Swiss Alps trip

Hi all, possibly organising a trip to the Swiss Alps for 4 days next summer, for some friends and I. We'll probably drive down in two cars, so won't have the worry and faff of bike boxes airports and transfers either end.

I think the western side of the country looks really good; we have all ridden the Stelvio so new ground for us all makes sense.
I've driven over the Gotthard Pass quite often, but haven't ridden the Gotthard (Tremola) road, which would be a must for me, even without the loop that includes the Furka and Nufenen passes. If we stayed in Andermatt, that would be possible, along with the Grimsel-Gotthard-Susten loop, and maybe the Lago di Naret climb or the Klausen Pass and Oberalp.

I would also like to ride Grosse Scheidegg and Col du Sanetsch, but I think both would involve driving to them, or maybe staying nearer them for a night or two.

Does anyone have experience of Switzerland, could suggest routes or places to stay?
