Your usual highly efficient and friendly service.
Hotel lovely, went out for food a lot as same every night. Flights was delayed 1 and a half hours going out and 4 hours on return which was frustrating
All turned out exactly as planned - taxis turned up, hotel lovely, food excellent - and the support each time I rang beforehand much appreciated. I've already been recommending you!
Great staff and service - couldn’t have asked for more
Everything - flights, transfers, hotel worked out very well. We would go to the Ixian Grand again as overall it was a very pleasant experience. However the hotel seems to have cornered the market in low seats. We dined outside most of the time there as the dining seats in the indoor restaurant were clearly nicked from a primary school.
As usual , Sadie was terrific and everything went as planned and hoped.
Everything went seamlessly. We had a marvellous holiday. EasyJet is a very good carrier and look after their customers. Knowing that DialAFlight have your back should it be needed is reassurance when travelling
Always excellent especially Nadia
Libby and Raphael were great throughout the booking process and when we needed to change the destination they were very helpful and accommodating. When we arrived everything was smooth from transfers to checking in.
I love the people at DialAFlight - there is no way I'm going anywhere elsewhere. I tell everyone and hope they can help them. Thank you Ewan and everyone that works there.
Thanks Adam for the excellent service as always
Ivor was so helpful during entire process.
Very good indeed - helpful and very professional
Christian was extremely helpful and made organising our trip very stress free
Everything was absolutely brilliant. Would highly recommend and will definitely go back to DialAFlight for our next holiday
Very knowledgeable and very personable staff. Top marks all round.
Fantastic service with an in depth knowledge of all things travel and superb prices. I will definitely book through DialAFlight again.
Spencer is a great agent and I recommend him regularly
Once again, first class service from DialAFlight. Kylie expertly guided us through all the bureaucratic red tape now surrounding foreign travel, which meant that our holiday was hassle-free.
Yet another fabulous trip planned by Stafford. All hotels were excellent and everything ran like clockwork. Stafford’s suggestion of spending 2 nights per hotel at different points around the island was inspired. It allowed us to see and experience much more than if we had stayed at a single location.
All worked out great. Every confidence in Jane, Sadie and the whole team. Big point of difference is that the phone is answered almost immediately by a knowledgeable and friendly travel advisor who is competent to book a bespoke travel itinerary. Will definitely use DialAFlight again.
All was very good until the last day when I was collected from the hotel, to go to the airport, at least an hour too early.
Excellent service, as always.
We would not go to this hotel again. It was excellent except very poor labelling of vegetarian food and a la carte restaurant had no acceptable offering. It didn’t bother us but some of your clients might not like that it was very close to airport runway
Gavin has organised our trips for a long time now. We have had excellent service even throughout all the recent upheaval
Tammy is very professional, knowledgeable and went out of her way to make sure our holiday was what we wanted.
Your arrangements were, as usual excellent. May I suggest you do not book guests into the K Boutique hotel in Rhodes - it is billed as 4/5 star and we would find it hard to give it 2.
As long as l can get my boarding passes in the post I will use DialAFlight. Thanks to the staff for being so helpful especially Nadia.
Incredible service and I'm so grateful!
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.
