Having been left stranded by EasyJet cancelling the Gatwick flight on December 30th 2016 we had to take 3 trains from Berlin to St Pancras. The best by far was the TGV, the one train I have always wanted to travel on and I was not disappointed. This is the most comfortable train I have been on and the speed... More

My wife & I caught the train from Paris to Bordeaux, and we were amazed at how comfortable and quick the train was. To be fair, we did pay for the 1st class tickets, so may be different in 2nd class, but it made no sense not to travel in 1st class when the tickets are so cheap comparably. If... More

Comfortable and with good facilities TGV gives a great experience for the money you pay. I used TGV to travel from Paris to Belgium and views are amazing. Train goes directly inside the Brussels airport. A must have experience when in Europe

I have had to wait to write this review as TA only allows one review of the same thing in a 3 month period. See my other review for the journey from Paris to Nice. This journey was another matter. We were advised that there was a strike but that our train was still going and as we had reserved... More

We took the TGV on a return trip from Paris Est to Strasbourg this week. I love travelling this way. The stations are in the middle of the city. There's no arduous check in/security/baggage procedures. You just show up and walk on. The trains run on time, usually to the second. The seats are comfortable, with lots of leg room.... More
