    TGV - PARIS TO ANNECY | Ronda m. | 2015/11/06
    "I have travelled this route many times on the TGV - First Class and the journey is around 4 to 4.5 hours for the direct train option. A very comfortable trip and up to TGV Standard - departed on time, arrived on time. The improvements to City of Annecy Railway Station were much needed and have been very well done. Looking forward to my next trip to this wonderful Region of Eastern France. "

    "Have used this service on earlier trips and it lived up toexpectations this time as well. On time service was important as we had to make a connection in Part Dieu, this worked to perfection with minutes to spare. "

    Paris to Annecy | Margaret d. | 2015/04/21
    "The train trip from Paris to Annecy takes four hours and is a great way to see the French countryside. Train travel in Europe is quite expensive and there were no available discounts for this journey. However the train is comfortable and a generally pleasant way to get around. It is easier than transits to and from airports but quite difficult managing luggage through the Paris metro as well as on and off the train itself. There certainly is not sufficient room to hold suitcases even in a first class carriage. "

    Pleasant trip to Annecy | Dianne d. | 2014/10/17
    "I found Rail Europe really easy to use online and so handy to be able to print my own tickets. Also the customer service was very good and prompt when I had a query regarding the PDF print out of my ticket. The TGV is a great way to travel. I went from Paris to Annecy in about 3-3.5hrs. The only reason I have given less stars for Value for money, was because it said online that First Class had USB's in the carriages and a meal/drink. This was not true, either on the way or way back. This wouldn't have bothered me, but I was expecting it, so it's disappointing if you expect to be able to charge your phone or use your tablet. Also I was starving but kept waiting for the meal to appear :). The carriages/coach numbers are a bit confusing too/don't match up, but this is probably TGV's area.They are minor points though, overall, a very easy and pleasant experience. "
