    We have been very satisfied with your service regarding the delivery of the tickets. When we arrived at our hotel in Guangzhou the tickets were already waiting for us. Compliments!

    Super helpful and professional staff. On our way back, we were afraid that we would miss our train, and because it was during one of the Chinese festivals, it can be very difficult to change your tickets for the same day. We contacted them and they were able to inform us about later connections and also instructed us about how to change our tickets, which can ve tricky if your Chinese is pretty poor.

    I thought the booking service was very helpful and thorough. You had a good grasp of the procedures and solutions to purchasing the tickets and delivering them in a timely fashion. I was very satisfied overall. I thought the way you handled e-mail correspondence was very effective.

    The train from Guilin to Guangzhou was a pretty good experience. The check in at Guilin station was simple and straightforward, and the waiting room was large and filled with people of all nationalities. The train itself was very well-maintained, and the seat were comfortable. Although the train arrived in Guangzhou a little bit later than expected, this wasn't a real issue. ...More

The train itself was very well-maintained, and the beds were comfortable. Although the train arrived in Guangzhou over three hours late, this wasn't a real surprise, and it was a bit difficult to figure out the breakfast menu on the train for anyone who doesn't speak fluent Chinese. But that was also to be expected....More

    The booking procedure was fluent and the train summary very clear and customizable. I'm not giving full stars just because I wasn't aware of the non-effective booking even after the purchasing and, though present in the Terms and Regulation page, it wasn't sufficiently underlined during the transaction process (i.e.: when it comes down to money). The customer service was very thorough and responsed very quickly.
    I might reuse this service, whenever in China again.

    We booked 3 diffrent train trips for a group of 30 people, one of them a night sleeper. Everything went well. Especially the communication was fast and perfect. The train tickets were punctually delivered to an address.

    Also when trains were overbooked already, Travel China Guide offered alternatives.

    All in all we are thankful for the service!

    Was all in all perfect; two points I would recommend: You should persuade your customers much more, that they let their train tickets be sent to their hotels - I hesitated and decided only in the last minute to do so, but I'm pretty sure that it would have been very stressful to pick them up at the train station.
    Maybe you should underline more that the tickets are for a certain train wagon and certain seat number, nearly missed that info.

    The booking process was perfect thank you, easy to use. The problem was it took over an hour to collect the ticket in Guangzhou and was very stressful as we had to push in front of others to get a ticket at the last minute and run to our train.

    Hello, The train booking was very good experience. The train itself was excellent and service was great. However, I will say that picking up the tickets at the counter in train station is very bad. There are too many people and English is a problem explaining to pick up tickets. Staff in Train station are not will to help tourist. I would recommend that Travel China tell all customers to have their tickets delivered to hotel, or Travel China company speak with train station staff and explain them how to serve the tourists....More
