it was always a thrill to go to the foot of jesus the redeemer. and when you there it is breath taking. and you start to wonder how man had built just a large statue of jesus on the highest mountain in Rio. you can view the entire Rio from there. splendid view.

Beautiful place to visit. The city looks better from the top. It can get very crowded - best to get there early.

Try and get your tickets online even when in Brazil. You will save time! There's also a nice cafe up there too..

We went to Brazil during their winter time, and although we didn't have much problems with weather (70-80's warm and humid) one of the downfalls was that we paid to take the tram up the mountain to see the statue, and it was almost completely covered by clouds/fog. It was quite disappointing. Some of our group went back a week... More

Even though it was crowded during the World Cup, the trek up there was worth it. You can drive most of the way up, take a tour van, or take the tram. If you're in RIO, make the trip.

First tip...DO NOT GO DURING A MAJOR EVENT...like the worldcup. We were in Brasil for the worldcup but of course we had to make time to come here. We had planned on going really early when they opened, but that didn't happen and we ended up not getting there until 12:30..very big mistake! We stayed in Copacabana and took the... More

The iconic Cristo Redentor statue on top of Corcovado mountain is more awe inspiring in person than any picture or photo can convey. We were fortunate to have a clear day and looking up to the face of the statue was breath taking and inspirational, whether you are a religious person or not. You feel quite insignificant when you stand... More

Unfortunately I arrived in Rio and rushed off to see the statue without much thought of how high up it was and the cloud coverage. Please check the weather before you go as I was only able to see from the feet to about half way up! As for views of Rio itself, there was hardly a chance to see... More

Super crowded, and you can see the same if not better view from the Sugar Loaf. We felt very crowded, and the lineups are huge. If you really want to see it come here very early!

This review is just to up my TripAdvisor counter because the mere thought of going to Rio and not going to see this is like going to Paris and not seeing the Eiffel tower. Expect to pay 25 BRL for bus only to get there. You can go by foot but consider that only if you're the Ironman marathon type... More
