- "Excellant trip" John p. 20/09/2013
Can't fault the journey. Easy to access, very comfortable and even though it was an almost four hour journey the time passed very quickly and was a lot more interesting than on a plane.
- "Wonderful experitnce" Pin-hsun c. 05/09/2013
We went to Marseille from Paris by TGV train. We enjoyed the experience on the train.
- "Canadian family" Karin r. 07/08/2013
Enjoyed the experience. Train was delayed at one station due to a car crash on the tracks. We could get off the train for a bit if we wished but I could not as my daughter was sleeping. The conductors did come by with water (free of charge), which is just what I needed given the hot day and they had to turned the engines off, thus the AC. Très apprecié.
