The tower is amazing - you can see that from the outside. Did this in the 2nd last week of July, in the evening. There was a bit of waiting in line to get in ... even with pre-booked tickets for the 8PM time slot. There's no audio on the tower, it's construction, etc - just some boards with information... More

I knew the visibility in Dubai would be poor with all of the sand in the atmosphere so I went in with low expectations. Also I had pre-purchased the ticket online so I didn't pay the earth. The main disappointment was the height of the observation deck. For something called 'at the top' you're closer to halfway than the top.... More

We had booked the Burj for sunset, but by the time we got through security, the long queues and the walk to the lift itself, the sun had already set. Although they limit the amount of people, it was impossible to get a window to myself and there were no chairs around to sit. I wouldn't recommend it to people... More

I was completely underwhelmed. The only GOOD thing I can say is that the price wasn't so high that I felt like an idiot for spending the money on this complete waste of time.

Make sure you prebook tickets as it is bloody expensive there and then to buy a ticket... the views are stunning, the souvenir shop isn't too bad and its got some great binoculars that help you see into the past. Make sure you take a jacket with you as it is freezing up there.

Really enjoyed my time at the top of the Burj Khalifa. You really must take the opportunity when in Dubai to visit the worlds tallest building. At 7.30pm you are treated to a musical fountain display.

Great view from the highest tower of the world to get an overview of Dubai. Book tickets for the morning and see the sun rise and the go for lovely breakfast. Highly recommend it, as its not too hot in the morning and not so many people queue for the elevator.

The actual view when you get to the lookout deck is stunning. Allow plenty of time for your visit as it takes a while to get to the lookout. If you go in the evening it is a great spot to watch the fountain show and they play the music in the lookout area.

We were expecting abit more from this "At the Top" experience especially for the price we had paid for the tickets and making arrangements to be there during sunset hours. Firstly, it is not really high.. we could only go to 124th floor. Could do the same or similar in Singapore (One Altitude or Marina Bay Sands) or in Hong... More

Although you can,t help but be impressed with the construction / technology of the tallest building in the world, was left a bit disappointed and think the At The Top Experience should be re-named as the tower is 828 meters tall, the observation point is at 452 meters, so , while not expecting to be actually taken to the top...
