Customer reviews

  • "Milan to Geneva"    
    We wanted this travel leg of our trip for the scenery - and it didn't disappoint. Every part of the trip was beautiful, vines on the hill sides, mountain views etc. The ticket was delivered well before we left Australia, the train was on time (as usual). Everything was great  
  • "Easy and Relaxing"    
    Travelling in Europe is always a breeze when using the train. There were no delays or mucking around with baggage as I had it with me the whole time and I was able to sit back, relax and even have a little snooze whilst going from one country to another. It really is a great way to see the changing landscape.  
  • "Relaxing and comfortable"    
    Lovely relaxing train ride with good service. Perfect way to travel. Great views, nice lunch and arrived to our destination on time!  
  • "Geneva to Chamber- Challes"    
    We undertook this trip in late April, and were generally pleased with the trip. However, two issues did cause a little bit of concern. The first was that we were sent to Platform 8 to catch the train; it left from Platform 7. It was also disappointing that we could not book reserved seats for this trip. It was a clean and comfortable trip, and ran punctually.  
  • "Paris to geneva"    
    Train was very comfy and trip very smooth. No problems at all.  
  • "HIgh speed Paris to Geneva"    
    We enjoyed our trip on the fast train to Geneva which left on time from Gare du Lyon in Paris. Our seats were clean and comfortable. Our only complaint would be the small amount of bag storage which for a family of 5 from Australia travelling for a month meant our large bags took about 60% of the storage space for the entire car.  
  • "Train Travel in Europe"    
    Train travel in Europe was excellent. Zurich/Arosa/Zurich. Then, Zurich, Milano, Geneva, Lyon, Dijon, Paris, London. Trains in Switzerland even had phone/lap top chargers available at each seat. Just one minor disappointment; one of my seats was in a spot in the carriage where there was no window. Sometimes the train was high above the platform but I never had difficulty finding someone to help lift my heavy suitcase.  
  • "Journey continues in comfort"    
    Having arrived in Bern on time we then changed trains to go to Geneva. Easy tranfer by changing platforms. Bern to Geneva was very picturesque in areas. Geneva station central and we walked to our hotel.  
  • "Quick "    
    Enjoyed the fast and efficient trip from Gare de Lyon to Geneva. The early morning departure made it possible to get a lot done that day. It certainly was more convenient and cost effective than flying.  
  • "7 hour trip...no Food"    
    After booking 1st class tickets, we were looking forward to our trip, which was such a disappointment. We had a 7 hour journey, whilst the seating was very nice, around 1pm went down to dining car only to find out there was no food, the train was then totally packed. So we travelled for 7 hours with no food, only a minute packet of crisps and a bottle of coke, what a joke. Fly instead.  
  • "Australian Traveller"    
    The trip was fast comfortable and convenient. We had issues with our cabin luggage, there was insufficient room to store it. We had great difficulty in putting it on board and getting it off. It clouded an otherwise comfortable trip. We expected to receive a meal, we didn't receive one.  
  • "Great service. pity about bus"    
    I was really impressed with the service after the long and tedious bus trip from Geneva to Bellegarde-sur-Valserine due to track works. The staff were very apologetic and incredibly helpful. The free fruit and cold water helped compensate for the inconvenience. After that the TGV trip was amazingly pleasant. A great way to travel.  
  • "Travel Nice to Geneva"    
    There was nothing wrong with the trip. However, the system of not announcing the platform but 10 mins before the train leaves is highly annoying, especially as the waiting area / hall in Nice is terrible and not suited for any traveler - not enough seating available, in addition to the smell of cigarettes everywhere because they smoke directly in front of the entrance to the waiting hall - 'everyone' seems to smoke in France!  
  • "Good Trip"    
    it overall was a great trip - only challenge was the printing of the ticket, the carriage and seat number over ran each other and I wasn't sure where I was meant to sit....
