As usual all went according to plan. Eric has a better idea of my holiday plans than I do myself!
Excellent service - gave us such support at a time when travelling was still set with hurdles. Would definitely use DialAFlight again
Another excellent holiday arranged by Robert Maclean - attention to after sales excellent.
Mathew is fab!
Only surprise was to be bought back to England with Smart Lynx. Was confused by this fat white plane and no sign of orange. Still all was explained and both flights were on time. So no problems there.
There was an initial mix up with our room but we feel that was an error on the hotel's part which they sorted out in the end. Everything else was excellent and we thank Christian Burgess for his customary help and advice
As always great service.
During these very difficult times we felt DialAFlight did a very good job of getting us to Kefalonia. Thank you for your service, and we will see you again
Robert as usual brilliant with after sale care.
Always helpful, changed our bookings through COVID, and kept in touch with any updates
Declan was very helpful on the day
It has been a difficult time for those who work in the travel industry but Sean and the team at DialAFlight are still a great example of how excellent customer service should be carried out.
Absolutely fantastic service
As always excellent and very helpful,
Everything went very smoothly and we enjoyed our week's holiday in Kefalonia. Flight and car hire were great.
Thank you so much (once again!)
Always an efficient service with excellent customer support.
Very good service
Have used DialAFlight several times now . Always sort us out good deal. Have recommended them many times
Excellent, efficient, friendly service as always.
Done it again Conrad! Thank you.

Excellent service as usual.
Very impressed with both the professionalism and friendliness of DialAFlight. Marcus was brilliant. Will definitely use DialAFlight for any and all future flight bookings and will certainly recommend you to friends.
Thanks Oli - you are brilliant.
Champagne wasn't cold enough on the trip out!
The service was excellent. Your Travel Manager Malcolm is highly efficient, helpful, polite and friendly and always very patient. Highly recommend.
All flight documents were dealt with efficiently as we had no access to a printer or smart phone. A big help - and thank you.
Very helpful service, accessible, prompt and knowledgeable.
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.
