Reviews & ratings Paris - Zurich
"Travel as it should be"Dympna s. 30/10/2015
After difficulty trying to locate the correct platform at Gare de Lyon, this journey was a lovely way to move from Paris to Zurich. The train was very clean and comfortable and on time. Very relaxing. We made time for lunch at Le Train Bleu at Gare de Lyon, this was a highlight of several weeks travel.
"Easy train travel"Judith s. 05/08/2015
This train journey was terrific. We had first class seats and they were very comfortable with plenty of room for luggage. We were also served a very tasty lunch. All in all a good fast trip.
"Good way to travel "Jennifer m. 31/05/2015
We enjoyed the trip from Zurich to Paris . The trip was smooth and the staff were pleasant. We would have liked more control over our see seat reservations when planning the trip. Also the food was adequate but not outstanding considering we were in first class. Overall it was a good trip and a goo way to see a litt French countryside.
"Zurich to Paris TGV Lyria"Barry s. 19/05/2015
Very comfortable train, good service. Some luggage space at one end of carriage but has overhead racks if you want to keep your bags within sight. At Zurich station (as with most major European stations) the platform has waiting points ABCD etc, these correspond to the electronic platform signs to show the point at which you wait for your carriage. Some people were a little confused with carriage identification and the location of the seat numbering and reservation. Carriage numbers and train details are on a small LED/LCD display panel on the side of each carriage near the doors. The seat numbers are on the seat shoulder, not above the seat with reservations marked on a red card above the window. Arriving into Gare Lyon was ok but trying to transfer to Paris Nord via the RER wasn't the best experience. Poor signage an issue.
"Paris-Strasbourg"Barry g. 01/05/2015
Train was spot on time and very comfortable. As hubby and I had prebooked reserved tickets even our seats were labeled with our names to ensure no other passengers were in our allocated seats. The only down side of train travel is the limited luggage space at the ends of each carrage.
"pleasant trip great scenery"Tracy Jane t. 25/03/2015
this trip was on time and comfortable nothing to complain about.
"Connection"Gary w. 29/01/2015
Our train was an hour late into Paris Gare Lyon. Luckily, I had given myself a couple of hours between connections. Maybe something to consider when planning.
"Great trip"Gary w. 29/01/2015
Plenty to see and the refreshments help pass the time away.
"Train travel made easier"Carol m. 11/01/2015
Booking through raileurope before we left made train travel less stressful. Seats were booked, thankfully, as the trains were quite full. Facilities on board were good as well
Not bad but not too exciting. First class carriage, but second class facilities.
"Enjoyable"Dianne h. 28/11/2014
Highly enjoyable and stress free trip. Much better than air travel and lovely to see the scenery going by

"excellent train"Lorraine g. 24/10/2014
Very fast and comfortable train, really enjoyed the trip to Zuerich, train staff helpful advised us the time and platform for our ongoing trip to Chur, enabling us to catch an earlier train, which gave us extra time in Chur.
"Good"Ngaire b. 22/10/2014
We had a good uneventful trip from Zurich/Paris. There were porters in Paris the 1st we had seen on all of our train trips. It was a refreshing change.
"Hassle free travel"Jennifer e. 21/10/2014
