    It is very easy and convenient to book China train tickets through the China train APP. The train information is clear. I just need choose my preferred train and pay for the order. They will email me the confirmation. I show the confirmation and the passport at train station to take the train. Everything works well. So easy!

    Thank you for your earnest endeavors to grab the train tickets during your Golden Week. And I have to admit that there were mountains of mountains of people at every site we visited. If possible, please do not go there at that time. Except that, other things went beautifully.

    Regarding the situation, the trains between Hong Kong and mainland China were stopped, we were forced to cancel our trip to mainland China. We were disappointed that we couldn't go but due to the seriousness of this illness, it was vital for us to stay in our country. Anyway we would like to show our appreciation to your kind service. Look forward to book tickets with you again.

    We took the train to Qianwei County from Chengdu, a little bit south of Leshan. It is a very old train. At the end of the train, there is an old coal mine, 46 meters underground. You can go inside and do a tour, which was very cool.

    I think this is the 5th or 6th year I’m using Travel China Guide and I have never been disappointed. I know I need not worry when I use your services. Thank you for your excellent service.

    I have planned the trip to China and made the train booking with TravelChinaGuide.com about 5 months ago. However, I have to cancel this trip due to Corona Virus. Then I contact TravelChinaGuide.com to cancel the booking. They confirmed the cancellation fee and refunded me full payment soon. Once the situation gets better, I will still make the booking with TravelChinaGuide.com.

    Your service is better than we expected. As we know, it is not easy to get the train tickets in China. Therefore, we chose to use a local well-famous agency to book for us. Your service proved that our choice is the best and we got what we needed.
