Hi Sangi, and welcome to MySwissAlps!
>> Day 1....Stanserhorn......is it possible to do if we start at 4pm?
Starting from where? You can find out by using the information on the following page in conjunction with the Swiss Timetable.
(Use the one on the right with the red SBB logo.)
>> Day3...we would like to do the combination of gotthard panorama and glacier express, only the free part which is under the Tell pass. What would the route be like from Lucern and back to lucern, as I am not able to understand it completely. Also how much would be the total time taken for the journey and what time should we start.
The key to deciding what is possible and/or practical is to use the Swiss Timetable to plan out your trip, and see how long it will take. The link to the timetable has been provided above.
One option for doing part of the Gotthard Panorama Express route and the Glacier Express Route is to travel as follows:
- Luzern > Flüelen (boat or train)
- Flüelen > Andermatt (train)
- Andermatt > Sedrun (train)
Then you would return to Luzern the same way. You would be using regional trains rather than the actual Glacier Express or Gotthard Panorama Express trains.
In the other direction (on the Glacier Express route) you can only travel as far as Realp with the Tell-Pass. On the Gotthard Panorama Express route, you can only travel as far as Göschenen. (With the Tell-Pass you can continue to Andermatt, but that is not part of the Gotthard Panorama Express route, as the Gotthard Panorama Express goes into a tunnel just after Göschenen, and bypasses Andermatt).
I have done something similar (without the boat trip), which you can read about here if you are interested:
I had done the boat trip previously. If interested, you can see some photos I took during the boat trip on the following page:
>> Day 5....we will leave for Zurich airport early morning. Leave our bags at the airport and would like to do the Rhine falls and Stein am Rhine ... how do we work out this trip, I mean the best way and cheapest pricing which should include the travel from Lucern if possible.
The Swiss Timetable will give you the fastest route by default.
The cheapest option would probably be either point-to-point tickets or a Saver Day Pass. You will first need to calculate the cost of point-to-point tickets, then compare the result with the cost of the Saver Day Pass.
You can find fares in the Swiss Timetable. The first fare you see for a particular trip will say "Tickets from CHF ##.##". This figure only applies to passengers who have a Swiss Half Fare Card (for tourists) or Half-Fare travelcard (for Swiss residents). Your calculations need to be based on full fares, which are double that fare.
