    I booked multiple train tickets online directly and selected delivery service. But the ticket for my train from Guangzhou to Hong Kong cannot be delivered, and we need to pick up the tickets for this trip by myself at the station. It was a little inconvenience. Though you explained it in email, but I still you could find a solution of this problem later. Whatever, your service is highly recommended.

    Due to unpredictable delay of our international flight, our schedule need to be re-arranged, Monica Yuan patiently helped us changing train tickets and gave us many suggestions, so that we did not waste much time there. The next trips went extremely well and we were very satisfied with you service.

    Thanks for your service and help. Every single advice from you is useful. It is our first time to come China, we read the email from you carefully. When we have any question, we always email you and you respond us quickly. What we feel so good is you never push us to book the tour with you, just answer my question. Keep up!

    I always prefer a window seat as I travel alone in China. So I remarked my request for window seat of all my train trips. Travelchinaguide gave me window seat on most of trains but failed to get seat F from Guangzhou to Hong Kong since there was no such seat available. I enjoyed the beautiful view out of the window. Thank you for the great service.

    Options are very limited on your APP, but I failed to find any other ways to book tickets. I thought maybe ChinaTrain is the only way. Finally, booked with your company. Your service is good, I got the prompt confirmation.
