Exceptional service - will definitely use again and have already recommended to friends
We always receive outstanding, personal, service from Philip which we greatly appreciate.
Noah is brilliant. Your service is excellent. Thank you for your help planning our trip.
I needed to travel to Sydney ASAP and the travel consultant arranged my business class flights quickly and efficiently. The fare quoted was also good value given the late booking.
I’ve used DialAFlight before and was glad I chose them again. From start to finish the trip was smooth and well organised. Transfers arrived on time and got me to airports in plenty of time. Everything went to plan
Plenty of help as required
Excellent service provided by Orlando and the team.
What a fantastic company. Everything on my trip went so smoothly and I couldn’t recommend DialAFlight enough. If I had any questions they were more than happy to chat about it.
Isaac was excellent and very helpful.
Tammy was really helpful throughout the booking experience and after. It took all the stress out of booking flights and I will be using DialAFlight in the future
Very reliable and efficient. Service is second to none. Ryan is a pleasure to deal with and really knows his stuff. Highly recommend.

Our trip was well planned - thank you to Arthur Francis for organising it
Alfie and Ollie are wonderful - they take excellent care of me and have done for years. Don't know what I would do without them!
As always flights were very good and although a long way not a bit stressful
Amazing service from DialAFlight. I know where to come should I ever need to poach staff! Every member of the team knew their stuff and Teddy was just fantastic
Warn customers that on the Etihad 787 the seating in business class is not what you may be used to with other airlines (half the seats face towards the rear of the plane)
Marshall was very knowledgeable and efficient
Had to make changes mid trip and you were very responsive. Donovan excellent throughout
Liam was very helpful
Sean was amazing, so helpful. We will definitely travel with you again
Sydney is one of the best cities in the world to fly into. It always makes me smile. You see Sydney Harbour in all its radiance and prepare yourself for a beauty fest. In this perfect city, the sun shines, the water sparkles and superb sights abound. We were treating ourselves to five days there to celebrate my husband Jonathan's birthday, and had splashed out on the Park Hyatt Hotel, perfectly located for the historic Rocks district and busy Circular Quay, and boasting ravishing views of the pearly white Opera House. It was also handy for climbing the Harbour Bridge.
On the big day, clad in the special blue and grey bridge suits, having taken the required breathalyser test and signed the necessary forms, we joined the eager climbers aiming for a 360 degree view of the city. Not only was the climb brilliantly organised, but the views from the 440ft vantage point at the top were astounding. I'd booked Nomad in the Surry Hills for Jonathan's birthday dinner. Think old warehouse with lots of light, chic yet intimate. Also think glossy goat's cheese drizzled with truffle honey, juicy roast pork with cheese and sweet potato gratin, and feather-light doughnuts dipped in rosewater and cardamon custard.
The meal was outstanding. We ended the evening with champagne on our hotel balcony, humming Lou Reed's Perfect Day and drinking in the view of the shimmering Opera House. I wanted to book something extra special for my car-loving husband's birthday gift. So, the next day, a lovingly polished 1964 EH Holden Premier picked us up. Even at the Hyatt, where flash cars are common, this gleaming motor icon caused quite a stir.
We cruised around the boho Redfern district and were charmed by Bronte Beach. We sipped flat whites on a grassy knoll overlooking the rolling waves of Bondi Beach and lunched at Kitchen by Mike, a fab favourite with Sydneysiders.
A must-do is a trip to the Blue Mountains, so named due to the blue haze from sunlight interacting with eucalyptus oil particles in the air.
A two-hour drive from the city brings you to views that blow you away. There are hundreds of uncrowded lookout points, cascading waterfalls, steep ravines and rain forests. The area is steeped in Aboriginal history. We checked into the stylish Lilianfels Resort & Spa, a five-star hotel renowned for fabulous food and adjacent to the awesome rock formation called The Three Sisters.
Lilianfels is also next to Scenic World, with the world's steepest incline railway, a cableway to and from the rain forest floor, and the Scenic Skyway, a glass-bottomed cable car gliding between cliff tops across the stunningly rugged Jamison Valley. We'd been told nearby Leura village was flush with restaurants and coffee houses.
We strolled down the tree-lined main street, popping into quirky boutiques, and picnicked on Leura Bakehouse fresh-from-the-oven pies in the idyllic grounds of the renowned Everglades Gardens. And so to the highlight of our New South Wales adventure. The drive from the Blue Mountains to the Wolgan Valley was scenic and relatively short. We arrived at the One&Only Wolgan Valley Resort & Spa, where red sandstone rocks towering above this most tranquil of private valleys gleamed in the evening sun, kangaroos and wallabies grazed peacefully, and the beautiful, scattered resort cottages were barely visible. In ours, a double-sided cosy fireplace separated the lounge and bedroom, the shower had a glass star-gazing roof, and we had our own 25ft heated pool.
Mountain bikes are parked outside and hiking and horse riding are included, as are all meals. The dining experience, from breakfast to dinner, was superlative. The spacious spa is private and akin to pampering heaven. If you want some serious spoiling, fantastic bush walking and wildlife spotting, this is the place. The only downside? We booked three nights and wish we'd opted for six.
