Thank you very much Samuel Jalloh
Everything perfect as usual. Never had a problem. Excellent service
Chloe and Glen were really helpful each time I called and supportive in terms of any queries I had, really friendly and I will definitely get back in touch with either of them when I am planning another trip
Had a great holiday and many thanks to DialAFlight who were superb throughout. The flight went really smoothly
Booking was easy. Had to check a few things and communication was always fast
Another fantastic holiday organised by Kieran Greenfield at DialAFlight. As always everything went to plan and the family had a great time.
Troy is a credit to your company and cannot recommend his services highly enough
Rupert Chadderton was excellent throughout. He fully understood our preferences. All hotels, transfers, food were spot on.
Particular shout out to Chloe Ward who was our travel adviser and fantastic!
Michael organised two trips for us this year and both were fantastic. He always responded to our queries really quickly. We had an issue about our room booking in Thailand and this was resolved without hesitation.
Many thanks for sorting out our Thailand flights and the updates. We had a wonderful holiday made easier with booking our flights through yourselves.
Great holiday, everything pre-arranged and went as planned. Curtis also kept me informed of flight changes.
Thank you - supported a great trip. Appreciated.
Nicole was first class all the way through our booking. Very informative and honest. Itinerary on the app was priceless with all the information to hand. Thank you for making our holiday as stress free as possible.
Been booking with Charlie Miles for over 12 years. I wouldn’t use anybody else.
Very helpful and professional team, rare these days.
Fantastic service as always. Guy stayed in contact at all times to ensure the journey went as smoothly as possible.
Having DialAFlight support me during my journey to and from Thailand was a bonus. Travel isn't easy these days and airlines don't always deliver what you expect. The team at were there for me at the end of the phone ready to offer help when I needed it.
Nicky was fantastic!
Many thanks to Jordan. Our holiday was amazing from start to finish. We will never book a holiday with any other tour operator. DialAFlight never disappoints. All our dreams came true
Dominic, as always, amazing
Cheers Brody, see you in November
You provided an excellent service and I have already recommended you to a lot of my friends,
My experience with DialAFlight in such challenging times was excellent. Graham has the patience of a saint
Philippa has been excellent helping with changes and providing clear information in these challenging travel times
Everything was perfect
Disappointed in Thai Airways food and Business Class not worth the money but travel agent excellent
Great service, really impressed. Will be in touch later this year for some Australia flights.
My plan for my eagerly-anticipated trip to Thailand was - there was no plan. Just three weeks of winter sunshine, island-hopping with a girl pal - a relaxing break from my job as a weather forecaster on ITV.
After flying to Bangkok, we took another plane direct to Krabi on the west of the mainland. There was no time to waste... a beach was waiting.
Railay Bay in Krabi is picture-perfect Thailand and the ideal place to kick off a holiday. Long-tail boats parked in neat rows bobbed along the shoreline with crystal-clear turquoise water lapping at the limestone cliffs. The cliffs are popular with climbers.
I didn't quite muster the courage to scale a sheer rock face in a harness - although we did clamber up a 70-degree slope using just ropes. It was totally worth it.
After the initial steep incline, we found ourselves in rainforest-style terrain with a breathtaking view of the entire peninsula.
The striking white cliffs and dense tropical jungle-style greenery define Krabi.
We drank our body weight in fresh coconut milk and pina coladas in our first couple of days as we acclimatised to our new surroundings and gradually began to relax.
Afternoons were spent deciding where to sunbathe after simple lunches - mostly of satays and papaya salads.
We called the latter 'papaya salad roulette'- as you never knew how spicy it was going to be. Some were well into blow-your-socks-off country.
I lost count of the massages we had, each one leaving me blissfully floppy.
We loved the bars with their boho beanbags, low tables and bamboo terraces overlooking the bay.
We didn't want to leave Railay Bay in Krabi, but we had arranged to head to Phuket to meet up with some ex-pat friends over from Hong Kong.
We stayed at the famous Slate hotel. It's a huge hotel with a choice of three pools surrounded by tropical plants - and even our room came with its own courtyard, plunge pool and outside bathtub.
Nearby, Nai Yang Beach was quiet and unspoilt - a fitting location for sundowners and more popular with locals swinging in their hammocks than tourists.
From Phuket, the hotel arranged our transfers to Koh Lanta via the island of Phi Phi, where we stopped off for the day and hired a long-tail boat to go snorkelling. With just us aboard, our guide tailor-made the whole afternoon and we even found an idyllic little secluded bay for lunch.
We then took a ferry to Koh Lanta. Until I arrived in Koh Lanta I thought I had reached the peak of relaxation - but there it was like stepping back in time, with a slightly hippy vibe.
I saw as many home-made signs for beachside yoga as I did for happy hours. The resort was on the edge of Phra-Ae Beach, home to a string of rustic restaurants and chilled-out bars.
Beach barbecues became an evening ritual - barefoot, still in our sundresses, bikinis and smelling of sun cream. I'm sure all this made the freshly-barbecued fish and local Singha beer taste even better.
For a change of scenery we took a tuk tuk to nearby Long Beach - three miles of soft sand fringed by shady tall pine trees. The shade was something we were craving after going out on paddle-boards in the strong late-afternoon sunshine.
I'd only paddle-boarded once before but the still, clear waters of the Andaman Sea were the ideal place to get into the swing of it. After a very floppy few days in Koh Lanta, it was time to mentally prepare ourselves to head back to London life, via Bangkok.
Bustling Bangkok was an assault on the senses at first after so much relaxation. But Hotel Muse couldn't have suited us better. In a brilliant location, it was a calm sanctuary in the craziness of Bangkok's streets. Our suite was huge, with the comfiest beds.
Someone had suggested we go to a club called Sing Sing - it's one of the best I've ever been to, buzzy and with friendly staff. With espresso martinis in hand, we made friends from all over the world.
I already plan to go back to meet them there again.
