  • "Simple and Easy Reservation"    
    Excellent journey - Simple Quick and Easy Reservation, good Value for money.  
  • "TtGV and me"    
    Boarded at Macon at 10:22 and loved every minute of first class reserved seating journey to Nice. Glad there is service from Macon Ville as it is very close to the car rental depot. The track from Marseille to Nice hugs the Mediterranean and offers an entertaining view of the coast. The bar car was nearby and efficiently served the clientele. What a wonderful day for us to see so much of France in such comfort. Thanks raileurope for making the booking process so easy for a novice.  
  • "Great way to Lyon"    
    Three of us were travelling from one conference in Paris to another in Lyon. Travelling by TGV 1st class was fast  
  • "Value for money"    
    I rate my experience 4 stars, very good. The only sour note was the staff member at the ticket counter at Macon Loche was less than helpful. The train was clean and comfortable and staff on the train were most hospitable and helpful. It was a convenient way to get from ML to Paris and seats were comfortable.  
  • "ANDREI"    
    Приятно путешествовать такими поездами и хорошо, что есть возможность покупки билетов через интернет.  
  • "easy travelling"
