Combine bird’s-eye views of Dubai from the spectacular Burj Khalifa with an indulgent open buffet lunch at the Burj Al-Arab hotel on this enjoyable 5-hour tour. Snap photos of Dubai Marina and the sail-shaped Burj Al-Arab hotel, and then dig into a scrumptious lunch. Next, zoom up to the ‘At the Top’ observation deck of the Burj Khalifa, the world’s highest building. Feel your heart skip a beat at the phenomenal views and then watch a dazzling Dubai Fountain show. Dubai never looked so good!
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 open buffet lunch at Al Iwan , house water , soft drinks and signature drink of ice tea. 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.
