    Last month, I travelled in China and I have a pleasant experience to work with TravelChinaGuide. The lady I contacted is always so helpful. She booked all my tickets well and send them to my first hotel in Beijing. The trip went smoothly. I couldn’t be more satisfied with your service.

    I booked 6 tickets with TCG for my business trip. Their service was comprehensive and professional. When I came to China, all the paper tickets were waiting for me. Bullet trains were clean and punctual. I will use your service again in the furture.

    The Travel Tips about how to collect the paper tickets at the railway station and how to take the train is very useful for foreigners, esp. for new comers in China. Your train tickets booking service has always been fantastic!

    I bought one business class seat from Beijing to Suzhou. The business class is really amazing. You can enjoy free snacks and drinking. And we put our large luggage in the luggage closets. Your service made our trip very easy and comfortable. Thanks.

    I book the tickets from Beijing to Suzhou with TravelChinaGuide. There are several train stations listed. We are confused about the train stations. My train departure is from Beijing and arrival is Suzhou [Jiangsu]. I do not know which station exactly, then I emailed TravelChinaGuide and then they replied me quickly and list the address of both in English and Chinese. Their service is very good.

    I have received all the train tickets when I check-in the hotel. Thanks. It’s very easy to have all the tickets delivered to the hotel. Last time I collected the ticket at the train station, I waited for a long line and it took a long time. It is a little annoying.
