    Comfortable and relaxing |
    "We find travel on TGV very comfortable and relaxing. We have a good game with cards for over one hour. It would have been better if we can have a choice of seats with us facing the direction of travel. We found it comfortable because we were able to change seats with other passengers who did not mind to seat facing the opposite direction of travel. Otherwise our entire trip would have been ruined.
