Reviews & ratings Paris - Zurich
"Smooth Travels"Christina s.
I took the train from Zurich to Paris and I definitely recommend it as a better option than flying. It was very convenient, the ride was smooth and there is a great selection of food on the food cart. It was on time, something you can't always rely on in the airport.

Traveling by train from Paris to Zurich went off without a hitch. It was a great way to relax and watch the countryside fly by.
"Zurich to Paris by train"Julia m. 10/11/2013
The whole experience of booking and then travelling with TGV Lyria has been fantastic. I will definitely use it again. Thank you.
"Had a good ride"Julia m. 21/10/2013
We enjoyed our ride from Paris to Zurich. The train was very punctual and comfortable.
"amazing"Julia m. 20/10/2013
I travelled with my husband from Zurich to Paris on TGV. Our experience was excellent as it was perfectly timed and we need not ask anyone for the Platform or how to reach upto the Train, it was very clearly displayed on the neon sign board and believe me it took us just three minutes to get into the train after getting down from the Taxi at Zurich station. Inside the train it was very comfortable, Both telephone and I pad electric chargers were there. Our both Indian Mobile as well as Swiss mobile worked well throughout the journey. We could get Vegetarian food at the Pantry- freshly cooked and of course mildly spicy.

I have enjoyed my tripe from Paris to Zurich
"Amsterdam to Paris trip"Senthilkumar r. 08/10/2013
The train and the facilities were very good. The travel was worth for the money paid. However one item needs to be addresssed by the administration. There were many reserved ticket holders without seat numbers. As a tourist and speaking foreign language they were stranded with their luggages with no guidance on where to go. This can be avoided in future.
"Paris To London"Manivel g. 04/10/2013
The trip was an absolute pleasure and beat flying by a mile
"Great Experience"Robyn f. 26/09/2013
We recently travelled 1st class on the TGV Lyria from Paris to Zuerich. It was our first trip on a high speed train
"Zurich to Paris in the rain"Robyn f. 20/09/2013
What better way to see the lovely countywide in the rain than to be in a comfortable first class carriage from Zurich to Paris? It takes less time than to fly there due to the long time spent waiting in airports and long drives into/from town. The carriage was comfortable, the meal was not bad at all and it was most comfortable. I'd do it again. And again
