    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.

    We used China Travel Guide service to book our train tickets and we are really pleased with everything. They respond quickly, we did not have any problems with exchanging them to paper tickets. They charge lowest commission fee but with the best service. I will recommend to everyone.

    Everything worked perfectly during my train trip. I booked couple of trips on this website. One of them was sold out due to the Chinese national holiday. However, my travel advisor Ivy contacted me by phone to offer another available train and it was booked once we confirmed it. I liked their efficiency and will book with them again.

    I had a good experience with your company and tour in China. The new bullet train from Chaoshan to Hong Kong west is fantastic. It runs stable and on time. Thank you for your great service.
