Reviews & ratings Paris - Lyon
We travelled from Paris to Lyon in first class. After 20 hours of flying we were very pleased to have purchased first class tickets. It was a very enjoyed journey. Highly recommended way to travel.
We caught the train from Lyon to Paris and it was a lovely way to travel. We bought 1st class, and was a little surprised there was no food but it was very comfortable and a nice way to travel (ie you get the sight see a little as you commute).
This was a very efficient, affordable and comfortable way (seated in first class) to travel from Paris to Lyon and see some of the country side which we wouldn't have seen from a plane.
great way of getting to your destination, the seats were very comfortable, carriage nice and quiet and the train was on time.
We enjoy European train travel. The trains are clean, comfortable and reliable. The booking process was easy. We will travel by train again when next in Europe.
After 10 days of travelling France and watching vehicle traffic, I made the decision to cancel the booked hire car and travel by train from Lyon to Paris. I booked on line and had confirmation within 2 hours with the Print@ Station ticket option. Process was painless andshortcut the long queues at the ticket office. Less than 2.5 hours after printing my ticket in Lyon, I was off the train and into a taxi in Paris. A great way to travel for a stress free holiday.
I spent a great day in Paris on a daytrip from Lyon. It was so easy to access the TGV using the metro networks in both Paris and Lyon, making the entire journey a pleasure to experience.
We took six train trips in September 2013, a mixture of first and second class tickets. The train journeys were very enjoyable. It was far less stressful than driving while following GPS directions and watching for road signs in French. The only negatives were the last minute posting of the platform number for the train and the confusing order of the carriages. Sometimes the carriage number signs on the carriages did not match the signs on the platform display. Both these contribute to a free-for-all rush carrying luggage up and down stairs.
On time, very comfortable and able to work easily
the train could be in better conditions ie seats were not as well kept. outside of the train was dirty making it hard to see outside the window.
Trip was on time. In all of our train trips in France we were allocated seats facing towards the rear of the train and with restricted window space. Which was annoying and disappointing. We felt that the worse seats on the train were allocated to overseas bookings. However it is a very economical and quick way to travel. There is barely enough space for suitcases and we were travelling off peak so must be very difficult when trams are full.
We had the tickets, but I was concerned that I had to do more with them, get them stamped or something, but information told me I was good to just board and use them. With these trains, you just wait in the area near the platforms (voies) and wait until the boards show which one your train will board from. Then there is a mad rush as everyone heads down a platform and onto a train. If you're coach 12, that can be a long way down the platform. Good smooth travel, quiet and fast.
I was impressed at the comfort and ease at using the train across France.
The trip was only a couple of hours. Safe, comfortable, clean and on time. Great value for money. Beats driving hands down.
This was our first trip via train in Europe we found it comfortable and relaxing. only negative was lugging our luggage up the stairs as we were seated upstairs and travellers seem to want to push and shove a bit .
