    To the best of my knowledge, I can see no difference.

    At last:

    "After a considerable length of time; finally."

    (From the Online Dictionary, Encyclopedia and Thesaurus. Free access.)

    Finally:

    "You use finally to suggest that something happens after a long period of time, usually later than you wanted or expected it to happen."

    (From Collins Cobuild)

    I also believe their meanings are similar, if not exactly the same.
