Pick a day with clear weather.

We went here as a one day trip from one of the cruise ship. The place is great, but make sure to go there a day with clear weather - if not it is pretty much a waste of time.

Yes it's crowded but what do you expect!! It was a simply wonderful experience. We arrived early and walked straight on to the train (09:20). It was cloudy so our tickets were stamped to advise limited visibility; guess that technique avoids the demands for refunds! However, forecast was good so we were pretty confident it would clear. And it did.... More

While crowded at the top, it's worth the trip. Purchase your ticket in advance and enjoy the 20 minute cog train ride to the top. It is very easy to visit this attraction on your own, so don't waste your money on a tour guide.

Really enjoyed the train ride to the top but it was crowded and there were queues as most tickets had been booked. The views on the way up are sensational and the statue is wonderful. Took some fantastic photos of Sugarloaf mountain. Downside is the stupidity of those standing on the walls and the sheer crowds, many of whom lie... More
