Hi azura11!

Since you'll be traveling quite long distances on nearly all days of your trip, an 8 day Swiss Travel Pass is by far the most convenient option. It will cover most of your trips. You'll only have to buy additional tickets for the mountain excursions (like the Jungfraujoch and First) and seat reservations for the Glacier Express trip. If you like, you can calculate whether the Swiss Travel Pass is the cheapest option by making calculations as explained at ain/ticketspasses/prac tical/chooserailpass.
