    Absolutely, with pleasure. The booking service and guideance was quick, to the point and professional – and I have quite a good comparison, since I had contacted three or four other agencies before I decided to choose Travel China Guide. I liked that Your agent combined several of my ticket requests into one, thanks to which I paid only for one delivery. When I noticed the tickets were not in my hotel, I called the agent and they pushed the delivery to as fast as possible, which was also appreciated. Also the level of English of the agent was very good, which can be a major obstacle with travel agencies, many hotels, airports and train stations.
    Overall, I would recommend the service, especially for international travellers. To be honest, it is very difficult to book tickets by yourself, especially if you do not know any Chinese, so such help is much appreciated. The fee is worth the spending, especially when you value time and you don`t want to spend three hours in line to purchase tickets. All the trains were on time, we had very good seats and we had no problem to travel, whatsoever. We were impressed by how modern and well developed were all the train stations (Shanghai, Pingyao and Xian). Thank you once again, and have a good day.

    We were very pleased with the service we received from your company. We were traveling on China Rail at a very busy time (especially May 1and May 4) so we were so glad we pre-booked our tickets! There were so many people queued to buy tickets at the main stations in Shanghai, Beijing and Xi-an. Having the tickets delivered to our hotel allowed us to move more quickly through.

    The service I received from TravelChinaGuide was excellent. As a European businessman travelling through China, I have used your services several times over the past few years, and you have never let me down. Your attention to detail is fantastic, such as sending a Chinese message to show the ticket counter in order to collect your ticket. Also you keep me informed all the time. The Chinese rail service is very easy to use, and in First Class is very comfortable. Thank you TravelChina Guide, I will certainly use your facilities next time I come to China....More

    The service provided from your side was very good and clear.
    Not really anything to add besides positive compliments for the service offered.
    We will surely use your company again.

    My wife and I couldn't have been more satisfied with our travels through China, the booking process for the train tickets was simple and straight forward! We did pay extra for the tickets to be delivered to our first hotel and that was by far the best decision we could have made. all of our tickets were given to us upon our arrival without needing to ask for them even! The time and hassle we avoided by receiving the tickets early more than made up for the nominal charge. We simply walked into the train station and through security, easy as that, no need to try to talk to an attendant to get our ticket for each ride, wasting precious time and possibly missing the train. We did splurge a little on VIP and 1st class tickets seeing as it was our honeymoon, and that was a great choice, we had all the leg room in the world. Overall we had a fantastic time, we would with out a doubt suggest your services to anyone looking to travel through China!...More

    It was a nice trip to China. I have booked two train tickets for arrive in different destinations - Shanghai to Yiwu and Yiwu to Guangzhou.
    I am happy with service you provided, it was easy to get tickets at train station. All were good and smooth, but people seem not to waiting in line as they try to move toward as much as they can. However, the train facilities were not good, especially for the first train - Shanghai to Yiwu, it was not good as messy with people (as it allowed for stand ticket) and the toilet was not clean and bad smell. While, for train from Yiwu to Guanzhou it was acceptable. The train is clean and not messy....More

    We had a wonderful time traveling by high-speed trains in China this year. We visited five cities plus Huangshan: Shanghai, Yangzhou, Nanjing, Tunxi, Huangshan, Hangzhou, and then back to Yangzhou and Shanghai.
    Several months before our trip, we reviewed the train schedule on the TravelChinaGuide's website and selected the trains and time that suited us. We paid with a US credit card and sent photocopies of our passports. This was the first time that we had ordered train tickets in this manner. We were interested to see how well this process would work. Well, our worries were totally unfounded. All six segments of our trip were by high-speed trains and all the tickets were waiting for us at our first hotel when we arrived in China.
    These high-speed trains were convenient, punctual and comfortable. The stations that service these high-speed trains were all newly-built, clean, safe, and well organized. (My one complaint would be the squatting toilets. Some stations have the sitting toilets for the handicapped. But all the toilets were clean.)
    China had built a vast network of high-speed rails during this past
    decade. It completely changed how I view distance in China. What used to be a 4-5 hours train ride is now 2 hours. For example, getting from Nanjing to Huangshan would have taken us an entire day by train. But, now with high-speed rail this entire trip took 4 hours only. Taking a plane would require us to get to the airport 2 hours before the flight. Sometimes weather would delay the planes. But trains are punctual like clockwork. Plus, you will see the countryside at ground level.
    I am looking forward to the days when China will offer a "China-Rail-Pass" similar to the EuroPass. High-speed train is the way to go!

    Hi there, I booked my bullet train from Shanghai-Beijing and my overnight sleeper train from Beijing-Xi'an through Travel China Guide and to say I was impressed with their service is an understatement. I was a solo traveller so things could go wrong very easily but they didn't thanks to you guys. I was a little nervous about the overnight sleeper train but I would recommend it to all my friends and family because I had such a blast. This company was extremely prompt with replying to my emails and very helpful. You won't have any regrets using their services....More
