    We were very satisfied with the ticket service and all other aspects of travelling by train in China. It was easy to find our way at the stations, with the different gates (just like the airport). When we were leaving Xian to go to Beijing we unfortunately went to the wrong railwaystation (always check that twice!) and missed our train. After the first panic there were no problems to get knew tickets for the next train without paying any extra!! We can highly recommend others to travel by train in China. A minor problem is that it can be hard to find someone who speaks english if you need to ask something... but that′s a part of the adventure- isn't it?!

    We booked a train from Beijing to Xi'an and back via travelchinaguide. We are really satisfied with the information we received from travelchinaquide before our train trip. We did not meet any problems at all by reading the information you sent us in beforehand.
    Our tickets were waiting for us in the hotel we had asked the ticket to be delivered. You also checked via mail that we did receive our tickets. So the whole process from booking to delivery was really excellent.
    The train trip itself was also a nice experience. We were very well informed about the procedures in China train so no surprises here. We brought with us some snacks and in the train there was hot water available for tea or coffee (you need your own tea bags or instant coffee). All in all, we are happy with our train experience....More

    I really enjoyed the trains in China. I went from Beijing to Xian and Xian to Shanghai. North very comfortable. Booking both the journeys with travel china guide tours made it very easy. I just took my reservation print off to the station ticket office and my seats tickets were printed with no problems. I needed my journeys arranged before my travel to China for my Visa and this company made it possible. Thank you.

    Your services in booking our train trip were much appreciated. Emails were answered promptly and the booking process was very smooth and effective. We really enjoyed the train trip from Beijing to Xi'an. Getting into the right part of the station at Beijing to pick up the tickets was difficult for us as we had a language barrier and I would advise any non Chinese speakers to allow plenty of time. Apart from that the trip was most enjoyable.

    TravelChinaGuide made the booking of our train from Beijing to Xi'an extremely easy and hassle free. When we arrived at our hotel the tickets were there and ready to go. Also, the process at the station was extremely straightforward and easy to navigate for the three of us. Thank you again for your assistance in our travels, I would recommend TravelChinaGuide to anyone looking for assistance with their travels in China.

    booked bullet train Beijing to Xian and also soft sleeping train Xian to Chengdu. We found booking easy. However to pick up the tickets were complicated since there are many different ticket lines and we do not know to read Chinese so we do not know which line to wait in.
    Also the soft sleeping tickets had a special waiting room which were not aware of. It would have been nice to know.
    We got slippers on the sleeping train that was a nice surprise. The bed sheets were clean. And next time we will order a wagon further away from were all the Chinese men are smoking. The bullet train was just fine. ...More
