    We had a wonderful time in China. The modern train service is amazing, very fast, comfortable and reliable. I doubt if I could have booked the tickets myself and found your service excellent. The train section on your website was very helpful and guided me to either English speaking windows, or the correct window to collect advance tickets. The railways are easy to use and are a very enjoyable way of getting around China. The tickets are also affordable.

    The service is efficient, thank you.
    I think the service fee is too high for just booking train tickets. I might look to see if there is somewhere cheaper next time.

    Everything went so perfect from beginning till end! We are so impressed with your most efficient service and will definitely rely on you again. The train ride was very pleasant except one kid on the train was very much misbehaving which annoyed us. Thank you.

    We recently returned from a trip to China, which has been successful thanks to the assistance of your company to purchase train tickets. So I use the service for the first time, so I had some doubts and anxiety. But when I finally had the paper printed at station, I feel I did a good choice of your company. Thank you for your excellent service. I will recommend your company to their friends and acquaintances. I look forward to further cooperation.
