Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Went to floor 128, which was plenty high enough for myself.
    The views are absolutely amazing.
    Worth the fee which was a non vip ticket which was great value.
    Must do if in Dubai.

    Different music and light shows syncing with music until 11 pm weekdays and late weekends. Good to see from 124th of Burj Khalifa the Fountain show after 7 pm, and also down in front of the fountain. it was pleasant to see even in that hot humid weather.

    Friendly staff, very clean and overall a great experience. Unfortunately we arrived at 19:00 and although we paid for the ultimate experience we didn’t get to see the all the penguins.
    Maybe it would be a good idea to be able to choose which experience you would like to do and not be offered just a full option and an option just without the glass boat tour.

    Overall would recommend.

    The architecture tour offered by the Opera was amazing. We had a very kind guide, who involved us by asking queations and we could see hidden treasures
    of the Opera. Do not miss the bathroom!

    Underneath the incredible Burj Khalifa and next door to the Dubai Fountains and Dubai Opera House, this is a nice green space in Downtown Dubai.

    There are some water rides and other games for kids and there are often events in the space, including pop markets and entertainment.

    Worth a visit if you’re near round and about the Dubai Mall.

    Stunning views! Great place for photographs. Everyone is doing the same! Couldn't see the appeal of the wings statue but everything else with the views is lovely. Worth a stop!

    One of the best galleries I’ve been to in Dubai. There are so many unique exhibits that cannot be found anywhere else. It’s definitely worth a visit if you are in Dubai
