Great views! Beautiful way to see Rio, and get the best pictures ever of the city and surroundings, as well as Ipanema and Copacabana beaches.

We (2couples) booked in advance for late afternoon train ride on the day we arrived in Rio. This proved to be a wise decision as the station was not busy and the queues were non existent! Once at the top there is an elevator to the next level and from there escalators to the summit. An unforgettable experience!

Great views of the city, and worth the effort and small cost of getting there. Refreshments available on top. Was a bit crowded the day we were there, although lineups were short

The trip to the top was interesting. We went by minibus, not on the train which was slightly disappointing. However, the view from the top is wonderful. We had cloud that was tantalising us, clearing and then coming back. On a clear day it must be wonderful. The Christ statue is beautiful, the face is calm just as one would... More

The tram to go up to the statue is usually very lively as groups playing samba board and it's an instant party. Once at the top, the Christ is truly a man-made wonder of the world, and the views of Rio de Janeiro from the top are absolutely breathtaking. This is a must see.

Whoever dreamed building a statue of Christ overlooking Rio was a genius, as this imposing site, can been seen all over Rio and u feel like a bird high above the beating heart of Rio...having a beautiful sunny afternoon does help though.

This is a cog train ride to the most beautiful mountain top in the world. The earlier you go, the better (for smaller crowds.) Try to pick a sunny day. The Christ statue is amazing with a small chapel at the base. Rio looks beautiful from here. We were there on a Sunday morning and I will always remember it.

Beautiful view from up there! Would recommend anyone to go up there! Historical site! A little bit too crowdy...
