Did this as part of a day trip and of course it's a very busy sight seeing destination but it was rather inspiring! It gigantic and sometimes hard to get a decent pic - will worth the visit though

Visiting Christ the Redeemer involved getting a train up the mountain something I probably didn't expect. I was disappointed when we arrived at 11.00hrs to find that all of the trains were booked until 16.20hrs. Nevertheless we got our tickets & returned after spending the...More

It is my second time visiting. I recommend buying your Tkts before hand and book the first slots. It is extremely busy up there. But it is worth the hassle.

Tried to get here earlier in the week but there was too much cloud. Had an hours wait to get up but it's thoroughly worth while. The only downside is the minefield of people trying to take photos everywhere, including on the narrow steps. You...More

Christ the Redeemer speaks for itself a stunning view and location. Only down side is the abundance of selfie sticks, which should have a worldwide ban! Getting to/from it on the other hand is a disorganised shambles. Taxi drivers refuse to take tourists 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.
