Initial problem with the hotel but then you arranged an upgrade that was very nice.
Everything was perfect. Thank you
Great trip, great resort, would definitely go back again. Staff were super friendly, and really liked the main buffet restaurant. The resort grounds were simply stunning and the beach was right next to it. The highlight of the holiday was the privately arranged (on the site) "12 Islands" boat trip - brilliant island hopping and swimming experience.
Ted remains brilliant. The rest of the team give great back-up if he's not there.
Excellent, friendly, helpful, reliable, what else can I say?
Not your problem but I failed to complete PLF SO WAS REFUSED TO BOARD. Had to find ref number to complete and rebooked BA flight. Would be better if you help clients with docs.
As always, Tristan delivered
Gavin - thank you for all your help in organising our holiday.
Thanks again for excellent service and support
Wayne is absolutely amazing, we would never go anywhere else!
We had to get a minibus to get to our car hire which was unexpected. I can see that it was on the confirmation documents but I think that when you book a car it should be made very clear. Otherwise all very good.
Thanks Joe. Everything went swimmingly.
The airline staff need to police the wearing of face masks on board more.
Excellent support, booking efficiency and follow up
Harrison Miller was particularly helpful in organising our trip
DialAFlight 100 per cent. BA Club Europe only 1 per cent
Great service all along as always
Excellent trip - all went like clockwork - even the covid issues
Always a first class service. Thank you Alex Gache for sorting out another trip very smoothly indeed
Joe went beyond his remit to sort out all my problems with PLF and flight changes.
Many thanks for additional email with links to necessary websites and government information. Much appreciated as it made life simpler and efficient
Thanks, as usual, to Lee Coughtrey for arranging everything so easily, good information before travel and always there to answer any queries.
Going abroad is not simple for elderly folk like me with little aptitude for computers and advice and assistance such as yours is invaluable. We'll be back to bother you again in the Spring!
Wonderful efficient service as usual, thank you
Great service from Wayne once again. Jet 2 airline info at fault and not impressed with their service
Excellent support from Grant Pattinson, who dealt with everything
Flights and hotel all worked well. One minor criticism - the transfer was in a very old taxi. It would have been better to take one off the airport rank.
Excellent customer service
Great service from Eric, as always.
Awish to return is the best compliment a tourist can offer. Asking friends about Malta, I discovered they'd all become regular visitors to this beautiful and heroic island perched south of Sicily at the centre of the ancient trade routes of the Mediterranean.
One of the island's fondest fans is a former pilot who first arrived there during the Second World War, when Malta - an essential British naval base and under constant attack - won the George Cross for bravery. Chums joke he's still looking for the leg he lost in Valletta's Grand Harbour. He just says he loves the place. So does Meghan Markle, who came here in 2015 to check out her Maltese ancestry and found herself wanting to stay.
A three-hour flight from the UK, Malta features year-round sunshine, delicious food (like Meghan, I loved the rabbit stews and fresh fish) and an amazing history. People first arrived in Malta around 5,200 BC and formed farming and fishing communities. The island’s temple period started around 3,600 BC, a thousand years before the first pyramid was built.
UP FROM THE ASHES
Bombed to smithereens during the Second World War, the capital Valletta has finally been restored to picture perfect glory, ready for its reign as this year's European City of Culture.
Elegant old townhouses have been converted into boutique hotels. We stayed at Ursulino, where a roof terrace offers views across the enormous harbour to the ancient city of Birgu.
Ferried over in a gondola at dusk on our first evening, we joined crowds exploring Birgu's narrow streets by candlelight. All electricity is turned off for this one night in the October Festival when house-owners open their doors, musicians rove the streets and actors stage impromptu plays.
It was like stepping back in time to when the Knights of St John took refuge here. Exiled from Rhodes, Birgu was where they first built their lavish palaces during the three centuries they governed the island, defending it from naval attack by the Turks in the Great Siege of 1565, a battle you can safely relive on-screen as part of the well-designed Malta Experience.
There's no escaping Malta's heroic past. Every day, cannons fire a salute across the harbour to honour the Knights. One of the world's biggest and most comprehensive armouries, spreading out along a vast corridor of the Grandmaster's Palace in Valletta, displays an awe-inspiring array of weapons from that famous siege.
Any visit to Malta should include a trip to the ancient city of Mdina, the backdrop to movies such as Gladiator and Troy, and TV's Game Of Thrones. Visiting film stars love to wallow in the laid-back luxury of Mdina's sumptuous Xara Palace Hotel.
WHERE TO GO
It’s worth taking time to enjoy the lovely views over the Mediterranean from the towering Dingli Cliffs. The little fishing harbour of Marsaxlokk - be thankful all the islanders speak flawless English - boasts a cheerful outdoor market where you can buy lace, silver earrings, salted capers and even a fresh tuna head, neatly severed for you by a fisherman's wife.
The side trips add colour and fun. But Valletta is where you'll want to idle time away, strolling down café-filled streets while you discover more about Malta's amazing past.
DINING AL FRESCO
Restaurants played a large role in our five-day visit. My favourites were the outdoor cafe-style eating places centred around one of the two main streets that run the entire hilly length of Valletta.
There was plenty of time to sit and watch the world go by, including the unforgettable spectacle of four Segway-mounted policemen coolly rolling past as the advance guard for their president's black Daimler.
If you want to be sure of a welcome abroad, look no further. The George Cross symbolises a friendship with Britain that thrives as much today as it did during the Second World War.
