We paid to go to the very top. Worth paying the extra money, no queuing at all. Went to the 125th floor and to the 148th floor. Fantastic views.
I'm glad we did the extra SKY: it was more comfortable and less crowded at that level. You will eventually go down to the regular At the Top level, but receive expedited access to the elevators when you want to leave: a definite plus, as there was quite a line otherwise. We wanted to be up there by sunset, but the usual haze in the winter months makes sunset unimpressive. However, it was nice to see the fountains starting at 6 pm, every 30 min. from above, but everyone else is crowding up to the windows too, so be prepared. It's still best to see them at ground level, which you can do once you leave.
It is absolutely worth the extra money to buy this ticket! You get VIP treatment upon arrival as you are escorted to a private room where they serve Arabian coffee, dates and baklava. When it's time to go up to the top, you are escorted past all of the long lines for the regular ticket holders to the elevators with no wait time. The elevator ride to the top is super cool all by itself. The elevator is completely dark and on the walls is a show telling you what height you are at and where other tall buildings in the world line up as you go. It's also the smoothest and fasted elevator we've ever been on. You go to the 125th floor and then take another elevator up to 148. The views are spectacular all around. We timed it so that we got up there in the daylight and got to see the sunset and the night lights come on across the city. Plus we got to see the dancing fountains from up there as well. This ticket also allows you to skip the lines to get back down. And let me say......it was a LONG line from 124 at that point and I imagine we would have waited for a good hour just to come back down if we didn't have the VIP ticket. Plus you get to go to 148, 147, 125 and 124. Although it's a lot of money for an elevator ride, it's worth it for the experience at the top of the tallest building in the world!
This was given as a gift and was well received. The couple went to the Burj as part of a three week trip to Australia and thought it was a brilliant start to their adventure. Walking past the queues was a massive plus for these tickets and as their time of travel was late afternoon they had 2.5 hrs, watched the sunset and saw Dubia in the dark. Highly enjoyable and recommended.
Great experience ,fantastic views ,we had a 5 pm slot saw Dubai in daylight and then evening light could not ask for better.
With tour you get to enter first and they tell you everything about how Burj Khalifa was made, they also offer you drink and sweets At The Top Sky.
It was quite expensive to do the VIP experience but worth it to go to the top levels - would recommend booking in advance because lots of time slots were booked up and big queues. Great way to view the city from the highest building in the world
This particular tour takes you to an observation lounge located at a higher floor than the regular tour. The view is roughly the same for the two, but the higher level is significantly less crowded, and it is a lounge where you can sit by the windows and have some refreshments while watching the Dubai skyline. The tour hosts are really welcoming and make the tour enjoyable.
Loved every second of it. We booked the sunset around 5:00pm in January but couldn't really see to much because of the weather. But that didn't matter, it was a great view! We had no line and were rushed up to the top after a little reception time.
The trip was more than well worth it! The extremely long lines and waiting that come with the less expensive tickets made paying the extra well worth it. My wife and I went after sunset and the view was amazing. Drinks and dates were delicious. We're from New York City, and we were impressed! The posed pictures were a little pricey, in line with Dubai though. Oh, the ticket also allowed you to bypass the lines leaving!! HUGE!
Impressive views and great experience! 148 level - not crowded, perfect to see everything!
Fantastic experience at 148 stories in the air. We researched and went back and forth on whether to buy the cheaper tickets and only visit the 124th floor and with the main crowd lots of people or buy the more expensive At the top SKY tickets. I have a fear of heights and didn't want to be stuck in a huge crowd both in the elevator and on the 124th floor for the viewing experience.
So we decided the more expensive SKY ticket would be worth it for us. With the SKY ticket you get to wait in a private room and served Arabian coffee and some small treats. There were maybe 20 people waiting with us in the room. Within a few minutes we were taken to a special line where we went through security and started our trek to the elevators. During this walk we stopped a couple of times for our Tour Hostess to explain the design and building of the Burj Khalifa as we watched electronic video of the Burj being built.
