  • "Zurich to Como"    
    So relaxing and comfortable, and the scenery was amazing!    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Italy "    
    convenience and great coast along the way...    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Good trip but..."    
    Problem of seat reservation No family space Delay of 30 minutes    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Rome to Salzburg"    
    This leg of the journey went very smoothly apart from the ability to store our luggage. As we are older folk it was immediately obvious I was not going to be able to lift our suitcases up into the overhead luggage racks and as a result we found space for them behind our seat as we were sitting in a four seat pod. As the trip continued people stored their luggage at the front of the carriage for possibly the same reason as us. I would recommend some storage racks at the back of the carriage similar to other trains we travelled on.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Comfortable -Easy"    
    Good train trip from Milano to Spiez. Comfortable cabin/seats/ride.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Smooth trip cramped foot space"    
    We three rode in first class. We were assigned seats in a four-seat-with-table bay, and were joined by a fourth for most of the trip. It would have been much more comfortable to be in separate seats, since the foot space under the tables is quite limited. In all other respects the trip was nearly as good as in first class on the TGV. Not quite as fast or smooth, and not as good food service, but generally fine and certainly far better than air travel. We will use this again.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "WORST TRAIN"    
    The Train was very poorly maintained. No cleanliness and Toilet was not working. I Even lost my Wallet on train and no one helped me out.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "NICE TRIP"    
    the train is on time but the space for luggage is too small.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Trip to Swiss "    
    Excellent Service ... Punctuality to the core .... Clean and well maintained compartments ... Staff very courteous .... Recommended 100 times if not more .... keep up the good work    Value for money  Convenience
  • "vacation"    
    thought first class was bigger (comparing to TGV Lyria). Also too many stops.    Convenience
  • "Most convenient way to travel "    
    Train was comfortable and punctual! Helps to buy the ticket in advance if you know your travel times as it's cheaper than buying on the spot!    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Good and worth"    
    It was fast and comfortable. It also saved our money    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Car Cancelled"    
    We pre-paid and received in the mail, 4 upgraded tickets to travel from Munich to Bologna. When the train pulled into the station, there was no car with our assigned number. I asked train personel about our car, and was rudely told that it had been cancelled and to "go sit over there". (Pointing to another car w/empty seats.) The car we were directed to sit in, were lower class seats than what we had paid for. The car had little air conditioning and the seats were very uncomfortable. I would like a refund for the difference in the value of the seats for which we prepaid. I would also like to request that train personel receive an education on how to interact with customers. Thank you.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Worst experience"    
    Didn't get to ride this train at all. We paid for so much and we ended up with the cheapest train. I paid almost 600euros when I should have only paid half. I am telling other Asians about this experience. We don't experience this in other countries like Japan. Train is always clean and on-time. There are also no security measures in the train stations. No one is checking the bags, passports etc. Terrorists can easily fly from one country to another. After all that is happening in Europe, I am surprised no security checks are being done in the stations.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Very good"    
    it was a convenience trip.    Value for money  Convenience
