Customer reviews

  • "Very comfortable trip"    
    Enjoyed to trip from Lyon to Paris .. very comfortable and everything ran to time.  
  • "Wonderful train service"    
    The TGV service is excellent. From the arrival at the station, to the taking of our seats on the train, through the full extent of the train trip, to terminating the trip at our destination station - all stages were excellent.  
  • "Love train travel"    
    Service on time lots of room and just so easy love European train travel.  
  • "TGV to Lyon from Nancy"    
    No problems for the section of the trip. Train on time and servcie excellent.  
  • "a good trip"    
    this trip was good, and comfortable. the location of the Paris CDG station is great for a relatively quick transfer.  
  • "Very Acceptable"    
    Smooth, comfortable and on time, but the connection for our ongoing trip to Paris was tight - we only made it by a few minutes. The only downside was the fact that to access the platform at Carcassone we had to go up and down flights of stairs which with heavy luggage and at our age (77) was an ordeal. This is a real problem with all French stations and the Paris Metro - something must be done, it is unacceptable.  
  • "Great Trip"    
    This was a local transfer to get to the fast train. All went well, platform easy to find, train left on time. Only thing to be aware of is there are three steps to get on the train. Can be tricky with bags by yourself.  
  • "Great Train"    
    This is a fast train  
  • "Train travel"    
    All our train trips were great.First class worth the money. Everything also written and spoken in English. Would travel by train again.  
  • "Homeward bound"    
    We had a lovely relaxing trip . It is extremely easy and once you have your luggage onboard the only thing to do it read a book, or iPad etc. Power is on hand and the coach is lovely and clean.  
  • "PARIS TO LYON ON THE TGV"    
    Due to the history of European railways they ensure the first class traveller on a Eurail pass has an enjoyable and comfortable journey utilising modern trains with very good service. The larger stations ensure that the non French speakers can locate their connections. The journey allowed our family to view the French countryside at ground level and thus we will probably use RailEurope for further trips abroad.  
  • "A pleasant trip in the country"    
    I love the TGV fast trains, as they are so efficient and comfortable to travel distances within France and beyond. Our trip from Nimes to Lyon was pleasant, and ran on time.  
  • "Rail trip to Paris "    
    Fast and efficient, very comfortable, with dinning car a great facility  
  • "Rail trip to Annecy"    
    Good value, convenient site of station and timetable  
  • "Convenient"    
    Suited our needs at the time and was a good quick trip.
