  • "happy to use railway"    
    i and my mother-in-law who is 74 years old traveled from lyon to strasbourg by train and back to lyon again. it was wonderful. the only thing, maybe it is me who couldn't get it, although it was said that we could get our online tickets from the machines in the station, i couldn't make it. but thanks to person in the ticket office at gare de la part dieu, he helped a lot, thanks again to him. and also when we got to strasbourg it was late and no tourist information, the person at the ticket info at central gare de strasbourg found a map and helped us to find our hotel, thanks to him. every stuff we asked their help were very nice, system is nice, trains are comfortable. thank you very much for making our journey easy and comfortable. evrim balçık - istanbul - turkey  
  • "Train great, booking not so"    
    We booked the train long in advance. We chose the "Print at Home" option. When we tried to print it initially the website could not be accessed. On contacting RailEurope a .pdf file of the ticket was e-mailed. We printed the .pdf file and all was well except that the Coach and Seat number was printed on top of each other making it illegible. An e-mail to the local agent about the matter stayed un-answered. A phone call to the same person a few weeks later confirmed the correct seat information but no correction of the faulty .pdf file. We were basically told to live with it. We did and the ticket was accepted by TGV  
  • "slow"    
    it takes 2 hr to go from geneve to lyon is too slow using TGV.  
  • "fast"    
    very satisfy  
  • "The only way to fly"    
    Paris to Lyon: TGV is the only way to travel. It is convenient, comfortable, quiet, spacious and reasonably priced. What more can one say?  
    We bought our tickets online before our trip, as it was essential for our itinerary. We had no problems whatsoever. We arrived at CDG airport, and “fairly” easily located the TGV train station. We had our tickets stamped at the ticket office as we bought the TGV tickets with a 5-day France Pass, which we also had validated at the same time. When the train arrived, we located our coach, put our luggage in the back of the coach and located our seats. It was comfortable and clean. Because of the comfort provided, it was a good time to catch up on lost sleep. I’ll do it again for essential trips. It takes the “worry” out of buying tickets and more importantly, if seats will be available.  
  • "Corchevel ski holiday -5 stars"    
    Was an extremely efficient way of travelling to the snow. Was easy although we spoke no French. I had unfortunaely misplaced by boarding passes. Although all seemed hopless for a long while and it appeared we would have to purchase 3 new first class tickets, the manager on that day had organised for replacement tickets at the last minute when boarding the train. This was much appreciated.  
  • "Fairly comfortable"    
    With little signs in english on the train platform it was slightly hard to find my way around, but it was manageable. Trains were comfortable.  
  • "Comfortable trip"    
    The stations and train platforms were easy to find - journey was also very comfortable  
  • "Train trips in Europe- Dec201"    
    Travelled by trains (second class) from Paris to Lyon as well as from Lyon to Geneva during our recent holiday in Europe. Both the journeys were pleasant. Will certainly use the trains to travel within Europe in the future  
  • "Comfortable way to travel"    
    Train is a comfortable way of travelling in France. It's not the cheapest though, but the convenience of leaving from city centre and arriving to Montpellier city centre is definitely worthwhile. Also, I enjoyed the punctuality and the leg room on the seats.  
  • "Thank you"    
    This is my first TGV ride. At first I was overwhelmed by the complexity of the station. Fortunately there were several signs that directed me to the correct platform as well as kind hearted Frenchmen and ladies that offered to provide me with directions. It was definitely a pleasant experience. Thank you very much.  
  • "Convenience"    
    Not so bad. Is quickly  
  • "Track problem delayed us "    
    Bought the ticket for the speed train but had to take a common train due to breakdown of the train track. We missed our connecting train to Milan as a result.  
  • "resume"    
    French, I used to travel by train, the ticket was expensive, but I had no choice. Train on time, good point. But there is not enough space for luggage. From a station at the airport, they know that people have a lot of luggage.
