    I traveled with my families to Harbin in December, 2019. It is an amazing city and we were so excited to see snow and ice. We appreciated your help with train tickets booking. We collected the paper tickets and take train smoothly. Our trip was very nice. Thanks for all your help!

    I planned to cross into Vietnam via Shenzhen-Guangzhou-Nanning-Hanoi route. And I booked tickets from TravelChinaGuide website early in advance, however, Covid-19 made my whole travel plan a mess. This is really sad, but one good thing is that I got full refund from TravelChinaGuide. I will just wait for another chance next year.

    I lost delivered paper tickets for two journeys and then I contact my operator Ms. Candy. She told me not to worry and I could made a lost report at the train station without any loss, this positive reply really comforted me a lot. Then I received an email from Candy with an attachment about how to deal with this situation. Although the procedures were complicate, I followed the instructions on where to go, whom to find and how to get my refund at the arrival station, including translations for everything I could have needed. I cannot recommend them enough....More

    In fact the train tickets had arrived. The Front Desk hadn't understood my English. We were sorry and we had to call you at night. Thanks to you, we have solved the problem and fetched our ticket envelope with your patient help. Above all, Thanks for your prompt reply and assistance.

    We booked two neighbouring seats from just two days before my trip. The train trip was fantastic and the ticket collection in the train station was also convenient. We had problem on how many luggages we could take onto the train, and the call center answers me properly and friendly. It was a great experience.

    I ordered my tickets and paid around 3 months ahead, but you emailed me to inform me that you failed to get the original train tickets and offered some other trains. I do not understand why they are not available. We have booked and paid. Since there is no other ways, we had to accept the so called back up trains you recommended. But it made me uncomfortable. You should make sure you can get the tickets on your website.

    The train tickets were waiting for us at our hotel so thank you very much for making the process so easy! Apologies for not emailing you back, but we have had limited internet access.
