Great communication. Love the app. Great choice of itinerary. Thanks.
Great holiday experience.
Other than Emirates I also flew with Star and they must be the worst airline flying. I never wish to use them again.
Only bad point was the Emerald hotel didn't have an adult pool. It was geared up for young children which spoilt it a bit.
Everything working like clockwork
Everything as discussed and delivered
Liam has been amazing. Trip was everything we asked for and more. Great communication and I would highly recommend to anyone who asks!
Very fuss and stress free. Had a courtesy call a week before to ensure I had all the information I required.
Great and simple service
Niall was superb from initial enquiries through to the actual holiday, even dealing with potential issues which were sorted straight away. App is also very good and as a package DialAFlight was 5*!
Ben's service is outstanding
We had the best time! The Zeavola Resort was divine! We will definitely be asking you about future holidays
It was well organised thanks to Harvey
Howard and team were fantastic as usual
Sebastian once again was a complete star. So impressed with your professionalism. Look forward to booking our next trip very soon!
Always use your company for my flights and recommend anyone looking to book flights to try you first.
Everything went very smoothly. Thank you very much for organising the holiday and making it so easy. We really appreciate the excellent customer service - nothing was too much trouble and the two weeks were problem free.
The first two hotels were excellent but the third hotel was not the standard we usually get from DialAFlight. However, all flights and transfers were perfect. Qatar Airways lost one of our staircases for 36 hours but this was not the fault of DialAFlight.
Very well planned trip. Everything was perfect
Steven was absolutely fantastic - cannot fault in any way - he really delivered a quite hard and specific holiday package. Will highly recommend him to anyone looking and also Sarah Woods for all the help and contact info.
We have been booking holidays with you for years. You have always provided an excellent service. It is reassuring to know that you are there for us should we have any problems while we are away..
Fantastic holiday in Thailand arranged by Manni. Everything ran smoothly. Hotels were in the best possible locations for access to everything we needed. Would definitely recommend and use again.
Once again the service was impeccable
Brilliant communication and gave us what we wanted at a great price
Seamless from start to finish! Special thank you to Marie Mckeown and her hard work
I will always use DialAFlight - never had a problem
Excellent service as ever. I have been using DialAFlight for 9 years for long haul destinations. Adam could not be more helpful. What I most love is their flexibility and honesty - they will help you get the trip you want for the budget you have.
Very good service and tailor made for us
Trekking through jungles, snorkelling in a lagoon and lounging on the beach with a cocktail - they were all high on our 'things-to-do' list as we set off for Thailand on a chilly English morning.
But as we strapped ourselves into our plane seats, along with our 20-month-old daughter, the thought did cross my mind - maybe I should have done all this as a teenage backpacker rather than a first-time parent?
Could we really enjoy the best this fabulous South East Asian country has to offer with our toddler in tow? The answer, it turned out, was an unequivocal 'yes' - and it was far easier than we thought thanks to memorable stays at the Nai Harn in Phuket and the dusitD2 in Krabi.
The Nai Harn, Phuket's only member of the elite Leading Hotels of the World group, overlooks a sweeping bay of the same name.
Any pangs of regret my wife and I had about not doing Thailand on the cheap as students were quickly swept away as we explored our Grand Ocean View Room and walked out onto a private terrace with what must surely be one of the finest views in Phuket.
But with the luxury comes an extremely family friendly atmosphere. Staff go out of their way to make sure parents with young children have what they need for a comfortable stay.
They are happy to set up a parasol on the glorious sandy beach below and provide towels for the day while the swimming pool features a shallow section for toddlers.
Our little one spent hours splashing around in the pool and in the evening, with conditions a little cooler, we moved to the beach - fresh fruit smoothies in hand - to watch the sun go down.
The hotel also features magnificent restaurants, including the Rock Salt where we enjoyed cocktails, a beautiful seafood platter and Thai delicacies all just yards away from the beach.
Chefs at the hotel cure their own meats and make their own cheese while the wine list is drawn up by international expert James Suckling. Breakfast is an event in itself, with a dizzying area of options and plenty of space meaning there was no undignified scramble for the buffet.
For a dreamy sundowner, guests head to the Nai Harn's sprawling infinity-edged rooftop bar, Reflections. As well as cocktails, the area also features the Han-Sha sushi bar where dishes are prepared in front of you.
After an unforgettable stay at the Nai Harn, it was time for our second destination - Krabi to the south.
Rather than brave public transport or sea transport, we opted for the comfort of a taxi transfer. Before long we had arrived at our next hotel, the dusitD2 in the coastal tourist hotspot of Ao Nang.
The 173-room hotel is under 20 miles from Krabi International Airport, tucked away in lush jungle greenery on a hillside, yet within easy walking distance to the sweeping town beach and close to shops and restaurants.
It has been entirely refurbished and updated and is a rebrand of the previous Vogue Resort and Spa.
Our room on the top floor had superb views looking out over the towering, craggy limestone cliffs that define the area.
The newly-opened hotel has everything you need for a comfortable family stay - a great restaurant, an outdoor swimming pool with a separate children's pool, a fitness centre, a spa and a children's playground.
But the trump card for this well-run and friendly hotel is its location. Within ten minutes, you can find yourself setting sail on an adventure to tropical islands, looking for monkeys along forest trails, kayaking over turquoise seas or even rock climbing on some of the jagged cliffs.
On one day, we zoomed around the coast to glorious Railay beach - accessible only by boat - and spent a day lounging on the pristine crescent of sand in the bay.
We also hired one of the area's iconic long-tail boats and took a day trip to Hong Island - a tiny paradise island with a blissful lagoon, ample shade, great snorkelling and a nature trail.
Back on the mainland, the hotel's in-house tour desk also arranged for us to visit local hot springs - a cascading network of waterfalls leading to pools with bath-like temperatures hidden in dense jungle.
Another day trip took us to the stunning Emerald Pools. Our little girl was mesmerised as we explored the huge web of turquoise pools and towering tropical trees along the jungle path.
Our trip may not have been a backpacking odyssey - but as a family adventure, it was unbeatable.
