Everything was beyond our expectations.
Very helpful. No problems.
A little disappointed on the hotel choice. Said city view deluxe. The room was very basic with plastic shower hose on tap
As always Fergus and colleagues organised our trip to Vietnam and Australia perfectly. It was seamless.
Still able to assist me when I was in Vietnam. Excellent service
Nicholas Brew was outstanding - from the first phone call I made to a last minute flight change from the Vietnamese airline he was able to make this very important trip to meet long lost family an absolute delight. I literally cannot speak highly enough of him and think everyone needs a Nicholas! DialAFlight is an unexpected revelation to me even after 40 years of independent travel!
Fantastic holiday arranged for us by Travis
Jerry is always helpful
Glen was more than helpful with advice and options. I would and do recommend
Bradley and team excellent as ever. I always use DialAFlight you can't go wrong.
Fantastic helpful service. Like you have done over the last 15 years
Vinnie as always planned the trip perfectly.
Fantastic from start to finish, many thanks to Shelley and the team!
Travel plans were made very easy thanks to Jordan Fell
Philippa was excellent as always. Great using her and always a big help.
You created the most perfect trip possible on our first visit to Vietnam. The tour, especially, was perfect and we got to see things we wouldn't have done otherwise in Hanoi and Hoi An. The only "miss" was the luxury hotel in Cam Ranh - which was stunning, and with beds that were like floating on a cloud - but we were very far from anything and had to use their restaurants, charging UK prices. Overall you saved me days of angst trying to put my own trip together and came up trumps for our holiday.
Wonderful service, very helpful and very patient staff. It can't be better. All excellent.
Noah and his tremendous, outstanding work has done it yet AGAIN. He made my 40th birthday special with 20 of my friends to Brazil, my mum's 60th birthday amazing and my 20 years anniversary (together) with my wife and son to Vietnam. I’ll certainly be telling all of my friends and family about DialAFlight!
Edward was very helpful
Please thank Seymour and all the team for helping me with a seemingly ever changing travel schedule.
Hayley arranged our flights to Vietnam and was very helpful and friendly. All documents were sent promptly and it was made very easy, thank you so much. We got a better price then any of the online websites. Will definitely be using again for our next trip in January.
Jim, as always, created the most amazing holiday experience
I would and will be using DialAFlight again. They were super efficient friendly and listened to everyting i wanted.
All went smoothly.
As ever Roger was brilliant. On top of all communications at every step of the process .
Code sharing with BA was disappointing. Their leg of the journey was very below the standards of Qatar.
A fantastic experience from start to finish. Glen was very patient during the planning with me making lots of changes. The trip went so smoothly, with Exo delivering an amazing, flawless experience.
Conrad was always ready to help and easy to get hold of
Connie was very helpful and responsive... couldn't have been better!
Amazing holiday in Vietnam, thank you for your help
Just across the road from my luxury beach resort I spotted a little track leading off into the countryside between some big clumps of bamboo.
So, one morning, just as the sun was rising over the South China Sea, I set off to explore. I left behind the base for my holiday in Vietnam: the extremely comfortable new five-star Nam Hai Resort. This glamorous Four Seasons beachfront hotel is a solid example of the 'new Vietnam' - a prosperous, modern and forward-looking country which has succeeded in putting the terrible dark days of war well behind it.
THE NEW VIETNAM
But on the other side of the busy highway, I discovered that there was another type of Vietnam… a charming, exotic and fascinating place that makes it one of today's most sought-after destinations.
I rode my hotel bike past water buffalo and storks in rice paddy fields alongside farmers working away thigh-deep in water. I pedalled through a series of ramshackle villages, where I saw huge cargoes of coconuts being transported balanced on mopeds and fishermen throwing their nets into the waterways right outside their homes.
A BIKING ADVENTURE
Amid the lush vegetation that was teeming with wildlife, I stumbled upon brightly coloured homemade shrines, where families make quirky offerings to dead ancestors - strange gifts for dead aunties and uncles, such as half finished packets of biscuits or empty drink cans.
Later, back on the other side of the road, at the Nam Hai Resort, I could relax after my eye-boggling bike ride. It felt as if I had returned to a quite different world. An immaculately turned out waiter brought me a chilled coconut drink on a silver tray.
The Nam Hai is a sensational resort, with spa treatment rooms spread across a lake and 100 private villas under palm trees along the beach. Many villas have the luxury of their own pools but the three-tier central infinity pool at the heart of the resort means that nobody could feel short-changed. Beach lovers will also not be disappointed with a beach named by Forbes as one of the best in the world.
Staying in Nam Hai completely banishes any lingering out-of-date image of Vietnamese holidays: that it's a place for intrepid backpackers happy to rough it. For example, I took a hotel tour to the enormous citadel at Hue. I was given an English-speaking guide and we visited the emperor's palaces, fortifications and temples inside the vast walled city.
The Nam Hai is set about halfway up the coast, a perfect location for visiting three of the country's top attractions: Imperial Hue, the temples of My Son in the rainforest and the harbour town of Hoi An. It is also a short drive from the waterfront metropolis of Da Nang, the beautiful vivid green Annamite Mountains and the grottos, caves and temples of the Marble Mountains.
A WORLD-CLASS BEACH
And if that lot doesn't comprise a sufficiently diverse range of attractions, the resort stands right on the fabulous, spectacular Ha My beach. This is a world-class strip of clean white sand that runs for 30 miles around the bay. Ha My is so long I always seemed to have about half a mile of beach entirely to myself.
On the last night of my stay at the resort, I wanted to savour one last magical Vietnamese experience. I decided that I would go for a late swim on Ha My beach, with the waves lapping just a few steps in front of my private villa. I rushed through the palm trees, across the warm sand and into the gentle surf. The sea was 29°C - as warm as a bath.
The sunset was turning the sky orange behind the distant jagged mountains along the western horizon. The light was rapidly fading and, quite a way out to sea, hundreds of flickering lights marked the lanterns of junk-like fishing boats bobbing in the waves. It was one of the most magical moments of my entire trip to this captivating destination.
