    First train trip |
    "I loved riding on the train. It is such a good deal for the money and so comfortable. The only problem I had was that in coming from Bayeux to Paris to get a train to Biarritz I had to change trains and train stations and had only 90 minutes to do this and almost missed my train. It was stressful having to fight to get a taxi when there were not enough of them. Overall, however, I love you train system and will for sure use them again. "

    Peaceful Passage to Paris |
    "After 3 weeks of travel across Southern France (biking, hiking, and driving), we settled into our TGV seats for a relaxing 5.5 hour ride back to Paris. How pleasant it was to have time to reflect on our travels and rest. We did not find the angle of the headrest comfortable, so we got out the inflatable pillows we use on airline flights and it was fine. We had our own picnic, so I cannot comment on the train food. The coffee was excellent. Next time I am in Paris I will remember how easy it is to get to the beach in Biarritz! "

    Could have been better |
    "First, train from Biarritz to Paris came in 70 minutes late, by the time it reached destination, was already 85 minutes late. Reason given - a person on the rails bear St. Jean de Luz, strange reason for such a huge delay. Second, a suggestion. Would it be so difficult to install wifi all through the train. It would help passengers be more patient with other problems, they would be busy surfing or working. Best, Dan Fainaru "
