    TCG booked 5 trains for us, and we had no problems at all. All of our trips we got seats together in same row! TCG issued our tickets at the earliest releasing point and emailed us confirmation for each trip, which was very very great and efficient.

    After doing my research online I’d decided to book my trip with travel China guide, so pleased I did. Booked a business class ticket ( well worth the extra money if budget allows) from Hong Kong to Beijing in September 2019. Very easy process and was kept well informed throughout. What a fantastic experience something I will remember forever, the train itself runs on time is clean and polite staff, even if the language was a slight issue, luckily a fellow passenger was able to translate for me. The lie fiat seat was very easy to operate and made the journey very comfortable, bring a good book and you’ll be grand .As a smoker I was a little concerned about the 9 hours without a smoke, but needn’t had worried, your able to pop off at each stop and have a cigarette on the platform, don’t move too far away from the train doors though, the train stopped 3-5 minutes each time. Overall I’m so glad I was fortunate enough to be able to do this fantastic trip , please if you get the opportunity grab it. ...More

    You emailed us that the tickets would be confirmed 30 days before our departure, and we did receive the confirmation that day. Thank you so much for your wonderful service and we will recommend you to others.

    We took the train for my trip from Hong Kong to Beijing, Xian and finally Shanghai. The train journey is smooth than expectation. And we visited forbidden city, the Army which are the highlights of our trips. They are amazing, surely worth a second time visiting. We really enjoy our trip and the high speed trains.
