My journey from Nice to Paris was very fascinating. The price was reasonable and good value and also one of the best transport options. The staff were very friendly and polite. They always clarified my concerns and helped me out. The wifi was very efficient and stable. This allowed me to be productive during the trip as I was able to work on my laptop. However, no attention was paid to hygiene. The toilets and seats were not clean and tidy. Unfortunately, the train did not arrive in Paris on time and the noise level was rather annoying. Although there were some bad features, the journey was great!
Pros
IconVery fast
Cons
IconInformation display
Always a pleasure! The train was on time and also arrived on time, as there were no disruptions in between. The train arrived very quickly for the route and was shorter than by car. Otherwise everything was great, no changes and everything was relaxed. They could just work on the information display and make it more international.
Pros

Cons
IconPunctuality
The journey home was also a very pleasant experience. I definitely liked the friendliness of the staff, the impeccable hygiene and the comfort on the benches. However, I have to criticise the fact that my train was unfortunately not quite on time. The ticket price was definitely reasonable. It was quiet on the train and everyone was very relaxed and easy-going. I recommend the train connection.

My journey from Nice to Paris turned out to be fantastic as the price was very good. The staff were very friendly, respectful and nice. They always solved the problems of their passengers. In addition, the train arrived on time in Paris and the seats were very comfortable. This gave me the chance to relax and rest. However, the noise level on the train was not adequate and hygiene was not particularly well looked after as the toilets were not well maintained. Unfortunately, there were also several changes of trains, which made the journey more difficult. But a super great journey, especially for the good price!

The return journey was also super relaxed and fast! I was really surprised how fast the train travelled and how short the journey actually is in relation to the distance! Again, everything was great, the train was on time, there was no need to change trains and it was even equipped with wifi. The price was not cheap, but still fair! Fortunately, the staff on this journey could speak some English. I can only recommend it!

Unfortunately, the train arrived at the station far too late again. The frustration gradually subsided when I saw how clean everything was on the train. Apart from that, it's important to mention that the staff were always ready to help and inform the passengers. There was good wifi and the atmosphere was very relaxed. All in all, it was a relaxing journey. A clear recommendation.
