"Family trip"Jeng-horng c.
My wife passed away by cancer June 2013, that's why I'd decided to have my two daughters travel with for memorize her, we have a very good trip along the european continent, France is our first rated country, although we'd been to Paris before(four of us), three of us tour Strasboug and Kandersteg Swizland, Lugano, and most of the Italy, we like the Freeziano train, beautiful, Germany trains were the most convenient, we don't have to pay for reservation, James
"Lyon-Geneva-Lyon"William n. 15/10/2013
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
"Strasbourg - Lyon"Volodymyr a. 14/10/2013
Convenient, comfortable, in time.
"Paris CDG - Lyon"Radu c. 14/10/2013
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.
"Gare Lyon-Lausanne"Radu c. 07/10/2013
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
"One day in Strasbourg by train"Alexandra r. 24/09/2013
I and my husband travelled from Paris to Strasbourg on 14-09-2013 for a one day visit of the city. We left Paris from Gare de l' Este in the morning at 08:20 and we returned the same day back to Paris leaving Strasbourg at 20:14. Our trip was comfortable and on time and a small problem which we had on boarding the morning train, because on the e-tickets we had we couldn't read the number of our coach was quickly solved by a very polite and helpful conductor.
"Frankfurt to Strasbourg"Damian b. 22/09/2013
The transfer by bus at Frankfurt Airport to Frankfurt Airport Train Station good. Getting to the platform with bags at Frankfurt Airport Train Station to Frankfurt Main Station difficult escalators on all other platforms but the one to the centre of Frankfurt a little strange. Trip from Frankfurt to Strasbourg comfortable just difficult with bags if your sit is upstairs and the train is busy.
