    Wonderful experience with booking, short delay in delivery of tickets. After train station i could understand why the actual ticket was needed. You should say that the ticket is a pass that allows you to go through the turn stile. Then the passenger could understand the need to hold on to ticket. Security excellent and impressive. Train excellent and speed amazing. Recommend travel by train.

    My wife and I have now had ten train journeys during our six week stay in China. We booked the trains through TravelChinaGuide and have been very pleased with the quality of their service. They have kept us informed via emails of their progress in purchasing and delivering all of our train tickets.

    The train tickets are delivered to our hotel address by Express Mail and we usually get batches of three sets of tickets at a time - depending on the travel dates of the trips.

    We would recommend this travel agency to anyone contemplating travelling by train in China. Their service had made our train trips pleasant and hassle
    free.

    If travelling over night our advice is to pay the extra for a soft sleeper berth. The compartments have four bunks and are quite comfortable and quiet. We have had two hard sleeper trips and while acceptable the soft sleeper is better.

    We have also had several ultra fast trains and these are excellent. Again pay the extra for first class seat and enjoy the comfort.

    Finding our way around the train stations hasn't been too difficult. Often a station attendant will guide you where to wait and also when to board the train. The train information is displayed in Chinese and English and often the announcements include English.

    Travelers should read the TravelChinaGuide information about the various types of trains and seats that is available on their website. One tip that we do is to put each set of tickets into a small plastic bag and to print in large letters the train details, departure time, carriage and bunk numbers on to a piece of paper and insert this into the plastic bag. This makes it easier to check the train information in the station than reading the small print of the tickets.

    To finish TravelChinaGuide provide the sort of service that independent travelers like ourselves find very helpful - we are 66 and 68 years old and have enjoyed all of our train trips.

    Hi, of course my experience was very positive. There is a huge time difference between Ireland and China, but still TCG were very fast to reply to my questions and give me all the relevant details for my desired journey. My ticket was waiting for me in a sturdy envelope as soon as I checked into my hotel. You took care of everything with the utmost diligence and I cannot find any complaint in how you treated me or took care of my booking.

    I would like to remind people to show up early for the train boarding as there are many people who wish to use it. My mandarin is not so good, but the staff at the station is very kind and will take care of you. They will always smile and be very helpful in showing you to your seat and making sure you are boarding the right one. They have hot water onboard and it is a good idea to bring your own snacks also!!!...More

    The train journey is superb. The station is large with many seats there, passengers queue to enter is orderly, the platform is
    wide and easy to access the train cabin. There are customer service personnel along the platform and inside the cabin to guide you. The train speed reached a maximum of 201 K/Hour and is very smooth.. I enjoy the ride.
    Thanks for Sunny's excellent service, I will definite recommend to my friends to use your service....More

    The service was perfect. The tickets were at our hotel when we arrived – although, because the receptionist’s English was so poor, it was some time before we realized that the package handed to us included the tickets. The train journey was exciting and the train departed and arrived on time.
    The only additional advice you could give (which we already knew about) is that despite the wide overhead luggage rack large pieces of luggage need to be stored at the end of each carriage and if one is travelling with a very large suitcase it is advisable to get to the station early. We were allowed on the train half an hour before departure which we understood to be normal.
    This was our first experience of a bullet train and we loved it.
