  • "To Paris"    
    Stairs are always a problem getting to train. However the train ride was great, good comfort and quick travel— was relaxing. Thanks Wish we had this in the US  
  • "Smooth transfers and on time"    
    Train transfer from Paris went smoothly and enjoyed the ride.  
  • "Travel by Train - it’s great"    
    Excellent, efficient way to travel in Europe. Great connections and good value for money. Especially recommended for people travelling with only a 20 inch (European size limit) carry on bag. Large suitcases don't fit well and are a hindrance to everyone.  
  • "ok"    
    Nice  
  • "Running for the TGV"    
    The biggest problem is that the platform the train will arrive at is shown on the board only 15 minutes before the train's scheduled departure. This makes it difficult for the elderly to reach the platform in time - especially if they have heavy suitcases. The TGV has lost all appearance of glamour. It needs a make-over.
