Very professional and user friendly
I always use Les Edmondson as my go to man. I would recommend this company
Excellent service again. I don't bother looking anywhere else. Excellent prices and excellent service both before and during the trip. Highly recommended.
Everything went smoothly. Flight delayed at both ends but that was not the fault of DialAFlight. Just Heathrow.
Absolutely brilliant company. A special thank you to Ted for everything he has done for me.
The Transat premium economy was excellent - better than Virgin as only 12 seats with one dedicated steward. Highly recommend.
Another successful trip thank you
Mild downside that we had an 8 hour wait in Toronto, but Tammy found us good flights and at fair price. Booking again in 2024!
Paul has been superb, highly recommended and in fact he sorted flights for my brother to go to Australia.
I have used DialAFlight before and on every holiday they have delivered. Great staff, very friendly and helpful.
Always excellent service
The DialAFlight team were excellent but the hotel which was recommended was truly awful. I will never use a Radisson hotel again and would like to know who to complain to.
Absolutely super service from Zoe Lane and colleagues. We will definitely use you again and recommend you to all our friends. You took all the hassle out of booking tickets
Great trip thank you
Carry on as you do.
This is the 2nd time we have used you. Tristan has been fantastic and we will be using you again in the future
KLM let you down with their poor service. And bad attitude. The split of days at different locations could have been better. Less time in cities, more in the country.
Unfortunately one of our internal flights from Winnipeg to Toronto was delayed 6.5 hours, Nevertheless we had an amazing time in Canada . Thanks for organising the flights
Friendly, helpful care and advice as usual.
Really helpful, answered phone when we had an issue, highly recommended
Great service, price and follow ups.
Thank you for an excellent service. My travel arrangements to Canada and USA went without a hitch. I was glad to have been travelling Premier Plus with United on the way back from LA as my journey of 10 hours was very comfortable.
Warren always gives us the best help and advice and we have recommended him to those looking to book a flight.
Takes all the pain and anxiety out of booking flights but retains all the fun
Always an easy process booking with DialAFlight. Consistently excellent customer service.
It all went smoothly. Just for info - the food on Air Canada was pretty awful!
Good personal service
Thank you Bruce for being available to answer my queries. Apart from the assisted travel, which was useless and chaotic in Canada and could have been run better in the UK, my trip went well.
I've already recommended you to many friends and family and look forward to using your services again in the future.
Mason and Russell went out of their way to solve the problems I had prior to my departure on holiday.
Suits may have waved goodbye to its stars Meghan Markle and Patrick J. Adams, but the number of visitors to Toronto, where the TV drama series is filmed, has never been higher.
It's not hard to see why; the city is home to Canada's tallest skyscraper, the CN Tower, and biggest museum. And long before Suits, it was the backdrop to countless blockbusters. But if you just have 48 hours, here are the essential things to see…
Day One Morning:
Take a walking tour with Culinary Adventure Company to the Old Town and St Lawrence Market. You'll hear all about the history behind the 'haunted ballroom' of the King Edward Hotel, and see landmarks such as the Flatiron Building and the Cathedral Church of St James.
The tour finishes with a visit to the St Lawrence Market, where you'll try snacks from Toronto's best-loved vendors for lunch. A Toronto speciality is the peameal-bacon sandwich (a type of back bacon rolled in cornmeal) from Carousel Bakery. And you'll want to pick up a couple of jars of Kozlik's mustard - their maple syrup version is divine.
It's worth walking further east to the Distillery District, a trendy enclave of artists' studios, restaurants and shops, and featuring a weird spider sculpture.
Trek west to explore the city centre and track down filming locations for Suits. Fans will recognise Bay Adelaide Centre as the fictional offices of Specter-Litt. Bymark restaurant was the scene of several dinner dates.
Numerous meetings took place in hotel lobbies, including the Fairmont Royal York and the Ritz-Carlton.
The enormous Union Station handles some 300,000 passengers a day - and features Roman columns and Guastavino tiled ceilings that accentuate the Beaux-Arts building. You can enter PATH, the walkway that connects almost every building in the city centre. The mainly underground footpath is furnished with shops and restaurants so you never have to walk outside in the bitterly cold winter months. Go to Richmond Station restaurant for a casual dinner - the locals swear by their burgers.
Day Two Morning:
Begin at the Bloor Street Culture Corridor, where there are 20 museums and galleries.
The Royal Ontario Museum is the biggest in Canada. Its eye-catching exterior - a deconstructionist creation known as the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal - makes it hard to miss, but it's the Rotunda inside that you have to see.
More than a million squares of Venetian glass are used for the mosaic ceiling that's as impressive as any from the Byzantine era.
Venture north to Midtown, where you'll find Casa Loma. The palatial mansion, once the biggest private residence in Canada, was so lavish it ruined its original owner, Sir Henry Pellatt. The millionaire financier spent so much on its construction he was eventually declared bankrupt. By the time he died, he was living in the modest bungalow of his former chauffeur.
But the building now houses an extraordinary museum and is one of the best known filming locations in the city, featuring in movies such as X-Men and Scott Pilgrim vs The World.
We dine at Actinolite,in Ossington Avenue, one of Canada's best restaurants.
Stop off in New York:
Just one hour forty minutes away by flight, New York is a great destination to visit before or after your time in Toronto. Check out one of New York’s hottest new hotels in the heart of Manhattan, striking and stylish Made will bowl you over with its chic airy rooms, says James Murphy.
The bar in the lobby, with low-slung leather couches has the look of a smart living room - they want you to feel right at home. And there’s greenery, with oodles of pot plants and hanging baskets everywhere.
The bedrooms have bright wood panelling and very hipster unadorned concrete ceilings.
In the basement is the acclaimed restaurant Ferris and up on the roof is Good Behavior, a bar seemingly designed for quite the opposite, with two balconies, a 22ft curved glass wall and a cute little tiki bar. The bartender mixes a punchy tequila cocktail called a ‘Dirty Finery’.
As the setting sun turns the neighbour-ing Empire State Building to gold I order a second cocktail, happy to consider myself a Made man.
