    Horrible experience |
    "It was a nightmare of a journey from Gare d'Lyon as we didnt have a print of the ticket and wanted to collect it from the ticket booth. With a long queue and nobody to help, we had to run around to get our ticket. Finally with no hope in sight and with 2 minutes for the train to depart, we decided to board without a print of the booked ticket. We managed to board 20 seconds before the doors closed. Thankfully, we had a wonderful ticket conductor who was patient to look for our tickets in his system. Journey wasn't bad though and the TGV delivered to its promise. Lesson learnt - get a print of your ticket. "
