    I'm using TCG since years and am very satiesfied with the service. If there are any problems (cancelling or change), TCG is working fast, good and friendly.

    A bus ticket service would be very nice (or maybe just information to bus service). Payment by credit card could be easier (direct online service)

    I just wanted to tell you that everything has worked out perfectly and I will certainly recommend your services to anyone who will travel to China.
    The only things I would share with other travellers:
    - No one speaks english and Google translate doesn't work well in translating Chinese to English.
    - When taking a taxi, always insist using the meter

    The booking service was very good once we understood the process. North Americans are used to a single phone call or e-mail to make travel reservations while TravelChinaGuide involved several follow-up contacts. But the responses were very prompt and let us feel that everything was being looked after.

    We are very pleased that we took the train - not only from Hangzhou to Shanghai but then a few days later, on to Ningbo. Train travel was the best way to really see the land. The bullet trains were a marvel - clean, comfortable and on time. Big windows to enjoy the countryside. The Internet had prepared us for the Chinese train system, but we also found train station staff helpful to foreigners who obviously spoke or read no Chinese. So although the trip was a bit of an adventure, we would certainly recommend train travel. However, we would suggest strongly that travelers learn about and appreciate the many differences between train systems in their home country and in China. Sometimes these differences can be confusing if a traveler has not educated himself.

    Thank you.

    Your booking service is excellent! Your following up and advising the status of the reservation cannot be faulted and the tickets were waiting for us on arrival at the hotel as promised.

    The bullet train between Hangzhou and Suzhou via Shanghai is fantastic. Timed train is extremely smooth and comfortable.

    I would highly recommend both your booking service and the train to anyone who is interested.
