Trip went great thanks to Vinnie for his excellent service again.
Colin and his colleagues went over and above to ensure I got onto the flight I needed, renewing my booking whilst I needed time securing insurance cover , and steering me in the right direction to find insurers I could use
Lloyd and his team are always helpful and reliable
Everyone in the team was really helpful.
As usual, top quality service from selection of best option through to personal attention to ensure all arrangements are in place.
Excellent service from Matt. Thank you
Jeff is incredibly helpful and efficient!
Really happy with the service from start to the end. Thanks to all for making this so easy for me - a happy customer.
Very helpful, great to have point of contact in uncertain times
Joey and his team were very professional and kept in contact regularly throughout our booking process. The team was even courteous enough to walk us through all the intricacies of flying during the pandemic.
Easy and excellent booking from Noah. I would recommend him to friends and colleagues
Jenson, as ever, has been highly efficient and so helpful in enabling this trip to happen at all during these uncertain times. He's kept us informed along the way and we're very grateful. We will certainly come back, as we have done over the past 10 yrs of booking through him, and have always been nothing less than confident in what he's offered knowing that his options are well chosen and we're always given nothing less than a great service.
Amazing service. Kept me informed as flights kept being changed by the airline. Great personal service.
Watch out for airline seats that seem the same size as others but are actually smaller and awkwardly placed. The seat I ended up in was off centre.
A huge thank you to Jessica and Howard. We had a wonderful trip. Planned well in advance we had to go to them a few times for adjustments and they were helpful with advice on bookings with reimbursement due to Covid uncertainties. The flights all worked, the rental car arrangement too and being able to make the reservations with a deposit and pay balance closer was also a benefit.
Gave me all the time and attention I needed. Thank you
Niall is brilliant: incredibly friendly, efficient, and professional. He also saved me lots of money. I can’t rate him highly enough.
Zac did a fabulous job putting multiple international flights and rental cars together. Super job, as he always does
Staff are always polite, friendly and helpful
Anthony is always so helpful
I had a one hour transfer at Heathrow which my agent changed to a six hour so I didn't miss it but I got there in time for the 1 hr and having to wait in the airport was uncomfortable.
Generally very good, no issues other than flight delays with Delta
Incredibly helpful as always
You are the ONLY travel agent I would trust! You are terrific and do the best possible for your customers. I have recommended you at least 3 times since my trip.
Fantastic company, staff very helpful and you get a personal experience. Would fully recommend. Had to change flights a few times for my son, they did this with ease and the experience has been a positive one.
You were amazing during a very sad and stressful time. You were able to make all the necessary changes to my trip to allow me to spend my dad's last days in hospice with him. I will be forever grateful.
Raj helped take the stress out of planning my trip.
Once again, excellent service from Gareth and his team.
DialAFlight does what it says! The staff are very helpful and I would definitely use and recommend them to my friends and colleagues
Amy was the most helpful and accommodating travel agent I have ever dealt with. Due to both personal circumstances and the impact of COVID-19 the travel dates had to be changed numerous times and Amy immediately produced solutions on every occasion. I will definitely use DialAFlight in the future and have no hesitation in recommending to others.
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'.
