    We would like to say that we are more than 100% satisfied with the service you provided at TCG! The information we got from you before travelling was great and always up to date. The tickets were delivered to our hotel in Beijing on time and reliably.
    Worst experience was that we left the train tickets in our hotel in Beijing and only realised it when we arrived to Chengde. However, thanks to the great service of your travel company, you sent emails to us that we printed out and brought to the railway station in Chengde. The tickets were issued again easily.
    It was a bit complicated because we had to pay full price again and then needed to get the refund after we travelled at the railway station. In both places (Datong + Pingyao) it was fast forward. Only problem was the language barrier that the conductor of trains did not understand that we needed a confirmation from them as a proof of travelling. Fortunately, there was always a passenger to find to translate and all in all we can say that your company is very well organised, the trains are clean and really leave the railway stations on time. We always felt safe and would travel again by train next time we come to China. By the way: your country is really nice, with friendly people, delicious food and everything was above our expectations!

    I was very happy with my purchase of train tickets through Travel China Guide. All my questions were quickly and honestly answered, and my tickets arrived at my hotel just as promised, in plenty of time for me to catch my trains and not have to worry about anything. I especially enjoyed the high speed rail trip between Beijing and Shanghai. It was so pleasant I almost wished it could last longer. I will certainly contact Travel China Guide for assistance with my rail tickets on my next trip to China....More

    Thank you for your service. My secretary and I were extremely satisfied with the booking experience and will highly recommend your service to others.

    We find your services are extremely good. You got me a Hard Sitting ticket from Beijing to Weifang as there was no other sleeper tickets were available. However I could manage to change the ticket for first class sleeper by paying the difference. The journey was very comfortable.
    It was really nice that we could avail off your services as we do not know the procedure to travel in train in china due to the communication hurdles. It was very nice and the procedure went on well as you had guided each and every step. Thank you very much. I definitively suggest my friends who travel in China to avail off your services....More

    We really would like to thank you for the wonderful job you did with our tickets booking. All the booking process was very easy and we especially appreciate the delivery service of the tickets at our hotel in Beijing. We didn’t want to waste time during our holidays going to the train station to get the tickets. When we arrived at our hotel from the airport, the tickets were waiting for us.
    Concerning the train trips we also thought it was very easy. Even without speaking chinese, it was easy in the stations to find the good track and then the good carriage (maybe because we were only in big cities stations).
    We travel all over the world with our children, always on our own and organizing everything on our own. Though we’ve been to many asian countries, It was our first time in China because from Europe a trip without an organized group in China seems quite difficult but it was not. We will be back for sure because we really had a great time and saw beautiful monuments in your wonderful country.

    We had a very good experience booking through this site and with the train system. We made an error in intial booking but you were very helpfull in sorting out the mistakes. In the end we had the tickets delivered to our first hotel. They arrived well in time. The placement was easily figured out with the help of some other passengers. Trains were mostly on time and placement assured by the ticketing system. Very satisfied about the trains and the service all in all.

    The booking process was smooth and very easy to follow. The tickets arrived in time at the hotel. The train journey itself was very enjoyable as well. Thank you by the way for the hint to arrive early at the train station. This saved me from some stressful encounters.
    The only thing which was a bit irritating was the different format of the ticket where I couldn't validate my ticket on the machines itself. Overall I was very satisfied with my trip. Keep up the good work!

    I was very happy with the TravelChinaGuide train ticket service. It simplified my travel in China, and I will recommend to friends.

    Check-in and waiting room in Beijing very very busy. Boarding procedures and the train facilities very good. Train to XI 'AN had 3h late at arrival. Check-in and waiting room in XI'AN OK. From Xi' AN everything ok.

    We used TravelChinaGuide for a couple of high-speed rail journeys and would definitely use you again the next time we need. The booking was easy and the contact from you made the whole process even easier.
    The trips were very comfortable and punctual. We got trains from both Beijing and Luoyang and found both stations easy to navigate. You are kept in a waiting area until a few minutes before the train is due to leave and I would advise ensuring you are at the stations in plenty of time, especially the larger stations.
    We selected to have the tickets sent to our hotel and that was handled promptly with no fuss or issue.
    Very efficient and easy to use service
