    Firstly I would like to thank you for your kind services.
    The service provided by your organization is the very best I have had for a long time from among so many places I have traveled. The booking process is so easy and your prompt response to queries, covering all aspects is so good. And as promised, the tickets were waiting for me when I arrived and checked in at the Novotel Hotel in Beijing. Now that is called service. You are doing a terrific job. Please keep up the good work.

    The trip was great. Booking is the booking. Of course, it would be easier without passport requirement, which you cannot influence of course. One special comment. For a tourist it is not obvious, that how long it takes to change trains. If would be helpful if you listed this information online so users can choose most suitable trains.

    Thanks again for your service and efforts!

    Everything worked well, thank you - except that I had to go to the train station in advance to collect the ticked. Would it be possible to print it out from the automatic machines?

    5 star all the way! The booking consultants were incredible helpful and prompt in responding to any questions we had. Everything was in place exactly as they said it would be. The train journey was fantastic and we were so glad we had booked our tickets in advance as the station is vert busy when we get there. but we followed the steps and go through to the train smoothly, thanks to Travel Guide China. Will certainly recommend and use again!
