Sadly it was foggy when we were there but there were still huge amounts people. There is a chapel at the base of the monument and plenty of signage to give you an idea of facts and figures. Escalators to take to up to the monument and lifts also before that.

If you come to Rio, you cannot miss this trip. The view is amazing, and the statue itself is really overwhelming, but that's it. Apparently it wasn't full when we were there, but surely was a lot of people. Can't imagine when it's full. We recommend getting there by public transport or onibus, you have to take the ones that...

Our private guide, Eugenio with Your Guide in Rio, took us up the mountain to the statue and it was well worth it to have him along to share his knowledge of the history of the site with us. The statue is a magnificient structure and the views of the city are magnificient also.

Take the train to see the statue, you get two experiences in one! It is magnificent and worth the few stairs you need to climb to see it.

I was in awe to see the monkeys in the trees, before getting to see the most unbelievable statue and one of the seven wonders of the world. I am very fearful of heights. However, the driver made the trip comfortable and so worth the trip. It would have been ashame to miss that wonder because of fear. What an... More

great day out, stunning views, easy to get to when getting the bus, wouldn't fancy walking or cycling it but plenty did when we were up. Well worth the visit

Our tour group (along with what seemed like every other person in Brazil 😀) spent several hours here. You take an electric train up the mountain. A few steps or an escalator takes you up to the statue. Great views around the city. Hard to get a good shot of the statue due to all the people. Water can be... More

The Cristo Redentor is a must in rio. Not only is the statue impressive, the hill offers magnificent panorami said of the city. Definitely take the tram (do not take the mini buses). Be careful buying tram tickets in advance - you won't want to go if it is cloudy.

We decided to go to Corcovado mountain because it is one of the must-see in Rio. Even, we were there in November, there was a lot of people. 50% of them were taking photo with hands wide open just like the Cristo monument. It was hard to take a good picture without good camera in the afternoon because the sun... More

We visited Christ the Redeemer in a minibus party. You take the road part of the way up the mountain and then park half way up, change to a smaller minibus once inside the national park, follow a winding road further up and come to the area where the statue is. Here you can take escalators, stairs or lifts to... More
