if you want to have an overview experience of what you can see in Rio, you should visit it! From there you can see mountains, beaches, forest, houses, city center ...

The view from the top was indescribable. Magnificent and unbelievable. I didn't realize the statue was so large and the height you are in sometimes above the planes. Do not miss this amazing experience. It was worth every cent

A group of 8 recently visited the Chris Redeemer during carnival of 2017. We got very lucky because it was a clear day. Sometimes you don't get to go all the way to the top due to a very cloudy day. We used Rio Tours...More

Nice to read history at site. Very crowded on Sat. Group rode up in two vans on narrow road. Drivers fast and good. Lots of walking. Small chapel in base at back of statue is sweet. Wish I could have spent more time there. Statue...More

A train ride up top the hill (+-450m from sea level) about 25mins and enjoying refreshing air from this thick rainforest jungle . It's worth to see this spectacular views of Copacabana .

While the statue is interesting to see and it is a landmark of Rio, the crowds are huge at its base and it is difficult to find any peace and quiet to enjoy the scenery and the city views. It is worth going to the...More

Hi. We are planning a visit to Rio next March/April. Does it make a big difference in crowds if you avoid Easter. We can either come middle March or Easter weekend. I am thinking the crowds will be crazy on Easter weekend but much less two weeks before - is that right? Thank you Jill

I have no experience with visiting during Easter but what I can recommend is that you hire a private driver to ensure you arrive at the top by 8 am to buy the tickets at the counter. There were very few ppl when I arrived at... More
Hi! I'm hoping to hit both Corcovado and Sugarloaf in the same day (a long day, I know, but our time in Rio will be limited). Are there taxi stands at Corcovado or maybe near Pargue Lage that we could use to get to Praia Vermelha?

In Rio we have Uber and other sites and also many taxis in the streets. It is possible to visit both in one day, but tou have to begin early in the morning because of the crowds only in the weekends and holidays.
