    Thank you so much for your availability and speed in the answers, and all the assistance you have rendered. I have travelled by China HSR before, and I am taking my friends to experience the ride. My china trip went smoothly under your courtesy and experience.

    Tickets were there when I arrived at the hotel. Thank you for good service. It is the first time I experience China high speed train. It is just amazing. It’s faster, safer and more convenient. I will try it again

    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.

    Thank you. I was very pleased. A good booking service was offered for the train ticket from Beijing to Chengdu and I will definitely be using your website again to book either train or flight tickets. TravelChinaguide.com is an excellent and comprehensive source of information for the tourist. I access it a lot. Again many thanks.

    Your booking service was excellent. The consultants were conscientious and thorough. The train ride was excellent. Waiting room in Chengdu was excellent, but was overcrowded in Beijing, probably because two trains were sharing the same space. We will definitely take the train again!

    Thank you for your service; we really thought that the booking process was well organized. Also the delivery of the tickets to the hotel was very nice and worked perfectly.

    Unfortunately we are disappointed with bathroom facilities on the train. They were really filthy, not only the one in our carriage but also the one in next two carriages! I do not think this is a standard situation for high speed train. I know that you are not responsible for this as you only book the tickets for your customers. But as you work together with the railway service, you might be able to tell them about our complaint.

    I want to thank you very much for your job done. When I arrived at my Hotel in Beijing I received your express-letter with the ordered train-tickets Beijing - Chengdu and return. I was very happy about your sincere action and than as an surprise we had on board of the express-train Beijing - Chengdu and vice versus so wonderful seats which I never have seen anywhere in the world. That trip was the highlight of our visit to China. Many thanks again for your reliable cooperation.
