My friends are travelling to Switzerland from 22nd April till 29th April, was trying to find the best possible destinations and the best Swiss rail pass for them, but I have few queries, please help to guide on that.
So the plan I made is:
Day 1 - They land in Geneva(I stay in Geneva) from Paris a day before(21st night). On 22nd - I will take them to Geneva main attractions and later they take a train to Zermatt. Stay in Zermatt.
Day 2 - Visit Matterhorn and then take Glacier train from Zermatt to Chur. (I dont see a connectivity from Chur to Interlaken, please help to know the route from Chur to Interlaken?)
Day 3: Stay in Interlaken and take day trips from Interlaken -> Jungfrau
Day 4: Interlaken to Engelberg to Mount Titlis, come back via Lucern
Day 5: Interlaken to Bern (will it be possible to do Thun on the same day?)
Day 6: Interlaken to Rhine Falls --> I am not able to find the connectivity here or do you suggest to stay in Lucern/Zurich to reach Rhine falls and Titisee falls ?
Day 7: Explore Zurich.
Day 8: Explore Zurich and take the flight in the afternoon from Zurich to Bombay.
In addition to the above gaps, I understand the Swiss Travel pass will be the best choice, but I have questions on that as well:
1. With the Swiss Travel pass, I will have to pay 50% on the cable cars in Matterhorn, Titlis and Jungfrau correct?
2. With the Swiss Travel Pass, I will have to book a seat reservation on trains like Glacier and Jungfrau, correct? which will be upto 33chf and (??) respectively. Do you still think Swiss Travel pass is the best choice?
Also, please suggest if there is anything I am missing in terms of the best places to be visited, as I would like them to spend the 8 days perfectly. :)
Thanks a ton,
