What a view

Spectacular in every way. Catch the train up, buy the tickets online and do it first thing or the crowds are enormous.

You need to be here to get a real idea about why Rio is considered among the most stunning cities in the world. Best time to go in the morning or whenever it is clear. If you have private guide then you don't stand in any long line for tickets!

The view from the top is fantastic and the ride up in the old train is relaxing with a few views peeking through the foliage. For me it was the surrounding area that made it more than just a wonder of the world. The police in military grade gear and automatic rifles with all types of tourists funneling into the... More

So far all reviews I Read where about a nice view but not to impressed with the statue. I personally liked both. The view is much more impressive compared to the sugarloaf mountain and the statue offers a kind of sacred piece that fits with it. It is beautiful from all angles and especially lit up at night. Nice extra... More

The statue is the most known sight of Rio. For me it was a very special feeling seeing it and being so close to it. I slaw and have seen it only on TV. Make sure to be early no to wait too long for your ticket. Small busses bring you up and the last steps you have to take... More

You can't visit Rio and fail to climb up to the Cristo Redentor. Book your tickets in advance to avoid the long queues and, if possible, plan your visit for the end of the day, the sunset from Corcovado is spectacular.

The grounds are as interesting as the statue. Wild monkeys were as plentiful as squirrels are at home. The vendors were not overly pushy and the merchandise was inexpensive. We bought most of our souvenir tee shirts here.

This is probably the most famous site in Rio -- and for good reason. The views are extraordinary and the statue itself is a work of art. It will cost 62 reals per person to take the tram up there. It is insanely crowded. You'll spend a lot of your time dodging people with selfie sticks and people lying on... More

we failed to go up to the top on two previous days due to cloudy weather and consequently there was lot of crowd on third day morning. People from all nationalities were there and it is very difficult for a quiet moment alone. That said, the statue is gigantic and truly inspiring. And as a symbol of Brazil, it has... More

It's a wonder of the world, nothing that I'm going to be able to write in this review will do it justice. If you have the chance go see it,
