    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.

    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

    I've been very happy with your service and just delighted that I am able to book online now. In the past I've had to rely on my student assistants and since I like to travel frequently, it can be a burden for them. So far everything has gone smoothly and I really appreciate your offering this service!

    Everything worked very well,your suggestions were precious and I was very satisfied about your service specially for the mail whereby you followed step by step our trip. Just two advances: the taxy service in Beijing and Harbin don't like pick up foreigners (this can be a problem for get the railways station) but no problem in Shanghai and in the south of China, and the crowded queues in the waiting room in front at the gate for the train. Thank very mutch again.
