    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.

    My booking consultant Jessica is responsive and considerate. She emailed and called me to double check my passport information and help me to correct it. I really appreciate all her assistance and hard work.

    There is no need to collect a paper ticket and I only showed my passport to enter the station and board onto the train. So quick and convenient. Thank you Ivy, you helped me a lot with my order.

    Everything was fine. The train tickets booking process was fast and easy. I had a marvelous week spent at the end of April, the one to be remembered, Chongqing & Chengdu hotpot, Beijing roast duck, visiting Palace Museum and Terracotta Warriors in Xi’an. BIG THANK TO TravelChinaGuide.

    I traveled last month and like many travelers, I can not speak any Chinese language. I booked my round trip train tickets through TravelChinaGuide and had them delivered to my home. But sadly I found the staff who is in charge of our apartment could not speak or understand English, I was pretty nervous since I could not get my tickets. I called the company and Miss Victoria answered my phone, she talked to the staff and I got my delivery about two minutes later. Good service and very helpful, I will recommend them. ...More

    Booking train tickets online saved much time at the train station. No mandarin skills required and no long queues faced. China train stations were really big and busy. You’d better get to the station at least one hour before to pass through the security, figure out the waiting room and check-in gate, then get on the train and find your seat. Anyway, the service provided by TravelChinaGuide was super good. Many thanks!
