I have seen / read the posts on the forum. However my confusion still reins about what is more economical - half fare card or swiss pass !
We ( 2 + 2) reach Geneva on 16th am and plan to spend the day there - sight seeing etc , early evening we take a train to Lucerne where we have booked a hotel for the next 4 nights.
17th - Looking to go to Mt Pilatus via Alpnachstad ( boat ) and return on the gondola via Kreins
17th evening - take a train to Interlaken and then to Grindelwald for a night stay
18th early morning Jungfrau excursion and then return via Wengen / Lauterbrunnen ( see Trummelbach Falls if time & weather permit ) and return to Lucerne by late evening.
19th Take the train from Lucerne to Engelberg to go up Mt Titlis and in the evening, return to Lucerne
20th day in Lucerne / local sightseeing etc and by 1600 , take the train back to Geneva for a flight back to UK
1. With this in mind, what would work out cheaper in terms of travel costs ?
2. With a Half Fare card + Family card, do the kids still travel free or they do have to buy half fare tickets / Junior Card (one is 6 and the other 12 )
3. Want to squeeze in session of Tandem Para-gliding - Is Interlaken good or Lucerne ? Any known names please send.
4. There are quite a few tour options available but are confusing ( or is it me !) in terms of what is discounted and what not etc.
Many thanks All.
