You can't come to Rio and not visit. We went on a perfect day weather wise. Stunning views. It is ridiculously busy but that's to be expected. That being said it didn't negatively impact the experience. A once in a lifetime visit.

Absolutely amazing but check the weather before you go. Up top you can get the best WiFi in all of Rio de Janeiro.

A must do in Rio. We went up twice as it was a bit grey the first time we went up and we didn't get much of a view. The train is the way to go to get to see the view. Given it's a must do, it's very busy. So go early to avoid the crowds.

Unmissable place to visit, have a head for heights. Easy to do it on your own, take a taxi to Term do Corcovado and either get the train up the hill or get a minibus (loads of them at $B30) to the park entrance and then pay $B37 for entry top the park and mini bus to the top.

It's looks small from afar, however when when your up lose the statue is huge. Try to go early rather than late to avoid the crowds and the heat. Hopefully you don't experience to much cloud cover so you can get cool pictures...

From almost anywhere in Rio, this statue stands like its protector. Getting there is much easier than I thought. First there is the lovely train ride, then a short elevator ride and then an escalator. Just like that, you are at the base of the statue. Our guide told us to walk out to the balcony at the far end... More

Thousands of tourists psing and taking selfies, millions of mosquitos, but its an icon and one of the places you have to visit in Rio. The views are spectacular, if you can find a spot to admire it.

Ok there are crowds ! But it is one of the most famous places on the planet (and in my case it was during Carnivale !) Beautiful views over the city only surpassed by Sugarloaf (in my opinion) And he certainly is very large ! Considering the crowds I though the organisation was very good getting everyone up and back... More

An absolute MUST if you are in Rio. Be warned though, it is packed, very busy, there are long queues. That said it is worth it, the views are fantastic, and to get so close to a world icon is a true experience. It is too busy really for any spiritual experience but nevertheless not to be missed.
