The lines for this attraction were atrocious!!! It would have taken 3 hours just to get to the tram that took you up to the top. We only had 4 hours so we didn't get a chance to make the trip up. Make sure you go early enough or have plenty of time. I'm bummed that missed being able to... More

I have been all over the world although I was born in Rio. I am still to find a view and a city that looks this beautiful from above like Rio in a nice clear day. If it is not clear don't even bother to go up, go through the tram or tour. This is the place for you to... More

Very nice place to visit. However, it is very crowded. Because of the long waiting in line. The tour guide took us in a long exhaustive journey to the top ON FOOT. It took around 45 min in very hot humid wearther and low oxygen. We enjoy it. You can try it if you are in good health. Worth to... More

Fortunately there are really only two tourist sites to see in Reno, this and the Sugar Loaf. So it wins by default and tourists go there because there really is not much else to see. If you have been up to see Sugar Loaf, this attraction offers the same view of the city and surrounding areas, then it is a... More

I visited Corcovado within morning hours (9-10am) and yes, crowds were there already, but it was not that bad. Waiting for the best spot on the platform took me a minute and there was still enough space to walk freely... You offer help to a couple which struggles with Cristo-selfie. They help you out, too... normal stuff :) The view... More

Must see in Rio. The atmosphere is crowded, but well worth it because of the terrific views and grandeur of the statue. Can be foggy at times and therefore a bit cooler.

One cannot visit Rio without going up the winding road to Christ the redeemer. The view of Rio is amazing, but I advize to get there as early as possible before the crouds and clouds spoil an unbelievable visit.

Go early before all the other tourists. It is amazing. The views are very beautiful. The day we were there we were above the clouds, an amazing sight.

A must see when you go to Rio. The view from the top is amazing, but be warned that there are normally thousands of other people who also want that view so be prepared for a small crowded platform. The vanicular ride to the top is steep but exciting.
