    I want to compliment the extremely competent agents at China Travel Guide. I just returned from a 3 weeks long holiday that was made all the more pleasurable by your assistance in making our train and flight reservations ahead of time. My questions were answered immediately and the suggestions you made for each leg of our travel proved to be correct. We were relieved when our train tickets were waiting for us as promised at our hotel in Shanghai at the beginning of our adventure. We had no problems taking each flight when we presented our passports to the ticket agent. I will recommend your services to my friends and family as an easy and reliable way to make bookings for a successful adventure through China! ...More

    Everything went well with the tickets booked via your agency. The booking procedure was quite efficient. The only suggestion for improvement is to offer the facility of paying by wire transfer.

    I was very happy with my experience using TravelChinaGuide. On both journeys I had no problems at all, even though this was my first time in China and I was not familiar with anything. Your instructions made the process quite simple. I was especially grateful for the page you provided with instructions written in Mandarin to give to the agent in the train station, when printing tickets. Your price was very reasonable too. If I return to China, I will certainly use your services again.

    This was the first time I had used this service and was initially frustrated at not being able to book direct and secondly not being assured of the specific class I had booked. I understand after using the trains the reason why. I did appreciate the immediate responses to my questions and keeping me informed at all times. I will certainly be using your service in future bookings.

    Very good service trains/platforms/stations very clean - only problem was the cancellation of a service returning to Shanghai from Huangshan- it was difficult at Huangshan North station to find someone that spoke English to inform us of the cancellation - we were booked onto the next train with no problems.

    I can thoroughly recommend the service - as mentioned above, you were informative, the tickets were delivered to the hotel on time and the refund when we weren't able to get first class tickets was there waiting when I returned to Australia.

    I enjoyed my trip to Huangshan -- my daughter and I have many wonderful memories. We are thankful for the help from travelchinaguide. We traveled to Huangshan on Monday evening. I enjoyed the scenery and culture of Xidi and Huangshan. I also found the train to be very pleasant with good seat and friendly staff. We were welcomed in Xidi and we actually had the opportunity to stay two nights in the ancient village of Xidi. We had a wonderful time meeting the people of Xidi and learning of Chinese history, art and culture. It was truly some of the best days of my life....More

    We were very happy with the way you handled the booking, delivery of the tickets etc.
    Posted on Jun. 04, 2019
    The booking process was simple. We opted to have the tickets delivered to our hotel and it arrived as planned.

    China's bullet trains are fast and way more comfortable than I had expected. The train stations are large but can get crowded at times so it is advisable to arrive a little early to get through security and find the correct platform.

    There are various shops and restaurants at the station as well. Depending on the station, some shops/restaurants were great, some were just ok. Regardless, if you are early and get hungry, there are places to shop and eat.

    I would definitely travel through China by train again. It was a wonderful experience.
