Reviews & ratings St Pierre des corps - Paris
Hi, we trained around France and the service was excellent. The on time departure and seating comfort was great. Booking on line and buying tickets at the Gares was easy. Will use train again when we go back next year. regards Graham
The train journey is easy, quick and comfortable. The hassles are at each end - long walks to the carriage and only one small lift at St.Pierre des Corps to go from the platform to the exit. Look for the carriage numbers at the end of each carriage on small panels near the doors; otherwise you have no idea of where you need to hop on.
Trains are in very good condition, 2nd class was perfectly adequate - A/C, nice and clean, comfortable, plenty of room. I travelled from one side of France to the other - with very many train changes, and it went very well. There was always room for my suitcase very near to me so I could keep an eye on it. The train numbers, routes, platforms etc were easy to understand, and extremely efficient. All ran on time to the minute. Specific hints - * in some of the very small stations there wasn't always the big yellow ticket collection machines that I could print off my tickets from (but these were easy to find in the larger stations), so in this case I made sure I had all my booking info in case I was asked. * When getting onto any train - you have to "validate" your ticket by sticking it into any of the green or yellow machines which time stamps the ticket. These are in the main train ticket area and on some platforms. I was delighted with all my train travel throughout France.
More English signs would be helpful. Toilet facilities at St Pierre appeared to be very limited.
The train was comfortable and clean. It was a convenient way to travel.
We think that high speed trains are a great way to travel as most of the hassle associated with air travel (security, travel to airports, queues etc) is avoided. However there needs to be more provision in the carriages for suitcases. We had some difficulty finding places to store our luggage on some trips - fortunately not this one.
The train is the best means of travel across Europe for fast,comfortable,clean and safe transport. It usually departs and leaves on time, has the benefit of conductors both on the platform and on board, and you can buy refreshments from the mobile trolley or cafe carriage. Any delays are mostly due to human cause.
The train system is so easy! We took a trip from Tours to Paris. Left our hire car at Tours and hopped the train. There was a lift at the platform so no need to lug our suitcases up stairs. We had a confirmed seat number so,settled in for the ride. Seats were comfortable, journey was quick and very inexpensive, and very clean. Why drive into a big city if you can take the train in comfort.
I caught the TGV from Paris-Tour return for a weekend to visit family in the Loire Valley. From booking online in Australia, to receipt of my online tickets, printing out at home to catching the train at Montparnasse, the trip was flawless. The TGV was very comfortable, quiet and smooth. It was a speedy trip, leaving and arriving on time. It is a great way to travel. And it was the same for the return trip! If only the Australian Governments would bite the bullet and commit to such a level of train travel, then so many cars would be taken off the road, there would be huge savings in energy and lives, and it would bring Australia much closer together. I have used TGVs for years and it is the best way to travel within France. Viva la France!
A nice way to see the county side. Train was clean and on time.
The trip was pleasant without any problems.
2nd class ticket, about 2 hours which was comfortable as the train was not full.
The TGV is never going to let you down and got us to our destination (CDG) on time after about a 90 minute ride. I think it is great, but at Euro 54 per person, it felt overpriced.
Unsure which station to get off at for Orleans, as there were two stations with the name 'Orleans' in it. Had we paniced when we saw the first station name, then we would have gotten off the train at the wrong stop and missed our connecting train. Luckily and quick check with a local traveller sorted us out.
