My husband and I are arriving in Switzerland on July 20th. We have had a great time planning our trip with all the ideas found on MySwissAlps.com and the forum; however, we are still confused as to whether the 8 day Swiss Travel Pass or Half Price Card is the better option or point to point tickets? Please see itinerary below. Our hotel will be providing two 4-day Murren-Schilthorn Holiday Passes but from what we understand, the pass does not cover transportation in the Mannlichen, Kleine Scheidegg, Grindelwald area. In Lucerne, does the Travel Pass cover the boat ride and trip to Rigi Kulm? It appeared in the spreadsheet that it only covers 25%. We would also welcome any comments or suggestions on our itinerary. Thanks so much!
July 20: Zurich Airport to Murren (our base will be in Murren)
July 21 & 22: Hikes in the Murren-Gimmelwald-Schilthorn area (Most of our hikes will be in the "easy" category")
July 23 & 24: Hikes in the Mannlichen, Kleine Scheidegg, Grindelwald area
July 25: Travel from Murren to Lucerne
July 26: Tour Lucerne, boat ride and trip to Rigi Kulm
