Thank you all for the suggestions. I also read the piece by Kim Harley about Wengen, which was helpful. We did reverse our itinerary, but decided to stay one night in Zurich - our first night, as we will have just arrived from an overnight flight and we have never been to Zurich. WHERE WOULD YOU EAT and WHAT WOULD YOU DO IN ZURICH IF YOU WERE ONLY THERE ONE DAY?
Our second day we will travel to Wengen for three nights, then Zermatt for two nights, then on to Lucerne for two nights and then train to Zurich airport. After reading about the different train passes, and doing the math, we decided to buy 2nd class Swiss travel passes for 8 days- seem like they are more flexible than the half fare card and come with more lifts, etc. I just booked through RAIL EUROPE and received $100 off promotion, which was nice. However, I got an email saying:
"We wanted to advise you that your booking is currently being processed. One of our experienced Travel Consultants will be contacting you within 5-7 business days. Urgent orders for travel within 2 weeks will be processed within 1-2 business days. A summary of your booking can be found below. Best regards, The Rail Europe Team"
Is this normal procedure? Am I being scammed?
Thanks. Any thoughts or comments are appreciated
