I have a group of 16 people traveling to Switzerland in late Aug - early September by private coach. I am also adding some train journeys. Please check to see if anything is repeated or can be substituted or eliminated. Our main interest is sightseeing, nature, culture and History. I want to make sure that all train rides in the itinerary are very scenic and highly recommended or we can skip some. Should I eliminate Montreaux and add one more day in Lucerne instead? Any suggestions will be appreciated. The routing can be revised to make it efficient and logical.
