Thanks, I am beginning to wonder about our timing but our Viking cruise was purchased late last year and we cannot change it. There are 6 other people in our group and they are staying in Zurich. I can wait a few weeks and just stay in Zurich for the first few days if necessary :( I'm looking forward to Switzerland (hiking/mountain tops) more than the Rhine River
Note - I've gone back to review travel options within Switzerland and am TOTALLY confused by all the options / choices. Especially since we cannot count on the weather for the travel up to the mountain tops.
? Regional Pass Berner Oberland (RPBO) $250 w/o Pass, $188 with Pass
? Swiss Travel Pass $281
? Swiss Travel Pass Flex $323
? Swiss Half Fare Card $120
? direct train from Zurich to Wengen (Jun 3, about $50 US) then Wengen to Basel (Jun 6, about $40 US) plus mountain travel costs plus ???
? direct train from Zurich to Bern (Jun 3) then Bern to Basel (Jun 6) plus RPBO and mountain travel costs
Just read an article that suggests "just get the Swiss Half Fare Card"
Perhaps analyzing TOO MUCH :)
