We had a great time, lots of lovely views, wildlife and hotels. The only issues we had were out of the control of DialAFlight, such as British Airways promising to deliver luggage to Cusco but leaving it at Lima.
Always impressed by the service. Will continue to use for all my trips to Ecuador.
Unfailingly good service over the many yearsI I have used you
Many thanks to Ethan and Spencer
All worked out beautifully - no problems at all.
Well done - great trip!
Everything worked out just fine!
One of our connecting flights was cancelled, you informed us very quickly and we were able to resolve it with the airline at Heathrow before starting our outbound journey. If we'd found out later it would probably have resulted in losing a couple of days of our holiday. The hotel you sorted out in Quito was excellent (apart from the broken lift!)
Brooke and her team were always available when required.
Zoe is excellent
Usual excellent service!
Booking through you, we did a lot better than those who booked direct with Noble Caledonia
Great communication by your staff - always keeping me up to date with any changes, regardless of who brought them about. I will definitely use your business again.
Alway very helpful and friendly service. Takes the hassle out of online booking and always find competitive prices Thanks to the whole of the DialAFlight team
Always very pleased with the service. Have recommended DialAFlight and Gavin to several friends already. Thanks for making things easy!
Many thanks for organising a wonderful holiday!
Excellent customer services from the moment I called enquiring for flights to the customer service agent making sure everything was ready for the trip. Well done guys.
Pre booking child's meal an excellent choice. Avianca underated.
Always good service - never been disappointed. This is my fifth or sixth time I've used DialAFlight. It's so nice to speak to someone who can answer all your questions and know you can ring at any time for support from a pleasant and efficient team member.
Always good to speak to a real person when booking flights. Avianca are a really good airline - nice food.
We forgot to check In online for the return journey. Assumed we couldn't, only to find all 6 seats apart from 2 dotted all over the plane for flight from Bogota to London.
Don't use Iberia for long flights. It was very poor.
Gavin always understands exactly what I want, and delivers. Quick, no fuss, good price and the reassurance of actually talking to a real person! Recommended flights were excellent (Avianca) though some people may find the food limited - good quality, but not a great quantity. As I have a small appetite, this wasn't a problem for me. Otherwise, perfect.
Fantastic experience throughout. Thank you so much!
I was looked after very well by Sophie again.
Very helpful and efficient. Many thanks.
Great service. Thanks. Will recommend.
You did more than expected. There were difficulties booking and I could not do what I had hoped which was just as well because what was arranged for me was even better. Thank you team. I always recommend you
Excellent follow-up after booking to make sure everything was in place for travelling.
Flights all good and on time. Luggage didn't make it to Manchester via Amsterdam, sent on late following day.
