    "Having arived at Paris CDG airport and finding the TGV I found trying to find the apropreat carrage to get on very difficult. It is a long train and I had a 1st class ticket. the train had no obvious sinage as to which carrage and where luggage should go. With a large bike bag and short time frames it was very frustrating. I almost missed the train and had to throw the bag on board and hope for the best. "

    To Grenoble in Comfort. |
    "My wife and I recently travelled to Grenoble on the TGV for the first time as overseas visitors. We were very impressed with the overall experience. Once the Gare Paris Lyon is located and understood, everything pretty much falls into place. Plenty of room for luggage, friendly staff and decent seating arrangements are very welcoming. The bar carriage was very reasonable and well stocked. The train even arrived at it's destination dead on time. A very good way to get around the country on a budget and in quick time. "