Several minutes later we entered our private SKY ticket elevator. I noticed a long line of people waiting for an elevator to take them to the 124th floor ie: standard ticket. The elevators are remarkable! They whisk you up at a rapid pace but yet there is little to none of movement or noise within the elevator itself. The floor numbers were clicking off at about one floor per second. I was amazed and wondered how much these elevators cost!
As we traveled up to the 125th floo,r which is only for the SKY ticket holders, there was a video shown on the walls of the elevator showing more of the process of the building the Burj Khalifa and views from the top. I was getting a little nervous :-
Once we exited into the 148th floor of the Burj Khalifa it was quite breath taking. But I had no fear. It's all glassed in and it is so high it didn't create the panicy feeling I get other times. Servers waited with offerings of tasty treats and cool drinks for us.
Well, the views from this observation deck at this altitude was simply fantastic. And it was not crowded with hundreds of people as I've heard floor 124 is. We spent about 45 minutes or so on the 148th floor and watched the sunset. This is a really special time to be at the SKY observation deck as the sunset is just tremendous!! See the pics I've attached.
As the sun set we then entered our elevator to go down to the 125th floor. We stayed here for 20 minutes or so and bought some keepsakes. Then we took an elevator down to 1st floor and walked the mall a bit.
In summary, for us the SKY entrance tickets were well worth the extra cost. Considering, for most people this is a once in a lifetime experience it is worth it to spend the extra money and have one of the most exciting experiences of your life.
To watch the sun set at the Burj Khalifa book your tour at 4:30 to 5:00. The sun sets appx 6:30 but you'll need that time to get up there and relax with the views before the sun sets.
Amazing tower, amazing view, amazing tour -- it's definitely worth the extra money to skip the queue and get to the 148th floor! Compared to the 125th, where it's pretty difficult to get close to the windows, there was much less crowd and it was easy to take great photos. We were there at peak period, so we could see Dubai from the top both before and after sunset -- the latter is really-really great!

A definite must when in Dubai! It is not cheap during peak hours but we ended up booking the 5PM slot and watching the sun set and the fountains come on at 6 PM.
Fantastic way to see Dubai. We did 8pm tour. Were met and escorted to private lounge and offered local coffee and dates till our tour was ready. By passed the lines and were taken to floor 148. Only 16 of us. Soft drinks and sweets and the best view of Dubai we will ever see. Plenty of time to see from all sides not rushed. We could then go down to 125 but very crowded and we were very happy with what we had seen. Would recommend paying the extra to go to the top!
I thought this was quite an expensive tour when I booked it but my husband and I were very glad we had paid the extra to go to the 'Top' It was an amazing experience, and we were very glad to miss the que which was heading off into the shopping mall.
BEAUTIFUL AND AMAZING,must go straight to the top 148th floor.
Well worth paying the extra money to get to the 148th! Plenty of time at the top to chill out and enjoy the view before descending. This is a must for every visitor to Dubai!!!!
Awesome experience.....go the extra mile and purchase the At The Top Sky ticket to the 148th floor. You will get more than an elevator ride. As you arrive at your designated time slot you will be brought into a room with other guest for the same time slot. There you will be given a cup of Arabic coffee, dates and a synopsis of what to expect. From there you will go to the elevator to the 148th floor. On the 148th floor you will be allowed to stay for 45minutes enjoying the views and take pictures. We found this more than enough time. Then you will descend to the 125th floor to enjoy the views from that level and stay as long as your want. My husband and I had the perfect time slot. We saw the fountain light show below, saw a gorgeous sunset, and saw Dubai come alive below and around us when the lights of the city came on. Also, by purchasing this ticket you will not experience any lines going up the elevator or down from the 125th floor to the ground level. On the 125th floor, don't forget to purchase some postcards, buy stamps, have them postmarked and place the cards in a mail box there at the gift shop.
