  • "Quick and easy"    
    The first class seat was a little cramped as I could not stretch my legs out or I would touch the man sitting opposite. Otherwise, the train was clean, fast and efficient.  
  • "The Best Way To Travel"    
    We travelled the 2 hours from Bordeaux to Toulouse via TGV and we could not believe how easy and quick it was. It stopped 3 times but we barely noticed. We sat 1st class with reserved seats and it was perfect. Our cabin was quiet and we were able to rest, read, and enjoy the beautiful French country side.  
  • "Second Leg"    
    All on time, all good  
  • "Train by night"    
    Comfortable and safe journey from Paris to Toulouse. I can really recommend it!  
  • "Train by day"    
    Very comfortable seats.  
  • "Homeward bound"    
    We enjoyed travelling on the train and would recommended it as a great way to travel on holiday, it was very relaxing, the trains were comfortable and always on time.  
  • "Journey to lourdes"    
    The trip itself was comfortable. The staff member ( lady) who helped us at the Montparnasse ticket station attended to our needs with utmost detail and patience when we needed to change a schedule on the return trip and booking for a car rental. The trip was delYed but they totally made up for the delay and made sure we were able to catch the connecting train to Lourdes on time. The only problem was there were no signages on the tracks to guide the passengers. A lot of confusion took place transferring from 1 coach to the other bearing the same coach and seat no. Conductors helped but some were confused too.  
  • "Tight connection"    
    Good Morning, thank you for the opportunity to write about my journey. Overall my experience was very good but some things caused stress. This is my first time travelling in France and travelling to Gaillac. I do not speak French and did not understand that there were two trains leaving about the same time; initially I got onto the wrong train - silly me; many of the carriages were in darkness and passengers had to use their phones as torches, rail staff were not in evidence to help. Confused I got off the train and eventually found staff I could ask for directions. They were polite, helpful and directed me to the correct train. The train was very comfortable, the food good and my journey was most enjoyable. We were 4 minutes late arriving in Toulouse and the connection between train to Albi only about 15 minutes. Realising the problem, I was almost first off the train, I rushed to the station and to my surprise there were three young, information people on the platform. They instantly realised the problem and immediately directed me to my connection. The Albi train was packed full, initially I couldn't get on but eventually some passengers moved just enough for me to squeeze into a foyer. I arrived in Gaillac on schedule, my friend was waiting. Without the information help at Toulouse I could not have made the connection, it was too tight and my friend would have been very inconvenienced. Thank you, Ken Adams  
  • "Easy travel, but not too cheap"    
    The trains from Toulouse to Cahors is one of the only modesign of transportation available. Not exactly cheap, but fast and reliable. Seats are comfortable, plenty of room for luggage. If no ride shares really available, it is a good fallback option.  
  • "Another great TGV experience"    
    5 hours 29 minutes of relaxing pleasure. Very efficient, punctual, quality seating, food and beverages.  
  • "Great train trip. "    
    Excellent experience very friendly staff. Always a pleasure. Train was on time and clean.  
  • "Fabulous French Trains II"    
    I love train travel in France! It has been my experience that the trains are consistently convenient, comfortable and dependable! It's so nice to just relax, look out the window and enjoy the landscape. Thanks for a great trip! Bonnie Davis Dallas, Texas  
  • "Great and easy way to travel"    
    The train was quiet and comfortable (: Very easy to travel with RailEurope and if you book in advance you get great prices too!  
  • "Toulouse-Lourdes"    
    Very good experience: well organized, quick answer and clear explanations, excellent service. Thanks! Antonella  
  • "Low Information Terminal !!"    
    The train was clean and in good shape, the meal was good, staff was very friendly and helpful. The Paris Montparnasse station, though, lacks sufficient directions and signs for someone new to France and to the train station to find their way to the proper exit to get a cab to one's destination. We were burdened with luggage and completely lost with literally no one in sight and no signs leading to anywhere until someone on duty left his assigned area to show us where we needed to go, for which we were very grateful. Seeing the trains running regularly even in rural small towns made us aware of how advanced France is in supporting people everywhere compared to the US, where rural people are left to their own devices. Thanks!
