The SNCF's intercity train is more cheaper than the TGV from Paris to Tours though a bit slower, took about 2 hours to reach Tours whereas the other one is less than 2. For the big difference in price I opted for the slower intercity that start from Gare D'Austerlitz. TGV on the other hand is from Montparnasse.

I bought the ticket online SNCF website at Euro 15. Comfortable though and no scenic ride. I took the same train coming back for same cost and duration.
