Great feeling in Rio

It doesn't matter what religion you are - you will have a breathtaking experience at the Christus statue! The views, of course are amazing.

This is the hallmark of Rio. The weather is key. A cloudy day will sort of take the thrill out of the trip. The cog-train is very cool.

Train ride up the mountain was pretty cool. Not religious so no comments on the statue but the views are breath taking!

Even though there is not much else to do besides take some amazing pictures, you can't come to Rio without seeing the Christ Redeemer. We booked this tour directly through our hotel and it was combined with SugarLoaf. Tour guide gave basic history and the ride itself up to the Christ had me praying we'd make it up there in... More

We just returned from a trip to Brazil and this was one of the fascinating things we saw in Rio. Although it was a cloudy day and visibility to see below from the top was obscured, it was otherworldly to view this impressive statue from above the clouds! almost like a trip to heaven. The chapel was humble and I... More

We took the minivans on our way up. They stop midway for you to look over Rio from quite a height and it was beautiful! (The train is another option though it doesn't stop mid way and goes directly to the top). There are many vans ready to go while the train is not as frequent. Drivers in uniform will... More

We went to Cristo Redento in the end of July, which is typically not their summer.. We took a taxi from Sugarloaf Mountain and the driver offered us a deal to take us up to Cristo Redento and then back to Copacabana where our hotel was for R$150. Didn't sound like a bad deal so we took it. He stopped... More

It was my dream to see Christ the Redeemer and was thrilled at the opportunity through Rio Maximo tours. An emotional visit.

Highly recommend doing the Early visit to this place and miss the crowd. We were fortunate that the clouds parted just before we got the summit! We literally stood above the clouds!!! Blue sky made a perfect back drop for selfie and landscape photos!!!

This is one of the mandatory places to visit in Rio! Don't hesitate to visit the Cristo! Probably you're not gonna forget this tour. One of the,most significant things that I'd like to relieve is the really good customer service. Everything is put in order and on time
