Reviews & ratings Paris - Basel
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.
Efficient, comfortable, fast. More comfortable than airline trip to Europe. Good service, good value for the Money
I've travel on nicer TGV's , but it did the trick after a little confuse about getting to the right location to load. We got to the train station 1 1/2 early. Found out they post platform location 45 min. before train time. also seat numbers are located on the arm rest. It was a very good and convenience was great - the ride was on time 3 hours 5 min. would do it again.
It was nice experience
Train was clean and comfortable
First of all let me thank and my congratulaion to Euro rail management for providing very comfortable trip to my family .It was nice experience. My hates off to your punctuality and cleanliness .
Hello! A great experience i had overall but an online ticket might be made available instead of ticket that need to be send to customer with charges. Thank you!
I was transit in Basel SBB for TGV train lead to Paris, It was my good choice to enjoyed the train from Luzern to Basel.
We used the railway from Frankfurt to Basel and then from Basel to Paris. What an excellent and stress-free to move in and around Europe. Highly recommend this way to travel.
I was supposed to be offered a meal in first class, but it didn't materialize. The ride was fine, and the price was good (I bought in advance)
Our travel on TGV Lyria from Basel to Paris was s beautiful experience. It's fast, and with its wide seats, an extremely comfortable way to travel.
swiss trains are best in all respect and convenience and comfort. But they are expensive too.
Was a great experience.
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
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.
