I didn't book online so was advised by my Uber driver to take the shuttle bus/van. I invited the driver to join me so I bought a ticket for the van ride up. 1/2 way up the vans stops allowing you to take some pictures of the statue from to different vantage points. You then jump in another van to... More

It's spectacular on a sunny day. Try to be there in the early morning so there won't be too many tourists.

Thanks goodness you can get a lift and 2 escalators up to the top - however you could climb the 221 steps if you wanted to do that - bit scary for me up that high - but didn´t seem to bother anybody else - and what a view - we went early on a tour at about 8am which... More

This is definitely a must do in Rio!We were going there for the Olympics 2016 and sightseeing after. We had the hotel set us up on a tour to see this and Sugar Loaf mountains. You can go up the 220 steps to get up there or take the escalator and elevator. Once there, absolutely breathtaking view!!!! We also took... More

This attraction gets very crowded so after choosing a clear day be sure to get there early. If it is overcast do not bother to waste your time going- reschedule. The tour is very well planned and worth the time and money to go. Even if you are not a religious person it is still a sight to behold.

The place you must visit when you are at rio .. try to go there early to avoid the long lines .. and it's better to arrange your visit with tourist office or book online before going

We all want a beautiful pristine day to visit Christ the Redeemer, but as luck goes the only cloudy day we had in Rio was the day our tour set up our visit. Fortunately the clouds were high enough that we were still able to take in this amazing site in Rio (hint: we were told, if you are not... More

Not just a spiritual place for many, the Christ Redeemer offers some of the most breathtaking views of Rio de Janeiro in 270 degrees. Taking a tour van is best as it's the only one that takes you to the very top, they are honorable and forthcoming at the ticket office in Copacabana and you have a live webcam there... More

The train and minibus cost about the same, but we really enjoyed the experience of the train. Also, go mid morning: after the fog lifts, but before it gets too crowded.

One cannot go to Rio without visiting Christ the Redeemer. We waited for a cloudless day and arrived by 9:00 AM and it was already crowded. There are actually mats on the ground for a person to lie on to get a photo of the entire statue! This architectural phenomenon is incredible and the views from the top are amazing!... More
