Dubai is famous for its daring architecture and during this tour, you’ll explore two of its most impressive landmarks, the Burj Al Arab and the Burj Khalifa. With a reputation as the world’s most luxurious hotel, the sail-shaped Burj Al Arab stands 321 metres tall on its own manmade island. Behind the V that forms the ‘mast’ is a spectacular, if dizzying, central atrium, with golden curved balconies creating a honeycomb effect. From the atrium, you’ll head to the 27th-floor Banquet Room, where you’ll enjoy a juice, beer or house wineas you take in the views. Next, you’ll head to the Burj Khalifa. At 160 storeys tall, it has many ‘world firsts’ to its name. It’s the tallest skyscraper on the planet and has one of the fastest lifts, too. You’ll be whisked up to the outdoor observation deck on level 124, to enjoy some free time to take in the 360-degree vistas. Just remember, on this trip men have to wear a collared shirt, full-length trousers and smart, closed-toe shoes, and women will need a dress or a long skirt and a top.
Just so you know, the minimum age for this tour is 21 years. Men will need to wear a collared shirt, full-length trousers and smart, closed shoes and women will need to wear a dress or a long skirt and top. The Burj Khalifa is popular, so there maybe up to a 60-minute wait to access the 124th floor observatory - there's no seating area and our tickets don't include the fast-track.
- SUITABILITY Moderate physical activity.
