Super service throughout, with the usual attention to detail. Thank you once again Gavin. Your service level makes me feel more like a friend than a client/customer.
Well done again, Taylor
Thanks Glen - excellent as always
Used DialAFlight many times and Des Wing is always helpful and knowledgeable. Will use again.
A special thank you to Darryll
Darryll has been my contact at DialAFlight for years now and has always been excellent with our travel requirements and finds us the best deals. Would highly recommend!
Very well organised as ever - great customer support
Very good, very helpful, brilliant!
Everything went to plan perfectly
Ralph was very helpful along the way, answered all questions. The only thing that was a problem was the airline changed our flights from Gatwick to Heathrow causing extra money for taxi
We had a fantastic trip and all our arrangements went to plan. Great communications from Connie
Great service as always, many thanks.
As always, Joe knocked it out of the park and we were delighted with all the travel / accommodation he had arranged - everything worked perfectly and nothing to distract us from enjoying our holiday. I would absolutely recommend using Joe and DialAFlight for your travel arrangements.
Original flight was cancelled but the 24 hr helpline arranged new flights for us immediately. Arrived later than expected but better than not at all.
Perfect service as always, thanks for making it all such a friendly and straightforward experience!
Excellent service as always and looking forward to our booking for 2024
Great communication and such a bargain price for the flights. Excellent
Brilliant advice and service from Julie as usual!
Matthew Price is a legend in travel.
As always brilliant service from Declan and DialAFlight
The personal touch from Robert makes for confidence when looking to book flights
Everything went according to plan. Thank you.
I have used them for years. Nicky always looks after us. Good company
Just to let you know that Jet Blue has declined slightly since they started transatlantic flights earlier in the year, but still efficient, well priced flights. Everything punctual!
Excellent service and friendly advisers.
Thanks for another successful trip.
Excellent follow up and service provided by Ewan and Lee.
Excellent service. Definitely recommend and will use again
How refreshing it is to deal directly with a person at all times. From the initial travel inquiry, the booking itself and finally a call prior to leaving to say if we had any problems while we were away there was a number we could ring for advice. Particular thanks must go to Jerry, whose communication was second to none.
Matt always manages to get me a good deal - a pleasure to work with him
Since it started coming to life as a resort of extreme recreation early last century, Las Vegas has been a place of decadence, excess, and supercharged entertainment.
But it's not all about the dollar-draining casinos, unfathomable heat and oversized frozen cocktails - there's an incredible array of performances, concerts and comedy shows to keep you entertained every single night of the week.
This is all an unbelievably far cry from the town where, just over a century ago, all gambling was banned under strict new laws - even the flipping of a coin among friends to decide who was to pay for a round of drinks.
The name Las Vegas had been given to the area in 1829 by a trading party that was travelling to Los Angeles and stopped for water there - at that time, several parts of the valley contained artesian wells surrounded by extensive green areas. Las Vegas means the meadows in Spanish.
It officially became a city in 1905 when 110 acres of what was to become downtown were auctioned off to ready buyers. By 1931, Nevada state law-makers realised that the city's well-established illegal gambling industry would be more profitable for everyone if it was legalised.
The first gambling licence was issued to the Northern Club, with other venues to follow such as the Las Vegas Club and the Apache Hotel.
The city's first traffic light arrived that year too - and many other lights of the neon type were soon to follow as Las Vegas swiftly rose to be the gaming capital of the world.
Now it's all about shows as much as gambling, and one that's going from strength to strength is The Beatles LOVE by Cirque du Soleil, which has just celebrated ten years at The Mirage Hotel & Casino, during which time it has been seen by eight million people. Even Sir Paul McCartney described it as 'the greatest show in Vegas'.
LOVE is just one of seven Cirque spectaculars taking place across the city. The flagship event - O, at the Bellagio - features high dives, walking on water and the most impressive synchronised swimming and diving outside the Olympics.
If watching big-name pop acts is more your scene, head to Caesars Palace. Sir Elton John, Rod Stewart, Celine Dion and Mariah Carey are just some of those currently sharing headline slots.
The merchandise shop is worth popping into too, even if it's just to marvel at the $11 biros bearing the faces of the performers.
COULD IT BE MAGIC
Vegas has a long history of magic powers - and not just the ability to make huge sums of dollars disappear almost instantly. Siegfried and Roy wowed the crowds in Vegas from 1990 to 2003 before Roy was seriously injured on stage by a 380lb white tiger.
Since then, the wand has been passed on to Penn and Teller - they have been performing at the Rio for more than a decade, while David Copperfield is enjoying a residency at the MGM Grand.
Any Elvis fans planning on making a pilgrimage to his spiritual home this year will be in for a treat. The King may be dead, but long live the King - he's being reincarnated as a hologram to perform 15 shows at a venue yet to be announced.
The company behind the technology, Pulse Evolution, previously created a hologram of Michael Jackson for the 2014 Billboard Awards, which drew gasps of astonishment for its accuracy.
Alternatively, Elvis is available in tribute act form - he has been in the building at the Flamingo for the Legends In Concert, appearing alongside impersonators of Michael Jackson, Tina Turner and country star Garth Brooks.
Only in Vegas, right?
