Welcome to MySwissAlps Ac3912!

This will help you to make your choice:

By the way, I moved your thread from the Trip Reports forum to the Rail forum as this is not about a completed trip, but rather a planning question.

Hello ac3912,

They are both good in their own way. Which one to choose depends to a large extent on which one fits best in the rest of your itinerary. I chose both.

As well as the links Arno has provided you can read about my recent experiences (and why I preferred the Bernina Express) at www.myswissalps.com/fo rum/topic/the-reluctant-travellers-swiss-adventure-part-3 and www.myswissalps.com/fo rum/topic/the-reluctant-travellers-swiss-adventure-part4

This map of the panoramic routes might help you to arrange your itinerary so that your chosen scenic route fits logically within your itinerary.

The Wilhelm Tell Express on the map is now called the Gotthard Panorama Express.
