    Online booking process is straightforward and easy to use. However, I wished there is a service in the website for us who changed our mind about collecting train ticket ourselves and still be able to request to send the ticket to our hotel in china after we booked the ticket.

    I booked a private transfer from Hangzhou airport to my hotel, did not realize the hotel is just 2km from Airport. TravelChinaGuide suggest me ask my hotel to arrange a free pickup, which I did. It saved me much money, the people in Travelchinaguide are so considerate and warm-hearted. Very impressed.

    I could pick it up in Hangzhou! I will definitely look to your company again when in China! Thanks!

    The train journey in China is smooth and delightful. I am so thankful I found understanding and caring staff from your company who could speak good English and helped me a lot. We will be sure to use your booking service if I have the chance to visit China once again.

    Owing to the weather, we would like to cancel my train to shanghai and we emailed you. What a pity for both of us. Luckily, you told us you can cancel it for us with some cancellation fee though. We can totally understand that. We're sorry for the extra work. We hope to wait for a few days and get our refund. In a word, your service is nice.

    The train booking service is consistently excellent. It is very easy to use. I cannot fault the system. It is better than England’s train booking system. I have been to China many times and always enjoy using the train service.

    I booked a trip from Shanghai to Hangzhou and the ticket was issued. However, when I clicked on the link for the ticket collecting instructions, I got a web error "Page was reset". I have tried several times and have tried different browsers. The error always appears.
    I knew the pickup number so I was sure I can collect the ticket, but I thought there was definitely something wrong with your website.

    In fact, when I tried the link using a different computer it worked for me, so it must be a problem with my machine or my networking. I think you may need to recheck about this problem. Anyway, we enjoyed our trip in China. ...More

    Fantastic, thanks a lot. Thank you for answering the phone at the midnight. After we checked in the hotel, the staff couldn’t find our tickets that we requested you to deliver to the hotel. Because our departure time was the next morning, we were anxious and called you so late. Thanks God. You picked up the mobile in time and helped us about it. I was shocked by your service so far.
