    We had a great experience booking tickets with Travel China Guide. We arrived in Beijing and had business in Tianjin, we traveled by train and also booked our entrance tickets with them. This was our first trip to China and we do not speak any Mandarin. The tickets and instructions were perfect and the trip went off without a hitch. I highly recommend their service.

    Everything was fine about our trip. We really enjoyed our time in Guilin, which was very beautiful. China railway stations were tidy and clean. Bullet trains were comfortable for a long trip. That was a wonderful trip!

    It was a wise choice to book tickets with TravelChinaGuide that was a professional and reliable travel agency. Our tickets were confirmed once we finished payment online. The confirmation email was also very clear and easy to understand. In a word, we are very satisfied.

    When we go the terracotta warriors, we can’t find the place where we put our luggage. So we called you and you talked with the staff in the scenic spot. Then the staff point the direction for us and we can find our luggage back. You are so nice and friendly. Thank you so much.

    China bullet trains are a good option for traveling. We booked 5 business class seat tickets from Xiamen to Hong Kong with TCG. They offered us much useful and detailed information about tickets collection. The train staff offered us delicious food. We really enjoyed our journey. Thanks for your their service!

    Thanks for your help to change my train ticket of HK/Xiamen. It is a pity that my trip of Xiamen to Wuyishan could not be changed. We do not know that we cannot make change online if we collected paper tickets out. Therefore, my suggestion to other travelers is that please do not pick up the paper tickets in advance in case there will be any change.
