    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.

    I appreciate your effort but it’s difficult to travel in China! The train station was so crowded, and this caused much distress and inconvenience as I tried to find the ticket counter to pick up my ticket. Fortunately, we called your company for help and managed to collect our tickets on time. Many thanks for your kind explanation and I really appreciate the instructions.

    The booking experience through TCG booking center is really good.

    I had no problems with my trains in China during the last 3 years of use.

    My only suggestion: keep doing this great job! Congratulations!

    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.
