Hello Muthu, and welcome! First of all, you'll be perfectly able to travel by yourself. Switzerland is very tourist-minded. Signs at railway stations are clear and personnel is there to help you out. You can plan your trips in advance using the Swiss timetable
. I'm not sure which rail tickets are offered by your tour operator. Generally, a Swiss Pass
is a very good option for an itinerary like yours, but you'll have to find out what's covered by your tour operator and what isn't. Here
's how to calculate whether a pass is cost effective.
As for your itinerary: I think it's doable, but it may be a bit too much for a 7 day stay. You may want to skip one of the towns in order to travel less and spend more time on each location. Zermatt and its surroundings are wonderful, for non-skiers too, but it does require quite a long trip. You could focus on Interlaken, Lucerne and Zurich instead. This day trip overview
and browsing the forum may help you decide which day trips to plan.
Yes, you have to carry along your passport.
