The view of the statue is spectacular - nothing can prepare you - there was unfortunately a lot of waiting around to get the train two and from the statue. I would recommend not going with a tour, this way you can spend as long...More

Your Rio de Janeiro visit would not be completed if you did not visit the Christ the Redeemer! Just by traveling up with the train through the forest was an unique experience! Be there early to avoid crazy crowd and also it's better to visit...More

As probably the most well known attraction in Rio, it was high on our priority list and it didn't disappoint ! Although slightly crowded we managed to get shots of the views from each vantage point around the statue. The views were fantastic and took...More

Definitively it's during fist time at the city; if you don't want to stay at lines for hours to get tickets, buy them over internet. Best view, for me, at the very morning...less people, less hot, sun great place for lighting.

Obviously this is must see in rio but be prepared for crowds - so much so it is hard to move & difficult to get to viewing areas. A must see but not necessarily enjoyable fighting the crowds.

Must see. It's simply amazing! Go on a week day. Not as crowded. Mornings are much less crowded. However beware. Electric train breaks down fairly often. Waited 3 hours to get off the mountain this last trip.

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.
