We took the 9:20 am train and there were already a crowd of people at the top. Make sure you book your train ahead of time. There was already a two hour wait if you didn't prebook. There are two ways to get to the top; the railway (I recommend) or the van system that will pick you up at... More

This was our first stop on our memorable tour of Rio and it was majestic. Although I had seen the statute in pictures, movies and the Olympics hundreds of times, it is so much more special in person. We went early and missed the crowds, making the visit even better. Indeed, that night when we left Rio on our cruise... More

This a must see when in Rio. The day we went it was cloudy and a little chilly, but even with the clouds there was still a rather decent view of the city. The train ride up the mountain was actually fun and at certain points, provides wonderful views of the city. Again it was really crowded and foggy so... More

Because it is 750 metres to the feet of the statue it is high to start with and you get views for miles. The statue itself is very big and you have to lie down to take pictures. It is a must see if you go to Rio. Again go early as it gets very crowded up there and it... More

It's a nice place to visit there in Rio de Janeiro, but you should not go by van unless during the morning. Queue out and inside the park are very, but very, long-termed. You could take a bus and the train, then saving a lot of time.

We hiked thru the woods and it was a nice way to do it. It was hard at times as the trail was steep. But there was monkeys and beautiful sights. The statue was also a spectacular sight as well as the view from up there. It's worth going there.

Best views you will find in Rio and must be done on any trip here. Christo himself is looking good but a bit smaller than TV would have you believe. We took the tram up/down and really enjoyed the views and journey through the forest. Pricey though...74 real.

If you're lucky enough to get a clear blue sky day, you're in heaven. The city views of Rio are amazing and inexplicably beautiful

The views from the atop the mountain are other worldly, however the day I went it was hoards of tourist. If I were to return again I would hike up from Parque Lage, but that's not to say that you shouldn't go. It is unimaginable how large this statute is until you see him from the bottom of his feet.

Great view, over the entire city, and the Christ Redemptor is a thing to see, but we found 73BRL/person to go up a bit pricey.
