We always appreciate Tristan’s expert knowledge about flights and aircraft.
Always the best service
Everything went really well
Liam was great as always. I needed to book an urgent flight home and he was great, supportive and patient. I highly recommend
So disappointed and embarrassed with the condition of the arrival hall and baggage collection area at Edinburgh airport. Toilets were a disgrace and I will be complaining. All our connections were on time and baggage did not get lost! Thanks DialAFlight
Great, informative service would definitely use again.
We had an issue with Bluu car rental charging us over a thousand pounds despite our pre paid voucher being given. Spoke to Jeff our travel consultant on our return and the issue was resolved in 24 hours, refund paid.
Excellent service and easy to use
Oli de Bernier is excellent and I look forward to him assisting me with my next holiday.
A great professional service. Thank you Monika!
Tony is amazing. Everything went well and when we needed help he was right there for us. Amazing. Inspiring!
Very helpful. Bay hotel not quite as good as hoped
I only use DialAFlight now as Shane Graham provides excellent service and is available at all times to support me.
You did well. You got us last minute tickets and we appreciated it.
Thank you Paul once again. All worked perfectly.
All superb - BLUU car hire was excellent. Many thanks for the advice and bookings Lloyd
A disappointment was that there was no business class lounge available to us at Zanzibar airport. KLM apparently doesn’t have a contract with the lounge and we would have had to pay to enter. No notification of this so 3 hrs waiting at the gate. Not acceptable on a business class ticket
BA flight late so missed connection and lost a day's holiday
Missed an outbound connection due to BA flight delay. Good job that we had booked with Teddy. Next flight sorted eventually even though we arrived at our final destination 11 hours late.
Everything went according to plan. I don't feel confident booking online and you chaps held my hand throughout. Definitely would recommend you.
Best travel agent. Thank you Scott.
Noah was very helpful
Roger was great.
Isaac is alway very helpful and professional. Thank you as always.
Reid and Vinnie fab as usual
Roger Smith was simply outstanding in meeting our requirements and very 'hands on' with seeing our travel arrangements through without a hitch. I would not hesitate to recommend DialAFlight to anyone and will most definitely be calling on their services for our personal family use in the future.
Great service again from Bradley.
I’ve had fantastic service every time. Good quotes/quick service/helpful staff. It’s such a pleasure booking flights through DialAFlight
Nicky was amazing, professional and very committed. Will be using her again
Three-course lunches served by a personal waiter in a blossom-filled almond grove, candlelit dinners under the stars in the Sahara and a refreshing glass of local wine on a roof terrace overlooking the city of Marrakech…
This is exactly the kind of Hollywood movie-style indulgence I enjoyed in Morocco.
I knew the North African country was a popular honey-moon destination but I hadn’t bargained for quite how magical and romantic it would be.
Dar Ahlam translates from Arabic to House of Dreams and there has never been a truer name.
The five-star, all-inclusive establishment prides itself on the theatrical, from the atmospheric entrance procession through dark corridors dimly lit by candles to the ever-changing surroundings.
What might be a room furnished with a plain wooden table one day could feature three covered with tablecloths the next, with golden plates and huge, elaborate candlesticks worthy of a cathedral warmly lighting the space.
Rather than offering a set restaurant with a menu, guests never dine in the same place twice and no meal is the same everything is a (very wonderful) surprise.
The first night, following a dip in the large delightful pool, my boyfriend and I were shown by a waiter to a small building that could have been the priest’s apothecary in Romeo and Juliet: it was filled with pots and wicker baskets of fresh herbs. The scent of rosemary, lemon balm and mint filled the candlelit room while ground spices were piled high in clay pots.
If only I’d been in costume it could have been a scene from a historical drama - this was definitely my kind of hotel.
We were served a delicious pumpkin soup with sourdough bread followed by roasted chicken and lentils all infused with the spices and herbs that surrounded us.
Next day we took bicycles into the surrounding oasis and spent the morning peddling round among the palms in the hot sun. We lunched in an almond grove. The trees were in full bloom and their delightful small pink and white flowers were glorious under the bright blue sky not to mention positively bridal when petals fell confetti-like in the breeze.
The ruins of a deserted town added to the already stunningly romantic backdrop. I felt like I was starring in a Taylor Swift music video.
Our very own dining table was set up in a clearing where we were served a divine three-course lunch (oh lord, my waistline). The hotel really did think of everything even providing straw hats.
But the highlight of our stay was the night we spent in Dar Ahlam’s luxury desert camp.
After a four-hour drive I found myself more in the middle of nowhere than I’ve ever been in my life. But this didn't stop the hotel providing an astounding level of service. Our tent featured a large double bed (with hot water bottles), a bathroom and living space.
We watched the sunset, lolling on cushions at the top of a sand dune, with gin and tonics - but the best was yet to come. After dark, waiters brought out lanterns, dotting them along the sand to lead the way to dinner over the adjacent dune… and the sight when I crested the top was spellbinding.
Flickering lanterns seemed to fill the valley, lighting up the ochre sand. In the middle of it all was a table set for a formal dinner for two next to a roaring firepit, endless stars above us. Romantic beyond belief!
The next day we made our way back across the Atlas Mountains to Marrakech. Here we stayed at La Sultana Marrakech, just moments from the royal palaces, museums and souks of the city.
Intricate wooden carvings, decorative archways, alcoves with plump silky cushions - just wandering around the hotel was a voyage of discovery. The terrace on the top of the building was perfect for a crisp glass of wine at the end of the day exploring the city, the call to prayer from the nearby mosque filling the evening air.
I admit, my time in Morocco infuriated all my friends back home who were following me on Instagram. I insisted I didn't want to gloat - but who am I kidding?
