Customer Reviews

    Unfortunately we booked tickets to do this experience but in the same day we were doing the Burj Khalifa and Sky Observatory. With all the queuing we did for these experiences which we didn’t expect we never made our time slot for the lake ride and fountain show. I was gutted to have missed it and would defo book again if I went back to Dubai. So this is the only reason I gave 3 stars.
