I took a couple of hours out of a recent business trip to visit this fabulous site with the statue of Christ the Redeemer towering over Rio de Janeiro. What a wonderful experience it was being driven up the steep, narrow, winding road through lush vegetation to the summit. Here stands the statue of Christ, errected almost one hundred years... More

I didn't have a lot of time to check this out! I wanted to get up to the Christ, take some photos, and leave. We went on a Wednesday morning at about 10 am. We hired a car from our hotel. I can't imagine taking a taxi here because it is a bit out of the way. The views are... More

The Chris' s statute is a real great things to go. But beware of the long queue of people that may take 1-2 hour of waiting . Need to bring sunscreen protection as the sunlight may be very troublesome!

The views are amazing, and the whole adventure is worth the trip. You will not be disappointed, specially if you come with people you love. But words cannot describe it. You have to come live it for yourself!

The view was amazing and you could see almost all of RIO. Definitely take the stairs down, and wear sunscreen on a sunny day since there is little to no shade.

From riding the small train up the mountain to walking up to the statue to looking at this fabulous icon to looking at the great views. It is something that we have all seen on TV or magazines and it does not disappoint .

Definitely a must see in Rio! The view is one of the greatest Ive seen BUT it's very crowded, it took hours to go up and it's definitely too busy up there. Plus, try to go there on a clear hot day, otherwise you wont get to see very much.

I may have been to more crowded places in my life, but I can't remember when. But hey, this is a must do and if it's Rio's #1 attraction your going to get crowds. The statue is breathtaking and the views over the city and ocean aren't bad either. The weather can be a bit fickle here, sunny at the... More

Although there was some scaffolding around the statue, we could still get some good photos & selfies in. But for me the view was out of this world, and is a must for visitors to Rio. Also would recommend taking the train up for the added experience.

We visited Cristo Redendor while we were in Rio in late January 2013. It was really wonderful and absolutely worth it, but the wait to get up the mountain, and the number of people there was significant. My two key recommendations would be to go very first thing in the morning, or last thing in the day, to try to... More
