    Great Service

    Overall I am quite please with eh booking service amd would definitely do this again through you. For me it was great that I could communicate with someone so quickly in Wechat. The 10 hour train journey went smoothly and my arrival was on time. As for the train service itself there needs to be more variety of food that you can order as there are only snacks and not so many snacks to choose from. There is an APP you can use to order food but its in Chinese and I needed some help from a friend to figure how to order. When my order arrived the train assistant couldn't speak english and she wasnt sure the delivery was mine. So this took a few minutes to resolve.

    Overall I am happy with the service you provided.

    That was an amazing journey in China. We began at Beijing, then went to Xian and other cities. It’s very convenient to take high speed trains to travel. It saved much time and energy. We appreciated TCG’ information and help. Hope for another chance to work with you.
