Thanks Lucas! All of you have been a great help for me and I can't thank you enough!
Yes I guess that will be true and if given a choice they would def be picking the chocolate factory haha. However its mentioned that the train from Lucern to Montruex (golden Pass) will take 5.5 hours. Even if I take the train from Lauterbrunnen To Interlaken Ost then onwards to Montruex, would I have time to go to Broc's chocolate tour? In the time table, if take the train from Lauterbrunnen at 8:03am, it arrives at Montruex (thru Zweisimmen) at 12.13pm. Then from there it takes 2 hours to Broc Village at 2pm. Would we have enough time to have a tour and visit the factory?
Also another question I have is if I should get the Swiss travel pass if i don't consider doing the scenic trains at all since we will be doing lots of train rides thruout the stay. I read in a not the post that the swiss pass is only useful if we take the scenic trains?
Could you help and tell me if for this itinerary, i would need a half fare card or swiss pass or nothing at all. I tried checking SBB sites for prices but some routes doesn't show the price.
Day 1 - Basel Airport to Lauterbrunnen - visit staubbach falls or just relax.
2 - Visit tramelbauch falls, Visit Murren/Gimmelwald
3 - Golden pass train from interlaken to Montruex-Broc and return to Lucern (if buying swiss pass). If not buying swiss pass, visit jungfraujoch or Schilthorn
4 - Take a train to Lucern (will be here for 4 days) - Explore Luzern, Swiss transport museum, old city, chapel bridge etc
5 - Go to either Mt. Rigi or Mt Pilatus
6 - A day trip to Lugano over the famous Gotthard line (with pass). OR visit Other city - Zurich for a day
7 - Mt Titlis/Engelberg
8 - Train to geneva airport at 2 pm.
Thank you So much!!!
