Top Burj Khalifa At The Top Reviews
"It becomes difficult to describe sometimes, the view from the sky observation deck. You can almost faintly see the curvature of the earth. The presentations are also wonderful and highly insightful." - Johanne, October 2016
"We all know the Burj Khalifa as the tallest building in the world. But it’s only when you actually get to the top that you know how high up you are! It’s truly something that NEEDS to be one your bucketlist!" - James, March 2016
"Absolutely brilliant. It takes a minute to get to the viewing platform in an incredible lift. The views are out of this world looking down on 80 storey tower blocks which look like models. The largest shopping mall in the world is dwarfed by the sheer scale of this building. Go up even if you don’t like heights which I don’t!" - Steve, April 2016
“Extraordinary! This was definitely an experience not to be missed. I would suggest booking online as it was very busy the day we visited and we still had to queue. The lift is extremely quick and the views amazing." - Elaine, Feb 2017
