    No problem. It is actually good to know that you have taken good care of your customers.
    Your previous explanation has allowed me to understand better about your ticket-releasing system for next bookings as we will travel to your nice country more regularly.

    I genuinely feel that your company provides a wonderful service and I have great trust in your business. You make my travel to China much easier and I feel relived knowing that I don’t have to buy my tickets at the station by myself after landing and trying to figure out which is the next available train.
    Thank you Christina, you’ve been a great help!!

    Train stations are well signed for foreigners. It’s not hard to find the proper entrance and exit. We emailed staff of TravelChinaGuide in advance about the counter information for ticket collection so everything went well without any confusion. We got the paper tickets and take the train in time. Really appreciated!

    This is my second time to use your service. I am really appreaciate your help. I called you and asked about some questions. One of your colleague answered the details carefully. I forget her name, maybe it is Joie I think. Hahaha..... Then I ordered the train tickets online and paid. I got my confirmation details around 15 minutes after I paid. Really fast.

    We want to pick up all our tickets at HK, then the Travel china guide suggest us to collect other tickets at the mainland stations for the HK station require the pickup fee.

    We are really appreciated all what you have done for us. We had a great trip. As you suggested, we collected all the paper tickets from the first departure station, and we only showed the paper in English & Chinese and our original passports to the station staff to get all our tickets. It is awesome.

    It’s a good experience to book tickets with travelchinaguide. The consultant answers my questions carefully and accurately. When my train is sold out, she gives another solution quickly. It is more convenient to have all the tickets beforehand. It takes some time to collect the ticket at the crowded train station. I will have my tickets delivered next time.

    Travel China staff were very professional and helpful. I would recommend them to everyone, especially to people who are visiting China for the first time and have no experience with trains & ticketing. Keep up good work!

    I am very pleased with using your company in my travels planning process, and will use you again. Your staff is very kind and quick in responding and finding alternative solutions if tickets are sold out. Please give your staff the best regards from me.
