"Holibday"Anil d. 11/11/2015
I enjoyed the trip although I had to change the train in Brucells due to a mechanical failure and the train got 45 mts delayed to arrive in Amsterdam
"easy and fun"Kyle l. 20/08/2015
The Thalys crew was helpful and polite. The train was clean and comfortable. The ride was smooth and the directions were in 3 languages which helped me understand. When we travel in Europe again we will book with Thalys
"Thalys Paris - Amsterdam"Stephen m. 19/08/2015
high speed rail is a great way to see the countryside and get around Europe. No queues or waiting to check in/collect bags. would strongly recommend including rail in your Europe itinerary.
"Day trip Paris to msterdam"Graham s. 13/08/2015
We had no trouble finding and boarding the train, seats were comfortable by airline standards ( wide with loads of legroom) ... such a smooth quiet trip. Everything you would expect. I will definitely use this train again
"Paris Nord - Amsterdam C S ". 23/06/2015
Being travellers on holiday from India , Adequate information is not available in English . The train departure stations are given only 10-15 min in advance and this becomes very inconvenient as we were travelling with baggage. Tickets are expected to be printed in paper , and this is not convenient as most travellers book tickets on line and are not accessible to computer printing stations. Either e- tickets on phone or ipads should be acceptable or printing stations should be available at the information counters on the stations. The same is acceptable when travelling by air or when booking hotels. Comfort - very good . Value for money - Very good . Convenience - poor to average but definitely needs improvement.
"Smooth and comfortable "Soo Tow l. 22/06/2015
The train ride was smooth and comfortable. The meal provided was tasty and the departure and arrival were timely. Overall it is a good experience.
"Good, fast and clean."Nootan Rai Naeem r. 21/06/2015
Very convenient, worth the money and clean and comfortable.
"Good efficient service"Nicolaas s. 01/06/2015
Recommended for safe and secure travel. On board staff could be a little more friendly, especially with those of us that don't speak French or Dutch.
"We enjoyed"Sami a. 19/05/2015
The trip was comfortable and arrived on time. The only thing is that I wish the price was a bit cheapper.
"Great Journey"Muhammad Muzammel h. 18/05/2015
Great Service and hospitality.
"4 stars!"Saad f. 15/05/2015
Anyone going to or from Amsterdam is better off taking this train as opposed to the airport. For one these trains are very comfortable and takes a nice scenic route. Secondly, the airport is very cluttered and if you have a transit flight you have to go through passport control first which causes uncessary delays.
"Sister trip"Martha s. 09/05/2015
Unfortunately, I have problems with motion sickness and vertigo. My seat was facing backwards and the train was too full to change seats. There should be the option to CHOOSE the seat you want. For some of us this is very important I must praise the help I received from your staff. My sister and I had a short time to transfer from Paris Noord to Paris Gare Lyon. With out the exceptional help my sister and I received, we would not have made our connection in Paris. The instructions were clear and concise and made all the difference.
"Experience of euro rail". 28/04/2015
Anyone trip to Europe is incomplete if he/she do not experience travel abroad THALYS. The comfort and convenience of traveling is really awesome. You board the train from city center (save time) and get down in the next city center. Allowed luggage limit is quite sufficient for a traveler as in many airlines traveling between European cities is limited to hand baggage.
"Best Trip"Mayur m. 22/04/2015
This was one of the best trips.
