Excellent as always

Flew to Vancouver

Flight very good, food on return poor. Biggest problem was Avis care hire. Our car a Nissan Versa was underpowered for a trip across the Rockies, needed to be a 2 litre at least. But overall a holiday of a lifetime

The only disappointment was that the hotel booked for us in Vancouver was quite some distance from the city centre, other than that the trip was excellent...

I've already recommended you to a number of people who have mentioned that they used Trailfinders. One observed that they didn't know that you do anything but flights as it doesn't say that in your ads.

Everything went like clockwork and made our travelling stress free, a great service, A1.

Flew to Vancouver

I would advise anyone when booking to make sure the hotel is quite near the city as the Westin Prince Hotel in Toronto was far too far away from the town.

Flew to Vancouver

Everything you organised worked perfectly. It may be useful to tell people if they are travelling AC Rouge that the service isn't as good (no free booze and no on screen info about the flight) return flight with AC much better.

All worked very smoothly (apart from a puncture en route to Heathrow, for which we cannot blame DialAFlight!) It is reassuring to have such personal care all along the way. Glad we booked with Lucas

Flew to Vancouver

As usual - all your arrangements went very smoothly. I always recommend you. It's so easy just to tell you what I would like my travel plans to be and you somehow magic them together with so little fuss and bother. It would take me many hours to do this independently.

We highly recommend Karl as he is excellent in programming places we want to visit in the most cost effective way. His advice is of great value and this last trip is an example. Everything was perfect.

Loved Sea Breeze Barbados -small hotel pools but lovely beach. Food excellent. Think they are doing an upgrade though which might push up the price. Hilton very convenient for lifts in Whistler with a nice warm pool. Transfers Whistler Connections very organised.
