    Christina Zhao made our train arrangements for us. She was quick, concise and very helpful. She got us from A to B without any issues. We had a delight trip. Thanks so much!!

    I am very happy that TravelChinaGuide allows passenger to make one complimentary change to their booking in the event of a mistake, like in my case I got the date mixed up for our return trip from Shenzhen to Beijing.

    We are very happy with train journey except for our seats being occupied by another passenger. She apologized to us that she need to stay near the door. Although we changed our seats back at halfway after she get off, we are not very happy about it. We sat in first class and the staff in charge should not have allowed this to happen. Otherwise we are happy with everything....More

    I would like to say how pleased I was with the service you offered.
    Your service allowed us to book a key leg of our independent travel plans from the UK. This was especially valuable for people who cannot read and speak Chinese, especially there was a high demand for tickets. We requested the tickets to be delivered to specified hotel which they were and we were kept up to date on the stages by email.

    All in all we were very very happy with the service.

    Many thanks

    Overall I was very happy with the service I received with TCG for booking trains in China. I certainly would not have been able to do it on my own. They even caught a major mistake on my part. I choosed the tickets in July and in fact will travel in June! When TCG confirmed delivery with my hotels before purchasing, they discovered the mistake and contacted me immediately to confirm and give me the opportunity to request the proper dates.

    I was very happy that my mistake was caught, and fixed before it was too late. I also had a few additional questions as my trip came closer which were answered quickly and pleasantly. I would happily recommend this service to anyone....More

    The online experience was very good. The issuance of tickets was more complicated than expected.

    It would be very helpful to be able to have my tickets issued without having to stand in line at a train station ticket window. I travel frequently for business and am used to having my flight boarding passes issued online or at a self-service kiosk at the airport. It would save much time and frustration if train tickets could be issued the same way. I saw that the train stations we were in had self-service kiosks but we couldn't use them because there was no way to scan our passports. At the very least, there needs to be a separate window for foreign travelers with English language translations to help non-Chinese speaking travelers get their tickets issued.
    My family and I traveled on a high-speed train from Shenzhen Futian to Xiamen. It was excellent. Departure was on time, the seats were very comfortable with plenty of overhead space for luggage. The bathrooms were clean and accommodating. Service was very good. It was great to see the countryside from ground-level view.
