    This is the third time I book a train ticket through this website, they never disappointed me! Their website is easy to navigate and give you all the information for your train ride through e-mail. I was able to board the train with my passport. It is very convenient. I would like to recommend.

    An energetic travel agency, travel china guide. A big and massive thank you. Owing to some personal reasons, I had to cancel the train ticket of Shanghai-Taizhou. Travel china guide received the online cancellation request, then they did the cancellation and made a refund to me. Their service is so efficient. Once I solved everything well, I will definitely book tickets with your company again. Thank you so much.

    The railway station is very crowded. I have heard about this, but it is still out of my imagination. And it is really hard to find an English speaker for help at the railway station. Your ticket delivery service has given me so much convenience. The big ticket envelop is waiting for me at my appointed hotel. By the way, I have seen the self-service ticket machine at the railway station, but it is only for Chinese ID holders. So, your train ticket booking service is worth more than what you have charged. Travel China Guide will always be my first choice for my China train ticket booking. ...More
