rightly one of the wonders of the man-made world. The statue is, quite simply, stunning as a work of art as well as a religious icon. The simplicity of it's lines make it all the more beautiful and the act of seeing it for the first time all the more humbling. The vantage point from what must be the highest... More

You got to climb it. It's quite step so make sure your footwear is appropriate. I saw a little girl finishing this climb so shame on you if you can't;) views are truly amazing. If you're fit, 1h is enough to climb it. If you're going with older person, 50+, it will take up to 3h. But it is worth... More

Extraordinary views of Rio from the top of the mountain, great train ride through the Tijuca National Park, great 1/2 day trip away from the beach. I take one point off because of the crowds. It makes it difficult to move or take in the view. But that's Rio!

I bought the ticket online as i was afraid to miss the chance to go up due to sold out tickets. The problem is that weather and visibility can chance even thought weather forecast assures good weather. Visibility of the city was very poor, but the Cristo was visible. The price is expensive

Just hop on official van from Lido Park (Praca Do Lido in portuguese), and you can stay at Cristo Redentor long as you want then hop on next available van back to Copa. I will do this again when I head back to Rio!

Can get v crowded so go early, we caught the 'tourist ' bus from copacabana beach- the ticket paid for fair plus entry to the site which saves additional queuing so would recommend ( there are a few bus sites ). But definitely worth seeing!

Just amazing the size and craft involved in making this statue of Christ and amount of people. It really is a wonder of the world. Worth the queuing and return journey because first visit he was covered in cloud. Tip. Book on line using a computer not ipad.

It was my third trip to Rio before I got dragged on to this tour. The procedural and transactional nature of this high-volume logistical money-spinning operation makes the experience somewhat artificial. But that's what being a tourist with a camera around your neck is all about. We're sheep. The view is incredible. They've certainly got it in Rio. The god-given... More
