Got to see this! But no way would you get me up into it! It does form an impressive backdrop to the fountain. And its adjacent tot he Dubai Mall, the biggest so not to be missed.

If you're in Dubai you gotta go to the top of the Burj, right? Skipping it is like going to Orlando and forgetting to check out Disney. The views from "At the Top" are extraordinary. Not for those afraid of heights!

This trip is more than just the view, which is spectacular, as they've made a big effort with information about the team that constructed it, challenges they have, how they clean the windows, what the building means to them, etc.

I must admit, I found the whole At the Top experience completely underwhelming. Firstly it is nowhere near the top, so it is completely mis-named. It was crowded, noisy and full of pretentious people taking 'selfies' or posed faux-glamour shots. I also thought the views were nothing special. Look, having said that, my wife loved it and listening to others,... More

Couldn't see Palm Island or burj al-Arab when there as I think it's too high. Had better view from 52nd floor at the Marriott Harbour hotel. That said I wouldn't leave Dubai without doing it!

Fantastic views from the top of this amazing building. Great experience. All visitors should do this. Book your tickets online as it can be cheaper and it often can get booked up on the day you arrive.

Very beautifully done & maintained! Great view! Wish it could've been from beyond the 122nd floor tho! But overall, worth the visit! Loved the souveineers too!

It's the tallest building in the world and it's a sight to behold. So many of the stats beggar belief and as such, it's a must-see. I paid for the 'At the Top' ticket which whisks you up to the 124th floor in double quick time. As expected, the views are incredible - and there's even an open air viewing... More
