    I found the whole experience very easy and efficient. At the stations it was a little difficult as non-Chinese speaker (Nanjing was more difficult than Shanghai), but with a little thought it wasn’t too difficult. The trains were superb, clean and fast. The announcements were all in English and Chinese so I had no difficulties. I would recommend using them to any travellers.

    Everything was very well just as allways. I am very glad with your service.
    I picked the tickets up at the railway station and had a little trouble but that was totally my own fault because I did not read your instructions carefully. Therefore I gave them the wrong number. Made a call to your number and all worked out great. Again thank you for your great work !!!
    I also like to complement you on the great China Railway service. Excellent trains and very pleasant.

    Really pleased with help and ease of booking processes and tickets waiting for me at hotel on my arrival. Would recommend to other travellers .
    Train Shanghai to Xian used deluxe 2 birth cabin with bathroom. Very good , clean easy journey. Very easy to work out where to go in station , Shanghai waiting area is however very very busy and chaotic. As was arrival in Xian.
    Bullet train Xian to Beijing business quick, clean. Xian station for bullet train much more organised. Beijing station again chaotic. Didn't know if we needed South or North exit but don't think it made much difference. Watch the people trying to get you to use their taxis. We joined official taxi line which moved reasonably quickly but had lots of people trying to get us to use unofficial. Take tip all the Chinese wait in line and don't use unofficial- there is a reason!
    If you can manage with your case use the metro. Beijing metro is great cheap quick and easy once someone has explained how to buy tickets.
    Thank you for such a reliable and easy booking process.

    We are really overwhelmed with the service of TravelChinaGuide. Our trip in China by train went smoothly and your hints and advice about check-in and boarding procedures were very helpful indeed. Thank you very much and we can recommend your services to any other travelers.

    Everything works as planned. Tickets were available at the hotel upon arrival and no problem whatsoever during my travel journey. Keep up the good job!

    Thank you so much for booking our trip. It made our train travel much easier since we did not speak the local language. I would, however, like to give a few tips, so other passengers can know. The first is, when looking to get your tickets, I think it would be wise to advice the customers that they have to pick up the tickets from a seperate counter. Also, we did not know that the train trip made multiple stops, sometimes for 20 minutes at a time, making the trip quite long. The last thing I would advise is that for the 16-17 hour train trip, NO food is included in the cost. Make sure to either bring your own snacks, or be prepared to buy food on the train, which we both found to be extremely mediocre. Finally, I'd certainly suggest that everyone get a soft sleeper if possible, since the trips are quite long, and not having the ability to lay down comfortably would be quite hard. All in all, we did enjoy our trip, and how easy TravelChinaGuide Tours made it to book, these are just suggestions I would advise you guys to let your customers know...More

    We have a great time touring China. All of our itineraries that we have planned was accomplished thanks in part of your help specially for the train journey. It was our first time to try the sleeper train. It was a different experience and it was super.
    We experience no problem from the moment we pick up our tickets from the railway stations, to check in until we reached our destinations.. Thanks in part for the detailed steps that is very helpful to us.
    We specially commend Ms Phoebe Ma for a job well done in helping us throughout the process. A job well done. We look forward to another great journey with you guys....More
