Your responses and links provided have been very helpful. We will probably purchase either 4-day Flexi Pass or 4 day Flexi Pass Combi with Half Fare Pass as we will be using trains for four non-contiguous days, with possibility of another day or two of brief use. A couple additional questions & clarifications.
1) Is there any difference in fares between Flexi vs Combi Pass for private trains between Champex and Zermatt and taking the Gornergrat (with advanced ticketing not needed)?
2) When we complete Mont Blanc hike several days later, we are debating whether to overnight in Les Hoches, Geneva or Montreux. There appear to trains hourly between 4-7 pm with about 3 hrs travel time to Montreux with Swiss Passes not valid from Les Hoches or Chamonix or on Mont Express train with discounting only from Swiss border or from Martigny? What are these fares without using any Swiss Pass vs Flexi Pass vs Combi Pass?
3) Based on your previous responses, Flexi Pass fully covers fares on Golden Pass train (with reserved seats purchased separately), boat on Lake Lucerne to Vitznau + train up & down Mt. Rigi, and connections from Vitznau to Andermatt + Glacier Express to St. Moritz (+ Glacier Express supplement fees at about $34/person)?
