- "Americans travel on TGV" Mary c. 27/10/2015
Our trip to Reims was easy
- "Great experience overall. " Josephine h. 18/10/2015
Great experience overall. Just wished that there were more instructions in English for tourists.
- "Vacation to Paris/London" Michelle b. 04/10/2015
I was very pleased with the trip to London from Paris. It was much more pleasant than being forced off to the airport. I enjoyed the scenery, service and the ability to get up and walk around. I would use Eurorail again on a future trip.
- "Excelent Service" Eduardo s. 23/09/2015
The train departed at the Schedule hour and we arrived at Reims in 46 minutes!
- "Paris-Reims TGV" Wayne j. 20/09/2015
We took the TGV from Paris Gare d'Est to Reims for a day trip. It is a fast, clean, efficient way to go. The train system is precisely on time in departing and arriving. It is crazy fast — in 45 minutes it covers the same distance it would take 2.5 hours to travel by car. Tickets can be purchased online in advance, so you are assured of a certain seat and fare class. Or, you can purchase at the station. We purchased in advance and were able to save quite a bit that way, knowing exactly the day and time of our trip. The cars are very clean, modern and comfortable. The trip is very, very smooth. We would certainly use the TGV again without hesitation.
- "Comfortable way into Paris" Geoffrey c. 04/08/2015
Having driven a hire car through parts of France for 7 days we were happy to be driven, the train was clean and very comfortable, and quick (at around 300km) -

- "Jealous American" Frank c. 27/06/2015
We can only wish that the U.S. Would develop such a wonderful rail system an experience. Fast and comfortable.
- "Delightful " Christopher b. 22/05/2015
My wife and I enjoyed the TgV from Reims to Paris in MAy 2015. The service was fast, smooth and comfortable. They only criticism is that there was no luggage bay/shelves so luggage had to be stored in the egress space which was ok. We would definately use it again.
- "Very happy trip" Seng y. 26/04/2015
Train on time. Seats very comfortable and useful power outlet to charge my digital camera. Cabins clean. Would be better to have choice to pick forward looking seats.
- "Day trip to Reims" Kellie j. 13/04/2015
Prebooking TGV from Paris to Reims on Rail Europe was convenient and allowed ample time to go on tours and explore the city. The only challenge was the print at station instructions had changed but that was quickly rectified. Would definitely use Rail Europe again.
- "terrific way to get around " Jenna d. 23/11/2014
Took the high speed train from Paris to Reims for the day and it was wonderful. Had a first class seat which was very roomy. The train was very smooth, quick, efficient. Would definitely take it again while in Europe.
- "comfortable and fun" Yicheng c. 20/10/2014

- "So convenient" Aaron b. 18/09/2014
Took a day trip to Reims from Paris. Train travel is so much easier than flying. Rolled up 15 minutes before. Tons of leg room in 1st class. Super clean. Fantastic views of the french countryside and made a 200km trip in 45 minutes.
