  • Long trip due to travel k dive | . | 2015/07/10
    "The train was redirected so bypassed Pamplona and added an extra hour to the trip.No forewarning given in English. Only a problem for us because we were travelling with a toddler who wouldn't sleep. Otherwise the trip was good. Nice scenery. "

    Not a high speed train | John a. | 2014/10/03
    "Staff at San Sebastian were very friendly and helpful. Train is a bit slow and takes six hours. However it is comfortable and there were no security issues at San Sebastian. Not particularly scenic but fine all the same. "

    Much better than I expected!! | Kathryn w. | 2014/10/01
    "We were unsure about doing the sleeper train however to fly was going to be so expensive. It was less than half the price to get first class sleeper cabin and I cod not recommend it more. The bunk beds were the most comfortable on our entire trip. It fun and cosy. We read reviews that the food was bad so we ate dinner before boarding and took snacks on. Overall it was a really great experience. Had I known it was so good we might have done it more during our trip. It saves money on flights and a nights accommodation and you don't waste valuable days traveling. It's perfect! "
