Easy to reach, tcog train only carries 112 passengers early morning trips easiest. Pre book tickets if you can.Spectacular views and the statue is remarkable. Souvenirs at the top very expensive. Buy when you get down.

Well worth the visit and quite a sight. Brazilians consider it a wonder of the modern world. Go with the earliest tour you can get, we left at 7.15 am, as the crowds get busier and busier as the morning goes on. And it's better on a clear day, obviously, so check the forecast before you commit.

Having seen the photos, nothing prepares you for the real thing. It is stunning. The train ride up the mountain is also quite an experience.

The landscape views are just amazing !!! But if you are planning to go here and take a nice picture with "Cristo" it will be hard, the place is totally fulll full of tourists. Otherwise really worth to visit! The totalcost willbe around 62 reales. You have 2 options: 1. wait for the train to go up (better option) and... More

One of the modern seven wonders of the world. It is nicely done and has escalators and elevators after the cog train ride to the top of the mountain. The views of the city and beaches are awesome. Go early in the day when the crowds are less and it is not so hot.

Certainly a magnificent statue, but equalled by the history and engineering behind the construction effort. Had a thrill coming into the harbor on our cruise ship at dawn, passing Sugarloaf, and seeing this statue like a white beacon behind and above the city. What a sight! We were there at the end of Carnival, and the crowds were large. Fortunately,... More
