- "Dirty" Ana s. 10/01/2014
I think the train was a little bit dirty (the tables, the seats...). For such a journey (a tgv train) and for what we paid, I think there should be more attention to that details.
- "First experience was excellent" Marion r. 12/11/2013
First time on the fast train and I liked it. Very comfortable. Personnel were very helpful.
- "Lux to Paris" Kenneth b. 07/07/2013
Fine, the trip was pleasant, quick and reasonably comfortable. For first time users the carriage numbers were hard to see and we didn't know which end of the train our carriage would be so we had to really hurry to get to it and get on with heavy cases.

Wifi is payable on board which should be free.
- "Very good" Benjamin e. 14/06/2013
The trip was comfortable and the train was ontime. One suggestion — the coffee was not so good. I think you should buy at Netspresso machine.
- "a good experience" David m. 23/05/2013
Everything went smoothly. The train was on time, it was comfortable, and the transfer from Paris Est to St Lazare station for our connecting flight was made easy by excellent signage.
- "Great Trip" . 09/05/2013
The TGV was easy to find, access and travel on. We were really happy with the trip.
