    As a travel in a far away land, I found it very easy to use this service or my train booking needs.
    It was very comforting to know I had May ticket to my destination. To the right destination before arriving at the train station. I was able to take a picture of my confirmation number. And then show it with my passport to receive my ticket.
    It was confusing as to which window till I realized they were all the same.both the high-speed rail and the SOB sleeper train were added Joy will experience overall. Thank you for your help and for helping me enjoy my time in China....More

    This is our second time we have used your services and we have found the booking process very easy and simple to use.? It would have been helpful to provide some guidance on when tickets are expected to arrive, but the overall booking experience was very easy and simple to use
    The train journey was good and easy with the help of some other passengers. We did not realise there are different type of seating arrangement for the first class section and we had some trouble with placing our suitcases in a safe place, though manage with the help of some other passengers.
    Thanks again for your support, we will be using your services again in the future and will highly recommend your services to our friends and family.

    We were very pleased with the services provided by Travel China. Your staff were thorough in their bookings, double-checking dates and names to ensure that our tickets matched our travel itinerary. At the same time, delivery to the hotel was timely. Overall, we are extremely satisfied with the service that you provided and would highly recommend other travellers to contact you for their rail ticket needs. Thank you so much for your professionalism and quality service.
    By comparison, we have very mixed feelings about China`s rail service in general. On the one hand, the fast trains are luxurious, clean and user-friendly. Announcements are made in English, there is plenty of room for accommodating luggage, and additional services are provided on the train. However, later during our journey, we were unable to purchase tickets on the fast train using either a Visa or MasterCard. This created huge problems and delayed our travel plans as we had to wait over night for a bank to open to convert foreign currency to purchase the tickets using cash in Zhengzhou East train station....More

    Travel China Guide is absolutely fabulous! I do not speak any Chinese and with their help I can catch the train easily. I advise you take the business class as it is quiet and comfortable. The bullet train is perfect except the food needs to be upgraded to International standards AKA wine and western meal options. Once they internationalize the menu it will be almost perfect in business class. Don't delay book with Travel China Guide!

    I had a lovely experience on my journey from Hangzhou to Shanghai. The booking on-line was very easy and efficient with a prompt response. I would recommend booking in advance to any traveller, it takes the stress out of booking a train in a busy station. I also appreciated the step by step travel guide that comes with the ticket, it was a great help. I travelled fist class for some additional comfort. The train was fast and efficient with snacks available on board. Overall I was very impressed with my experience. My only comment would be the lack of signs at the station to guide you to the main ticket office. Thank you travelchinaquide....More
