Perfect service by Stan - friendly and helpful
Always excellent service from Kelly
One of the best companies around - staff can't do enough for you
We had a very enjoyable holiday.
We have used DialAFlight for 18 years and enjoyed multiple trips per year. Never an issue, always a hassle free enjoyable time. I know we are safe and all of our bookings are handled expertly. Happy to recommend to anyone.
Excellent flight with very attentive and professional staff along with flavoursome and good food. Would have no hesitation in recommending Emirates business class.
Adam is superb getting us fantastic deals to Dubai and Abu Dhabi. We have recommended him to other friends and they have been equally as impressed by his service
Very good service, would definitely use again.
Matt Power gave us excellent service again. Everything was perfect at Caesar's Palace Resort.
Lucas Moore handles all my business flights and any additional concerns that I may have. Exceptional.
Keep up the good work
Lilly Reeves is incredibly accommodating and I'm so happy with the service.
Good service as always, thanks again
Update and communication from date of booking until 24 hours before departure excellent
Special mention to Cody Phillips who went the extra mile to help us fine tune the holiday especially with accessibility for our autistic son and priority boarding. We really had an amazing time and he helped take so much stress from planning and was able to work out quickly the best options for us as a family
Actually it is one of the best agencies. Special thanks to Finn for his great support and prompt action.
Dale was excellent from booking to keeping in touch throughout. An issue with transfer was sorted swiftly. Would book again with with no hesitation.
A huge thank you to Barney - once again he gave excellent advice and booked an amazing hotel and trip to Dubai. It exceeded expectations and the personal service Barney provides every time is amazing. He is a pleasure to deal with and so patient - a credit to your company
Amy was excellent, she couldn’t have done more to make our holiday one to remember.
Thanks Declan and the entire team for all your efforts and support
Excellent service from Dennis
We can thoroughly recommend DialAFlight. Thinking about a holiday in Dubai we contacted Elliott who efficiently and cheerfully offered us several options and then made the booking for us. We found the DialAFlight website very informative and useful. It gave us all the information we needed regarding what is required when travelling abroad.
Mickey sorted out the holiday of a lifetime for us. The whole experience of DialAFlight was phenomenal. We have already recommended you to other friends and will use you again for our next break.
You just can’t get a better service! It makes your holiday so much easier
Thanks Karl. All good but will not stay at Zabeel Saray again.
Thanks again to Toby for sorting out our flights
Everything worked out great! Thank you. Hotel was amazing .
This is the city where construction never sleeps. Turn your back for a second and another skyscraper miraculously emerges from the sand, shinier and bolder than its neighbour, adding to the architectural fantasia that makes Dubai one of the most extraordinary man-made creations on Earth.
BIGGER & BETTER
Imagine if the entire planet was wiped out, leaving only dust and we had to start again. Most likely, Dubai would be it, complete with a few reminders of the old world - a Big Ben lookalike, a couple of Chrysler buildings, London's cheese grater. They're all here.
Then there's Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest structure, set to lose its crown in 2020 to The Tower in Creek Harbour a few miles away. Competing against itself is a way of life in Dubai.
A shopping mall to make Westfield look titchy? On its way. Another highway linking the financial district to the Marina? Consider it done. A new water park with scary rides? Form a queue. Fancy eating in a Jamie Oliver restaurant one night, a Gary Rhodes the next, then a Jason Atherton and even a Diego Sanchez at Lima? Take a seat.
On the subject of food, no trip to Dubai is complete without sampling the city’s infamous weekend brunch spots. Like Dubai’s skyline, brunch offerings keep getting bigger and better every week with each venue offering their own unique twist on what has become the biggest weekly social events in the Dubai calendar. One of the most popular spots is Bubbalicious at The Westin Dubai which offers incredible spread with free flowing bubbly at AED 680 (approx £145 pp).
The first high rise was built in Dubai in 1979 and it shows no sign of letting up.
Streets are clean, public transport is efficient and crime virtually absent (I like the story of the taxi driver who found a £780,000 gold watch in his cab and handed it in). What's more, sunshine is pretty much guaranteed all year round.
How it all works is the unfathomable question that merely adds to the intrigue.
New players are arriving all the time. The Versace Palace hotel (1.5 million tiles on its mosaic floor) has opened near the airport; the Armani hotel occupies pride of place at the foot of the Burj Khalifa; the futuristic FIVE (spa on the roof, swimming pool practically in the lobby) is on a beach on the Palm Jumeirah, and now our very own Dukes Hotel (founded a century ago in London's St James's) has opened a 500-room branch on the trunk of The Palm.
PLACES TO BE SEEN
St James's to Dubai sounds farcical but it works brilliantly, right down to the martinis in Duke's Bar, the private beach, the hand-picked staff from the likes of Claridge's and Mandarin Oriental, and the first international franchise of Mumbai's famous Khyber restaurant.
Khyber is on the 15th floor just above the 'floating swimming pool' on the skybridge that connects the hotel's twin towers, high above the lavish lobby, where bemused members of the British aristocracy stare out from portraits on the walls.
It's worth hiring a guide and driver for a whistle-stop tour of the city. Ours was a German married to a Mauritian, who, like so many expats, wasn't quite sure how she ended up in a city where it rains only about eight or nine times a year.
She took us to the spice market where we bought stuff we will never use, and to the gold market where we would have liked to have bought lots of stuff.
We took an Abra boat taxi over the creek, had our photograph taken with a Bedouin and popped into the Dubai Museum, which gave us a crash course on the city's history.
Dune-bashing followed by quad biking, camel-riding and a barbecue in the desert - with belly dancers providing the after-dinner entertainment - is almost obligatory.
At one point, we asked if we could take a walk in the red sand and trekked almost a kilometre.
When we turned round, our tracks already had been erased - just as they are in those scary survival movies.
The temperature in the desert reaches 120f in summer - at least it does for now. Presumably, the powers that be will install some form of air-conditioning in the future. Anything seems to be possible here.
