    My wife and I had a great trip to China. Everything in connection with our train and flight service booked through Travel China Guide has worked perfect. The day we arrived in Beijing was the tickets delivered to our hotel, which was not as well organized as Travel China. We are also impressed of your homepage where it is possible to book all connections for an itinerary in row. We have told our friends about Travel China Guide, and I am convinced some of them shall use your services. Hopefully we will return for another itinerary and certainly we shall use Travel China Guide....More

    It was a pleasure for us to take the train as we have got a good place and it was spacious.
    When we were at the Beijing Station, it was a little chaos as we did not know where to go in the waiting room. When it was time for queuing to show our tickets, we were astonished to see a crowd of people just overpass us and push to get inside.
    When we were at Taiyuan Station, it was really nice to see some gates where we did not get problem and they make queue to get in the train. The persons working in the train are very considerate and we were happy to have a nice trip....More

    We were very pleased with the service, after being a bit concerned about purchasing train tickets on line.
    We appreciated the fluid emails, advising us about the status of our tickets, as well as, the tracking information provided. The tickets arrived as stated and we were very pleased. Thank you for your service and we look forward to utilizing your services in the future.

    Your service was excellent. I greatly appreciated the prompt responses to my queries and the delivery of the tickets to my hostel. I very much enjoyed the journey - the helpful guides on train travel in China that you provided a link to in your email made navigating Beijing station very easy and the journey itself was everything I had expected it to be.
    Many thanks again for your excellent service.

    I was quite happy with the service provided in getting the voucher. We took the subway to the Beijing South Railway station the day prior to travel to pick up our tickets - it took us a while to find out where to go, but once we found out and stood in line, it was pretty straightforward to get our tickets.Note that people do not strictly follow queue system and we had two people just come in front of us and go to the ticket window..
    The next day at the train station was also pretty straight forward. It is quite a long way from the subway up to the actual train station and with the big crowds at the security check, to avoid stress, next time I think we will try and go a bit earlier.
    The train was very comfortable and we enjoyed the train journey very much. All in all, the train experience was very good - we enjoyed it.

    I found the service of Travel China Guide very helpful. The website is very informative and the process for purchasing my train ticket was efficient and speedy. At the train stations in Beijing in particular and Harbin, it was easy to find my way around to the ticket office and platforms and I had no complaints with the trains which were timely and well-maintained.

    I am very happy with the service provided from the time I sent through the request till the time I received the ticket at the hotel in Beijing. It was important that I was kept informed and Candy did exactly that through out. The ticket was waiting for me by the time I checked into the hotel and a few days before that, I had already received an email informing me that it was sent out and requested for a confirmation when I received it.
    The only point I would add is, might be useful to acknowledge that when I informed ticket has been received. a short email to confirm that would be great. The only reason I say that is that I didn't know if my email has gone through so I don't know if it was received.. I know China does sometime block certain email servers.
    Otherwise I am very happy with the service and saved me a lot of time at Beijing train station. I also got the seat I wanted which is the single business class seat. Thank you very much!
