    You service is very good. We really appreciate your help for plan changes. Due to the flight delay, we have to change our train to Suzhou urgently. We may miss the train without your help. Any way, we will recommend your service to all my friends!

    TCG is an amazing booking system. It’s very easy and convenient to book train tickets. I just need to submit online and finish the payment. My train tickets are delivered to my Chinese friend’s home safely. For every procedure, they email the details. TCG deserves a 5-star!

    We just took the train from Shanghai to Suzhou. We booked the tickets online with this website. The nstruction about how totake a train on the website is useful. Just one point, we do not need to collect paper ticket but present our passports at the enterance instead. There is no need to collect paper tickets. Next time, we still will choose TravelChinaGuide to book train tickets.
