The last BA flight to leave Miami for the foreseeable future! You did your part but we felt BA could have done very much better in respect of the alcohol and food service (or lack of) on a club class flight
Doug was excellent as always
Very happy with the service. Many thanks to Kelly who made me feel at ease. In future all my travel will be booked through DialAFlight.
Reid and his team are marvellous
Teddy is a star. We had many difficulties whilst in US for a cruise/trip. These were dealt with calmly and sensibly.
As always, I received a top class service. Special thanks for keeping in touch with me via phone and email to keep me updated about the airline’s policy regarding the COVID19 situation. Keep up the good work and I look forward to use your services again.
Our agent, Bradley is the best. Friendly, professional, reliable, confident.
As ever DialAFlight were professional, caring and we were so grateful to them for getting us home immediately the USA announced a flight ban
Well done, you got me home
Thanks to Alastair for arranging a return flight from Miami on the same day
Planning holiday and availability to answer queries before leaving led to an excellent experience and a great holiday
If entering Suriname from Guyana or elsewhere in South America it is ESSENTIAL that you have a yellow fever certificate and a visa on you or you will be denied boarding. One of our group had to be vaccinated again in Georgetown and make his way overland to Pararamibo. He arrived just in time for the flight home and missed the entire Suriname section of the trtip.
Excellent service, excellent support. Will definitely use you again and will refer you to others
As usual, everything you said would happen did happen. Excellent price and we will be using your service again! Hotel you booked in Miami (Quality Inns & Suites ) was also very good.
As good as ever
Always use DAF, fantastic service, always recommending you to friends and colleagues. In fact quite a few use you now.
Very good customer service.
Have used you for past three years and you are super efficient. Long may it continue in this excellent way.
Other than being a Yankees fan Reece did his usual marvellous job
The timely call and reminder about the ESTA from Clyde was a lifesaver.
I recommended Jordan at DialAFlight to a friend last year, your 24 hour service was excellent at helping her to return from Nicaragua for a medical emergency - thank you again
Always a great service
Thank you for the lounge passes - they made such a difference to our experience
We really appreciated Devon's help with our trip.
Great service, very customer focused, constant updates, checking we had everything ready to go and even assistance while on holiday when our flights were changed. Look forward to using you again.
Everything worked out just as planned
Attention to detail and excellent service that I have come to expect from Vernon and his team.
Lovely staff, very helpful and polite
Everything went as planned and the hotel booked was excellent
Very good service, couldn’t fault the staff. Will definitely use again
I remember the first time I went to Miami Beach. It was to film an American version of Trigger Happy TV and I was not really looking forward to it.
I thought it would be a combination of Miami Vice flashiness coupled with theme parks. How wrong I was.
The moment I got out of my cab in South Beach, I was hooked. The heady mix of wonderful weather, glorious Art Deco buildings and a blend of American optimism and Cuban joie de vivre made the place crackle with excitement.
I stayed at The Tides on Ocean Drive and just down from the glitzy hacienda where Gianni Versace lived and died. South Beach was on a resurgence, having almost nosedived into a no-go zone in the 1980s.
One of the opening scenes in the movie Scarface shows a drug deal go terribly wrong by way of a chainsaw, and the dilapidated street this happens on is Ocean Drive.
Then the fashion and music industries started to use it as a location because it was cheap and looked amazing. Everyone else followed.
I'd sit on the terrace of The Tides and watch the glamour pass by. One morning I was joined, at neighbouring tables, first by Mike Tyson and an entourage of eight, followed by the rapper Ja Rule and his pet lion. SOBE, as South Beach is known, had truly arrived.
I hadn't been back for a while and wanted to introduce my family to it. I hoped they'd love it as much as I did.
I opted for an old favourite hotel called The Albion. I'd stayed there while filming another show and it is ideally placed at the top of Lincoln Road Mall, the pedestrianised street that cuts through South Beach and is packed with stores, restaurants and bars.
The Albion has a fabulous bar, Repour, and a pool that is a refuge from the bustle of the city.
We normally breakfasted at News cafe, an Ocean Drive institution where you get some of the best people-watching in the world. Then we'd head off for the day's activity.
One day we visited the Wynwood Walls, a must-see in Miami. Another formerly dilapidated area, it has been transformed by street artists from around the world invited to use the neighbourhood as their canvas. It is now fast becoming gentrified and is packed with hipster stores and cafes along with the extraordinary art.
Cycling is the best way around South Beach. We rented bikes for a couple of days and zoomed around soaking up the street life and never, ever seemed to have to go uphill.
Having reached the southern tip of Miami Beach and wandered out to the end of the pier to get a fabulous boat's-eye view, we would often lunch at Monty's, a relaxed place on the Miami side of the island that's great for sunsets and cocktails.
Or we'd hop in a cab and head to Coral Gables. This ridiculously wealthy community has a little jewel in its crown - The Venetian Pool. It's an oasis, a public swimming pool made from a former coral quarry in the 1920s - the most beautiful swimming pool I've ever been to.
Then it was back to SOBE, gawping at the fabulous seaside properties on Star Island.
Come the evening, we'd normally wander down Lincoln Road Mall to one of our favourite places - Rosinella, an authentic Italian trattoria where we could sit outside and watch the world go by.
For a treat, we'd head south to Jo's Stone Crabs, a SOBE institution. You can't reserve a table so you put your name on a list and then sit down for a drink to wait your turn.
The food is extraordinary. Huge stone crab claws dipped in mustard sauce, wonderful aged steaks that melt in your mouth.
SOBE is the place to be - take it from me. As my daughter Parker put it, it puts you in a 'Sunshine State Of Mind'.
