The trip was a thrilling, stunningly beautiful, once a life time type of experience. We got to enjoy and appreciate the wonder that is the Swiss Alps. The tickets were easily redeemed at the train station, and worked without an issue throughout the tour. 2 things to add, in case it’s helpful to anyone : 1. You will essentially ascend from 500m to 3500m above the sea level in a short period of time. Be careful of potential altitude sickness. 2. We booked the option with Eurail pass, and thought we’d need to use a travel day for this tour. It turned out we didn’t have to and just need to have a valid Eurail pass. I.e. the Eurail pass just needs to be valid, but not activated, you don’t have to waste a travel day like we did.

The Eiger express was awesome! Dont forget to take a video. Going up the snowy scenery was spectacular but going down seeimg the lights from the houses was equallt mesmerizing!

We made use of the Swiss Travel Pass. It was amazing. The ticket arrived right and fast. And great value. I recommend

Worth a 2-week journey as we used the trains a lot. Also it works as a museum pass as well.
