Arthur took all the stress and strain from the flight selection and booking process. The whole trip went just as planned with disabled assistance and chauffeur car all arranged
As always Chris provided patience and excellent service!
Raphael was very professional and thorough throughout and even arranged wheelchair assistance for my father after I had made the booking
Luke made the difference to my holiday guiding me through an ever changing minefield of rules and regulations entering and transiting through four different countries. Changing my return flight when I extended my visa. It's great to know when you are travelling in faraway places you can get advice info and help.
Keep doing what you’re doing
Brilliant service from start to finish - Aiden looked after us very well
Having faced some challenging decisions re travel during Covid we finally managed to get away to an amazing holiday thanks to Brody's continued support. He also put together a great deal! Great experience.
During difficult times for travellers everything was made easy by Darryll and his staff.
Excellent service from Craig
Our recent trip to Dubai was truly amazing. Dylan, you are brilliant at what you do. Never stop! Dylan just happened to answer the phone to us way back in 2015 and it is to him we go to whenever we want to travel. Thank you once again for your excellent customer service.
As always, great service, no problems
Excellent service as always
Cheers Brody, see you in November
You provided an excellent service and I have already recommended you to a lot of my friends,
Luke and Monica have been amazing throughout. Particularly with my recent booking for my parents. It’s safe to say they thoroughly enjoyed the trip and both Luke and Monica went the extra mile. I’ve used DialAFlight for the past 5-6 years and have never been less than amazed at the service. .
My experience with DialAFlight in such challenging times was excellent. Graham has the patience of a saint
Damian, always great to deal with
All as expected. Good communication.
Austin and his team always pull out the stops. First class
Excellent service kept me well updated - Samuel was brilliant
I know I can always depend on the fantastic Olivia. The airports were a nightmare but that is not her fault. On Tuesday my driver had to wait 3 hours for me to get out from the time we landed! And Ben Gurion in Israel was chaos.
Fabulous service from start to finish.
Looking forward to our next trip booked with you.
Thank you DialAFlight, and also Harrison, everything went very smoothly and we had a great holiday. Very good service
Everything was straightforward, no troubles.
Bruce did an amazing job as always
Excellent customer service as always. Everything I requested was arranged ahead of our arrival
Efficient, caring, thoughtful and friendly service as always
Great to know someone is going to answer the phone after a couple of rings and be able to deal with your concerns
Singapore's star is shining ever more brightly as a top tourist destination - it has a fantastic bar and foodie scene and a host of new design hotels. And of course it has a reputation for being a super-safe and super-clean city.
The island city-state off southern Malaysia is a melting pot of trade, tourism and cultures - it's a global financial centre with a tropical climate and multi-cultural population.
Its colonial core centres on the Padang, a cricket field since the 1830s and now flanked by grand buildings such as City Hall, with its 18 Corinthian columns. And in Chinatown, dating from about 1820, stands the red-and-gold Buddha Tooth Relic Temple, said to house one of Buddha's teeth.
Singapore is ideal either as a final destination or as a stopover en route to Australia or New Zealand. Here's how to get the best and most fun out of it in two days.
A selection of flights from Heathrow land round about 6pm local time.
A 30-minute or so drive from Changi airport will get you to your hotel - and shortly afterwards to the bar, with perhaps a Madame Butterfly cocktail in your hand (tequila, watermelon, rosé wine and soda water).
Singapore's famous Raffles is reopening this summer after a major refurbishment, so a revitalising Singapore Sling will be available there - or otherwise that particular cocktail can also be thoroughly enjoyed at the Loof bar in the Civic District.
Day One, morning
Download the Grab app - Singapore's version of Uber - then head to the Marina Bay Sands Hotel, where you can pop up to the rooftop Lavo restaurant for brunch with a view. The ricotta pancakes with lemon and blueberries are divine. If you want something a little different, how about chicken and waffles?
Next door to the hotel is the lotus flower-shaped ArtScience Museum, which hosts exhibitions from design to technology. A short walk away, the Gardens By The Bay cover 250 acres and feature 220,000 plants.
The 18 futuristic, steel-clad 'trees' are actually giant exhausts for the turbines that cool the bio-dome greenhouses.
Head to one of Singapore's giant malls and you'll never be short of shopping and dining opportunities, but it's even better for a reviving blast of cool air in a city that often has high humidity levels.
At Ion on Orchard Road, there are plenty of designer stores to browse, although there are budget options too. As a tourist, you can claim back the seven per cent Goods & Services Tax.
When you're ready for a snack, go to the basement food court for toast with kaya, a caramel-like spread of sugar, coconut milk and eggs.
In Chinatown, chef Ivan Brehm, formerly of Heston Blumenthal's Fat Duck, conjures up superb flavours at Nouri. A five-course tasting menu with wine pairings costs £155 per person. Dishes include Afro-Brazilian fritters with turmeric, coconut sauce, bread and salted prawn vatapa, and nasturtium marshmallow with candied orange.
A short walk away is Native, where Vijay Mudaliar crafts cocktails from weird and wonderful ingredients including pureed grasshoppers.
Day Two, morning
Escape the hustle and bustle and see a different side of Singapore by taking the North-South line of the metro to Kranji and the Kranji War Cemetery, where 4,000 Commonwealth soldiers killed in two world wars lie buried.
Before you head back, join the locals in the Kopitam cafe at Kranji station, where a bowl of laksa - spicy noodle soup - costs less than £2.50.
Back in central Singapore, see places featured in the recent hit movie Crazy Rich Asians from the sidecar of a souped-up, chauffeur-driven Vespa. The two-hour tour includes a stop for food.
Hawker centres are an institution here - no-frills food courts where the prices are great and food is top-notch.
In Queenstown, Timbre+ provides a modern take on one, with outlets housed in shipping containers. Grab a bucket of ice for your beers, then choose a starter at one spot, a main somewhere else and dessert at a third.
Before you head to Changi Airport for your flight back to the UK, kick back at Timbre+'s rooftop pool - it's open until midnight.
