"Madrid to Barcelona by train"

  Peter w. 
An excellent way to get from Madrid to Barcelona or vice versa. Clean, comfortable and well priced method of transport. Departed and arrived on time with booked seats it is definitely the way to travel in Spain and I would certainly book it again.  

"TGV is much better than plane"

  Anthony r.  28/10/2014
Thoroughly enjoyed the experience of traveling by high speed train (TGV) from Paris to Barcelona. The train was clean, comfortable, very quiet, the large club seats are much more comfortable than poky airline seats  

"Madrid Barcelona Transfer"

  Phillip m.  24/10/2014
Took the fast train Madrid Barcelona, train left and arrived on time, it was no hassle travel without the "airport stress". I recommend the rail service.

"Connecting to Barcelona from "

  David w.  19/10/2013
Make sure you have pre-booked a seat. There were a lot of people at the station hoping to catch this train - they were disappointed  

"Seville to Barcelona by train"

  David w.  13/10/2013
This train was clean and travelled smoothly. The seat was comfortable with plenty of room. The advantage for me was that I could watch the scenery, without the hassles of finding my way. Despite being a long journey, I could wander down to the cafeteria car whenever I needed to stretch my legs. I would definitely travel this way again.  

"Faultless trip"

  David a.  29/09/2013
Our travel from Seville to Barcelona, Spain was extremely comfortable. Train left and arrived on time to the minute. Facilities were also very good, and the train was quite new and clean.  

"A comfortable way to travel"

  Andrew c.  25/09/2013
I travelled from Barcelona to Valencia on the fast train. It was very comfortable and connected to the metro at each end. Although at Valencia you need to take a shuttle bus to the north station or walk 500 meters to the metro. The signage was not too good but google maps helped
