    My booking experience was wonderful and my entire trip was perfect. The trip from Shanghai to Hangzhou was a great experience. The environment was neat, clean and service was excellent. I would use TCG services again and will do when I return next year for another visit!

    Our experience working with TravelChinaGuide Booking Center as excellent. The follow-up emails were very clear. We had two difficult situations; we did not know where to find a cab when we reached our destination. I would suggest that the guide and driver should have met us at the train station, at a specific place. In the second situation, the driver did not want to take us to the station but back to the hotel. Because our time was so limited we offered to pay the driver additional money to take us to the train. The driver did take us to the train. We were fortunate that the hotel we were staying at packed us a large and delicious breakfast as the food served on the train was not very good.

    Using the high speed train was very good. The train car was very clean and the seats were very comfortable. The waiting rooms were clean and we arrived early enough to get seats. We did not understand the boarding procedure but a fellow traveler assisted us. The train ride was very smooth and reach speeds of over 300 kilometers. The train station, at our destination, was also very clean and very modern.

    Thank you for all your help. You made a trip, we did not think we would have time to make, possible.

    I booked several train tickets with your service for my wife and myself. I was a little worried about booking online but your company was excellent in their service and communication with us. I will use your service from now on if I need to book tickets. Thanks for the great service.

    The service from Travel China Guide worked very well. The online ordering process was easy, and the tickets were delivered at the stipulated time, in a large envelope. I also thought that the mark-up (commission) and the delivery fee were very reasonable and fair. Overall, this was an excellent purchasing experience and I can recommend this service.

    I travelled through China in two weeks and I had a wonderful time. Travelchinaguide.com booked my train tickets between Beijing to Pingyao; Pingyao to Xi'an; a flight from Xi'an to Hangzou and a train from Hangzhou to Shanghai. They were extremely fast, effective and responsive during the booking process.
    All train tickets were flawlessly delivered at my hotel and I received some clever tips about logistics at the railway stations without even having to ask. My initial China Eastern flight to Hangzhou was cancelled and I was instantly informed by travelchinaguide.com. In summary, I would highly recommend the services of travelchinaguide.com to other travellers....More
