During a 30-minute ride in an "abra" water taxi, take in the illuminations of the Dubai Mall Fountain Show. The Dubai Fountain is the tallest performing fountain in the world, and it is a visually stunning display of water, music, and light in Downtown Dubai.

The Dubai Fountain has a length of over 900 feet (274 meters), is on the 30-acre (120,000 m2) Burj Lake, and plays a variety of music.

On Burj Lake, board a traditional wooden boat and cruise past the Souk Al Bahar, Burj Khalifa and Palace, three of the city's most famous landmarks. Before you take your position for a grandstand view of the illuminations, take in the stunning skyline of the city from the water.

You get an exclusive and intimate look at the visual spectrum of over 1,000 water expressions because there are only 6 people on each boat.

Watch in wonder as the wellsprings light up during a visual exhibition that highlights 6,000 lights, 25 shaded projectors, and 22,000 gallons (83,000 liters) of airborne water! Watch a breath-taking dance of light and water choreographed to classical, Arabic, and world music.

Thanks for the surprise. After exchanging the booking code for a ticket, I was sent to the general queue, the QR code worked on the turnstile for some reason, and when I got into the elevator I realized that there would be no fountains. It was a visit to the 124th floor of the Burj Khalifa observation deck. Use the scheme, save $40

Fountain show was very captivating. Boat driver was considerate of lining up the boat to get a great view. Fountain show can be seen from the pathways and restaurants but the boat's provide another layer to the experience. However if booking online, it is best to arrive early and ask around for the desk within the mall to collect tickets, it is not clear and very poor signage.

See the magic up close and personal. I've seen both the Las Vegas and Dubai fountain shows and they are both spectacular. You get a brilliant view, the best opportunity for videos/photos and an opportunity to boat round the largest man-made lake in the world. Would definitely recommend.

The fountain show is just beautiful, already if you look at the spectacle as pedestrian from the lake side walk. But sitting in this little traditional boat, gliding through the water and having the views from different perspectives makes it even more special and enjoyable. Worth the money! We picked up our vouchers inside Dubai mall and found the boats easily outside.

Lovely, relaxing activity to end your day. The boatride allows you to view the icon buildings including the Burj from a different angle. The foundation show was also beautiful but too short in my opinion. Kids would love this. I experienced it solo and was thoroughly satisfied. It's also romantic too for all the lovers out there! I highly recommend ;-)

Overall experience good boat goes out at your scheduled time. Arriving 10 min early is better otherwise you end up lining up for too long. I arrived quite early and saw the fountain dance at least 4 time before I got on the! It would have been even more amazing if the fountain show was in colour. Just a money saving tip, If anyone is interested to save money and doesn’t want to miss the fountain show you can see it close up without having to go on the boat.

Highly recommend, lovely way to see the fountains. Beware the boat ride station outside is nowhere near the wafu restaurant as directions suggest. It is actually directly on the waterfront in front of the Burj khalifa building. Was a bit stressful trying to find it as it was so busy here.

The line to exchange the voucher can be a bit long. Also, the queueing process at the lake can be a bit chaotic. Don't worry, there are plenty of boats to go around. Each boat is on the lake for the same duration - first out, first back to unload. Great experience, right in the show!

Excellent trip. Well organised and my breakfast cruise departed on time. The crew were extremely attentive, offering drinks and assisting customers with photographs. Breakfast was plentiful, croissants, bread, cheese and fresh fruits. Water and orange juice was available at all times. The trip itself was not hurried, and allowed for plenty of time to sightsee and take photographs. Well done Xclusive tours … 10/10

The ride is slow and calm, the best part is you get to see the fountain show up close. All rides are timed to see the show so don’t worry about that. In June at 6:15pm there wasn’t much people so super nice and queue was fast. You get a bit of mist from the show but you don’t get wet.
