Reviews & ratings Basel - Paris
"Good trip with no problems."Jonathan m. 03/11/2015
The price was acceptable. The seat was comfortable. The baggage area was almost filled and the train was booked a little over half capacity. The train operators were polite. The windows were a little dirty, needed wiping. Announcements in English was appreciated. Good overall trip.

"A comfortable trip"Monomit n. 21/06/2015
Recently travelled by TGV Lyria from Paris to Basel and the trip was very comfortable and convenient. It was bit expensive though but I wouldnt mind doing it again :) maybe the fares could be revised a little bit to make the customers more happy
"OK"Parag m. 12/06/2015
Truthfully it could have been a wonderful experience had part of our group not missed our original train. But we missed it due to our own fault. But the staff still got us tickets on a train 4 hours later and even though they were standing we got to sit. Not comfy but good enough to make the journey. U guys are awesome to get us new tickets but our journey got messed up due to our own fault. New tickets were a favor to us so thank you but seats we ended up getting were not great. If there was a rating for hospitality u guys would get 5 stars easy though. Yet it was a memorable journey. Where is the fun without a few hiccups?Thank you for the memories.
"On time, Clean "Lip Han t. 25/05/2015
