Itinerary feedback please!

itinerary feedback please. We will travel to Switzerland in Aug. 2013. This is my thought: Arrive Zurich-train to Thun for one night, train to Zermatt stay 3 nights, train to Chamonix stay 3 nights back to Zurich to fly home. IDEAS Please!! We will not rent a car.

Just one night in Thun - skip it or stay another night there to explore a little part of the Bernese Oberland.

Best idea is get the Swiss Passes, which are not chead but good value. 8 days cost about 220 euro. That gives you travel all over Switzerland, on trains, buses, trams and the cruise ships which are on several of the large lakes. Also covers you from the Airport. You could stay in Zurich and reach anywhere in 2.5 hours. But ideally Zurich is a good base to visit, St Gallen. Bern, Romanshorn, Basle, even Interlakken. Also you could go on a long trip to St. Moritz. Lucerne is also only an hour from Zurich. if you visit Lucerne you can go on a fantasitc steam Cruiser on the lake. Then go up a cogwheel railway to the top of Mt Rigi. All included in the Swiss Pass. Also from Lucerne you can go on a train up to Engelberg a mountain resort or a trip to Interlakken over the mountains.

You could slso base yourself in Interlakken and visit the Bernese Oberland, several interesting trips there. Also go on a longish trip over the mountains to Montreaux. Your choice of trips is almost endless. Each canton or region is better than the last. Also try going to the Appenzell region . Zermatt is another place to visit, if a long trip.

Accommodation is expensive so be prepared and food can be expensive too.
