Annabelle is nothing short of brillaint, many thanks to her and the wider team in Manchester.
Everything went as planned.
Excellent and efficient service as always.
This is the 3rd time booking with Lily and her team. Everything is so straight forward we got everything we asked for, thank you so much.
Michelle is a real credit to the team and we’re so glad she’s back to work. Thanks.
Carla was helpful as usual.
Wonderful service. Would certainly use DialAFlight next time I fly.
Excellent service again, thank you
It must be said that the service received from DialAFlight was absolutely marvellous. Having sat on our outgoing flight BA2169 to FLL for over three hours going nowhere to be told that it would be cancelled I simply phoned Mason and before we got back to our hotel in Gatwick he had booked us a flight to MIA from LHR the following morning. Splendid and very well done.
As ever Roy did a first class job and everything went as expected. Just one minor hicup, when returning the hire car to Hertz we had to go to customer care because they had closed out our hire a day too early - no fault of yours I might add
Ben gave the best advice. Pricing was fab. No complaints
The travel managers are totally efficient and knowledgeable, friendly and professional.
I appreciate the follow up - not everyone does this!
Everything went well. Miami was great and glad we extended between flights at Atlanta. Hotel great, cruise was fabulous then flight from Miami to JFK with Delta delayed so had to sprint to get Virgin flight from JFK Next time will not use Delta as they were rubbish. Leo was a great help with the booking.
Tristan has delivered the high standard that I always get from him..
Great service from a customer of advanced age.Thank you Bradley
Jacob and the team did an excellent job with all the bookings (cruise and flight) and followed up closer to the day to make sure we had everything we needed.
Jacob was brilliant as always. He managed my recent trip with about 75 of my friends seamlessly. His customer service is first class.
All organisation went smoothly
Jacob was awesome
Wonderful service and help whenever required. Dominic was excellent
Perfect as usual
Booking with you through Ralph is a pleasure. It is wonderful to have a named person to deal with who is approachable and professional.
Rocky has always been good to me
I would not recommend Alamo car rental at port Everglades. Not equipped to cope with the demands of a busy port
Niall has totally delivered on this holiday. Will keep coming back and keep on recommending him to friends. Great job, great holiday, great service
A pleasure working with y’all
Joe and his team were great as usual
Thank you Robbie, for putting an amazing flight and hotel together for so many guests. We were extremely happy.
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'.
