    Milan to Geneva | Leo h. | 2015/07/24
    "We wanted this travel leg of our trip for the scenery - and it didn't disappoint. Every part of the trip was beautiful, vines on the hill sides, mountain views etc. The ticket was delivered well before we left Australia, the train was on time (as usual). Everything was great "

    Easy and Relaxing | Andrea c. | 2015/07/06
    "Travelling in Europe is always a breeze when using the train. There were no delays or mucking around with baggage as I had it with me the whole time and I was able to sit back, relax and even have a little snooze whilst going from one country to another. It really is a great way to see the changing landscape. "

    Geneva to Chamber- Challes | Lawrie w. | 2015/05/29
    "We undertook this trip in late April, and were generally pleased with the trip. However, two issues did cause a little bit of concern. The first was that we were sent to Platform 8 to catch the train; it left from Platform 7. It was also disappointing that we could not book reserved seats for this trip. It was a clean and comfortable trip, and ran punctually. "

    HIgh speed Paris to Geneva | Douglas h. | 2015/02/14
    "We enjoyed our trip on the fast train to Geneva which left on time from Gare du Lyon in Paris. Our seats were clean and comfortable. Our only complaint would be the small amount of bag storage which for a family of 5 from Australia travelling for a month meant our large bags took about 60% of the storage space for the entire car.

    Train Travel in Europe | Maria y. | 2014/12/07
    "Train travel in Europe was excellent. Zurich/Arosa/Zurich. Then, Zurich, Milano, Geneva, Lyon, Dijon, Paris, London. Trains in Switzerland even had phone/lap top chargers available at each seat. Just one minor disappointment; one of my seats was in a spot in the carriage where there was no window. Sometimes the train was high above the platform but I never had difficulty finding someone to help lift my heavy suitcase. "

    "Enjoyed the fast and efficient trip from Gare de Lyon to Geneva. The early morning departure made it possible to get a lot done that day. It certainly was more convenient and cost effective than flying. "

    7 hour Food | Lorna b. | 2014/10/19
    "After booking 1st class tickets, we were looking forward to our trip, which was such a disappointment. We had a 7 hour journey, whilst the seating was very nice, around 1pm went down to dining car only to find out there was no food, the train was then totally packed. So we travelled for 7 hours with no food, only a minute packet of crisps and a bottle of coke, what a joke. Fly instead. "
