What You Can Expect

Burj Khalifa 'At the Top' Including Afternoon Tea at Burj Al-Arab

Enjoy afternoon tea at the glamorous Burj Al-Arab

Start your experience with a pickup from your centrally located Dubai hotel. Settle into your seat aboard an air-conditioned coach with your guide, who doubles as your driver, and head to the Burj Al-Arab, a glitzy hotel that stands on its own man-made island in the Persian Gulf.

Admire the 1,053-foot-high (321 meter) Dubai showpiece from outside, and then head inside for a delicious afternoon tea. Take a seat in the plush Sahn Eddar restaurant-lounge and savor a selection of finger sandwiches, pastries, and freshly baked scones. Sip on coffee or tea as you look out at panoramic views through the floor-to-ceiling windows.

Next, return to your coach and drive to Dubai Marina to view a cluster of skyscrapers along the shoreline. Then, marvel at more high-rises as you cruise along the multilane Sheikh Zayed Road to the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. Crane your neck to see its syringelike peak puncturing the sky before you and your guide get in a high-speed elevator to ‘At the Top,’ its 124th-floor observation deck. Here, stand wide-eyed at the thrilling views over the city, desert and ocean far below.

Once you have fully appreciated the views, descend back to the ground and walk to Burj Khalifa Lake with your guide to experience the Dubai Fountain show. Watch the dancing waters shoot up some 500 feet (152 meters) in the air to the sounds of classical and Arabic music. The splashy show, illuminated by 6,600 flashing lights and lasers, offers you plenty of photo ops.

Your tour ends at nearby Dubai Mall, where you can enjoy dinner or some shopping on your own. Alternatively, your guide can provide suggestions and directions to other must-see spots around the glamorous city.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

The tour guide was extremely rude. Spoke so fast you could not understand any of the narration he was giving on the area. He was pushy, and cut the tour short by an hour cause of Ramadan saying 'it wasn't worth doing the other sites. Apart from that, the Burj Al-Arab was truly jaw dropping, food was amazing even had gold on the cakes, a beautiful gift was giving to everyone a pen from the staff not the tour guide, The Burj Khalifa gave a great view of how amazing Dubai is. It was awesome, you don't feel that high up. Would recommend hopefully there will be a different tour guide though

An absolute must if travelling to Dubai.
The tour was well organised.
The high tea at the Burj Al-Arab was sooo good. 7 courses, even the muffin/ cup cake had gold leaf on it.
The waiter pouring the sparkling was a consummate artist with flair.
The ladies powder room had Hermes perfume to freshen up.
The top of the Burj Khalifa was amazing including that there was a mild sandstorm. 360 degree view, very impressive.
We went to the Mall and waited for the fountain show,lovely. You do not have to do this as they will return you to your hotel.
A well worth tour

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2015

Fabulous trip - picked up on time - friendly guide with lots of information told in a lighthearted way - had 2 hours at Burg Al-Arab - plenty of time for afternoon tea - then taken to Burj Khalifa for tour - quite a lot of walking so put comfy shoes on - guide found us great view for fountains at 7.30pm - excellent trip. Great to get the two visits in one go as we only had a few days.
