    Thank you so much for your help. I choose to deliver the ticket to my hotel, but the hotel staff refused to accept it even I emailed them several times. The deliveryman send it to me so long after his shift. Please put in a good word for his coming and I will write up a very positive review which is something I never do.

    The booking was easy. The change of the Ticket from Nanjing to Suzhou came late, but the class change was quickly compensated. We collected all tickets in Chengdu. Quick and easy. All trains were on time, fast and clean. We enjoyed the excellent service. Thank you!

    Very good! This is our second time engaging them! It was so smooth from the tickets delivery and totally worth the nominal fee paid to avoid hassle. Most importantly they are very responsive which is crucial when we are on the road travelling with limited data. Will definitely use them again!
