We are a family of four, including a senior (68 years) and a minor (9 years). We shall be in Switzerland from July 20 (evening) to July 25 (noon).

(i) Can you please suggest a tour where we can see cheese being made (and sample some too) which we can combine with our trip to the Jungfrau (via Lauterbrunnen on the way up and Grindelwald on the way down) on July 21, or with our trip to Schilthorn on July 22, both from Interlaken? It would be best if the journey can be entirely made with our Swiss travel Passes.

(ii) I also wanted to arrange a visit to a Swiss dairy farm for my family. I have requested Swissmooh for info about a visit to their Bubikon Farm from Zurich, since we will be staying at Zurich from July 22 night to July 25 noon. However, Swissmooh is not responding. May be they do not cater to such small groups as ours. Any other suggestions please? My daughter would love to touch a goat or a sheep. Ditto as above about Swiss Travel Passes.

(iii) Please also suggest day-trips to other Swiss towns/cities from Zurich, entirely coverable with our Swiss travel Passes.

(iv) Can we go to Heidiland from Zurich just with our Swiss Travel Passes?

Thanks in advance.

1. and 2. I'm not sure about options combining cheese making with Schilthorn/Jungfraujoch from Interlaken. The Ballenberg Museum is very interesting and offers demonstrations of local crafts, including cheese making, but it's near Brienz and not easily combined with either Jungfraujoch or Schilthorn. Some culinary tours are listed at ties/culinarytours. This one may be of interest, as it can be made from Zurich where you'll be staying a couple of days: h/Switzerland-Mountains-Cheese-and-Chocolates-Tour-from-Zurich.

3. Our recommendations for day trips in and near Zurich are listed at and /activities. The Swiss Travel Pass validity page explains what's covered: ravelpass/validity.

4. Sure, that's covered.
