Reviews & ratings London - Paris
It was our first time travelling from London to Paris at Eurostar. It was really very good, the seats are comfortable, the train was clean and everything gone all right. Certainly we'll repeat the experience! Luciene Ardente / Rio de Janeiro / Brazil
I have trevelled from paris to london on 14th jan 2014 ,the price of the ticket is veryyyyy high ,it was not acoording to the facilities .
comfortable, fast and safe
It is convenient because you travel during the night, you can sleep and arrive in your destination and enjoy the day.
It is so hard to find eurostar station in paris ,when we tried to ask the staff ,it was complicated too! As most of staff are not able to speak english …… Hopefully we get on the train in time ……
I enjoyed very much the experience of moving fast and convenient from the culture and language of central London to the French language and culture in the center of Paris.. This is not my first travel from London to Paris and back, but the first time on the express train, and I would definitely recommend this experience.
Was really great; it was good to see the French country side and we were amazed at seeing how many little villages there were. The collection of tickets at Paris Nord was easy and the counter staff were extremely helpful and friendly; just a bit difficult finding where to go at first - more signs are needed.
It is unfortunate that 'rail' is currently more expensive than 'air' because the only thing that 'air' has going for it is speed! In terms of convenience, personal space, stress and the location of transport hubs, 'rail' wins hands-down. This journey made good sense for us and I would recommend it to those looking to get an extra day on the slopes and who are not over-fussed with sleeping in relatively cramped cabins.
Trip was comfortable and am satisfied with the experience.
We had a wonderfull holiday and the train trip was the highlight of our holiday. The service was excelent and the staff were great. Thank you for making it special.
