We are travelling to Switzerland on April 21 from Paris and I was informed that it was our best option to get a point-to-point ticket from Paris to Basel and then a transfer ticket for Basel to Zermatt and then from Zermatt to Geneva. My question is how do I book a ticket now for the train ride from Basel to Zermatt and Zermatt to Geneva? Or do I just show up at the Basel Train Station and hope there is a train leaving to Zermatt shortly after I get there. (For example: We are planning on arriving in Basel at 10:26am, and would like to leave shortly thereafter to get to Zermatt.
