    I really appreaciate your help. Everything went well. The only unpleasant experience is that the taxi driver charged me more than expected. A little disappointed.

    If you're thinking about trains, really do book ASAP. The trains sell out weeks in advance. And book with TravelChinaGuide, you will get rid of worry.

It is reassuring that Travel China Guide's service quality did not drop over the years.

    Travelchinagude made everything in china so much easier. When I was struggling with the ticket collection in the train station, I called the emergency mobile number and my booking consultant Josey was quite helpful and spoke on my behalf. Finally I got my ticket with her help. I will use this service next time.

    I feel so happy to choose TravelChinaguide to book train tickets, they always replied me quickly. In the b beginning, there is no first class seat, then I have to choose 2nd class seat. A few days later, the 1st seat class tickets become available. I emailed them to change my book to 1st class seat, they replied me quickly. After paying the price difference, they changed my tickets quickly and sent me the new confirmation. It is really convenient to book the tickets with them.
