I was recently in Rio for the Olympics and had one day to do a bit of exploring. I wanted to go to Christ the Redeemer because I knew I probably wouldn't return to Brazil and at least I could then say I was there. I found out from some people to get there no later than 7:30am and I... More

Biggest attraction of Rio, Christ the Reedemer. Before the visit I was excited about it. It was disappointment. The statue and view is very spectacular but the circumstances are terrible. It was too crowded and we spent more time in the queue that we stay at the "top".

What a truly amazing experience to be above the clouds and in the clouds. Nothing less than a stellar experience.

Don't buy tickets on line - we apparently did something wrong and on one ticket and when we went to redeem the vouchers at the bus embarkation point they insisted the whole party re-buy their tickets too (paypal have reimbursed thank goodness). Lady in ticket booth most unpleasant and unhelpful. Other than that we really enjoyed it. Convenient bus took... More

Excellent trip up to this attraction . I would recommend a local guide to advise and miss the Q's. If not sit on the left of the funicular tram with your back to the hill for a better view going up and down .

This is a must see in Rio. The statue is very impressive and the view of the Rio harbor (one of the wonders of the world), is amazing!! Try to pick a clear day for the best view of the harbor, but I really think there is a smog issue in Rio versus it being overcast. Go early in the... More

From the Corcovado you have a nice view, if the weather is clear, of the south area of Rio, including the Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas.

Totally worth it! Beautiful view can see the whole city, we took the vans up to it, which was probably quicker than taking the train which had a long line, only downside is it is really crowded, but still fun
