    Taking advantage of booking train tickets through Travel China was one of the smartest decisions we made on the trip. Booking train tickets for our whole trip and then having the tickets delivered to the first hotel of our stay worked perfectly.
    We added an excursion by train to Hangzhou while we were in Shanghai. We had to stand in the ticket line at the Shanghai Hongqio station and it was a nightmare! People cutting the line, banging on the ticket windows, yelling. The line next to us had a couple with about 30 passports booking everyone's tickets for a tour. The lines are so slow and so few of them are open, and this is an ultramodern railway station. The reason is that most passengers use the automated ticket machines but they only work with a Chinese ID. Anyway, booking train tickets in advance was quick, guaranteed, and worth the small fee....More

    Everything went perfect. We received all our train tickets by mail when we arrived our hotel in Hangzhou and then we could travel with them with no problem at all. Thanks a lot you were very helpfull in the booking process and all the information you gave us was also usefull and accurate. Thanks again! We had a great time in china.

    All was OK and very comfortable, the only thing was long queue at the main railway station to collect the electronic ticket, i arrive to the airport and went to the station and i wait one hour only to collect my ticket, it will be better if you can arrange special desk for foreign transit passenger to collect the electronic ticket very fast.

    I enjoyed my recent train trip to Shanghai. The trip back was a little more comfortable as there is more room on the bottom bunk than the middle and upper. Otherwise, the China Trains are an economical and generally comfortable way to travel. There was a lot of food and fruit being sold.

    We were very pleased with the kind and attentive service we received by Travel China Guide. They booked our train tickets with quick and easy instructions and even processed a change in itinerary we requested with no problems. The tickets were ready at the train station and all we had to do was provide the confirmation number and show our passports.
    For those who are going through the major train stations we do recommend you arrive early (at least one hour ??maybe two) in order to get used to how the station departure/arrival system works and to make sure you get in the necessary waiting areas for your train. Lines are always an issue, so just watch others when they get up to get in line for the train, and for your convenience, get in the line as early as you can to make boarding easier. It is suggested you take the very fast “D" or even faster “G" trains the speed is awesome and the price is negligible for a trip that takes at the most half as long as the older and slower trains. The biggest difference is there are no sleeper cars on these trains (that we know of), but you don’t need them for the shorter time you are on the train. Second class seats are fairly comfortable and there are plenty of snacks available for purchase, but make sure you have “small money because they prefer not to change bills larger than 50 yuan. We have not tried first class, but will on future trips just to see what the difference really is for a very small amount of extra money.
    We highly recommend this company for any of your train travel needs, and very much appreciate the prompt and personal service we received.
