“Yet another great experience”
Reviewed April 18, 2014 via mobile

Must visit this when going to Rio.
Please make sure to take the old railway instead of a private taxi or bus. This train runs through the rainforrest all the way to the top. Do not miss that experience entering this way.

“It's a must do”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

Well do you write the review here or under Corcovado ?

Cheaper than sugar loaf and possibly the better overall view due to the height but does get cloudy so you must be careful with your timing as you will be sure to have a wait to get up (ours was over an hour)

Very busy at sunset so plan accordingly

Also a bit of a crime hotspot at the bottom - be very aware of your possessions at all times

“Worth it”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

We took a van up and it took us straight to the entrance. It's such an amazing sight. You need to see it up close.

“Wow!”
Reviewed April 17, 2014 via mobile

I must say, I was impressed with every aspect of our adventure to the Christ. I enjoyed every second of it! We bought the tickets online a couple of weeks before our trip at http://www.corcovado.com.br/ingles/ it was the cheapest way to get there as the tours were super expensive. The train up to the Corcovado is an experience by itself. You get beautiful views and although it takes 20 minutes to get up there, It is worth it.

The views of rio are absolutely amazing. We went early (8:40) and the only problem is you can't take clear pictures because the sun is right infront of you.

Please, when in Rio... Go to the corcovado!!!

:)

“Another must”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

Apart from the actual statue, the views from the top are spectacular.
If one is contemplating a visit, budget to spend a lot of time and frustration getting there. The train to the top is in itself a marvel. The problem is the inability of management to handle the crowds of people wanting to go.
Try to avoid buying food and rinks at the top, the prices are outrageous!
