Reviews & ratings Bordeaux - Toulouse
"Pleasant Journey"Cynthia c.
My husband and I booked first class tickets for this train ride. We returned a rental car at the St. Jean Train Station and then rolled our luggage inside. The station was easy to navigate even speaking only a little French, and we found our car with no problem. It would be helpful if there was more luggage storage in First Class, but otherwise we had a great journey. The seats were comfortable. The man across from me kept kicking me though, so I think he needed more leg room. However, we arrived to the Montparnasse train station, and it was a disaster trying to navigate it with our luggage, so I don't suggest taking a train trip if you have more than one suitcase.
"Travelling France via Rail"King Shan Carol c. 16/11/2013
It was a pleasant journey in general. We appreciated the speed of the train. Yet, we hope the hygiene of the toilets could be improved. On our journey from Marseilles to Bordeaux, all the toilets on the train was extremely filthy. It was a long journey and we needed to go to toilet quite often. Thanks for reading my review. Carol
"Comfort and convenience "King Shan Carol c. 27/10/2013
we dropped the car off in Bordeaux before heading back to Paris. Great trip, convenient and comfortable. One tip though, take your own food and drink. Buying on the train is expensive. Otherwise no complaints. Would definitely do it again.
"family trip Toulouse to Paris"Karen s. 14/10/2013
our family of 7 traveled from Toulouse to Paris via Bordeaux. It was a great trip. Suggestions to make it easier for future travelers would be to make it clear that there is a maximum number of people you can book at one time on-line, took a google search to find out that you can't book more than 6 people. And for passengers to be aware that the time between when the platform is announced and getting on the train can be quite tight so you need to move with army precision when in a crowd to get onto the train with baggage in time. Clean and comfortable we all enjoyed the rail journey.
"Journey from Toulouse to Paris"Why Geen k. 24/09/2013
The journey is not that comfortable due: 1) the person in front reclined the seat too far back which result in the person at the back find it difficult to stretch her legs. 2) They is a very long stopover in one of the station between Toulouse and Paris. At Toulouse station, there is not enough signage for first time travelers who are non-french speaking to locate the platform for connecting train (in this case, Paris). Otherwise is a perfect journey as the schedule is on time.
