    It is my second time coming to China. Last time, I went to train station to buy the train tickets. I was waiting in the long line to buy the tickets. I need gave cash. It was really inconvenient for me. This time, I booked the tickets online, when I was in my country. I received the confirmation before I came to China. Then I came to China, I just showed the confirmation at train station and the staff gave me the paper tickets quickly. It is very easy to book the tickets now.

    We had contacted several agencies before we decided which one would be our first choice. Finally, we came to TravelChinaGuide asking for the travel advice. As the clients said on their website, they are responsible, professional and efficient.

    We have worked with TCG for 2 years. We love to take bullet trains to travel in China. Trains are most safe and punctual way. It is very easy to book train tickets with TCG. We can book tickets at any time we need and select seats we preferred. We’d like to recommend bullet trains to all travelers who want to visit China.

    We have to say that TCG is a reliable travel agency. We had to cancel all bookings due to coronavirus but they proceeded full refund to us without any charge. They were very considerable and sweet. We’d like to recommend TCG to everyone.
