Hi Saumya12,

Unless you're in a large group there's really no need to book seats. Please see:

But if you want or need to book seats the above pages include booking links you can use. Indeed the Wilhelm Tell Express seems to be unavailable for online booking currently. So if that does not change before you depart you can try at any staffed rail station in Switzerland.

As for the Golden Pass ride you can book seats from Montreux to Interlaken through ab3 (since you live in India). Be sure to only buy reservations for a train via Zweisimmen, e.g. the 9:44 AM train. Booking just from Montreux to Zweisimmen is fine as well.
