Tell passes just seem to be thing for me. Good thing you were around to guide me with this. I will buy a 2 day tell pass for 2 adults @ 170 CHF and 2 kids @ 30 CHF. And I think I will take on your suggested plan. I was thinking of doing the following, pleae advise if the Tell Pass will cover all the transport and do I need to be wary about the timings of each mode of transport.
On 12th June, I would
Take the boat from Lucerne to Vitznau. Change to the cogwheel train to Rigi Kulm and enjoy the view. Then take the cogwheel train down to Arth-Goldau and change to the regular train to Lucerne.
For the above, will the Tell Pass cover it all. How much time will I need for the complete return trip say we spend 1 hour at the top. I am thinking whether I could squeeze in a panaromic train. If so, is there any good short option from Arth-Goldau ?
On 13th I would do a Mount Titlis tour. Cable car from Engelberg to TitlisTrain to Engelberg
Just to confirm the above return trip will too be covered on Tell Pass. I know I will need to pay a supplement for the Ice Flyer but no more. If I want to do a morning tour, when is the earliest to leave so that I can get back in enough time to do a museum tour. Are the various trains and boats regular in Lucerne or do I need to book upfront or queue up for hours ?
And the pass will also cover the bus ? This will enable us to travel within the town to various places of interest. I didn' add but my wife has physical difficulties and any hiking or long distance walking is out of question.
