I have been booking with DialAFlight for many years. Ian is the best
Amy was so helpful. I was in a state booking a ticket in a family emergency. She made sure I got the best deal and helped by changing my ticket so that I could get to my family as quickly as possible.
Family crisis. Very effective in an emergency. Thanks to your team for advice.
Thank you for ALL your help in booking my flight to Johannesburg. I'll be in touch for my next trip.
Service and personal manner of Oli and other sales staff was really touching and just brilliant.
Competitive flights package with usual top quality service
Everything went really well.Thank you.
Everything was great. Just not very impressed with British Airways. Prefer to fly with Virgin.
Wonderful trip to Johannesburg, Namibia, Franschhoek and Cape Town. Thanks to Kelly
A very professional company with seemingly well versed and educated staff. Really consultative without the usual drama
Very good service, thank you.
Mant thanks for your help.
Great service. Our agent whom we booked through remained available to answer questions, assist and adjust booking requirements throughout the whole process.
A first class service as always going above and beyond!
Thank you to DialAFlight, especially my consultant Leo, for being for so kind, patient and explaining everything. The follow up calls towards the departure date were also very reassuring
Turkish Airlines are OK but transferring through their new Istanbul airport is a real pain. It is vast and takes a very long walk and time to transfer.
Excellent flights, efficient booking - feel very confident booking with DialAFlight.
Spencer and Matthew really helpful. I couldn't print boarding cards so they did these for me and scanned them to me. Your staff are brilliant - really helpful and nothing too much trouble.
Always get good service from DialAFlight
Thank you so much for organising our trip, it was fantastic!
Billy was first class
As always with DialAFlight, everything went according to plan. Virgin premium economy very worthwhile. Thanks to Ian and your team for a great trip!
Very helpful once again. All went smoothly
The food on the return flight was abysmal considering being in premium economy.
Get BA to rethink their meal times on the return from Durban. They served breakfast about 08.00 but no lunch until 17.30. Awful long time between meals on a daytime flight
Lily has been great in organising our last few trips. We will be back in touch with her again for our next adventure for sure.
Scott was amazing. Have already recommended him to a friend for flights to SA and Zimbabwe
Everything always goes smooothly.
Once again Helen provided exceptional help and advice. Arrangements worked perfectly.
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.
