    I contacted several agencies before booking my tickets about the chance of getting seats together with window view. The lady I contact in TravelChinaGuide is the most professional one in giving detailed reply. Finally, she got all the tickets for me as requested. Thank you for your help. I will recommend your service to my friend.

    TCG is really a professional and efficient team in organizing my china trip. I was nervous at first, but they performed in a perfect way to make my trip easy and wonderful. They kept me informed with every booking step and issued my desired seats. The tickets were waiting for us in my appointed hotel which made me very comfort and happy. Excellent service!

    We double booked our trips and double paid for them. We have no conscious about that, but your guys emailed me immediately and told me you will refund me one of the payments later. You’re so nice and your service is great.

    Was easy to book and to redeem the ticket at the station without speaking English. A quick note, I have found you can pick up the ticket at any window at the ticket office, so you don't have to read Chinese.

    I booked 5 trips on your site for my holiday travelling to China. Your online Livechat function was really easy to use. It provided me with comprehensive information on the stations, trains, tickets and how to use china rail. And the booking consultant Josey kept me update on every booking step. Would definitely recommend!

    Booking was simple, and our seats were great! We were able to keep our luggage with us, as there was room in front of our seats.
