Emirates were fantastic the best service and very quick getting through baggage and customs
Keep up the good work
As always very helpful
I have used DialAflight twice - Great company and nothing is to much trouble will defiantly use again
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
Always get good advice and service.
Very efficient and friendly service. More than happy to recommend and I would use your services again.
Used before and will keep using - fair prices
4 wonderful flights with no delays and great service. Meals were lovely. Back to visit family again next year. Here's to the next time with DialAFlight.
Once again trouble free travel arrangements, thank you.
The holiday was perfect from start to finish -well done Ivor
Great price and advice on booking to get a competitive price. Good email liaison.
Fab service all the way - thank you Jordan Will certainly use DialAFlight again without any hesitation
Many thanks to Lloyd and his team. A credit to the Company.
Flights with Thai Airways worked well particularly the timings. Thanks Lee
Really helpful and made everything easy from start to finish.
Reece delivered once again, never fails
The only problem was that Malaysian Airlines are not sure what a vegan meal is. But as usual DialAFlight provided exemplary service and I will always use them. Highly recommended.
Robert had great customer service skills. Friendly, helpful and informative. Everything happened as he outlined. I did not have any problems but felt confident the after sales care would have been there should any complications arise.
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.
All went well, you have never let me down, many thanks.
Assistance at Sydney Inernational to Domestic was really terrible (in and out of the wheelchair, walk down steep steps and look after myself ) I just thought you should know.
Edward Brown is a top bloke - very helpful.
Jeremy my consultant was brilliant.
I can’t believe how smoothly everything went, excellent service. Great price, everything just how I wanted it and the most polite and helpful people I have ever done business with. I will sing your praises to everyone.
Again you have delivered and helped get the best price for a short notice booking. I have used you for a number of years and you have never failed to provide an excellent service
Sadie did an excellent job and even did our group's Australian visa. I would highly recommend Sadie to anyone going longhaul
Stacey was brilliant and went the extra mile
Very friendly and helpful. Have used you many times. I always recommend
After wrapping up another Springwatch series, it was time to put on my ruby slippers and follow the yellow brick road to Oz.
My partner Nick is very Afrocentric when it comes to wildlife, so I've made it my mission to introduce him to the wilds of the world. He'd never seen a koala, kangaroo or wombat, let alone heard of a pademelon (smaller than a wallaby) or a potaroo (a nocturnal rat kangaroo), and neither had my 11-year-old son Ollie.
KEWARRA BEACH RESORT
We flew to Cairns for the start of our three-week holiday, and our first adventure was a boat trip to the Great Barrier Reef.
It's one of the wonders of the world and Ollie found everything fascinating, especially the fact that clownfish are all born males - the dominant male turns female only when the female of the group dies.
We were staying first at the Kewarra Beach Resort, just north of Cairns, and I woke up one morning to the sound of bats. I followed the racket and found the roost of thousands of fruit bats.
With binoculars, camera and mozzie spray to hand, I enjoyed their chitter-chatter for an hour. I was mesmerised.
Later, we went on the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway over the Barron Gorge National Park - an amazing way to view the world's oldest continually-surviving tropical rainforest.
THALA BEACH RESERVE
We moved on to the Thala Beach Nature Reserve, ten miles from Four Mile Beach. Like Kewarra, the comfortable rooms were set within a rainforest. We kept fit at both resorts: by doing yoga at Kewarra and by walking to breakfast at Thala - it's built on a very steep hill.
We couldn't resist a second visit to the Great Barrier Reef, travelling from Port Douglas.
The marina had a relaxed feel and the weather was sunny and calm.
I saw lots of gorgeous colourful coral and so many fish, and it was a privilege to be in this incredible underwater environment.
DAINTREE ECO LODGE
Next was the Daintree
Eco Lodge and Spa, with 15 beautiful treehouse-style rooms set along a river with a forest view. We loved it.
On our way to the Lodge, we'd stopped at Mossman Gorge and did the gorge walk - a two-hour amble through the rainforest, with an Aboriginal guide giving fascinating information about the site.
We also went on a sunset cruise from Daintree and enjoyed spotting crocodiles, kingfishers and the well-camouflaged Papuan frogmouth (a nocturnal bird related to a nightjar). A full-day tour took us to the remote headland and wildlife reserve of Cape Tribulation, Daintree rainforest, a lunch stop where we hand-fed wallabies - and a visit to a great ice-cream factory!
But a highlight was definitely Jungle Surfing - zip-wiring is surely the best way to experience one of the oldest tropical rainforests in the world.
JABIRU SAFARI LODGE
We headed inland to Jabiru Safari Lodge on the Mareeba Wetlands - a totally different experience. It had a real safari feel, with bush tents in open savannah. It really felt like the Outback.
I set the alarm for 4.30am to go on a hot-air balloon ride - so romantic.
After returning to earth we went in search of a wild platypus and with patience saw two in the river at Peterson Creek. They are extraordinary creatures, and we were lucky to spot them as they're nocturnal. We drove to the Nerada tea plantation, where they have resident tree kangaroos - and after a lot of looking we spotted them. That was another big tick considering they are now restricted to a small area of Australia.
I had a special reunion at Tolga bat hospital near Cairns, where I'd filmed at 15 years ago for the Really Wild Show. Staff rehabilitate lots of species but mainly fruit bats.
A relaxing final morning was spent at Jabiru - although we were woken early by a laughing kookaburra.
We all felt as if we'd followed the yellow brick road and had experienced the wonderful wildlife of Oz. But unlike Dorothy, we weren't ready to tap our ruby-red slippers together and fly home - we could've easily stayed for much longer.
