Reviews & ratings Paris - Nice
The ride was fairly comfortable but for the same price, we could have travelled by air and save 4 hours of transit. We have accidentally booked a normal ticket and called up almost immediately after the online purchase hoping to pay for the price difference to upgrade to first class. We were told this is not possible as the ticket is restricted. While it makes sense to disallow cancellation on discounted tickets, why not allowing upgrade when clients are happy to pay for the price differences?
We had been delayed for 2 hours from Paris to Marseille due to bad weather. SNFC compensated us a supplement box which contains some food.
We enjoyed the push from Nice riding between the sea and mountains and onto wine countryside. However the ride turned out to be too long for us. We ll probably fly when train is longer than 3 hours. TGV was fast and efficient. Food choice was limited. Class 2 upper level sitting was comfy.
It was easy to find the seats, the entire ride was extremely comfortable. Recommended!
nice ville station was a total disgrace with no escalators and construction work everywhere. very difficult to find a taxi and then extremely expensive.
very good fast trip
Our trip from Paris to Nice was memorable - easy and fuss free and most of all comfortable! It would be good to be given more time to board though because of the crowd and people were pushing and rushing especially those with big suitcases to get on! Way to go to see the countryside.
My journey from Nice to Paris can be termed as an average experience for the following reasons. 1/ We were two couples who were given different coupes. 2. The coach conductor was very rude. When by mistake we closed the middle berth , he would refuse to open it. He made some racial comments such as asking 'where are you coming from". 3. There were many passengers with no reservation who were standing outside the cabins.
The trip was fine all things considered...I have no complaints about the comfort or ease of travel...as an English speaking person there were no problems figuring out trains or times etc....I had read about great scenery but did not find it as inspiring as I had hoped...I have heard you can get a flight for about the same price so if that is true I would consider that as a better option if you have limited time.
We really enjoyed our trip from Paris to Nice by TGV.It was comfortable.
The trip was a little bit boring adding a TV screen will make the trip more enjoyable.
We were non french speaking tourists. Finding the platform was ok as the information office people spoke english. Finding the correct carriage was hopeless. We got to number 1 carriage but there were 3 number one carriages with our seat numbers and no one to explain the system. Extremely difficult to get our 23kg suitcases up to our seats on the top level. We had been told there would be wifi on board but there wasnt. The seats were very comfortable with plenty of leg room. The view was great except for all the grafitti at the back of buildings. A clean up by the relevant coucils would be a good idea.
Perfect way to travel France. Extremely comfortable and easy.
I read somewhere that TGV first class included a free meal (dinner). So I boarded the train empty stomached. To my surprise, no complimentary meal was served.
It's a good choice for traveling to Nice without flight. We would choose this again for next trip
