Holidaying in Europe with my two sisters and elderly mother we travelled on the Palm Express Post Bus from St Moritz to Lugano in Switzerland. It was a magnificent bus trip. It is only the local bus line and not a coach tour as such. The driver though, gave a running commentary throughout the journey in English which we we... More

To get to Lugano the bus drives about 130 Kilometers through Italy (take your passport with you!). There is... More

But unfortunately, he couldn't communicate to... More

Our bus-driver was a Very cheerful person and he provided commentary as we passed through the different areas. Only thing is, he didn't speak English! We were sitting on the left-hand side of the bus... More

This is a convenient way to travel from St Moritz to Lugano. The bus drive is comfortable, and scenic if you can manage to get the front seats. A reservation is recommended. The ride goes through mountains, and then by the coastline, up narrow roads into the mountains again, and Italian villa styled architecture. Bus has a rest area stop... More
