Hi Sharmadeepa,

If you spend 4 days in Luzern (good idea I think) then the Tell Pass -Summer would be your best bet. You can buy it for 4 days to cover Oct 26, 27, 27 and 29 - then head back to Zurich on the 30th where you can explore without the need of a rail pass that day.

The Swiss Travel Pass can also be bought for 4 days but not 5. It will cover both towns but it would only make some sense if you did at least 2 days in Zurich. You would then have to decide to use it on your first 4 days or last 4 days.

You can find a PDF map to see what is covered by the Swiss Travel Pass here and the Tell Pass - Summer here.
