    I am very satisfied with the service I get from you. Even calling me up because you saw my transfer times were very short to make sure if I can catch the train. That's great service. I can see you made the effort not only to issue the ticket, but also to make sure my trips are in order.

    I would like to thank you for the easy and professional help I received from your company. The purchase of the ticket was very easy. I also appreciate that when I needed to change one of the date, it was allowed at no cost. I would recommend this process to others travelling in China.

    Hello,

    THE TCG PROVIDED GOOD SERVICE, AND CONSTANT UPDATES OF INFORMATION. THE ONLY PROBLEM WAS REGARDING PAYPAL - YOU REQUIRED MY HUSBAND TO CONFIRM THAT I COULD USE HIS PAYPAL ACCOUNT. I DO NOT UNDERSTAND THIS REQUIREMENT.

    WAITING ROOM WAS NOT AVAILABLE DESPITE FIRST CLASS TICKET. WAITING EXPERIENCE IS NOT GOOD. I STOOD FOR 1.5 HOURS AND I WAS NOT AT THE FRONT OF THE QUEUE. OTHERS MUST HAVE BEEN THERE MUCH LONGER. THE AIRPORTS IN SMALL CITIES ARE THE SAME. I UNDERSTAND THIS IS NOT A TCG PROBLEM....More

    I booked altogether nine tickets through your agency. I am pleased with your service. You have done a great job! I know it is not easy to buy train tickets in China. The communication has been excellent. You answer the emails straight away. If I write in the evening (sometimes late) I have an answer in the morning. You also handle money in a good way. Since I booked several tickets at the same time and there were many changes, it was hard to keep track of it all. I found that according to my calculations the amount was different from yours. I was amazed when you listened to me and agreed with me. Our train journeys were very pleasant. No problems at all. People are very friendly and helpful. It is always nice to talk with other passengers. I never feel bored during train journeys in China. ...More

    The train reservation procedure and taking the night train was a very positive experience. Your service was excellent and we went a day earlier to pick up our printed tickets, which we received without any problems, once we figured out which counter.. We arrived on time at the station in Kunming, and this is necessary for security reasons and the enormous crowds - it all went well. I thank you very much for this excellent service.

    Dear Ms. Cheung, Thank you for your kind assistance in booking the train travel. ALL went very well, and all the pre-booked tickets were issued without any complications. The trains were fast, and efficient; (with exception of the 2nd class, from Dali to Lijiang). I'm sure the older trains will be upgraded in time. English was spoken at a minimum, but understanding was not hindered, as there is always someone will to help.

    Your personalized service staff answered all questions beforehand. I am sure you get many questions about all sorts of matters. I hope your future customers can rest assured all will be handled in a professional manner should they contact you.

    Your towns, and cities, (Dali, Lijian, Shughe), as well as surroundings, were beautiful; ...and not to be missed.
    I will return in the future.

    My personal gratitude, again,

    Respectfully,


    Henry & Siri Garcia, (Chiang Mai, Thailand).
