    We arranged our traintickets in China via the service of Travel China guide. Perfect! The mails we got from Josey were very clear. Good explanation how to Travel by train in China. We had Some questions And Josey answered immediately. We highly recommand the service of Josey of Travel China guide.

    Because our good experience with this agency we also booked the Xian tour. Another perfect day with Carol, a very Nice And good guide. Very good english.

    We hebben zelfstandig door China gereisd en na wat zoekwerk op internet gekozen om de treinkaartjes te boeken via dit bureau. Na boeken op de site meteen reactie. Voor trein die niet boekbaar was kregen we een alternatief aangeboden. Hele duidelijke instructie over hoe de kaartjes af te halen en hoe het treinen in zn werk gaat in China. Echt heel tevreden over de medewerker Josey en de service. Absolute aanrader.
    Omdat We dus goeie ervaringen hadden ook excursie naar terra cotta leger via deze organisatie geboekt. Ook heel goed. Keurig op tijd. Nette auto ( hebben we anders meegemaakt ), gratis water en een fijne gids die erg goed Engels sprak. ( Carol)

    I booked the Xi’an day trip to Terracotta Army. Early in the morning, the guide and the driver picked up us at the entrance of the hotel. The tour guide Lily was very patient in explaining the scenic spots all along the way. All the matters were explained very clearly. We had a very pleasant experience and learned a lot about the history of ancient China, which was very meaningful. At that time, it was the peak of summer vacation, and there were many people in the scenic area. I hope to have another chance to visit in the off-season next time. And TravelChinaGuide would still be my choice for trip. ... More
