This is a really great place to go when in Rio...a real must see and make sure to look inside where there is a little church like setting and light a candle (donation req but it can be small). Get there early, it opens at 8am and the locals know that...they are there early to get through. Bring water and... More

Despite the crowds this is a great attraction. We found the best way to get from Catete was by taxi. and then catch the train. Pre booking tickets on the internet at least guarantees a time but not necessarily the time you have booked. Tour operators seem to get priority. We had to wait about 30 mins. The views are... More

Big crowd at lower station, but trip up good. View on top outstanding. Main complaint was large number of people taking long time for selfies. Some even lying down & using extension poles to take selfies against statue. Others pushing iPads or similar in front of others to take selfies. Small cameras are ok, but cameras on poles & large...

You just cant miss this one but dont exepct to be the only visitor there! The ticketing process at the Copacabana gathering base was chaotic........Even having an internet-booked ticket with a specified time didnt seem to matter much..... and lots of others found that to be the case on the day that I was there, too.Patience, patience, patience!! The vistas??... More

The visit was great. Got lucky and got to sit in the very front of the train going up which is a Cog Wheel train and goes right through a Jungle. Definitely bring a Hat -- it's super sunny and you will get burnt if you are fair skinned. The attraction is is just stunning. We were there when the... More

It would be hard to come to Rio and miss this but whilst the statue is stunning, sugar loaf shades it for views and ambience. But you really should do both!

i don't think one can go to Rio without seeing Cristo Redentor, and we went up with the tram. They have a screen showing a live feed of the visibility at the box office (where they sell the tickets) and warn you about the conditions so that you can decide if you want to go or not. We knew there... More

while the view probably isn't quite as good as sugar loaf, nice panoramic view of Rio, and the train and Jesus make for a better all round experience

Christ's giant image on top of Corcovado Mountain is a beckoning sight wherever and whenever one looks up in Rio. HIS illuminated figure at night lights your heart with a longing to be with HIM because HE is indeed the REDEEMER! Rio is so blessed to have this immense CHRIST with extended open arms and hands guarding the city and... More

This is one of the places to visit before you die..... As advised by our tour guide, we were there 8:30am to avoid big crowds. Still the place was a bit busy when we arrived. The access road reminded me of the road to Macchu Pichu. Of course the highlight of this visit is getting a photo with Christ the... More
