All good - Loews Hotel was very nice with good location. Cruise was fab particularly suite benefits.
I will be booking again soon
Another smooth faultless trip put together by Lee and team, thanks again.
Heathrow needs to look at wheelchair assistance as it takes too long from plane to transport
Thanks - best price by far
Excellent support from Finn and his colleagues.
My agent was fantastic from start to finish - even whilst away when I had a concern.
Excellent personal service from Danny
Tara did an amazing job - booking a great holiday for our family as usual
Once again a very good service from Carla. Much appreciated
Thank you to Joseph for making everything easy for us to deal with.
Should try to overcome the airline booking restriction to enable large groups of 10 or more to be grouped together on flight. I was told that the bookings were linked but that did not show up at check in and we did not get seats together as expected.
Colleagues offered great customer service by chasing up queries and calling back when stated.
There wasn’t enough time between connecting flights - we only just made them!
Nick has been really helpful throughout
Very helpful, will recommend to friends
Please don’t recommend flying into Charlotte to clear immigration when you have a connecting flight. The airport is a shambles with regard to immigration and nearly all of our flight missed their connections.
Welcomed all the calls and updates from the team along the way. Excellent service
I have been using Raymond for a number of years and he never fails. I have recommended countless people over the years
Lee and his team are excellent. Nothing is ever a problem.
Another fantastic holiday arranged by DialAFlight
Being able to speak to an actual person within a couple of rings is so refreshing these days.
Excellent service as always - we were very pleased with everything.
Great support for any traveller
Nicky and her team are always extremely helpful and attentive
Thank you for organising our holiday - nothing seemed to much trouble.
Brilliant service from a fantastic travel manager
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'.
