The staff were friendly and helpful.
The view of the city from up there was spectacular but very windy.

“Nice view from the top of the 2nd tallest building in Nairobi”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

The highlight of the visit is to take the lift to the top of the 2nd tallest building in Nairobi. The view is spectacular from the helicopter landing pad at the top especially on the clear day we visited. We were accompanied by a tall Masai security guard dressed in black with very impressive dark glasses who made sure we did not get up to any mischeif!!!

“Worth it for the view of Nairobi - much better with a guide”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

In response to the reviewer (December) who didn't know there were lifts and had to walk up the stairs - there are lifts that go up to the floor below the roof! We were pounced on when still 100 yards from the front door by Peter. our guide, who took us in and escorted us to the roof. Without Peter it would have been unpleasantly pricey as all you would have was a great view of the city and beyond but no idea of what was what. Peter filled us in on lots of local information and spent a good half hour with us. The only downside was that, once the tour had finished he proceeded to give a hard-luck story of truly epic proportions along with subtle drop-ins of how much some good samaritans had given him (hint, hint) which sort of soured things a little as I was already going to tip him well as he had made the trip so worthwhile for us. It left me feeling a bit hustled - and he would have got more from me had he not said anything after the tour. My tip, as i think Peter is the main guide there - tip him before he launches into his sob story.

“Great view of Nairobi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

We took a trip to the top of KICC our first day in Kenya to get a 360 degree view of Nairobi from on high. A tour guide, Peter, stations himself at the top of the building and in exchange for a modest tip (whatever we wanted to pay him) spent a good 15-20 minutes explaining what we were looking at. Like other attractions in Kenya, it is expensive, especially for non-African tourists, but a good way for a newcomer to get his/her bearings quickly

“They wanted to charge us, even without a tour”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

We were visiting friends who wanted to take us up for a quick look at the city. There was no guide there and they still wanted us to pay what we would have paid if there was a guide. Just didn't seem worth it so we didn't go up.
