Must visit this when going to Rio. Please make sure to take the old railway instead of a private taxi or bus. This train runs through the rainforrest all the way to the top. Do not miss that experience entering this way.

Well do you write the review here or under Corcovado ? Cheaper than sugar loaf and possibly the better overall view due to the height but does get cloudy so you must be careful with your timing as you will be sure to have a wait to get up (ours was over an hour) Very busy at sunset so plan... More

We took a van up and it took us straight to the entrance. It's such an amazing sight. You need to see it up close.

Definitely a must visit in Rio for tourist as well as city dwellers. Getting there may take a while but the view makes up for the inconveniences of the way up. Wait for a clear sky and enjoy the trip through the forest and the wonderful 360º view of the city of Rio, the Bay, the beaches and surroundings.

Apart from the actual statue, the views from the top are spectacular. If one is contemplating a visit, budget to spend a lot of time and frustration getting there. The train to the top is in itself a marvel. The problem is the inability of management to handle the crowds of people wanting to go. Try to avoid buying food... More

Up there you are able to see almost all the city, the beaches, Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas, Tijuca and even... More

The trip up was interesting and you got lovely views. Christ was pretty impressive, and no regrets, it was just crowded, like extremely and I do recommend it. It just felt like you go up, you see, you go down.

Getting here will take FOREveR! Prepare to queue in lines to buy tickets, then again for taking a special van bus up to the statue since no street vehicles are allowed up the hill. The queue to get walk up to the statue and once you're there, expect crowds of people pushing for selfies and group shots of themselves with... More

Its rare for a tourist site to touch me so deeply. It is magnificent and beautiful. If you can, please make some time and go! My fiancee hiked the nature trail up to the Cristo Redentor and i took the bus. The hike is about 2 hours and he loved it. The drive is scenic and slightly manic (Rio drivers... More
