Hi! I'm spending almost and month and a half in Switzerland and other countries near by. I'm in Switzerland now and after reading your post I am happy to share some suggestions! :-) First off, have you decided on what hotels yet? If not, I could make some suggestions in Montreux due to the fact we are staying there right now. On the 7th if you have time I would suggest seeing the Chillion Castle. If you get the Swiss Pass it is free to get in! Although my family and I thought it was very interesting, but since your parents do not like museums I do not know if they would like it. It is certainly worth the consideration. Today we did the golden passage, and it was beautiful! One down side is the train ride is long. We took a break in a small town called Gstaad and were very impressed! Its cute cobblestone streets and shops entertained us for a while. A train comes every hour on the golden pass route, so you can have a nice quick visit. After taking the panoramic and the classic trains I think the panoramic was more enjoyable. Just wondering what you plan on doing/ why you are going to Titlis? I have not heard anything about it. Tomorrow my family and I are going to lucerne, so if you want I will let you in on the secrets to the city ;-) aha Overall your trip looks like a lot of fun. I hope this helps!
P.s. If u have time (but it look like you haven't) the city of Bern is really nice and defiantly worth a vist.
Also for the passes if you get the Swiss pass you can get on and off every train without dealing with getting tickets. With the half price you will most likely have to buy tickets before every train you take. Lastly, have you decided on first or second class tickets?
