The Basics

Created by the designers of Las Vegas’ Bellagio fountains, The Dubai Fountain is the world’s tallest fountain comprised of 1,000 water formations and 6,600 lights, plus images and music. It’s free to watch from the lakefront, but you can also pay to ride an abra boat or walk on the floating Dubai Fountain Boardwalk for close-up views. The Dubai Fountain is also a regular stop on Dubai city tours, Burj Khalifa experiences, and more.

Loved the experience fro star to finish, getting close up to the fountain show was great.. just didn’t like the fact of collecting the tickets from the Burj khalifa ticket counter as they only have one queue, plus the security and staff are unhelpful and rude !! Back to the shoe it’s great getting up close but the showtimes vary from the booking information, I timed these as my booked show was shorter than the next one ??

Dubai Night Circuit with Dubai Fountain !! Private Dubai Tour at Night Lights !!
Amazing service. Elderly parents took this tour and they were extremely happy. We were able to specifically customize the trip. Hindi speaking guide accompanied my parents and assisted them from start to finish. The guide explained everything in detail and even stopped at places to give my parents some break. We will be reserving them again and again. THANKS SO MUCH!!

Dubai Fountains Show Lake Ride
Our driver Mr Mahez looked after us perfectly. Arrived on time, drove well and escorted us to the boat. Waited and drive us home. The little abra boats are a really good way to view the fountains away from the crowds. We chose 7.30 show which was perfect with the lights. A real spectacle.

Night Dubai City Tour with Flying Cup
Imran was my guide for this tour. He was amazing! I was lucky enough to have him as my personal driver since no one else signed up for the tour. He was knowledgeable and shared so much information with me. He allowed me ample time to explore each stop as we traveled to several points of interest. Such a great guide. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Dubai Top Five Attractions Tour with Admission Ticket and Optional Buffet Dinner
Best parts of this tour was the access to Burj Khalifa viewing deck on floor 125 & 124. The view was simply spectacular, especially the Birdseye view of the Dubai Fountain light show. Dinner @ Armani hotel was great with a good selection of fancy food and dessert to choose from. The Dubai canal cruise was good and offered some great picture taken points of some of Dubai”s eclectic architectural building design.
