This was an awesome experience seeing this statue. The view of Rio De Janeiro from the top of that mountain was breathtaking. A must see if you visit Rio

This is one of the attraction that we made sure we will not miss when in Rio as we had seen it many times in movies and also catholic. we took a cab from our hotel (Ibis Botafogo) and it costs us about 2OR to reach the tramp station. Once our taxi arrived, we were directed to the ticketing counter... More

We visited Cristo Redentor on a Monday morning. We were with our private tour guide, Vicente. (See Tour Guide Vicente - Rio Private Tours) and we gave him the money and he purchased the tickets for us (R$50-Cash), so we were able to skip the line. Nice! It was a gorgeous day and we got some great photos! I think... More

The day we visited the status, it was clear and sunny so the views were amazing. It was a a lot of people trying to get that one shot of themselves in front of the statue but It was a great sight to see and the views of Rio was amazing. I was even able to see my hotel on... More

This dude is epic! Yes it's busy but worth seeing. Be mindful of pickpocketers and keep valuables close at all times. Get plenty of photos and try to get a chance to soak up the panoramic views of Rio while you're up there. This was the first wonder of the world I've seen and I'll never forget it :)

Beautiful experience but long lines to get in ... Also ended up going there on a foggy day so couldn't really see the statue by the time we got to the top. 1. Make sure you're there early to avoid the 30-40 minute wait in line 2. Check the weather to ensure clear skies.

Visiting the statue and seing Rio from above is something that words cannot describe. It is absolutely outstanding and worth the visit. The only advice I can give you in order to get the brightest most beautiful view from there, is to try and visit the place during morning and early afternoon hours, and not the late afternoon hours.

You can't come to Rio and not see this!! Go early because it gets crazy crowded. Also, don't waste your time if it's cloudy, you won't get to see the beautiful views. I've been twice and it was just as breathtaking the second time.

Spectacular view of the city! You can see so much of Rio from up there. Very peaceful and a beautiful ride to the top.

No trip to Rio would be complete without visiting Christ the Redeemer. Go really early to avoid the main tour bus times or it can get rather crowded. Still go if it is cloudy/foggy as the winds push clouds through and the atmosphere still incredible.
