Delighted that you managed to avoid any issues with the French Air Traffic Controllers strike, well done.
The hotel Amadeus in Seville was excellent, so convenient for walking to all the main attractions.
Thanks Shaun - another lovely holiday
Brilliant service as usual..
The personal touch, quick phone answering and helpline are very reassuring.
Gavin brilliant as always
Tristan was very helpful and friendly, I would certainly book flights with you again.
I felt almost guilty for my return flight being on time. Snow on Friday 10th March delayed the Birmingham flight by 8 hours and many others similarly!
Could not fault Alfie and his exceptional service
Absolutely 5 star. Thanks Rudi
Always a pleasure to deal with Richard, everything ran smoothly, 5 star service.
Flown with you many times over many years. Thanks once again for a great trip
Alfie sorted out a lovely hotel for me in Puerto de Cruz....it was in a super location. The hotel did not provide any food but the area had loads of bars and cafes. The hotel in Costa Adeje was where I stayed last year and its location is also fantastic and the staff there are really lovely and helpful.
Seamless from booking to landing, couldn't ask for more. Joey Verner is absolutely outstanding - 1st class - advises on and sorts all my queries and bookings in a jiffy, without any fuss
Great customer service. Thank you Jordan
Thanks to Glen who planned my holiday - everything went smoothly as planned
Eric and colleagues were brilliant!
A great trip, nice hotel in excellent position, faultless travel arrangements as usual by our favourite DialAFlight.
Alawys extremly helpful and very good service -have been using DialAFlight for many years
First class service
BA were not on time either out or in - as usual. God knows what you are meant to do if you have a connecting flight when you fly BA! The Club element was poorly managed, almost non existent at Las Palmas - both checking in and boarding.
Love dealing direct with the same voices, year after year, and trip after trip: Nick, Bailey and the team sort out our holidays, rugby trips and short breaks!
Another excellent trip, all very well-organised. Lovely hotel in a great location.
Good communication, great service.
Usual excellent service from a great company..
Everything was perfect. All your staff were very helpful, especially Oliver Orr.
Excellent in every way
First class service from Elizabeth.
Bradley was excellent - very helpful and went through everything
We always appreciate the help of Howard Crafter
The Mediterranean city of Valencia has an astounding cathedral, brilliant beaches, renaissance churches, some of the most striking modern architecture in Europe, fabulous seafood and gutsy red wine.
The locals are intensely proud of their city, culture and language, a form of Catalan called Valencian.
They might not shout about it as loudly as the Barcelonians, but perhaps that's because some might say their city is - whisper it - even better than Barcelona.
Who needs the whorls of Gaudi's Sagrada Familia when you've got the spiralled columns of the city's gothic Silk Exchange? Even paella was invented here.
After the River Turia flooded disastrously in 1957, the government diverted its waters. Now the wide green riverbed snakes through the city, providing 9km of parkland and a home for the Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias, an eruption of futuristic pavilions, lakes, an Imax cinema, aquarium and botanic gardens.
All of this is overlooked by the tallest opera house in the world, Santiago Calatrava's steel and concrete Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia, an ancient Greek helmet-shaped building.
Take a glass of wine on the breeze-cooled palm terrace before the opera or come back on Friday evening when music students from the nearby Berklee College of Music, the first international campus of the Boston-based college, give free concerts from April to October on a floating stage in the lake.
Valencia cathedral and the Micalet bell tower are must-sees, but be sure to look up when you are inside the cathedral.
The windows are filled with inch-thin alabaster instead of glass. This makes for a spectral interior rendered even more eerie by the presence of Francisco Goya's 1788 painting St Francis Borgia At The Deathbed Of An Impenitent, where a figure of Christ on the crucifix spurts blood on to a sinner.
Step into the cathedral's Holy Grail chapel, home to a revered silver chalice which, as it dates to the 1st century AD, might just be the real thing.
You'll find modern art at the Institut Valencia d'Art Modern (El Ivam) and El Greco paintings at the El Patriarca museum.
The city is famous for its ceramics and tiles, a tradition that dates back to the long years of Moorish rule. But you'll also find Picasso's work at The National Museum of Ceramics in Ciutat Vella, housed in a baroque palazzo with the most famous decorated doorway in Spain.
Go to the marvellous antiguedades shop on Corretgeria street, where there are tiles in geometric patterns, or line drawings of doves from the 19th century and earlier.
After taking in the Napoleonic-era shell marks in the ancient masonry of the Ciutat Vella's Porta de Serrans, have a restorative pitcher of Agua de Valencia. The madly baroque Cafe de las Horas, in Comte d'Almodovar street, serves this super-charged drink with cava and spirits. There are also non-alcoholic cocktails. And cake!
Like Barcelona, Valencia has a famous city shoreline, but you'll find fewer people on Malvarrosa Beach, a 15-minute bus or tram ride from the city centre.
Casa Carmela, set back from the Malvarrosa Beach, is the place for paella. Locals favour the rabbit offal, snails and chicken paella cooked on open fire pits.
Take a morning cafe solo in the Estacion Del Norte, one of Europe's best-preserved art nouveau railway stations, and marvel at the ceramic fruits hanging from columns and tile murals.
Just over 100 years old, Estacion Del Norte stands like a north African fort beside the city's brick bullring.
There has been a resurgence in local cuisine, with new takes on staples such as hake and pork.
The Mercat de Colon is a gastronomic destination with restaurants including Habitual, run by Michelin-starred chef Ricard Camarena.
In the Ruzafa quarter, the enthusiastic staff of 2 Estaciones serve tuna with peanuts, muscatel, lime and watermelon - and Valencian wine to make it zing.
