I recommend going as early as possible! Lots of tourists go, and they make you wait until there is enough people to allow others in. Waiting in Brazilian heat is never pleasant. The views from here were breathtaking. This is truly an amazing experience. Make sure to go around the back to the small little chapel. It is quaint and... More

We completed the walk up to the corcovado (which took approximately 2 hours). This made the spectacular view and the corcovado especialy special.

This is a must do In Rio. It is very busy and crowded but worth the wait. It is quite a hike although they do have some disability accessibility. The views of Rio in the valley are spectacular. Wouldn't have missed the experience for anything.

Very touristic but still a must-do experience. Going there by train is already nice, the view on the top is overwhelming.

Rio, oh Rio. That's such a stunning city! With all that beauty at your feet, kinda literally, you can only start believing that God does exist! Who else could have done that? Speaking about human stuff, the prices are sort of no reachable for locals. Fees, services, food, souvenirs and products are really expensive for those who are paying with... More

Lot's has been said about the view, stunning, Rio at its best. Sure, can be bad weather and sure, at best weather and weekends, it will be crowded. We bought tickets (75 R$) at the Copacabana and took a bus (10 people) from there to the mid-station, where we changed the bus to go to the top. Apparently they try... More

Best way to go is by taking the vans at Atlantica avenue Copacabana beach ( near Cardeal Arcoverde metro station ) or near Largo do Machado metro station. The vans cost R$ 74,00 and the fare includes round trip and Crist entrance fee. Don´t try to drive by yourself, as far as you will go is at a place called... More

My fourth time at the Cristo Redentor, it never fails me. This time my wife and I even ran into a couple monkeys as we were going up to the statue. My only warning is make sure you have some form of transportation when you leave late as Uber drivers don't go there at night!

I've seen all 7 new wonders in the world, I must say that Christ the Redeemer is over-rated. Yet, it's still worth seeing and it's beautiful. The Rio panoramic view from the top is amazing. The queue is long, so be patient, once you got into the tram, it's a 20 minute ride up. Then, you can hike up to... More
