    I was very satisfied with your booking service, it was easy to use and both the collection of tickets and the train journeys went smoothly. I'll definitely be using Travel China Guide to book my train tickets again. The only thing I would like to let other travellers know is that you can't take aerosols on the train. Ours were confiscated at security.

    We are very satisfied with your service and the additional information. Everything went well during our journey through China and it was one big adventure. We were very surprised about the effective boarding system at the train stations. For our trip from HK, it is indeed a little bit more complicated than our other trips. I understand it is a must as the immigration process occured there. Anyway, the whole process is very good order.

    Your service worked perfectly. Thank you.

    My only challenge was getting inside the train station to pick up my ticket. Once I understood where to show my passport at the entrance of the station, I was able to go through security and pick up my ticket.

    I will use your service again next time I need to take the train.
