    I had a great experience from the booking process through to the ride on the train, which was very comfortable.

    Thank you.

    Travel China Guide was superb in purchasing bullet tickets in China. The high-speed trains took us over 700 miles to Xi'an to see the terra-cotta warriors. They also responded to our suggestions to make the process more clear. Travel on the bullet train was comfortable with reserved seats. Seeing the countryside as moving along was also a nice addition to the experience.

    You have been such a great help for our train travel from Hangzhou to Suzhou. Thank you for all your clarifications and kind patience. Now we are home. Looking forward to the return visit to your country and the next booking with Travel China Guide.

    I booked my train tickets, all my entrance tickets including the Terracotta Warriors tickets, they issued ticket very fast. We just show our passport and the QR code with our name to take train and enter the spots. It was so good. All of the people can have a try to make a booking with them. They are so professional and friendly. I will book the Xian Tang Dynasty show with them soon.
