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

Leave your central Dubai hotel by air-conditioned coach with your guide, who doubles as your driver.

Then, enjoy the views as you travel to the Burj Al-Arab, the sail-shaped hotel situated just off the coast at Jumeirah.
Marvel at the distinctive, sail-shaped design of the 1,053-foot-high (321 meter) hotel, and go inside for a scrumptious afternoon tea. 

Settle inside the Sahn Eddar restaurant-lounge in the Burj Al-Arab’s magnificent atrium, and enjoy a sweet and savory selection of dainty sandwiches, pastries and scones accompanied by tea or coffee.

Admire the plush, softly lit surroundings and soak up the views from the floor-to-ceiling windows.
After your Burj Al-Arab tea, continue by coach to Dubai Marina to admire Jumeirah’s skyscrapers, and pass the high-rises of Sheikh Zayed Road as you drive to Burj al Khalifa, the world’s highest building. 

Gaze upward to view the needle-shaped tip of the tower, and with your guide, ride the high-speed elevator to ‘At the Top’, the observation level on the 124th floor.

Drink in the heart-pounding views through the vast windows, and walk the full perimeter of the deck to ogle landmarks such as the Palm Jumeirah from every direction.

After enjoying the views, return to ground level and stroll to the neighboring Burj Khalifa Lake in time for a Dubai Fountain show. 

Marvel at the cascades and jets dancing in time to classical and Arabian music, and take snaps as the choreographed fountains light up in a dazzling rainbow of colors. 

Your tour ends here when your guide departs. If you wish, continue your evening independently in or around Dubai Mall with restaurant and shopping tips from your guide, or make your own way back to your hotel.

So well organised - from the pick up at the hotel to afternoon tea at the Burj Al Arab to Burj Kalifa At the Top and to finish the fountain show. What a spectacular day with an excellent tour guide.

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

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

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
