Reviews & ratings Avignon - Lyon

"Paris to Avignon on the TGV"

  Dawn s. 
Very comfortable, convenient and easy are the best words to describe our trip. It certainly was far easier than flying and much more enjoyable. You had more room and didn't feel as constricted. Flitting from one city to the next but still seeing the country side was a bonus. We had heard that travelling by train was a lot easier than flying now we can see why.

We recently travelled as above... the journey to Geneva was not easy as SNCF decided to finish the trip at a station well before Geneva !!! Eventually order prevailed ( there were a lot of non-fluent trevellers, and we were led to another train. This of course meant substantial delays for everyone on the train. The train inquestion was fairly old and not all that comfortable. However, the return trip was another story... a very comfortable train,left on time - arrived on time. Not your fault at Rail Europe.. just one of those things. We have booked with you before, and will be using you again. Bill

It was a great ride! I loved it at it was my first time riding the TGV. The downside was that the coach had a funny smell, probably from when they cleaned the carpets, and it was a bit bothering.

My trip for the above is very good. Ground staff were helpful this time, seats were comfortable, convenient and price was reasonable. The cabins however were not clean. Lots of rubbish fell in between and quite dusty, rather unsightly. Regards, Lyn
