    Our train trip from Beijing to Harbin was very nice, quiet, very comfortable.
    Your instructions helped a lot to understand the ticket and how to find the correct platform. Train was very clean and staff helpful. We would definitely recommend friend to catch the train so that they can see more. Also the experience of the bullet train was super. Thank you for the experience and very professional way you helped and assisted us in this experience.

    1) The service from TCG was very good. The tickets were at the hostel at the right time and the schedule was perfectly comprehensible. So i have no suggestions on the booking system.

    2) Our trip included only Beijing and Harbin but it was a great experience for our group of 6 people, because it was our first travel to an Asian country. The people there were very friendly. The only thing that was a little bit difficult was the Beijing Railway Station. At that railway station there were no English signs, but the security speaks English very well, so they showed us the right way.
    So overall, everything work well. Thank you for your service, it was great.

    I found this service ok.
    First I was hesitating when train ticket delivery seemed to be to the hotel but seem there was no other way.
    Train journey itself was great. The class of tickets was right and just what we were expecting. Train left in time and entered to Beijing South just in right time. I was impressed.
    Also starting station was great but one minus point to staff who did not speak English. Even coffee bar staff spoke English much better.
    Service at Beijing South was POOR. There are two taxi stations and private taxis were around us trying to give their services....More

    Thank you for the excellent service. It was efficient, communication was swift, and everything arrived as planned.

    I must say, I am very pleased with your service. You responded to my questions swiftly and friendly, the tickets were neatly delivered at my hostel, so I have nothing to complain about! Really happy doing business with you. The train journey itself was quite nice. I should add that I had a G train, modern and fast.
    A suggestion for the train company might be to sometimes indicate which part of China the train was in. I sometimes wondered which city I was passing by. But of course this is just a minor issue.
    Hope to do business with you later.

    I was very impressed with your services. the ticket for return to Beijing from Harbin was at my hotel when I arrived from the US. I also purchased an airline ticket which you helped me secure. Would recommend your agency to friends

    We enjoyed our experience of China railways very much, and found the booking, checking in etc. experience fine, as long as you allowed plenty of time. We were treated with care and courtesy on the trains, which were very punctual. We traveled on three different types of train, and were fascinated in all cases.
    If there are any negatives there are two: 1) It was very difficult to discover at Beijing Station how actually to gain access to the station proper. There were a large number of entry kiosks, at which the ticket had to be presented, but you needed to go in through the correct one. All the information was only in Chinese so it took a bit of working out!! 2) The sleeper train was cold. The heating in the compartment did not come on until the morning, when it was warming up anyway, and the bed covers provided were very thin - so it was something of a cold night!!...More
