    I receive in my hotel on time the train tickets I bought on your web site. It was perfect. When I visit China again, no doubt I will use your services again to buy more train tickets. I think that TravelChinaGuide Booking Center is a reliable enterprise, and your services are easy to use.

    The service was good. The only issue was that there was barely any English at the train station but that is not your companies fault.

    Train booking service is a very good service.
    I think that a better service to foreingn visitors would be make the address of the railway station (depart and arrive) both in Chinese and English, on the Ticket Pickup.
    Thank you, we enjoyed a great experience.
