This is a must for most tourists visiting Dubai. I felt it a bit overrated experience because you can't truly feel the height of Burj Khalifa (or any other tower for that matter) plus 125th floor is really not the top of tower at 450m. We got the slot at 3 pm for the visit and it took overall 20 minutes to reach on 125th floor. On the way they have put some trivia/ video around to keep you engaged. Visibility was pretty good at that time of the day giving good views of Dubai all around. Recommended time for the visit is around sunset which is expensive. The momentos kept on the top are pretty interesting and we ended up buying a cool magnet for memories. We tried the Virtual Reality experience for 5-7 minutes @35 AED which simulates climbing the top of tower and then taking a jump with parachute which was worth the money spend. Good tick in the box for Dubai.

This is a must see for old and young alike. Reasonably priced and you can stay at the top as long as you like. The views are spectacular and it shows you the old and the new Dubai.Dont miss the experience.

While the Burj Khalifa building is beautiful and the views from the top are spectacular, the process to reach the top using "cattle call" lines was very disappointing and exhausting. By the time we reached the top, we were ready to return to the lobby.

We reached a little after dark . The view from top was truly amazing. The whole dubai was in lights and the view from the top was simply breathtaking. We also bought so many souvenirs.

Worlds tallest building, highest swimming pool, highest bar (Armani hotel), outdoor observation deck and a host of other ‘world firsts’. Definitely worth the trip. Also I suggest paying the extra to go to level 148 where you get up to 45 mins to walk around the buildings panorama. This is part escorted in small groups of around 30 (you are left to your own devices after getting a drink on level 148) and is much less busy than the ‘relatively lower’ floors. Book in advance a must. Try the Virtual Reality experience on Level 125. Surprisingly good and quite scary. Don’t forget to buy your Burj Khalifa shaped chocolate in the gift shop!
