We are a party of four arriving Zurich July 1st. I'm retracing my journey from 1972 when, as a young college student, I backpacked through Europe. Please note that this trip has a very different budget. :-) We would like to purchase 4 day Swiss Travel Pass's and make our rail reservations as soon as allowed by the rail carriers. We will be traveling July 3 from Zurich to Interlaken using regular rail tickets. Then activating our four day Swiss Travel Pass July 4 to travel Jungfrau Railway to Jungfraujoch and back to Interlaken. July 5th we will travel from Interlaken to Zermatt and want to use the old railway / tunnel; July 6th we'll board the Matterhorn Gornergrat and return to Zermat for the night. On July 7th we want to board the Glacier Express from Zermatt to Chur and transfer / connect to a train to Zurich. Our objective is to sit / travel panoramic cars if at all possible.
Any coaching would be most welcomed if anyone feels we are missing something due to your local knowledge. Please advise as to the earliest dates we can purchase tickets, 1st class seat reservations, who to purchase from, which sides of the train to sit on etc, etc.
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
