Cameron and team did a truly brilliant job. Just great to hand our dream itinerary to true professionals and then just get on with enjoying our offbeat holiday in South Africa.
Everything worked perfectly. Eve at DialAFlight was very attentive and helpful. I would always recommend her, plus everyone else I have spoken to in the company.
Thanks Teddy - great service
Raj always does an outstanding 'customer focused’ job.
My experience with Kelly was excellent. Advising, supporting all the way until the end of the trip. I felt safe and enjoyed my special trip with my daughters. Thank you so much and I hope we will have other wonderful trips to plan together in the near future
Excellent support from Justin
DialAFlight were brilliant but I cannot say the same for British Airways who were awful. On the trip out from Manchester - Heathrow -Cape Town (premium economy) they ran out of choices and offered us Gnocchi. The stewardesses were obviously in training and were quite useless. They ran out of choices for us at breakfast too. On the return journey we went to check in at Cape Town and were told the plane had been overbooked and they didn't have any seats left but they would ring London but we may have to fly the following day. After half an hour wait we were told we did have seats, one in premium and one in economy. The World's Favourite Airline? I don't bloody well think so. We will never fly British Airways again but stuck to KLM or Air France in future.
Yet again Larry pulled out all the stops and arranged our trip to South Africa at short notice
Luscious, seductive and the sun is always shining. That's the way Corfu is depicted in ITV's charming new drama, The Durrells.
What's more, the island is teeming with snakes and tortoises, and there are quaint tavernas filled with boisterous locals beneath olive groves on the edge of sparkling, cerulean seas.
But does the pristine, pre-war vision bear any relation to present-day reality?
Corfu certainly suffered some overdevelopment in the tourism boom of the Sixties, but it still offers opportunity for a host of authentic Durrell-esque experiences, and a whole lot more besides…
In the footsteps of The Durrells
In 1935, the dysfunctional Durrell family – pretentious twentysomething novelist Lawrence, gun-crazy second son Leslie, man-hungry teenager Margo and animal-loving Gerald (who grew up to be the conservationist and author of My Family And Other Animals, based on his time on the island) – upped sticks from chilly England, led by their long-suffering mother, and settled near Corfu Town.
For a similarly idyllic location, your best bet is to visit the pretty north-east corner, where The Durrells was filmed. The lovely bay of San Stefano is a perennial favourite with British holidaymakers. Or you could even stay in the apartments at the atmospheric White House in nearby Kalami, where Lawrence wrote.
If you're keen to catch sight of a few tortoises of the kind that fascinated young Gerald, visit in late June when they're at their most active. Hiring a motorboat is a must. You could even spot a pod of dolphins, or even a ponderous sea-turtle.
Discover Margo's bay
One of the island's prettiest spots for dropping anchor and having a swim is the tiny bay that hosts a little stone shrine to St Arsenios, just south of Agni Bay. If you search, you'll find a sea-level cave there.
It's a shimmering chamber accessed by a corridor in the rock, with a separate underwater exit for the adventurous. Climb up to the shrine, too, for a look.
Water parks for children
Corfu has several fantastic waterparks, including the mighty Aqualand near Corfu Town (two-day tickets cost £20 for children, £28 for adults, aqualand-corfu.com).
A jewel of a town
Too many people leave this isle without ever discovering Corfu Town. This jewel is a unique blend of cultures, which pay testament to the nations that have controlled it during its multifarious history.
Where else in Europe can you find a British cricket pitch, in front of a French colonnade of cafes, which gives way to crumbling Italian architecture?
Climb to the top of the Old Fort and enjoy the magnificent view over the town's ramshackle rooftops. Afterwards, visit the blackened remains of St Spyridon, Corfu's patron saint, in the church that bears his name.
But the best thing to do in Corfu Town is simply to explore the endless narrow winding streets, housing lovely little bars and shops.
Dine out in style
The finest restaurant in Corfu is the recently re-opened Venetian Well in Corfu Town, hidden among the back streets. It's pricier than most places, but worth the stretch.
And don't miss...
Try to visit Angelokastro, a Byzantine derelict castle on the west coast near Paleokastritsa.
Scan the sea below for rocks in the shape of ships; legend has it that the sea-god Poseidon punished the locals for helping his enemy Odysseus by petrifying one of their vessels.
