    It’s very easy to buy anything in China if you have Wechat. I also use Wechat to buy train tickets with TravelChinaguide. I received the confirmation number within 5 mins after I finish the payments. Their service was amazing. I will work with TravelChinaGuide again next time.

    The entire process was fantastic. The train tickets I booked are hard to get, the operator recommended me the transfer train immediately. It is acceptable for me. Except this, the whole procedure is perfect.

    It is a pleasant journey by China high speed trains. It is an unforgettable experience. The high speed train is so much better than flying. It is clean, safe and comfortable. I will choose it again for my next travel in China.

    We had a wonderful trip in Guilin and Yangsho this month. We are impressed by the beautiful scenery. And also it’s comfortable to take bullet trains. TravelChinaGuide makes it easy to travel at a strange country. We will recommended your service to friends.

    Thank you so much for your support. Previously I have booked train tickets through your company many times, and they would always send tickets to my hotel through SF express with no problems. It would take 2-3 days. This time I collected the ticket by myself at the station, it also worked well. thumps up service!

    Very good service! I will recommend TravelChinaGuide to all of my friends. I would take a train from Guilin to Guangzhou, but unluckily I lost my tickets. My contact operator Sunny helped a lot, I paid for the new replacement and had my money refunded at the arrival station. Sunny communicated with all relative persons on the way, which I appreciated very much.

    Dear travelchinaguide. I think your service is fantastic, and I’m very satisfied. If I should suggest you something to make costumers life easier, do make it possible to pay train, flight and pickup services with credit cards on your homepage. When coming to China for a holyday, spending time in a queue in a bank are not ones first priority. Anyway Thanks for a good service till now.

    Thank you for arranging the tickets for my wife and I, between Guangzhou and Guilin. We are very satisfied with all matters concerning the booking and the service onboard. The train is very clear and very smooth, smoother than our expectation! We are happy with your services and shall use travelchinaguide in any future visit.
