- "Nice" Janet d. 25/09/2013
We enjoyed traveling by train. However, the trip from Lisboa to Lagos, we didn't have much place for our luggage. The train was old and we thought we would have the same service as from Porto to Lisboa. The trip was relaxed and we took the train from Tunes on our way back so we didn't have any transger.
- "Not good" Arash b. 26/08/2013
Trains were very old and noisy, no footrests, chairs were uncomfortable, reading lights didn't work. I wouldn't recommend anyone for overnight travelling, I have seen better inner city trains than these trains.
- "Trip from Lisbon to Madrid" Lady Yohana l. 11/06/2013
In general the service was good. The train was confortable enough, but for a long trip it could be better.
