Reviews & ratings Nice - Lyon
Right from city centre to city centre, fast and convenient. Not exactly cheap tho.
This was our first leg on a 10 day rail tour. Everything was well organised .the bar staff efficient and friendly
there were no clear signs in barcelona train station and we nearly got onto the wrong train. and it turned out we were only on the domestic train. As we handed our ticket to the high speed train, the ticket manager was pointing out to us that we had to travel through another train, which could have been free at the time. we were very confused as none of them really spoke English
The 2nd class train is comfortable. Some toilet in train should be better. No wifi in this train,so we cannot use it.
TGV run a very efficient service. The trip in 2nd class was quite comfortable and the company was friendly. The views of the countryside were a bonus. TGV staff passed through the carriage to check tickets, so we were confident that there were no free-loaders.
Very comfortable and enjoyable trip, 35EUR first class at TGV (tariff TGV Prem)
The Paris to Lyon train journey was peaceful and exciting at the same time. I was traveling with my wife and 4 year old daughter and we opted for the 1st class which was a blessing as there was more space for our luggage and lots of leg room and space for my daughter to play and for us to lounge. We spend the time window gazing into the bucolic beauty of France while sketching, wining and dozing. The train attendants were most helpful and warm making our journey truely memorable.
Another comfortable train journey in Spain.
Fantastic - comfortable, very convenient and was excellent value for money.
The trip was all of the above and we were very satisfied with the ticket allocations too. Maybe a little note to first time travellers about the platform numbers not coming up until just before the train goes would alleviate their minds and perhaps a plan of the train as to where your coach might be could be a little bit helpful. But it was terrific and I certainly will use them again Thank you.
