    I booked several trains for my parents. It was the first time, they come to China. I needed to book all the tickets for them in advance. I booked all the tickets through TravelChinaGuide.com. I chose the delivery service. The delivery fee was a small amount. When they arrived at the hotel. The hotel staff gave the express. The tickets were lying in the envelope. They enjoyed the train trip.

    We intended to take the only one available direct bullet train from Hong Kong [West Kowloon] to Nanning. While, due to the flight delay, it was a risk to catch the train. The agent recommended us change the date to the following day. Otherwise, there would be no refund from the railway if we did miss the train and it would be too late to make the change. Yes, we trusted her and took the train on the next day. They are professional and trustworthy.

    It was a safe journey to take train from Xian to Chengdu. Due to coronavirus, we need show healthy QR code when we take train or other transportation in China. There will be staff taking temperature for each passenger. Those measured protected passengers health. We were very satisfied with this train trip.

    It is very easy and convenient to book train tickets through TravelChinaguide. I just need submit the online booking and pay for the order. After that they will email me the confirmation. I can collect the paper ticket at any train station in Chengdu, I need show the confirmation number and my passport, and then the station staff will give me the paper ticket. Everything is so easy for a foreigner.

    The train schedule was punctual and the booking steps were easy. I received full guidance on how to collect the paper ticket and how to use china train after the payment online. Of course they charged a small service fee on booking the ticket, but it saved you much time to wait in the long line at the train station, and they assured that we could have a confirmed seat before our trip. I will still book via this site for my next trip.
