Thanks Lucas & Slowpoke for your comments!
Based on the comments i would like to test, if following alteration in itinerary sound right :)
23 July (Day 1) - After reaching to Luzern by 14:00, Plan to visit to Mt. Rigi by taking a boat ride to Weggis --> Cable car to Rigi Kulm. Spend 1 about and hour --> Take cogwheel railway to Vitznau (18:00) --> Boat ride back to Luzern. Basically the idea is to cover both path (Cable car + Cog wheel railway). The question is shall we go to Mt. Rigi via weggis route and comeback via Vitznau route back to Luzern or vice versa. Not sure at this time which will be more crowded route. Any suggestions ? (all this plan based on whether of course)
24 July (Day 2) - As suggested by Lucas, I will take a decision based on how the day has gone by and whether to continue our visit to Pilatus (I definitely want to cover this but if its to exhaustive may need to give it a miss) or spend more time on Mt. Titlis & once back in Luzern try to visit city attractions such as Lion monument.How far this monument from Luzern Train station ?
July 26 (day 4) - Based on suggestions, Is it a good idea to do Gornergrat Day 4 & keep Schilthorn, Trümmelbach falls & thun lake on Day 5. This way i see 2 benefits & 1 drawback:
1. We are near to Interlaken & can easily drop Thun lake or Trümmelbach falls incase any issues with the timings to catch our return flight to London from Zurich (9:30 PM).
2. We could keep our Luggage in hotel after checkout.
Drawback - We have 4 days swiss travel pass & i think Shilthorn journey is free end to end on this pass? if we plan to cover shilthorn on day 5 we will need to buy separate tickets ?
Also Please suggest what will be the economical way of covering Day 5 Itinerary (Either Gornergrat or Shilthorn)& return travel to Zurich Airport.( e.g. Swiss Half Fare Card or Buy the individual tickets or any other option) ?
Do we need to buy a ticket for my kid (8 years) as well in case we plan to buy individual journey ticket & mountain excursion on day 5 ?
Thun lake & Luzern boat ride is free on Swiss travel Pass ?
All suggestions are welcome :)
