Suggestion to go upstairs on plane was genius! It was quieter and on way home lucky enough to have two seats to myself. Talk to you for my next trip.

We were really impressed with the service that Gary Patel gave us. The hotels that Gary had recommended were brilliant for what we wanted. He was incredibly helpful whenever we asked for his advice. All the flights and transfers went without a hitch. We had a fabulous holiday and would definitely use DialAFlight again.
