  • "Travel London to Saumur "    
    Travel was largely smooth and comfortable. Original booking allowed 65 minutes between arrival at Gare de Nord and departure from Montparnasse which was not enough. We were obliged to change our Paris departure to Saumur trip at significant additional cost which was unfortunate and not entirely fair
