    Everything was fine. We received the tickets in the hotel in time and the train trip was good. Speciel thanks to Sunny Zhang for the great support.

    Our train journey was great. From booking the tickets to boarding the train we had no problems - even the queues weren't as bad as we anticipated (although we were there at 06.30am!) . Your team and website is excellent help and provided us with very useful information on using trains in China before we left. Many thanks

    Always great service and very prompted reply to questions and queries. Much appreciated.

    It is our 2nd or 3rd time booking a train with your company. We had no problem whatsoever. It is very easy and convenient. We arrived at the station every time 1h before departure and is was more than enough time. It is less stressful to pick up the ticket a day before if possible but it worked well picking it up the day of as well. We do enjoy the rail service in China. There is enough space for legs which is great, even with the second class tickets.

    I am now back home in England. Everything was fine with my rail tickets and they were all delivered to my first hotel in Guangzhou. Thank you for your assistance and very good service. I hope to return to China and will definitely use you if i require to purchase rail tickets

    I want to thank you. Your service was excellent reflecting all changes in schedule or unplanned situations. For example when I forgot to pick up my tickets at the hotel, you were able to quickly organize alternatives and you provided me instructions and chinese translations for station and train staff. The capability to solve such situations is for me the most important value and it is worth for cost of your service fee.

    On both journeys the online booking process was quick and simple to complete. I particularly valued the email help regarding how to collect tickets from the station. Furthermore the train journeys themselves were as expected with no issues or delays. But most importantly, the individual service I had from you Ivy was exemplary. You were very responsive when I needed to amend traveller details and you gave me complete confidence that I was personally valued. Thank you! I will use your services again whenever I need to travel in China and I will recommend you without hesitation....More

    Having booked previously, I was somewhat familiar with the process, so I did not have too much trouble booking a ticket. I was hoping for a high speed train from Shenzhen West to Guangzhou but perhaps one is not available. I ended up booking a "sleeper" compartment, which was fine but really not needed for the 2 hour train ride. I do wish that the train had wi-fi access.

    I was very satisfied with the price and service. Without the service I would have had to personally go down to Guangzhou South Railway Station and stand in line for the ticket.
    With the service I just go to the website. Then see which days have seats available in the class I wanted to purchase. Then buy the ticket on line. Then all I needed to do was go to any train station to pick up the ticket. Guangzhou East was only a few subway stops away. And at 9:00pm there was no line whatsoever. I have waited in lines for half an hour or more. I was so happy to be able to go to a train station a few stops away. And not stand in line at all because it was at night. If I needed to purchase my own ticket during the day, I probably would have had to stand in line for awhile. I am very satisfied with the cost and benefit of the service....More
