    It is very convenient to book train tickets through China train APP. I just search the train information and submit the online booking. After sending the payment, I receive the confirmation a few minutes later. I can check the order status through APP. Next I will still choose this APP to book train tickets. It is so easy.

    Your booking service is very outstanding and it is highly recommended to travelers all over the world, May your company get better and better in the future. Hope to meet your guys in my next trip to China.

    I do not know what to say, but I have to admit that they are professional and trustworthy. It was a long story for my travel from Huangshan to Shenzhen. For the tickets for the whole journey were sold out, they bought one ticket to the halfway and refunded me the price difference. And on the train, they called me and talked with the train conductor about my situation. Finally, the train staff charged me the ticket price for the rest journey to Shenzhen and gave me a new ticket. Everything went smoothly finally....More

    We highly recommend your service to all of our friends, you are so reliable and responsible for all passengers. We input one of our passport numbers incorrectly and you called me to confirm this. We appreciated this very much. The booking consultant was patient and professional and we got all paper tickets at railway station without any problems. We love TCG!

    Even though we know China has a large population, we are surprised by the crowded people at the station. The train staffs are very busy, they rarely speak English. Luckily we printed the guidance both in English and Chinese which you emailed us for reference. It was not difficult to collect tickets and find the entrance. Thanks a lot for your help.
