Great once you are there. Tickets for the funicular are sold along Copacabana, much cheaper than paying a tour. a MUST , at least once in a lifetime. Attention to the time you chose to go up. Now opens later, and shuts earlier. Very crowded. Worth it all the same.

No visit to Rio would be complete without a visit to see the Redeemer. It does not disappoint. A beautiful impressive statue. and the setting is spectacular

I visited the Christ the Redeemer statue as part of a tour group on a Thursday afternoon. Crowds at the lower train station were light (other than our group), but crowds at the statue were dense. Beautiful weather made the visit even more enjoyable. The views of the city are second only to the statue itself. Plan to spend an... More

It is much advised to be at the place very early to avoid the crowd. Even if it is delayed by little time the crowd starts increasing. It was very difficult to take photos due to large number of people. Visit early else forget the fun .

We made the mistake of doing this with a tour group, after waiting 1 1/2 hours in copacabana for Brazilians to take their sweet time getting on the bus, we arrived at 10am and the train and summit was packed and the tour only gave us 30 min on top. The viewpoints on top are very small so the crowds... More

The day was nice and had very few clouds when I went. The view from the mountain is AMAZING. The statue itself looks like it could be one of the wonders of the world.

Amazing view, busy and touristy but you have to go when you are in rio. Would recommend just going here as the rest of tour was pretty average

An icon of Rio - I went early and no long waits for train. Amazing views and easy to get to by cab. But once you have taken in the view it is really a case of take the train back down. The walk is meant to be great - but quite hard work!

Go very early in the morning to avoid crowds. Views are stunning, and the actual Christ is overwhelming. Spend at least an hour at the top to enjoy the 360 views in their whole splendor. Late night may be a good choice, too.

Our hostel told us where to go to meet/book a tour. We arrived at a square and purchased a ticket from a outpost then got in the nearby mini van which took us to the statue. Its a 20/30min trip up the mountain with some nice views along the way. On arrival you have as much time as you need... More
