Hello, need a bit of a help.
We’re a family of 7 people and plan to travel to Switzerland this June 2018.
The plan is to stay 2 nights in Paris and then take a train from Paris to Lucerne.
Planning to stay 3/4 nights in Lucerne hence making Lucerne as our base as it will be difficult for a family of 7 to keep on check-in different hotels.
The question is, from Paris to Lucerne, there will be a change in Basel, so I’m not sure how to buy the tickets.
1)I’m still not sure whether to get Tell-Pass or Swiss Travel Pass. Do you recommend us to buy Tell-Pass and make the most of our stay in Lucerne, since that is our base? or do you think we should buy Swiss Travel Pass and go on train journeys and come back to lucern?
2) We have made Lucerne as our base, is it recommended to take the Glacier Express and such? or will it just be a waste of time? because we have to come back to Lucerne?
3) Should I buy tickets from the SBB website Paris to Lucern or separately as in Paris to Basel, and then Basel to Lucern? Which website?
Will really appreciate if some people can help me plan on this, thank you.
