Overall appreciation

Excellent % Very good % Average % Poor % Terrible %

  • "Short commute"    
    Trip was the first leg of a longer journey. It was fast, convenient. There is very limited space for luggage. Trains don't seem to cater for passengers with suitcases.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Finishing the biking trip"    
    Local train service from the wine region and very comfortable train. There was a lack of luggage storage and bags were stacked in the aisles. The train was also about 10 minutes late.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Euro Star, St Pancras to Paris"    
    We thoroughly enjoyed the journey. We got the overground from New Southgate to Kings Cross. Walked over the road to St Pancras, checked in and cleared customs which was quick, had a cup of coffee then boarded the train. No cabs, no weight worries with luggage. Had a glass of prosecco on board. The wifi was pretty good so I could take care of emails etc. Very comfortable and no stress. 2 hours 20 minutes later Eh Voila, Central Paris. Will definitely do it again, too easy!    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Fast and comfortable"    
    A pleasure to ride in the TGV, as always.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Good"    
    The only thing I couln't finish understand was that It was kind of difficult to identify the gates to take the train, but that's not your fault I guess. But I think it would be good idea to explain in a pdf or something like that how to identify the place where you get in the train, i'm not talking about the station, but the place in the station.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Train from Montpellier"    
    We wanted to travel to Marseille to depart by air for Rome. Realised during journey that the stop at Marseille Aero was best for us. Just a short free bus trip to the airport terminal, no need to go to Marseille St Charles Station.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Fabulous journey"    
    Excellent train, fabulous views  
  • "Start of a great day out"    
    the service was 5mins delay from Lyon but train and toilets clean.    Value for money
  • "Marseille to Nice"    
    Good option to travel between Marseille and Nice. Comfortable and good travel time.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Never was on the train."    
    I didn't arrive in Europe until Sept. 02. I broke my leg two days later and returned to the USA. I cancelled the reservations on the phone and on the net. I returned the printed out tickets to you at the address in the USA as requested. You received your Tickets two days ago and acknowledged receipt yesterday. I'm waiting for you to credit my charge card. Olease let me know if you have any further questions. This IS NOT a negative review - every time I have contacted your company I've been treated with respect and professionalism and all your personnel have done everything they could to help me - I WILL use yourservice when I return to Europe next year. - Thank you  
  • "Trip"    
    Hi great trip but train 40 minutes late.  
  • "Busy train.."    
    Train was on time, ran smoothly and was v. comfortable for the trip. It took 2 stops before my friend and I could get 2 seats together as the train was very busy and we did not have booked seats... Overall the experience was fine and I would recommend French trains, based on this experience.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "First Class? Class 1?"    
    Although our tickets showed Class 1, there was no Class 1 carriage so hope we did not pay a Class 1 fare. Departure and arrival on time. Trip somewhat spoilt by 2 noisy women! Rather than fight our way through metro with heavy bags took a taxi between stations. Enough time was allowed but wouldn't have liked to have had less as Paris traffic unpredictable.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Trip to Grenoble"    
    The train is very good, clean, and big. However, there were 2 mothers and few of their children who ran around the train and make noise for the whole journey. I was with my 2 big luggage and my heavy bag so I wasn't able to move to another coach. I know it wasn't the train's fault but I just want someone to take care of these things too. Those mothers just sit and chill, they don't even have some respect to other passengers. I was so annoyed.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "plane was 5 hours late"    
    so I had to buy another train ticket 24 euros from machine...no way at a crowded Bordeaux station to find out if my ticket would have been accepted...queues everywhere and the helpers in red uniforms did not know    Value for money  Convenience
