Isla and her team are amazing. I recommend them to everyone. Thanks again for such a professional service
Thank you once again Isaac. Everything went very well and as usual your care was appreciated.
Very friendly and efficient. Helped with a change of date and gave loads of additional information. Can’t thank them enough
Good customer service
Excellent service was specific to my travel manager.
DialAFlight have changed our return flights three times most helpfully and efficiently. They have been extremely responsible to the extent of contacting a family member for us. Absolutely exemplary.100%.
Brilliant service! Everyone I dealt with was helpful, friendly and pleasant. Amy was so amazing I’ve already recommended her. Thank you for making travelling in uncertain times so pleasant.
I like the service you gave us
Gary was very helpful and kept me up to date with my travel changes and Covid rules when returning to UK. Very pleased and impressed with general performance.
In difficult circumstances the professionalism of Alistair and his team was exemplary. I would advise anyone to book with yourselves as quite clearly booking direct would have been a nightmare. Great communication and politeness from all of you and thank you again for getting us home.
Super efficient, friendly service. Seamless despite last minute changes due to Covid tests and visa hold ups. Awesome, highly recommended
DialAFlight was there to support me when my airline wanted me to buy another ticket when they should reschedule my flight due to my toothache.
They are professional and always very helpful and they keep updating the travel if there are any changes. Looking forward to booking my holiday
Thank you so much to Max and team on looking after me during my travels and bringing me home safely with out a single hiccup. You are the best
I am so happy to be back and I appreciate all the effort by your staff, Sean in particular. I received all the information about the cancellation of flights on time and my flight back was excellent. Thank you ever so much and keep it up.
Ryan was excellent - always delivers and will look to rebook with him again
Dexter was very helpful especially the booking last minute and helping when the traveller had issues. He went above and beyond which was very appreciated at a stressful time
Oli was really very helpful as my flight kept getting cancelled. He did a very good job getting me back
The team were absolutely amazing and supportive during my extended stay in Cape Town due to the cancellations of BA and KLM flights because of the pandemic. I am so glad I had booked through DialAFlight as I don't believe I would have been able to manage the changes that came in. I can't thank you enough for getting me home safely and being so supportive and motivated even though it must have been a nightmare for you!
I have found everyone at DialAFlight very professional particularly Harvey, who always goes the extra mile to help me and ensures that I get a good deal.
I really appreciate that you kept me updated about changes or cancellations on flights. You did your best, however the situation was beyond your control. You also kept your promise about partial refund. A very big thank you to the DialAFlight team.
Christian and his team were outstanding from start to finish with not a detail left to chance. Even when Christian wasn’t available his colleagues were briefed and supported him fully. We felt looked after at all times. I would recommend them to anyone. Excellent experience
My trip was great and if I had any problems your team sorted it out with no hesitation, thank you again
The team at DialAFlight helped us with a tricky trip to South Africa with cancellations by various airlines.. We got stuck in South Africa and if it were not for the persistence and professional attitude by DialAFlight we would still be stuck there.
Lily our rep was excellent, went over and above in these unpredictable times.
Excellent support as ever
I was in South Africa and had to curtail my trip due to COVID and spoke to the 24 hour help desk. Particular thanks are due to Pauline who amended my travel plans promptly and to Leah my travel manager.
We'd come to sample sauvignon, sip shiraz, marvel at malbec, and savour world-class cuisine. But if you ask why we'd travelled to the southern hemisphere when we have all that on our European doorstep, you obviously haven't been to South Africa.
This pilgrimage to the wine-taster's paradise of Franschhoek began not with an aperitif - say a Graham Beck Game Reserve chenin blanc - but with an appetising few days in Cape Town. Our hotel, the Cape Grace, sits alongside the lively marina. From here, you can take a tourist bus ride around the city, a cable-car trip up Table Mountain, and shop at the Waterfront area.
At the Baia restaurant we feasted on seafood bisque, lobster and langoustine - and presented with a bill as cheap as chips.
For something more sedate, the colonial grandeur of Mount Nelson is the place for afternoon tea. However, if I could eat only one meal on the Cape it would be at The Pot Luck Club, the hottest restaurant in town.
From Cape Town, we headed for the open countryside, climbing through Helshoogte Pass with its amazing mountain views. Just 90 minutes later we were in a different country - think Tuscany comes to Cumbria, with some Dutch gable architecture thrown in.
After being hounded out of Europe, it was the Huguenots who brought their distillery skills to this verdant triangle of South Africa, transforming it into one of the World's most beautiful wine valleys. Relais & Chateaux has now captured a corner of Franschhoek and discreetly created the Provencal-style retreat of Le Quartier Francais.
The hotel has a tranquil hidden garden, lavender-lined walkway and Tasting Room restaurant, all set within the charm of a Victorian village square. There is a glorious list of wine estates to visit in this area, all with restaurants and tastings.
La Petite Ferme sits at the back of Franschhoek and has mountain views and a mouthwatering lunch menu. Delaire Graff is a gem of an estate, where you can view the oak-barrelled seasoning process, or visit its famous art collection, including Tretchikoff's Chinese Girl (it's said to be the most reproduced painting in the world), and a diamond showroom on which the Graff fortune is built.
We opted for the hop-on, hopoff Franschhoek tram tour of the vineyards, along with a boisterous party who got ever squiffier as we rumbled from one distinguished estate to the next.
There was Mont Rochelle's chardonnay, fermented in a butterscotch-flavoured barrel, La Couronne's plummy malbec which we partnered with a local cheese platter, and my favourite, Moreson's In My Bed cabernet sauvignon merlot.
Moreson's has a brilliant collection of wines, wittily named around the good-natured naughtiness of their Weimaraner dog. Rather tipsily, we left the tram party to the strains of Chicago's If You Leave Me Now. We needed all our concentration for the task ahead: a night in The Tasting Room at Le Quartier Francais.
Some restaurants are worth making a pilgrimage to - and this is one. Award-winning chef Margot Janse weaves her magic in the kitchen, combining earthy African and sophisticated French to create two audacious flavour combinations.
Janse once considered a career in the theatre - and each of the eight courses, accompanied by a different wine, was drama on a plate. There was texture, humour, sex appeal and surprises with every mouthful. The Eastern Cape marron crayfish, Cape gooseberry and lemon verbena was like leaping into the freezing Atlantic - so tinglingly exhilarating I nearly went to change into my swimwear to eat it.
We finished our trip on the coast at the glamorous Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa in Camps Bay.
The unabashed luxury of Twelve Apostles was like being treated to a glass of Klein Constantia Vin de Constance - a silky, rich dessert wine much loved by Napoleon. The perfect end to a trip as well.
