Reviews & ratings Avignon - Paris
"From London to Paris"Jonathan g.
The train ride from London St Pancras to Paris Gare du Nord was a smooth ride. The train took off on time and even arrived slightly ahead of time in Paris that was expected. The seats were comfortable and staff were very friendly. On my way, back from Paris, the staff showed unlimited concern to an elderly passenger who was sitting around me. Very impressed.
"Amsterdam to Paris train"Noor Soffalina s. 16/04/2014
The train arrived on time. Staffs at the train station checked if everybody have the right tickets, and usher them to the correct area on the platform based on your carriage number. So you dont have to run all the way back if your seat is at the last carriage. However, they should have advise us earlier what to so with big luggage. We only know afterwards that we should take another door which have the bag storage racks. We got our seat and the train starts departing Amsterdam CS. After a while, announcement was made that the cafe was open. Since we didnt have breakfast, we went there to buy some food. We had to wait quite a while, the staff wasnt even ready. upon returning to our seats, we were surprise to find people in our seats. After a while, we figured out that we had the correct seat number but wrong carriage number. That was super confusing! There is no where in the train to know which carriage number it is. And every carriage has the same seat number?? It would be beneficial to have those clearly written. As the train make stops along the way to take passengers, so once you are in your seat, do not think it's definitely yours, you might get it wrong like us.
"Fast and efficient!"Emily y. 13/04/2014
We took the train from Paris to Reims for champagne tours and it was quiet, comfortable, fast and fun! I recommend!
"A great train trip"Willa s. 12/04/2014
As on previous CDG trips, this one was great- arrival and departure right on time, comfortable seating and the wonderful convenience of leaving from the airport., Our only problem was in booking - I didn't take note ot the site I booked (and paid ) on so when an email of confirmation did not arrive, I was unable to track our tickets and had to re-book and re-pay.
"Zurich to Paris by TGV"Vaughan h. 12/04/2014
Nice fast trip in comfortable seating. Good range of food in the dining car, helpful staff.
"Paris long weekend"Stewart g. 10/04/2014
Easy to book, fast and reliable the TVG was exactly what you would expect from a premier rail service. The return journey on the ICE was good but not equal to the TGV experience. I would and have happily recommended the service to friends.
"Paris to London"Leslie a. 10/04/2014
Fast, courteous service. Will use again
"Train from Rennes to CDG "Barbara m. 13/12/2013
I booked in advance and managed to obtain return first class tickets at a good price. The journeys were fast, smooth, warm, quiet and comfortable. I look forward to many more train journeys in the future.
"Trip from Paris to London"Xuan Tian s. 11/12/2013
Booking a Eurostar train from Paris Gare Du Nord to London St Pancras was easy and fast. However, we were unable to choose our seats and we got a back facing seat. It was quite uncomfortable and we didn't like siting back facing. It would be good if Rail Europe allow choosing of seats on the website.
"Aachen to Paris"Marc p. 10/12/2013
We traveled to Germany with my husband on business. It was very convenient to get to the Aachen train station and then to Paris. The train station in Paris was 2 blocks from our hotel. The ease of taking the train helped make the trip memorable. The train was clean and neat and the seat have adequate room if you have to travel for long periods of time.

A very good trip.
"Excellent Experience"Ai Luan p. 10/12/2013

"Paris to Amsterdam"Luke g. 07/12/2013

"Eurostar - Paris to London"Debra p. 06/12/2013
On time, comfortable - excellent. With RailEurope we paid in NZ dollars before our trip assisting with our budget and found that the price we paid was by far the least expensive fare available.
"Paris to Lourdes trip"Gnanasekaran c. 05/12/2013
We travelled from Paris to Lourdes by First Class. The heater was not working efficiently and so we were feeling cold. The train was delayed by 3 hours and 30 minutes. The announcements could also be in English in addition to French, since it is difficult for Foreigners like us to follow. The couchette was comfortable to lie. Thanks to the complimentary breakfast.
