    Amazing! I do not need a real ticket but only show my passport to board the train. The train booking service was easy and efficient. I greatly admire the way you do business. Thanks for all of your help.

    I booked the train tickets 2 months before the travel date. When the tickets are released to the public, they emailed me the confirmation. When the tickets were delivered, they also emailed me the express order number. They always kept me updated each step. When the tickets were delivered the hotel, they emailed me. TravelChinaGuide.com offered the best service to book train tickets.

    In recent years, I have been to China many times for business trips and visited many places in my spare time. I especially like the peaceful landscape of Hangzhou West Lake. Usually the high-speed rail is my prime choice to travel from Shanghai to Hangzhou. Thank you for your great service.

    We ordered 6 tickets in total from the Website of TravelChinaGuide.com. It is very convenient. When we arrived at the station, we only showed our passports at entrance. Everything is correct. TravelChinaGuide.com. Is reliable to book train tickets.

    I feel so happy to share my experience with others. I must say thank you to my booking consultant of TravelChinaGuide.com. She was patient and friendly. I booked several trips through this site. Those trains I booked were with good timing and less duration. In the beginning, one of the trains was not available, she emailed me and asked me to wait for a few days. Several days later, she told me the train was cancelled and offered me a backup train, which was better for my schedule. They just charged a small amount of service fee, but they kept checking the train information and offered me the backup choice to smooth my trip. Next time, I will still book train tickets with them....More

    The train booking service of TravelChinaGuide is excellent. To book train tickets online is very easy and their confirmation is clear. However, we are confused of the train stations in each city. There are several train stations, we do not know which one we should go. After double checking with the booking consultant, we were clear and went to the right train station.

    This is our first time to China. It’s nervous to take high speed train because of the language barriers. Thanks for Miss.Zhao’s help and we find the correct palace of railway station. We checked in smoothly and board the train in time. Thanks for your email.

    I have requested Travel China Guide for reserving long distance train tickets of Hangzhou to Beijing, which was perfect. Tickets can only be booked up to a month in advance, and via TCG a request can be made much earlier. If you fill out the request form with the requested trip details and passport numbers, they will monitor availability and book the tickets when available.
    You only have to exchange the voucher on the station. Very easy and without the hassle. I love TCG!
