There are three main options to get up to Cristo Redentor: funicular, minibus, or walking. It very well may be than on most days, given the crowds, the easiest way to get up there is to walk! It certainly is cheeper. For about $1USD (in...More

We went as part of an organised day tour with a guide. This was so worth it to skip the queues in buying tickets and gathering more information on the construction of the statue and of the surrounding area. An amazing sight to see.
