    Last Friday, we took a train from Beijing to Harbin. It is a long train journey. The train is clean and it is fast. The train journey is comfortable. The high speed train is really convenient. Next time, I will still take a high speed train to Shenzhen or other city.

    We didn't book tour but several train tickets with travel China guide.
    We asked delivery service to our first hotel, when we got there the tickets were waiting for us! They even emailed to check whether we received the ticket. I would recommend the booking service because the process was easy and the attention to detail was really good!

    I booked a ticket from Beijing to Shanghai and I wanted G393, which is the fastest train but still takes 7 hours and 30min. We originally choosed second class seats but changed our mind to first class later as we worried it would be hard by second class seat for this 7.5 hours trip. I appreciate Ivy in helping us with this upgrade. Would definitely recommend her!

    The booking service is great, I got the tickets confirmation within 30 minutes. Although we booked high speed trains for all the trips, while the train from Beijing to Harbin was not as good as Shanghai to Beiijing. Overall, the travel by train is convenient, the trains are punctual, and you don’t need to get to the station too early.

    Many thanks for the travel china guide. We are 9 people and we would like to seat together. When we checked the tickets, there were only 13 tickets left now, we thought we can’t be together. But how lucky we are, 7 people in one carriage and two people in another carriage. Thanks for issuing the tickets together for us and thanks for all of your efforts. The high speed train is tidy and clean. We’re very glad to book the train tickets with you.
