Overall rating

4.7 / 5

based on 144 reviews

The Swiss pass is really helpful when travelling in Switzerland. However, it’s recommended that GetYourGuide provides updates on what’s required. As we were not able to board the glacier express since we didn’t have the Switzerland covid certificate, whereas we were allowed to enter the country, board local trains and dine in restaurants with the certificate issued from our country.

Easy to use. You can use it on trains trams and buses.

Such a breeze to have this pass! Highly Recommended!
