    My travel plans are:
    1. 2 days in Zurich with a visit to the Rhine Falls. A train travel to Lucerne.
    2. 2 days in Lucerne. A trip to Pilatus. A travel to Geneva, including Golden Pass panoramic.
    3. 2 days in Geneva. A train travel to Zermatt.
    4. 2 days in Zermatt. A train travel to Gornergrat or Matterhorn. A trip with Glacier Express to Chur.
    5. 2 days in Chur. A return to Zurich.
    We are two – me and my husband. The journey starts on 10AUG2012.
    Please, advise which is the most suitable Swiss pass for us. We intend to travel 1 class in the panoramic trains.
    Thank you.

    Hi omika. Since you plan to make some long and expensive trips, I think you should consider a 5 day Swiss Saver Flexi Pass. With this pass, your five long transfers (Zurich-Rhine Falls-Lucerne, Lucerne-Geneva, Geneva-Zermatt, Zermatt-Chur and Chur-Zurich) will be for free. On days in between, you can use tickets with a 50% discount. You’ll also need additional seat reservations for the Golden Pass and the Glacier Express.

    I hope this helps you decide!

    Thank you for the answer, Annika. 🙂
    I decided to follow your advice and to buy a 5-day Swiss Saver Flexi Pass.
    Can I buy it from Zurich Airport?

    Best regards.

    P. S. Thank you for the excellent forum. 🙂
