Hi Sheeram -

Welcome to My Swiss Alps.

Thanks for the detailed information.

It is difficult for us to help out on this unless we know a bit more about your interests.

Can you say a bit more about what you want to do? Scenic trains? Museums? Hiking? Old cities?

If you pick one city, consider Lucerne.

For yor trip, you migh consider one changeof hotels, which could increase your flexibility.

Hi Shreeram -

I was rushing when I wrote my last reply. Here is a bit more.

The links for specific cities under this main link will be helpful:

www.myswissalps.com/wh eretogo

www.myswissalps.com/lu cerne

and, to help understand travel times and routes, these links will help:

map.search.ch/?pos=691200,220928&z=4

In that map, under"Points of Interest" click on "Traffic" to see transport stops/stations.

Zoom in far enough, and you can see the rail lines.

And,

Hi Shreeram,

We don't build itineraries here - if you need help with making an itinerary try our link here.

You can see the scenic train options for Switzerland here. Although I thnk all trains are scenic, those listed on the web page are panoramic trains that offer a unique experience!

All Swiss cities are old :) Have a look at our Swiss town page to read through the most popular options.
As Slowpoke mentioned, Lucerne is one of the most popular towns to stay in Switzerland for its wide array of nearby activities.

You would like the Chocolate train (which you can read about and book here) that will take you on a tour to the cheese and chocolate factories near Gruyeres from Montreux.

I'm not sure about the costs of hiring an English tour guide for your trip. Perhaps contact Tourism Switzerland (http://www.myswitzerla nd.com/en-ch/home.html) is your best option as they may have recommended tour guides to contact.

Yes, you can find hotels in each town for the 4 of you in one room. We list our recommended hotels for all budgets in each of our city pages (found on the Swiss Town page here).

I don't know about times for tour starts - it depends on the tour and where you are going to and from.

>> if i want to stay at One city and One hotel during my whole trip which city will be right because i do not to change hotels every time ... I want scenic train ... and chocolate and cheese factory visit.

If you are only going to stay in one place, I agree that Luzern is a good choice. However, it is not well located for a visit to the chocolate and cheese factories in Broc and Gruyères. Travel time by the fastest route from Luzern to Broc is 2 hours 24 minutes, then 22 minutes to the cheese factory at Gruyères, then around 3 hours back to Luzern. So that's around 6 hours travel time on top of whatever time you spend in the factories.

I think if Luzern and Montreux are the two towns you should consider staying at during your trip (if you are ok with the hotel change in the end). Montreux is close to the cheese and chocolate factories at Gruyeres and Broc.

Cheers,
