    "Had a comfortable journey on high speed train from Geneva to Lyon Part Dieu. Compartment was clean and very comfortable seats. I was travelling with heavy luggage so it was difficult to lift the luggage upto the upper deck where first class seats were. That was the only downside, hence the average rating for conveninece. Had to pay 20 eur fper person or the full geneva to paris reservation as I had the euro global rail pass, which was not too expensive. Overall a good journey "

    Nice Station - Dijon Ville  |
    "We left small town Dijon with sweet memory but once we arrived at Lyon Part Dieu, it was like a disaster. Not to mention the overcrowded nature, it should be much better organized that people don't have to gather infront of the TV waiting for trains arrival update and platform info with such a frustration. We arranges to have plenty of time for transfer there but it did not help at all, as the train info appeared in the very last minute and we had to run, literally RUN, to catch that train, despite the fact that we had been waiting there for a couple hours. On the train, it was also very loud and no sunshade on the window. This trip affects much on my next trip decision whether I will take the train. "

    "Traveling with 2 adults and 2 infants on our knees. We had a lot of luggage with us but managed to fit it all into the luggage compartments provided. Did have a moment of worry getting all our bags on and off the train but we were helped by some local commuters thankfully. Comfortable and easy directions to follow. "
