Hello dpkeee,

I recommend a 4 day Swiss Saver Pass. See here for prices, points of sale, what's included, how to use the pass, etc.: www.myswissalps.com/swisspass

Your itinerary looks good if you don't mind a lot of traveling. The Glacier Express day is very long though, and you will be doing the same route twice. If you are going to spend that much time on it, I think you will enjoy it better if you make it a circular trip. A sample route is Interlaken - Brig (board the Glacier Express) - Andermatt - Chur (deboard) - Zurich - Bern - Interlaken. This way, the ride will also include the Oberalp Pass and the Rhine gorge. See the timetable for details please.

I hope this was useful for you!

Kind regards,
