Was worthwhile to book the vip tickets. Much better then waiting for more than 2-3 hours. We had all the time on 148, 124 and 125 floor. Going down wax also much faster with no queuing. You should take time to enjoy the outside area and fountains as well. We have used Uber to travel around the town. Very easy.

Maria is making the journey very special, is not just to have an unforgettable view with amazing cocktails… is much more, Naria will provide sime nice surorises

It was a complete activity. We had a single big car for our family and our guide was prepared, always on time and dedicated to us.

No doubt that is the main thing to no forget to do in Dubai.

well worth the little extra to avoid the long queues
