Absolutely amazing experience. The energy is incredible. Brought me to tears. An absolutely must do when in Rio and in one's lifetime. I'm coming back here for sure.

Go on a clear day! The clouds parted for us. Just! Very very crowded though but still a great experience.

It was cloudy when I went. So check the weather before you go. Took longer to get there than I spent at the actual statute. I describe this the same as going to see the statute of Liberty. I can't comment on the view. Couldn't see it because of the clouds/overcast.

Would advise anyone to go here in the morning. We went at 4:30 and by the time we got to the top we couldn't see his head with all the mist and fog. Go early to avoid disappointment. Still well worth going to see!

One of the most memorable and stunning sites I have seen in 20 years of travelling to over 20 countries. Get there in the morning as it gets packed in the afternoon.

Obvious MUST SEE / DO... Beaches, Redeemer, good Rodizio, Sugarloaf... but go early to avoid the throng (same goes for Redeemer)... NOT necessary to take taxi as Rio's mass transit is one of the easiest to navigate I've ever experienced (frequency & simplicity on par with best anywhere) transit bus stops 20m from ticket windows... We arrived an hour after... More

It's a must go but it's only a beautiful view. The train trip to the top can be quite boring since you only see jungle.

We visited on a very cloudy day in June and had a great experience. It was nice and quiet and although very cloudy you could still appreciate the views. You can see that in peak times the queues would be extremely long so I definitely recommend going out of season. Our visit was part of a tour so all the... More

When I imagine Rio, it's the image of the Christ who comes to my mind. It makes everybody say Rio is still beautiful, there's nothing more you can say after all...
