    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

    My friend and I traveled to Beijing and Guangzhou in early March, we don't speak the language so we find an agent to help with our train tickets booking. Ms. Tiffany replied my enquiry quickly, she got all our tickets as requested and emailed me all the information I needed. Everything went smoothly. We loved this service.

    I came across this website on Tripadvisor. It was an informative and user-friendly website. You just need to pay a small and reasonable booking service fee, then they would do everything and saved you all hassle. I highly recommend this complete and fantastic service.
