Michelle and her colleagues provided an excellent service..
You always come up with what we want and the flights you found for Thessaloniki were so much cheaper than those for others on our trip
Eric arranged yet another fantastic holiday! Great service as always
Great flights and a lovely hotel. Very well organised and we had a wonderful time. Another super trip from DialAFlight!
Good hotel but very difficult to book a table in the restaurant
Happy to hear from you before we travelled and kept us updated in case of any delays.
Thank you again Guy. What a fantastic trip! Your recommendations were spot on. We can't wait for our next trip
Thanks again to Simon and the team. Fab holiday as always

Everything was perfect - as always. Thank you to Alex and team.
As per usual - excellent
Another great holiday organised by Stacey at DialAFlight. Outstanding hotel and everything went smoothly.
Fabulous hotel. Superb service. Would have been nice to say the same about BA in Palma airport
We finally got to Porto after three attempts thanks to Covid. What a wonderful city and excellent hotel. Transfer to and from airports were on time and again excellent. Thank you Michael, Ben and all others for all the help and assistance. Once again the holiday was wonderful and we would never use anyone else.
Kennedy was top notch, very helpful, informative and chatty throughout the whole booking!
Small problem as I gave the wrong mobile number, but expertly quickly resolved by Simon and the team. Excellent service as usual, and looking forward to our next trip organised by DialAFlight in a couple of months
We had an amazing time - all went to plan.
Kennedy is absolutely fantastic. She answers enquiries quickly and efficiently. She takes the time to understand what it is you want and then goes above and beyond to make sure that she fulfils those wishes. Superb!
A well organised trip. Flights were perfect
Well done - all went very well
Thank you for all your help and patience. Trip went well with no problems.
Excellent as always
Saved the day by booking us Club Class on the ferry Pozzallo to Valletta, 21.00 hrs arrival. First foot passengers off and only two taxis waiting. Much relief at getting speedily onwards to hotel.
Howard and Russell were great as usual. Anyone we speak to is always so helpful.
Another excellent deal booked via Zoe. Everything was brilliant and we will definitely be booking through DialAFlight again in the future.
As ever, a fabulous trip with fantastic hotels. Flights and transfers were seamless … and with cancellations due to weather we didn’t have to worry as DAF were already on it and contacted us with amended arrangements. Perfect - thank you.
First class service and a holiday to remember.
The Portuguese have a specific word to describe a nostalgic longing for a place, 'saudade', and after visiting Lisbon it’s easy to see why.
It's conveniently close to the UK, it's in the same time zone - and is a hotbed of cutting edge culture and nightlife, exciting architecture, music events and super cuisine including a thriving pop-up restaurant scene.
Music festivals, headed by Nos Alive in July, rival Glastonbury and Reading.
At Nos Alive, one arena is dedicated to Fado, the melancholy music that originated in Lisbon in the 1820s and is making a big comeback. The festival shows how high Lisbon sits on the 'cool' scale, with a huge buzz in the city’s arts and design sectors.
Lisbon has helped fund many free music and arts events in troubled neighbourhoods to bring investment to the areas and the city is reaping the rewards.
A prime example of the success of this policy is an inner-city area called Mouraria, which used to be the old red light district but is now one of the city's trendiest locations and a magnet for visitors.
It has some of the most beautiful tiled buildings in Lisbon and is one of the top foodie hangouts.
WHERE TO GO
For global cuisine, head to the food market in Martim Moniz Square, or ask the advice of locals about many of the little-known restaurants - some in seemingly private kitchens.
There are also plenty of pop-up events run by Elisa Sartor and Valentina Toscano of Mani In Pasta, who also introduced us to the famous Portuguese custard tart.
The original tarts can be found at the Pastéis de Belém in the Belém area, but for an equally delicious treat in a more central location, try the Confeitaria Nacional shop at Praça da Figueira, which was built in 1829 and still contains its original interior. The pastries are a breakfast delicacy - copy the locals by sprinkling the tart with cinnamon or icing sugar.
From Praça da Figueira, a short Metro ride takes you to a jewel in the Lisbon crown - the indoor Time Out Food Market, which houses artisan food and drink stalls run by some of the biggest bars and restaurants in the city.
Visitors can choose from a number of culinary delights, including steak, sushi, dim sum, local cheese and charcuterie. I opted for a salmon, cuttlefish, tomato and seaweed burger in a cuttlefish ink bun that was absolutely delicious.
There are plenty of places for a more upmarket meal too, including the Bica Do Sapato restaurant, co-owned by Holly-wood A-Listers Catherine Deneuve and John Malkovich, and the hotel Tivoli, which features the Brasserie Flo, a grand 1920s-style dining room serving French food.
I indulged in some local oysters, followed by the most delectable prawn and asparagus risotto I have ever eaten and a salted cod with chorizo crumble.
Upstairs at the Terraço restaurant, diners get one of the best views of Lisbon. Later, we enjoyed a drink at the Sky Bar, a terrace with panoramic views.
Thanks to its hilly nature, Lisbon is famous for its terraces and visitors are spoilt for choice when it comes to verandas with a view that serve food.
People looking for a more modern and relaxed vibe should head to the Memmo Alfama though, a boutique hotel in the Alfama area that is built into the medieval walls of the city. Just a stone’s throw from the hotel is the Clube do Fado in Alfama, widely considered to be the best bar to hear Fado music.
The quaint streets of the historic Barrio Alto area come alive at night, with traditional and modern restaurants, Fado houses and lively bars staying open well into the night.
Lisbon is well-known for its extremely photogenic tiled facades. In some neighbourhoods almost every home is covered in the ceramics, splashing entire streets with rainbow colours.
Nowhere is this more evident than at Pestana Palace, a five-star hotel in a restored 19th century palace with views over the Tagus. The grand reception rooms boast fresco ceilings and decorative furniture.
On top of all this there are beaches less than an hour away from the centre and guaranteed good weather – the city with everything.
