    Great TGV trip to Brittany |
    "Our recent trip from Paris to Brittany via the TGV rail service was straight forward from beginning to end! The booking through Raileurope was easy, the cost of the fare very good and the train ran schedule so we thoroughly recommend this as a great way to travel across France AND see the French countryside at the same time!

    "Travel in 1st class on TGV is a pleasure. Comfortable, good buffet facilities but above all speed of journey is fantastic. French TGV trains are amazing-if only Australia would bite the bullet and invest in same we would be so much better off! "
