Christ the Redeemer truly is breathtaking up close. I recommend booking a tour guide who will take you early so you can beat the cues. But once there you have breath taking panoramic views of Rio below as well as photographing the statue

this is one touristy sight that is well worth the wait. I never thought I would like this monument as much as I did. Cristo, and the breathtaking views from the statue is truly unique. A must see.

This was well worth the visit despite the horrible weather we had...the ride up was fun and it was interesting to see the tropical jungle in heart of Rio. if I ever get back to Rio, would make the time to go up again...on a clear day!

It's easy to see why the statue is considered one of the wonders of the world! The train journey up there adds to the experience and the views from the journey up as well as the top are amazing! There is a Juice bar at the top which is not only really nice but it is also reasonably priced. We... More

My second visit in 5 years. Amazing experience even though crowded during World Cup time. At least 2 - 3 hours required and view from the top coupled with statue itself cannot be described by words

When at the station we got our tickets stamped “no visibility”, I kind of laughed about the concept. There was indeed not much visibility, rain and cold. But seeing the majestic statue is still amazing. We were able to take nice souvenir pictures with less people. But I would have prefer a clear and sunny day. To be tested on... More

We arrived at 10am and was surprise at the size of the queue, which stretched back for a couple of hundred meters. We waited patiently and slowly we got nearer to the small train. After an hour we were told there was a problem and the train wouldn't be ready for another 2 hours, so we got a taxi up... More

Just another statue on a mountain with a view BUT - the train trip is fantastic. Built in 1887 it uses a cog wheel on a 3rd central track to make some pretty steep ascents. Worth it just for the train ride.

Great views of Rio from above, can get some amazing pictures if you prepared to tackle the crowds. It's a little chaos with all the people hustling to get their pic in.
