We went early in the morning. Outstandingly good advice! The crowds are large even before 9 am and grow at an unbelievably fast rate with every passing quarter hour. But no matter when you can go, be sure you do not miss this world famous iconic symbol of Rio.

The monument is beautiful. You can go by elevators if you co.e early there isn't a huge line. Lots of huge flying ants that stings, watch it.

We booked to go to Christ the Redeemer on a minibus from halfway down Copacabana Beach. This took us to halfway up the hill where we transferred to another minibus which took us closer to the summit. We found the organisation of this to be first class and ran like clockwork. The last stint involved climbing up numerous stairs but... More

Went on a beautiful clear day! Stunning! We made a 5 hour adventure to take some great pictures of and with Christ the Redeemer. Lots of shops and plenty of nice places to eat, shop, or just sit and enjoy.

It takes a lot of patience to get there, but once you have completed the 220 steps your jaws will drop. so so sooo impressive!! Be prepared for a crowd.

A must see for tourists. Can be extremely crowded at the top; but, it is a must see if in Rio. Take the train up, and down the mountain. Much more fun than a cab to the top of the mountain. Can do it in a couple of hours or spend half a day. Great views and a cool atmosphere.

We decided to take the alternative route to see Christ the Redeemer and walk from Parque Lage. Having read some people's experience of armed robbery on the trail, I was quite nervous .. I think we ascended in record time :) But in all seriousness, we took precautions .. one phone between two of us, minimum cash and going at... More

Christ the redeemer is an absolute must see when visiting Rio De Janeiro. There were many tours companies offering a tour from 100 Brazilian Real... upwards. However we found the cheapest deal going direct with the bus company for 60 and they were the only ones allowed to the top of the mountain... it was busy but plenty of time... More
