We only heard later that there had been a gunfight here the month before, leaving people stranded on the mountain! Good job, as the heights involved already terrified the wife! Best cable car ride ever, though, and stunning views.

The statue itself and the view of the unique city, is marvellous. The problem is that Rio is a mass, dominated by crime and it is not worthed a visit, on this situation. Brazil and Rio never lose an opportunity of loosing an opportunity!

The Christ the Redeemer statue is the most iconic and tourist-visited site. Sadly, it overlooks a city with a high crime rate and in which many people live in slums and slum-like conditions. I’ve been to Brazil over 40 times, most on work assignments. Twice...More

Take the first train up all the way in order to avoid the crowds. If you do go later, rather take a cab to the top. Also watch the weather ... rather go when no clouds on the mountain.

We went early in the morning and found it to be without crowds. It was excellent as we were able to take lots of great pictures and access was super easy. Well worth the visit.

Yet another marvel in Rio. Unfortunately, there are often crowds here at all times but for good reason. Just a glance at the towering statue back dropping the picturesque city reminds one to put things in perspective as you feel the majesty of a higher...More

Went on an unusually clear and warm day. Excellent views of the statue, Sugarloaf and the whole vista of Rio. The whole site is well organised. Not to be missed.

Icon of Rio de Janeiro. We didn’t have a big time slot, really only an hour. Of course a cell phone photo doesn’t do it justice but we haven’t been back home to check out the good camera shots yet.

Amazing how you can see this statue out of each place of the city. Also by standing beside and realizing how big it is. It gives you a momentum of proud. I saw many iconic places in the world and still have many to see,...More
