    The booking service has been excellent. You have kept me informed and up to date with any changes. The only draw back was that I was not able to pay using my mastercard.

    We would like to inform you that everything has been realized as it was scheduled. We had no problem with our tickets. We found your service fee very reasonable. The information we got from your pages was really perfect. We could circulate on our own according to your guide. Thank you for your help and we will come back to you when we want to travel in China. Of course we would recommend to our friends your web site when they travel in China.

    I was very satisfied with the service. The website was very easy to use and your prices were unbeatable on value.

    I am very satisfied with how all the process went on. You were very fast in replying to my emails. Eventhough the train station in Beijing was very very crowdy and process of getting on a train was very slow the overall experience travelling with train was great.

    I can say that my experience was a very good one. The booking was easy, the instructions were clear. Even finding the train in the station was much easier than i feared. All in all i would definitely recommend your services to anyone traveling to China.

    I was very happy with your service, especially the women who answered my questions in several phone calls. And it was great that the ticket was collected easily at station by showing passport. Many thanks.

    Thank you, Josey
    1. The booking experience was seamless. It was very convenient booking over the internet and the customer service aspect of the purchasing experience was great. I really appreciated the timely response to emails and the effort that was put in to answer all of my questions.
    2. Overall, my general impression of my train journey was a positive one, the check-in process was well planned out using the issuing statement that was provided to me and made it really convenient when collecting our tickets at the Railway Station. The Railway Station facilities including the terminal, platform, and waiting room were all in good order with many staff members speaking acceptable levels of english, which made the experience of journey that much more enjoyable. The on-train facilities, including the washroom were also well maintained.
    Overall, my experience using Travel China Guide left a lasting impression on me. I will be sure to use this service again then next time I travel to China and would highly recommend it to others. I have one suggestion however that would make the check-in process much easier. I would include the address of the Railway Station in both English and Chinese in the emails as I had a difficult time locating one train station as it had been relocated to a different location. Overall, great job.
