    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.

    Our booking experience through TCG booking center is excellent

    I have no suggestions on our service& booking procedure. The service is very good.

    I appreciate highly the TCG Booking service. I liked the possibility to have paper tickets delivered to my hotel so I do not need to line up myself.
    Posted on Jul. 26, 2019
    Having used TCG for trains for many years, my latest booking (June/July) was hassle free as normal from TCG. Everything went very well at station as I am already very familiar with railway system in China. However, I would suggest first time user to have extra time prepared as it is always hard to find English service at station. You may also consider to give some help about it. From my experience, it is always a pleasure to work with you! See you next time.
    Posted on Jul. 15, 2019
    Your service was definitely fantastic, tickets were already there at check in at the hotel. We will certainly use your services in the future again. For foreign tourists it is definitely much easier to have the tickets in advance, at train stations it can be very crowded and staff rarely speak English.
    Posted on Jul. 07, 2019
    I am very satisfied with the booking process, and the web interface. When I wanted to change one of the booking, the service was quick and effective. The train journeys went smoothly and as expected.
    Posted on Jun. 30, 2019
    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

    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.
