It's been a while since I've been on the boards. I've been considering a trip through the Golden Pass in Switzerland, on their panoramic trains. I wasn't able to find much discussion on that here. If anyone has any recommendations on tour operators on the trip or suggestions? Thanks!

There are different Golden Pass train tour available.
The classic one runs from Interlakent to Montreux and cross the small towns of Zweisimmen and Spiez. For this itinerary you can choose among a panoramic and modern train or a vintage train inspired to Golden Mountain Pullman Express from the 1930s, a luxury train in the style of Orient Express.
Indeed, you can also take part on a longer train tour, which stops also in Spiez, Martigny, Montreux and Brig.
Regardless of your choice, I suggest you to arrange your tour during spring or summer, because the views from the train are breathtaking during this period: lakes, mountains, small towns and many coloured flowers! During winter the landscape is monotonous and many details are covered by snow!
You can find more information on the official website of Swiss Pass, following the Swiss Classic Rail Journeys link.
