“Two hours of breathtaking 360 degree views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Fantastic building, albeit a bit disappointing that "At The Top" only is "2/3 to the top" - but a breathtaking view nonetheless! The queue and waiting time were on the long side (it took nearly an hour to get up) but were worth it.

“Amazing experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Brilliant, well worth a visit.
We bought our tickets via our hotel. The prices for tickets were cheaper through our hotel than from the admission desk.
An amazing building, not to be missed.

“Best view of Dubai”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Be prepared to come early, or book your ticket in advance. We only stayed two days in Dubai, and the normal tickets for that days were sold out. I've bought my tickets from a guy that had to leave early or something. The girl gaurding the lines asked us to put away our rather small backpack, but she apperently was only annoied by our small back pack, as other tourist with large back pack were aloud to take them with them. When I confronted here with this fakt we could take the back pack anyways. You will have to stand in line for 20-30 minutes to get in the elevator and about 30-90 minutes to get your ticket. You can book your tickets in advanced through the internet, that will save you time and garantee you the elevator up for the normal price (100 AED). You can always buy priority tickets for 400 EAD (about €100), but you have to stand in line for those too.

The view when your up is quite okay, the best you will get if you're not willing to go sky diving. But it's rather packet! Go there early in the morning. It's quite dissapointing the there still is about 1/3 of the tower above your head. Would have been nice to go al the ways up. But I can imagen there is no room on top to harbour all the tourist.

It's nice, but not amazing. Go there early if you mind standing in line to look out of the window!
