    "I was very pleased with the trip to London from Paris. It was much more pleasant than being forced off to the airport. I enjoyed the scenery, service and the ability to get up and walk around. I would use Eurorail again on a future trip. "

    Paris-Reims TGV |
    "We took the TGV from Paris Gare d'Est to Reims for a day trip. It is a fast, clean, efficient way to go. The train system is precisely on time in departing and arriving. It is crazy fast — in 45 minutes it covers the same distance it would take 2.5 hours to travel by car. Tickets can be purchased online in advance, so you are assured of a certain seat and fare class. Or, you can purchase at the station. We purchased in advance and were able to save quite a bit that way, knowing exactly the day and time of our trip. The cars are very clean, modern and comfortable. The trip is very, very smooth. We would certainly use the TGV again without hesitation. "

    "My wife and I enjoyed the TgV from Reims to Paris in MAy 2015. The service was fast, smooth and comfortable. They only criticism is that there was no luggage bay/shelves so luggage had to be stored in the egress space which was ok. We would definately use it again. "
