plz help me select the pass

Hello
We travel may first week and reach to Basel euro airport by10am and stay at manor then form. Two adults.
There is not much price difference between Basel to bern or Basel to thun . So I thought apart from Basel to bern , Bernese Oberland pass covers bern,luzern, Interlaken areas. I also mentioned we would like to travel for six days. It seems the price difference to Swiss pass for 8 days is more than bernese Oberland pass six days.

Whether using Swiss travel pass or bo pass, can we travel many times on same route / train. Coz I read, we need to spend full day to travel jungfrau, in that case, we might have to go trummelbach falls on next day and to first mountain cable car another day via grindlewald.


Whether actual fare for two adults to and back from Basel to bern and Bernese Oberland pass work out well?

Here is my itinerary for six days
Day 1
Basel to Luzern with actual fare for two adults and from Luzern bo pass works by 2 pm so visit to lion monument and kapell bridge and travel to manor form thun
Day 2
Boat trip from lake thun St mt caves, bus trip to beaterns burg, cable trip to niederhorn
Day 3
Jungfrau ascending one way and descending from other way whether visit to trummelbach falls can be done along with jungfrau trip?
Day 4
Trummelbach falls , harder kulm I read both takes half day only.
Day 5
First mountain via grindlewald and interlaken local or heimweighflue or alpine garden
Day 6
Return from manor form thun to bern in the morning visit to bear park, Rosen garden and in the afternoon start to basel for catching 9 pm flight. Here we pay actual fare for two adults from bern to Basel

Plz make sure between day two to day five all train bus boat fares covered by bernse Oberland pass?
For two adults travelling together all the time two seperate adult pass needed to buy for either Swiss travel pass or Bernese Oberland pass? Am I correct?

Your answer to each of my question helps a lot to me. Thank you.

It seems that the Berner Oberland Pass may be best for you - covers a lot lot more than a Swiss Pass, which covers a lot in the B.O. but not the Schilthorn, etc - not sure BO pass covers that in full so also check out the Jungfraubahnpass - not as wide ranging but covers more things in full in the area you are dwelling on I think.

Check these sites for lots about Swiss trains and passes with lots on the Jungfrau Region: www.swisstravelsystem.com; www.budgeteuropetravel.com and www.ricksteves.com.

Not sure about B O Pass but the Swiss Pass comes in a Saverpass - two to five names on one pass at a discount over two solo passes.

For Basel to Bern try www.sbb.ch for discounted tickets that however have restrictions on changes for the exact train it is bought for and are sold in limited numbers (not nearly as viable or as many routinely available as in other countries however).
