Harvey Edwards is awesome, would certainly recommend him to anyone!
Hotel was fantastic, quiet, right next to lovely beach. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Found great taverna nearby. All travel arrangements went very well. So thank you for arranging such a lovely break in such a great spot.
Reliable, friendly, always there if and when help is needed.
Always a pleasure to deal with DialAFlight. Callum has looked after us very well but if he is unavailable then anyone I have spoken to in the team has been great.
First class organisation as always - thank you to Vinny.
Brilliant service, thank you
Have now used Simon Pitman several times to book holidays and they have all been great. He is very knowledgeable about the places we are going to and the hotels are always superb for quality and service
Absolutely fantastic hotel that was suggested to us - the service from DialAFlight was faultless. The flights were good and on time both ways, the hotel was spotless, food was fantastic, staff were so friendly - all in all a FANTASTIC holiday - well done Rebecca Wilkie. We are now contemplating where we are going next ...
Eric is AMAZING ... patient, helpful and always polite.
Always helpful and make it easy for us
The Greek agents were great. All the arrangements - flights, transfers and ferry tickets worked perfectly and made for an excellent holiday - thank you
Amazing trip. Thank you for everything - especially Damian
Thank you Orlando - fantastic as always. You make booking a holiday enjoyable and less stressful and you are always honest in your opinion which we really appreciate! Great choice of hotels
Liam Rush is excellent. We'll only ever use him now for all our travel
Luke Neilson was excellent. He arranged a holiday that matched everything we asked for. We will always come back to Luke and recommend him to our friends.
Over the years I’ve built up a great relationship with Howard. He knows exactly what I like and has recommended some cracking hotels to me. This year was especially good, so good we re-booked for 2023 before we came home! Thanks so much Howard, you always deliver…
Des Wing booked us another brilliant holiday! Everything went smoothly and he was on hand to answer any questions while we were away.
Unfortunately I had to move rooms but the hotel was very helpful. Otherwise great hotel.
Great service throughout
Lee gave a 5 star service as always.
Very reassuring to know that Leah or one of her team is always available for advice and support from initial booking to returning home.
Complete peace of mind every time, knowing that everything is well organised and under control.
Excellent service throughout including contacting us after 9pm when our BA flight in the morning was cancelled and rebooking us.
Great service and advice. I am a fan, thank you team.
As ever Matthew and the team gave us a great holiday
Gordon did all he could to get us a holiday - it made my two little grand daughters so happy after being locked up for nearly 3 years without a break .
Bill was fantastic yet again in helping us plan a great trip - thank you for your diligence and care.
All travel arrangements went to plan and the hotel met our expectations. We had a lovely relaxing holiday and would highly recommend booking with DialAFlight to anyone!
With all the problems around travel this trip was a doddle for all seven of us.
Very helpful for our flights and holiday - always quickly answer the phone and would have no hesitation to use again
It's known for sun-soaked beaches, crystal clear waters and ancient landmarks... but Greece has also won a special place in the hearts of those who love a holiday that excites their taste buds.
On Kefalonia, the largest of the Ionian Islands in western Greece, Assos is one of the most beautiful villages. At the Assos Restaurant, you'll be seated in a courtyard beneath vines which create a cosy canopy. It's tempting to try everything, from skordalia (garlicky mashed potato) and tirokafteri (feta cheese and red-hot chilli peppers) to spetzofai (a delectable sausage and tomato stew).
Another gem in Assos is the Platanos Restaurant. This is the region's oldest bistro, where you'll be welcomed by Panayiotis Kokolis, whose father owns the restaurant.
The fishing village of Fiscardo and Vatsa Bay, with its freshwater streams, are definitely places to try for fish dishes. At the latter you'll find quirky diners among the conifers and olive groves, serving up fish fresh from the boats.
On Rhodes, the Grande Albergo delle Rose (Italian for the Grand Hotel of Roses) is at the northern tip of the island and serves gourmet food. A fabulous rose garden encircles the history-laden building, where previous guests have included Winston Churchill and shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis.
A little less grand, but quite charming, is the Marco Polo Cafe, in the cobbled alleyways of Rhodes old town. It's a courtyard bistro with a fountain - perfect background noise for a romantic dinner for two.
Romance can be all about indulgence, and with veal rib steak on the menu and creamy tiramisu or panna cotta for dessert (crafted by the best patisserie chef in town) your heart - and tummy - will be full.
Finger food is often the perfect recipe for date night and Ateya Café Meze ramps up the romantic atmosphere as the gentle strum of Greek guitar melts through the air, carried by the warm breeze that the diner is famed for thanks to its position on the island.
One culinary treat that consistently crops up on Grecian menus is baklava. And one of the best at making it is Rosy's Bakery in Corfu.
This family-run establishment offers the ultimate sweet Greek treats, with baked goods laden with kumquats, pistachios, chocolate and oranges. The bakery is a fun place to visit with its walls adorned with jaunty graffiti, declaring phrases such as 'We Got Fat Here'.
The island also boasts a location used in the James Bond movie For Your Eyes Only - a gorgeous balcony at Achillion Palace, offering incredible views. And not far away is Mouse Island , one of Corfu's most-photographed spots, stunningly green and boasting the 13th century church of Pantokrator.
A wonderful spot to enjoy a Greek sunset is The Old Fortress. Built in the 15th century by the Venetians it overlooks Spianada Square and the sea.
As night falls in Corfu there's perhaps only one place to be, Aktaion, where you can see the moon emerging from behind The Old Fortress.
On Kos, you'll find Agios Theologos Kefalos - a mecca for the seafood lovers with its renowned grilled fish dishes. For dessert, try ravani - a syrupy sponge cake crafted on site by the owner’s wife.
Visit the Ammos Restaurant in Halkidiki for a true taste of the Med, or enjoy a renowned sunset dinner at Taverna Psarou across the turquoise waters in Zante.
In Crete you can picnic on the beach or in an olive grove - with sparkling wines, cheese platters and raki.
One thing is for sure: no matter where you choose to holiday in Greece, food will definitely be central to your sunshine adventure.
