    I booked train tickets from Guangzhou to Sanya with your company. Due to the weather, my train was cancelled. I am very disappointed your company did not inform me about this cancellation in advance. I only got the news when I reached the station. Although we got full refund later, it is a challenged time. If I were informed in advance, all things would be different. Your company should do something on this.

    I must say offered the best train booking service in China. We booked more than 20 tickets on this website. They updated me the booking progress timely. No matter when I have problems, I emailed them and they also responded me quickly. Thanks again for your excellent service.

    I went to the train station early to sort may passport number issue. The person at the train station was also very kind and helpful and I managed to collect the desired train tickets without much need of change, as the train tickets had not been cancelled. Sorry for the trouble and please do not worry.

    Without your assistance, we were not able to get the tickets for such a popular destination, during summer holiday. I should have known you had it all under control. Thank you so much for all your efforts.

    We encountered some problems in purchasing train ticket. We filled in the wrong passport info. The operator patiently and responsibly helped us solve the problem, they communicated with the train station staff, and helped us solve the problem in time. Thanks so much for the effort!

    I have nothing but praise for the way you handled my requests, bookings, refund request, and inquiries. It is a pleasure to do business with such an efficient and friendly company and I assure you I will contact you again when we next plan travel. You are my first contact for travel plans now.

    Thank you very much for your excellent service. I wish you continuing success.

    I must thank you for very good service, not much more one could ask for. I also appreciated the good mail conversion and the fact that our details very kept (passport copies etc).

    One thing I think you should consider is to have a true credit card payment system, paypal is good but not for this type of purchases.

    I will definitely use your services again and recommend your service to friends without any hesitation.
