    "I purchased a first class ticket to travel from Paris to Stuttgart and was very pleased with the coach and seating. It was quite comfortable and included a service to purchase food items and have them delivered to my seat. This was especially nice since I was traveling alone and didn't have to leave my seat. "

    "After researching all the various websites available in the USA, to buy tickets for European trains, I settled on Rail Europe. The website is quite easy to use, and the information available is both comprehensive and accurate. Everything worked out perfectly, and the tickets I printed here in the USA, were accepted with no questions, from the conductor. When I use trains again in Europe, I will not hesitate to go straight to Rail Europe. "

    "From the rail-europe perspective everything was great except we happened to get a car with a school trip of loud students which made for a very unpleasant, noisy trip. next time I will look for cars marked "quiet" if they have such a thing. "
