    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.

    We just want to let you know how grateful we were that you organised all our tickets in China and had them delivered to our hotel. We couldn't have managed it without you.

    Thank you very much for such great support during the train booking process. I was very satisfied.
    Check-in, waiting rooms and boarding is pretty similar to a flight. The trains are very punctually and clean. I can recommend train travelling as a very good opportunity to fly if there is a good connection.

    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

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
