  • "Porto SUSA to Lyon Part Dieu"    
    The train was delayed finally by 3 hours and updates and information or person to assist was not available. Susa station is quite small and with many persons waiting the facilities and comfort at the platform were also limited. Overall was a negative impact on my travel and inconvenienced me to a great extent, even though the situation may have been out of TGV hands.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Loved this trip"    
    Upgraded to 1st class. Well worth it. This train journey was not long enough! Comfortable, able to charge my phone and use wifi.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Not bad"    
    No wi-fi    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Beautiful France "    
    I went from Paris to Turin and vice versa. So I saw the beautiful landscape of France. Frst south of Paris and then in the direction of Lyon and the Alps and Italy. On the journey back from Turin to Paris there wre lots of tunnels in the Alps-region, so I missed a great deal of the scenery that I had seen on the first trip. But after that part everything was beautiful again. Very good staff on board of the train. Wonderful speed.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Practical way of travelling"    
    We had a comfortable and pleasant trip from Torino, Italy, to Paris, France. The food service was good. If only the toilets would have been working properly and the clean up team would have showed up more than once, everything would have been perfect. Nevertheless, the 6 hour trip went very fast.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Our Italian Holiday"    
    Absolutely brilliant!    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Very good"

  • "Nice trip"    
    Again it was a nice trip, but nothing to brag about it. However, what the survey is not asking is about my trip within Spain - Barcelona to Madrid and Malaga - That was the best; the train is very nice their service was awesome.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "review"    
    very good train journey , enjoyed  
  • "Not entirely satisfactory. ..."    
    Unfortunately our train out of Turin to Paris experienced technical problems so we were transferred to another train after about 90 mins. Despite the fact we were travelling First Class the substitute train was not of the same high standard and we had to purchase our own food and drinks. All announcements were in French and Italian so as English speakers we had no idea what was going on. We enjoyed the scenery though but had no idea of where we were at any part of our journey because there were no overhead monitors in the replacement older train.  
  • "Easy in first class"    
    My trip from Chambery Challes was easy and when I put in my old ticket, I was given a first class seat.  
  • "The best journey ever"    
    Train was on time. And the 1st class is a great deal. The best view ever along the journey. Love it!!!    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Family trip"    
    We were travelling as a family, and you gave us 3 separate seats. My seat was 2 coaches away from my wife and daughter (they were coach 5, I was coach 7). I didn't hear the Turin station call, and almost missed my connecting train to Venice! We should have all had our tickets together. Also, the windows were dirty - hard to see out.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Easy,fast and cheap"    
    Train depart from gare de lyon paris to milan p garibal....its easy, cheap and enough comfort.,.,,.    Value for money  Convenience
  • "Good trip but stressful start"    
    My trip from Lyon to Milan was otherwise good, but waiting for the train at the Part-Dieu station, the platform from which the train was going to leave was not announced before the very last minute, and on top of that it was first stated that the train was leaving 10 or 15 minutes late but some five minutes before the original time of departure, it was announced that it was not going to be late after all. Thankfully I had not relied on the train being late, but it was very stressful to stand there waiting for the platform information when it was only a couple of minutes to the stated departure time, wondering if I was somehow supposed to know what the platform was. I could find no station personnel to ask. The trip itself was comfortable and well on schedule, and in 1st class lunch was served to the seat which was very nice. As an improvement I would suggest providing power sockets at the seats so that passengers can charge their mobile phone or laptop. A WLAN for internet access for passengers (at an extra charge if necessary) would also come very useful.    Value for money  Convenience
