I’m confused

Question about the Swiss Mountain Pacakges and Swiss Pass.

I am very confuse with what covers what when buying a Swiss Pass and one of the tours that are offered through Euro Rail, let's say if I buy the "Peaks of the World" tour and have a Swiss pass will I be loosing money by buying the Swiss Pass since the tour cover some of the train transportation? Also, are these tours one way? Many things are not clear on the website and the telephone, I you can find a #, takes for ever to be answered, it makes you wonder how efficient the system is.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

  • Does anyone have experience with Swiss rail tours? I'm looking at the Swiss Mountain Peaks tour. How are the hotels?
