Colin was just amazing and so helpful and nothing was too much trouble for him
You were absolutely amazing and I cannot thank you enough for your friendliness and superb advice. A special thank you to Kennedy for her brilliant help in planning my trip. I wouldn't hesitate to use you again and have already recommended you to others
Getting assistance with the transfer was great
Excellent customer service. Elliott was so helpful and responded straight away to any queries. I would definitely book with DialAFlight in the future.
Thanks very much for your usual excellent service.
Fabulous service and smooth travel
Great job by Darren.
Lincoln is fantastic.
Look forward to booking my next trip with you.
Adam great as always
Would think twice about flying with BA due to the 24 hour waiting time at Heathrow due to flight cancellation and their lack of customer care. Qantas runs ring around them.
Darren was excellent throughout the preparation of our trip.
Your side was perfect - can't say the same for Emirates Airlines flight
I have numerous criticisms of Singapore airlines and will copy you in to my email correspondence. Whilst I am aware that these issues are nothing to do with you I thought they may help you with other customers.
Would definitely use again, thank you
Great trip - flights all on time, great service thank you.
Excellent service - I always speak very highly of you.
Many thanks to Stan.
Great service and all my travels went smoothly!
Emirates were fantastic the best service and very quick getting through baggage and customs
As always very helpful
Great service from you and Emirates. Only marred on one leg having to sit next to a woman of a certain size whose body fat squeezed below and above the arm rest and took up a quarter of my seat.
Keep up the good work
Great price and advice on booking to get a competitive price. Good email liaison.
Many thanks to Lloyd and his team. A credit to the Company.
Reece delivered once again, never fails
The anticipated 'assistance ' through the airports failed on one sector on the way out and completely on the return journey. Fortunately I was not too bad and managed to cope.
Very friendly and helpful. Have used you many times. I always recommend
Always use you when we can
First class service. I was able to contact you for any queries. So this was stress free. I will definitely recommend you to friends and others.
Australia is awash with 'must see' destinations, but the Gold Coast was at one time never really one of them. Queensland's formerly brash coastal holiday spot - home of the bikini and dubbed the nation's plastic surgery capital - was long regarded as a kind of Antipodean Blackpool. But boy, have things changed!
THE NEW GOLD COAST
A thriving film industry has sprung up. Thor: Ragnarok, starring local Chris Hemsworth, and the latest Pirates Of The Caribbean are two blockbusters filmed at the huge Gold Coast Village Roadshow Studios.
Then there's the mega theme parks such as Dreamworld, Wet'n'Wild Water World and Warner Bros Movie World which have helped make the Gold Coast an exciting family holiday destination.
And Spring 2018 will see the region's coastline and glorious rainforest interior beamed on to our screens during the 21st Commonwealth Games, held on the Gold Coast and in Queensland's state capital, Brisbane.
The Gold Coast is actually a collection of vibrant and distinct neighbourhoods fringing 41 miles of breathtaking beaches.
One way to discover them is on the new hop-on, hop-off G:link tram network, which trundles up and down the coast from Surfers Paradise down to Broadbeach, with its elegant concert hall, casino, and huge, designer-label packed Pacific Fair shopping mall.
Just behind the beachfront, neighbourhoods have been turned into island communities by 162 miles of inland waterways.
'We have more canals than Amsterdam and Venice combined,' our captain tells us as we sail off to explore the waterways with family-run Wyndham Cruises.
'We may not have the history, but we have the beauty. And we often see ospreys, turtles and dolphins around these waters. And 17,000 humpback whales migrate past the Gold Coast each year.'
The boat slips around water-ways that have folded the land into lush pleats of acacia, palm and eucalyptus trees. On each pleat sits a lavish house, where his 'n' hers jet-skis spoon on private jetties.
This is ultra-exclusive Main Beach, Hollywood's home from home when on location ('that's Johnny Depp's house, that's Penelope Cruz's').
A TOUCH OF GLAMOUR
When they want to party, the stars head to nearby Marina Mirage: decidedly more Monte Carlo than Blackpool, this is the upscale harbour attached to the swanky Palazzo Versace hotel.
The Gold Coast is bursting with imaginative eateries and artisan breweries, and there's a booming nightlife to go with it. The Collective - a five-kitchens-in-one concept with roof bar at Palm Beach - is standing room only.
It's also standing-room only at Miami Marketta, an old tram shed converted into a mix of bars, street-food stalls and live bands. We eat, drink and dance as if we're at a music festival.
An hour's drive up the coast, Brisbane may be Australia's third-largest city, but parts of it have the feel of an old-fashioned country town with plenty of colonial architecture.
I follow the picturesque Riverwalk footpath along the banks of the Brisbane River to New Farm park. Popular with locals for weekend barbies, the key attraction is the magnificent Brisbane Powerhouse: a former 1920s power station, now an arts complex with terraced bars, DJs and bands.
The 214-mile-long Brisbane River flows through the heart of the city.
AT ONE WITH NATURE
I catch a Miramar Cruise from South Bank - Brisbane's cultural hub - to see more of it. It's a beautiful journey past eucalyptus trees crammed with parrots, and vistas of mangrove lagoons and bat colonies. We disembark at the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, a wildlife centre for rescued orphaned and injured koalas.
Although they are notoriously lethargic, they are also adorable, and seeing them in all their fluffy-eared cuteness is the perfect end to a trip Down Under.
