One of the first things you see when arriving in Rio, if you know where to look on the way in from the airport, is the Christ the Redeemer statue. At night it's lit up and seems impossibly high, floating in the air. Make no mistake, despite this being one of the most famous and hyped 'touristy' things to do,... More

It was fun to visit and take the train up, I would have also like to have walked it. Were lucky to have a clear day so got to enjoy the views but low lying cloud can be a problem. It is stupidly busy which I did not enjoy- going up was fine but it is crowded at the top,... More

If you are in Rio you are aware that the ONLY thing people want from you there is your money. If you are thinking about going to Corcovado you probably decided to start your Calvarium surrounded by people trying to convince you about the best option (train, minivan etc.). Remember one thing. There is no way to get there (with... More

You can not go to Rio without going to see Christ the redeemer!! One of the many wonders of the world! Fantastic views of both the Christ redeemer and the beautiful coastal scenery of Rio! Best advice is to get there as soon as it opens as the crowds can get a bit overwhelming in the afternoon especially when trying... More

This was a wonderful experience for me and my partner, the views are beautiful and of course the statue is one of the most iconic monuments of Brazil. However if you go by van, when you are leaving the queues are so long. There were around 20 ppl in the queue waiting to go into vans so we could leave.... More

Brilliant it's an iconic sight and a must do in Rio quite busy when we went but it was great, the statue when you get up top is actually larger than you think anyway top class place to visit.

An absolute must whilst in Rio Can get very crowded however we went st 5.30pm and there was no queues and hardly anyone up there. Made for a spectacular photo at sunset As many people have commented there is various ways to get there I opted for an UBER there -from Copacabana it was only 25R, plus the entrance fee.... More

So excited to finally get to see the Christo!Definitely something to tick off the bucket list. Get there early for best photo ops as later on the sun goes behind/beside the statue and makes it hard to get the best photos :)
