Hi Jesse and welcome to MySwissAlps!

You are really moving around Switzerland on your 8 days. I would recommend not moving around quite so much unless you really need to.

Day 1: Doesn't make a lot of sense in terms of direction. Zurich - Interlaken - Bern - Interlaken. I would go stay in Interlaken and maybe not see Bern. Although if you want a few hours there (and it is a nice town) I would travel to Bern first and then to Interlaken and not do the Golden Pass route here between Luzern and Interlaken.

Day 2: This day can work just fine (Lake Brienz and Jungfraujoch). Just be sure the weather looks good before committing to Jungfraujoch in either the morning or the afternoon.

Day 3: Unless there is something you need to see in Geneva I would stay in Montreux.

Day 4: You can do the Lake Geneva boat tour from Montreux as well as other activities.

Day 5: looks good

Day 6: looks good

Day 7: Luzern and Mt. Titlis. I would try to do this around day 1 other than Bern perhaps (whichever is more interesting to you. But in the end a day trip to Mt. Titlis is certainly not a big issue from Zurich.

In the end I would try and take at least one destination out - I'm leaning to Geneva on the above itinerary but it is a personal choice of course.

I would also look at the Swiss Travel Pass for 8 days that will cover your trips quite well.
