Hi Jay, thanks for joining us, and welcome!
You've selected some very long day trips. Be sure to check the timetable so you know how long it takes before you decide. Note the spelling of places, that will make it easier to find schedules: Titles = Titlis, Montraux = Montreux, Swiss = Switzerland.
The 3 mountain trips you have in mind are very different experiences. You'll find all details on our Pilatus, Titlis and Jungfraujoch pages, so you can decide for yourself. Things will also depend on the weather. There's no point in going up if a peak is covered in clouds. Bern and the Golden Pass are very different as well. Both are worth it. Personally I would pick the Golden Pass ride over a city visit, but on the other hand it might be nice to walk around a bit as you'll be sitting in trains a lot anyway. Please see the linked pages for details.
On day 3, I would recommend not to travel as far as Zermatt, but get off the Glacier Express in Brig as suggested here. Brig to Zermatt is in a narrow valley. Nice, but not the highlight of the trip, and you must backtrack that leg to travel back to Zurich. It will make a long day trip 2-3 hours longer.
You can buy the Swiss Travel Pass from any of the websites listed here. The easiest way is to print it at home: go to www.swissrailways.com/ en, fill out the requested information, and pick "Online Ticket" from the bottom of the list of shipping options. They will e-mail the pass to you.
I hope this was useful. Have fun!
