Welcome here, and sorry for the late reply! The general rule to pick a pass is the add the fares of regular tickets and compare that to pass prices. It is explained for Switzerland here
. For your 4 days in Switzerland, it sounds like either a 4-day Swiss Saver Pass
or a Swiss Half Fare Card
would be suitable. The first one is the best if you make the most out of these days: i.e. traveling quite a lot and having the freedom of doing an extra free train or boat trip if you feel like it. The second option is better for regional trips.
I'm not sure what you mean with "day excursions". Are you referring to organised tours? You can visit any (tourist) site on your own as well. For Grindelwald for example, you can just use your pass to travel to Grindelwald and get a discounted cable car ticket on the spot.
The best mode of transportation is usually the train, or sometimes bus or boat. The timetable
helps you to plan your trips.
I hope this helps!
