    Un servicio muy recomendable

    I was very impressed with your excellent level of service provided on my trip from Shanghai to Hangzhou. The ability to upload my passport to your website to allow you to purchase the train tickets for me and ship them directly to my hotel saved me a lot of time as I did not have to wait in line at the train station. The detailed instructions that you provided with instructions on how to take the train (along with a picture of the issued tickets) were also a great help.
    The instructions in Chinese that you provided to the train station when I lost a ticket and needed to replace it was also invaluable. Finally, I'm impressed that we were able to handle everything through email. It did not require me to use the phone at all. Thanks again for your help. The one comment that I have is that if you have a red ticket, you cannot go through the automatic entry. You have to stand to the right and show the attendant the red ticket and he will let you in. I was not sure if that was in the instructions that you provided. I may have mis-read that....More

    Really great service. I was a bit nervous about booking from the UK and collecting the tickets but everything went perfectly.
    The train was clean, the service was great and the trains were on time.

    The process is fairly straightforward so it's overall really good. But there were a couple of minor things that could be better.

    - I wasn't sure about such as whether I could use the VIP lounge or not (I booked the VIP ticket).
    - It also seems like in my case (Shanghai to Hangzhou), boarding started at 15 minutes instead of 30.
    - Lastly, I think maybe better pictures of the ticket window would help? It wasn't really hard to find since people can use translation apps to ask around though, but I could imagine it being a frustrating experience,...More

    Hey, thanks for your service. The tickets were at the hotel in plenty of time. No nervous waiting. And the train ride and stations were great. I first rode trains in China in 1987, so I can appreciate your service all the more.
