Thank you so much for all the great advice! Now I'm trying to determine if we should get 5 Swiss Travel Passes for myself, wife, and 3 20+ year old kids. Here is our current plan:
Day 1: Travel from Milan to Montreux by train
Day 2: Do the chocolate train route - but probably with regular trains
Day 3: Sightseeing in Montreux area (castle, maybe boat ride)
Day 4: Golden Pass Line to Interlaken, go on one of the day trips from there - hopefully involving a cable car, and then return to Montreux late afternoon via Golden Pass Line.
Day 5: Leave Switzerland - head to Paris by train.
I'm continually reading everything I can on this site, but please feel free to pass along any words of wisdom about the itinerary, or about whether we should get the STP. It sounds like we might benefit from the STP's 4 day promotion. It also sounds like that even if we don't break even, it might be worth it for the convenience, including skipping lines.
