    I have spent 10 days in China, taken 7 trains across the country. We booked through Travel China Guide, we were telephoned on two occasions, to choose an option if our original time was unavailable, we were really surprised at this. We were given tracking numbers and picked up all our tickets at the station for our first journey, no problem was encountered. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Travel China Guide - especially if you are independent travelers.

    Thanks for pointing out that we had very limited time to change the train at Shenzhen North station to Hong Kong. Your advice to get the tickets in advance and go through the transit channel save us. Thanks a lot.

    Although, I have used TravelChinaGuide to book China train tickets for several times, it is 1st time that I used the E-ticket for my China train trip from Shenzhen to Guangzhou. I only need to verify my passport at the ticket window. It is kind of convenient. Hope E-ticket can apply for all the trips someday.

    China train ticket booking is extremely challenging for foreign independent travelers without a guide service, but things become easier if you use TravelChinaGuide. My friends and I used their service and we were satisfied with the servive provided. They even could issue us a Fapiao (which was inquired by our company). :)

    We have used Travel China Guide to book our train tickets during our trips in China. The staffs were really professional, they always answer us when we had any questions.
    Moreover, our hotel in Shenzhen lose our tickets and the staff from Travel China Guide called them and did everything they could to help us to find our tickets.
    We highly recommend TCG and we will definitely use them again. Thanks to Monica and her team.

    Last week, we took the high speed train from Shenzhen to Shanghai. The train duration is around 12 hours. It was a pleasant journey. The train was clean and the train conductor was polite to everyone. The passengers can buy snacks and meals on the train. We are looking forward to the next high speed train trip.

    This is a family trip to China. When we were in US, we booked the tickets online through We requested to sit together, as there are 2 children in our group. And yes,we got 8 seats near to each other. We asked them to deliver the paper tickets to our hotel in Shenzhen, as we heard that there is long queue to collect paper tickets at train station. When we arrived hotel, the tickets are waiting us. We are happy to choose travelchinaguide to organize our train booking.
