Hi sarangn,

If you prefer 1st class traveling, then the Eurail France-Switzerland Pass fits your plans perfectly. It includes all train rides for free, except for the seat reservations you need for Geneva to Paris and probably Paris to Nice as well. You will get a discount on the mountain trips to the Pilatus, Titlis and Jungfraujoch. You will also get a 15% discount on the pass because 2 people will be traveling together.

Please see here for all pass details such as prices, discounts, what's covered and more.

With your wish list I would skip Gstaad and spend 3 nights in Lucerne (do to the Rhine Fall, Pilatus and Titlis), and 2 nights in Interlaken (to do the Jungfraujoch). For hotel suggestions in Lucerne, please look here, and for Interlaken here.

Does this help?
