    Our booking experience through TCG booking center is very good. We would like to have direct Chinese phone contact just in case there is problem in checking in.

    My experience of the TCG has been extremely good. Your communication and feedback are excellent.

    My only criticism is the need for the scanning of passport copy which can be inconvenient and not always possible. Generally though excellent service.
