Incredible views. Late afternoon was a good time to go. No lines and better lighting for photos. My only regret is that the tour did not allow for Christ the Redeemer photos upon approach. Only when we were right on it did we have time to take photos.

I enjoyed my time in Rio and especially here. I ended up taking a bus from Copacabana to the Corcovado and everything went smoothly. No long lines, etc. Go see it!

most recommended to arrive very early in the morning to avoid the crowd , the explanation maps at the top were covered so we could not quite understand what we are looking at

We went there in the red little train! We had to wait one hour but it was a nice ride! Some brazilians were dancing samba in the train and you can see the forest! The cristo is amazing... very crowded so it is going to be a challenge to take a picture! Do not get very frustrated!

The transportation is just ok, sometimes they make a mass when it brokes. At the top, when in winter times, take a light jacket because there,is windy and a little bit cold.

Very beautiful views. The monument is impressive. A must-do in Rio. The area is crowded with tourists on top so moving around is slow but worth it. I suggest taking the Tijuca National Park official vans (written on the van) either from Largo do Machado Metro (they are parked at the square when you come up from the Metro) or... More

We came here in the off season and went early in the morning and it was still mobbed. We took a van (holds about 6 or 7) from Copacabana beach which was about a block from our hotel. That turned out to be a great idea. Very convenient. You don't have to wait for the train to go back down.... More

Came here as part of Viator's full day Rio trip: morning Sugarloaf and afternoon Christ the Redeemer. Arrived there around 430pm so was lucky enough to see it in daylight, dusk and night! Memories of a lifetime. Breathtaking and spectaular in every way! DO NOT MISS THIS!

From the drive up, to the views, to the statue itself, to the drive down - unforgettable. Take one of the early access tours in the morning to avoid the crowds and avail of the cooler temps. Evening is lovely too though and gives a different perspective on sunset. The only downside is that when you are right up there... More
