Eric was absolutely brilliant. He planned our trip for us and everything went perfectly! It was a holiday of a lifetime and it was made special by Eric’s recommendations. Thank you so much! Very happy customers.
Orlando Spragg is great!
The agent was very helpful and informative.
Great job, did what you promised to do in a positive and responsive way. Will continue to use you for any future trips.
It took a great weight off my shoulders arranging our bespoke holiday in California. Bruce was superb and came up with many helpful solutions that resulted in a great holiday.
DialAFlight did everything and more - any question or extra requirement they sorted out straight away. I would not hesitate to use them again or recommend
Great service - particularly when BA went on strike
Tammy was amazing from start to end in making sure our honeymoon was everything we could have imagined
Really helpful, always on end of phone for queries.
Many thanks Lincoln. We had a fabulous holiday, we even got a free upgrade on the car hire, brilliant.
Great service beforehand arranging a complicated trip and whilst we were there when we encountered a couple of problems 24 hour service was impeccable. Highly recommend them
Great communication, first class service
Used DialAFlight many times in recent years and can’t fault them
Excellent, efficient service..again

I have been booking with Jerry for years
Very helpful & knowledgable. Would certainly use DialAFlight again without hesitation. Joe was fantastic & extremely patient, he accommodated all our requirements.
Had a lovely holiday. Thanks to Nicole for booking us in such a lovely location.
Great advice for the flight.
United Airlines were very poor. Three hours delayed going to US and nearly three hours delayed returning.
Danny and the team around him produced an outstanding customer service for my trip
Great hotel recommendations
Great service, friendly staff
Really helpful service from Joel. He responded promptly when contacted and got in touch before our travel to ensure all was OK.
Personal helpful service
Patrick couldn’t have been more helpful when booking our trip. I had been conned by another company with our flights but Patrick did all he could to resolve a horrible situation. After booking he then contacted me as he’d found a cheaper flight option for us. He made everything easy and seemless. He made everything easy and seamless. I would always book with DialAFlight from now on!
As usual, excellent service
Daryl was particularly helpful. Very efficient and professional.
It's not so much that 12-year-old girls know what they want to do when they hit California, it's that they know what they don't want to do - and that includes any form of sightseeing.
This meant planning our month-long road trip was a challenge. I love adventure, my husband Paul loves luxury, and our daughters Phoebe and Dora love access to wi-fi.
Our first stop was San Francisco, where we stayed at the Fairmont - lots of luxury to relax in after the flight. Our three days in the city were busy as we checked things off our must-do list: bike ride over the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito and ferry back via Alcatraz; window-shopping in the arty Mission District and queuing with locals for a wonderful lunch at Tartine.
As we eventually left San Francisco in our monster truck, I directed Paul to the infamous bends of Lombard Street. The girls whooped almost as much as he whinged.
Next stop was Napa Valley, where we had booked the Carneros Inn - which turned out to be one of the finds of the trip. Detached cottages are positioned around an organic farm. Cool restaurants, hilltop swimming pools, and outdoor bar areas with night-time fire pits are the only places where you notice that you are not the only guests.
We dipped in and out of Napa's famous vineyards, before heading 120 miles east to Nevada County and Grass Valley, where in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada you find the richest gold mines in California.
I find California's gold pros-pecting history fascinating, and as we traced the path down Highway 49, I tried to imagine the emotions of those tens of thousands who came to seek their fortune.
My commentary from the passenger seat was sporadically interrupted by Phoebe or Dora demanding that we stop to take photos at stunning vantage points, or capture the signs for improbably named towns such as Rough And Ready.
Our trip to Yosemite National Park was magnificent. Yosemite is definitely at its best when seen in a swimming costume at 7am from the middle of a glacial lake.
Heading west, we spent two days fascinated by the geek chic of the city of Palo Alto, where our girls worshipped at the altars of technology giants such as Apple. But before they got too used to the wi-fi forcefield that surrounded them, it was time to move to the coast.
We took a leisurely drive south to Carmel, where we had magical sunset picnics on the beach and watched whales off Point Lobos. Then it was on through the beautiful, rugged coastline of Big Sur to the El Capitan campsite near Santa Barbara. Paul was chuffed I had taken an executive decision and booked a luxury cabin.
We had a barbecue on our private terrace before witnessing the most magnificent sunset cloak the sky like a night-time rainbow - a truly special moment.
From the moment we turned on to Highway 1 the car was filled with cheers from the back every time we passed a sign counting down the distance to Hollywood. Twelve, it seems, is the age where the magic of the movie industry hits hard. My girls lap up everything Tinseltown. They loved the fact we were hanging out in the same town as Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence, or that any nailbar could be full of Kardashians, or any juice bar packed with Beckhams.
We pandered to them, searching the internet to see where the stars dined, and then booked a table at the same spots.
The anticipation made for fun dinners, and rubbing shoulders with Hollywood royalty such as Di Caprio, Clooney and even a Baldwin led us to compile a list of DVDs we must see upon our return.
We stayed in full glamour at the London hotel in West Hollywood, where a sneaky afternoon cocktail by the rooftop pool became my little luxury. And of course we had to photograph the sign in the hills, visit the Chinese Theatre and sit on the Friends sofa on a Warner Bros tour, before heading back to the coast.
Our last five days were based at the ever-so-cool Viceroy in Santa Monica. There was much to do - trapeze school on Santa Monica Pier, a morning bike ride to Venice Beach, an evening trip to a basketball match and a surf lesson in Malibu.
We had been exactly a month in California - and both girls are determined to return as soon as possible to continue exploring.
