It's quite an impressive statue. The view of Rio is amazing, you can see 90% of the city. Be sure to go on a very sunny day so you can appreciate the full view. The way to get to the statue is a bit tiring. Train or bus, plus another bus to the top...my lasting opinion is that it remains... More

We went by a bus (public transportation) from Copacabana to the base of the mountain and took a tram to Corcovado. Take into consideration that it is quite complicated to find a place where you can buy a tram ticket for cash. It has to be by credit card or online. Be ready to find a huge crowd of people... More

If there is one thing you must do in Rio this is it - go up to Corcovado. The statue is amazing and the view - despite it being wet and windy was awesome

This is definitely a must see attraction when you come to Rio. I recommend that you do not pre-purchase tickets for this attraction. Wait until you get to the ticket office down by the cable car or up at the gift shop on the mountain. Rio often has days of rain and fog and because the Redeemer is at the... More

When in Rio? Of course. Crowded attraction. One ascends in a tramway that takes about 10 minutes through forest. The statue is smaller than I expected but the views over the beaches, bays, Copocabana and Ipenema plus downtown and, above all, Sugar Loaf, are breathtaking.

Christ the Redeemer has a great vibe!! I don't indicate people to visit when it's too cloudy, but if it's the only day you have... don't think twice... must go!! Enjoy your walking to there, might be able o see some monkeys on the way :)

You must book your ticket AHEAD of time .. get the 1st train up there .. otherwise you will be amongst a few hundred people .. the train takes 60 people up (I think) .... so if you are one of the 1st up, you have space to take photos .. a train heads up the mountain every 20 minutes.... More

Breathtaking experience reaching the base of Corcovado - amazing views - make sure you pick your times to avoid low level cloud and the crowds

If you go to Rio De Janeiro and don't see Christ the Redeemer then you didn't visit. This is a must see when traveling to Rio. The crowds can alter your pictures, so arrive early or go during an off-peak time. On the way up go sit my the window so your pictures can be amazing.
