trains on our own to get there? If booking on your own is best way, any tips on how to do that would be appreciated. Any other sight seeing/tour suggestions from anyone would be great. We will be traveling mid September. Thank you.

Hi kalex, welcome to MySwissAlps!

A trip to Jungfraujoch from Lucerne takes a lot of time. Count on 11 hours or so. If you don't mind that it's fine of course. Whether you should take a guided tour or do it on your own is a personal preference. You'll find details of each option here:

Hi Kalex-

In addition to Arno's comments, I would add that the SBB timetable is very useful, and full of good information if you dig in a bit:

A map helps, too:

Take a look at this recent excellently prepared trip report...is is right to the point for you:
