Super handy and value deal. I have bought 8 days pass and it was the best decision I took as I have done 16 cities, 4 peaks and 2 lakes on my 9 day trip to Switzerland. Just bought it here and they will send you an e-pass with code which you can show every time you travel. Pretty handy. Absolutely recommend it.

Roger our driver guide was fantastic. so was the tranportation provided was better than my expectation. Overall it was an excellent tour to beautiful Swiss Riviera landscape and promenade, as well as to the Chaplin's world.

Excellent, I was able to take 3 of the 4 panoramic trains, cable cars, buses, metro, normal trains, it ended up paying for itself, Switzerland is quite expensive so it is very convenient

Brilliant. If you are going to change cities, it is an excellent option. Why you will save a lot of money.

We loved everything, the wonderful shipping, it's worth buying.
