It's just a bus ride and the guide pays for your train ticket once you get to a town half way up the mountain, and then he leaves. We didn't know until we got on the bus that there are multiple ticket options for this trip, and you only get to be with the guide if you update to the more expensive ticket option (with cash) once you get on the bus. Additionally we didn't know that the train ticket they provide doesn't take you to the top of the mountain unless you pay in cash for the upgraded ticket. I would recommend just using the SBB app and navigating public transport that way, it will save you a lot of money!
