My experience wasn't the best - yes it was beautiful seeing how big the statue is, and the view was rather nice however it was really cloudy when we went and that unfortunately tainted the view a bit. The biggest let down however was the amount of tourist up there - people were bumping into me all the time and... More

It was clear skies when we started the trip, but when we arrived there were some clouds just around the statue at the top. Such a shame, however, we still got the sense of how big this statue actually is and when the clouds moved we occasionally saw the whole statue. Quite a mystic experience! We went late in the...

Its an Iconic landmark that every time I see Pictures of Rio the outstretched arms seem to welcome you to the City. Maybe all the hype left me a little disappointed with the actual statue itself, although the train trip and then the lift to the summit was quite enjoyable and less tiring than I expected. Great views from the... More

We had an amazing experience there. We just woke up on a Sunday morning and saw clear blue skies. We quickly headed to Praca da Lido in Copacabana and took the official shuttle bus. 40 minutes later we were on top of Rio de Janeiro. The views and feeling are amazing and you'll never forget them. A piece of advice:... More
