The Tell-Pass summer looks like a good option.
There is only one way to know for sure: plan your itinerary in detail, including all trips by train, bus, boat and cable car. Then look up the full-fare cost of all these planned trips and compare the total cost of separate tickets with the cost of doing the same trips with a Swiss rail pass.
You can find fares in the Swiss Timetable: www.myswissalps.com/ti metable.
It is important to be aware that the fare shown for any trip in the Swiss Timetable defaults to half fare, as most Swiss residents will have a Half-Fare travel card which entitles them to this discount. Your calculations need to be based on full fares, which are double the default fare that comes up.
There is information and a spreadsheet here to help you: www.myswissalps.com/tr ain/ticketspasses/prac tical/chooserailpass.
