    We booked four trips with TravelChinaGuide. One of the trips, we ordered first class seat tickets, but there is no first class seat, we have to change to second class seat. They refunded us the price difference quickly. After taking the train, the second class seat is not as bad as I have expected. In the whole booking procedure, they service is very good.

    I usually book my tickets through this website, and the booking process and the payment methods are clear and easy to handle. I only spend a few minutes every time for booking and all will be properly handled. Very Good.

    Buying train tickets as a foreigner was quite difficulty if you went to train station on your own, as the tickets were always sold out and there were really long queues there. And it was hard to find a clerk who could speak English. So I decided to book my tickets with this online company after some research. My choice was correct and TCG did a fabulous work. I will recommend.

    I took the Bullet Train Business Class in November, 2019, for my transportation between Cities in China. The ride was smooth, timely and efficient. There are only 5 seats in business class so make sure to book your reservation early.
