Amazing place and view, completely chaotic system for getting people in and out of the national park! We took the minibus from copacobana, we had to queue to get tickets, then at our allocated time slot, had to queue again to get on a bus, and then had to queue once we'd finished to get a bus back. Didn't spoil... More

We hiked the trail that's about 2.4 miles each way that starts near the Botanical Gardens. It's a difficult hike that can be very steep at times. There's even a chain as a helper near to the top but use your legs more than the help from the chain. Make sure you bring enough water as you'll definitely be sweating... More

In addition to the statue, you can see the bay and a panoramic view of the city. There is a restaurant and cafe at the top so you can enjoy the view after visiting the statue.

We (generally) enjoyed our visit to Corcovado. However it was off season so not as crowded as in high season. If it were I doubt we would have enjoyed it at all. The area around the statue is quite spacious but the crowds are great. Thankfully the clouds cleared and the views are spectacular. However there is great jostling for... More

You have to visit (providing the weather lets you see it) and we went up on the little train. It's obviously a very busy attraction but with a little patience you get the most amazing views and of course The Christ itself is pretty impressive. Definitely a 'must-see' in Rio.

Overwhelming and majestic!! You will not understand until you are at the foot of Cristo! And I am by no means a religious person. Best views of Rio from here!

The day we visited Corcovado, the top of the mountain was in the clouds and we got to glimpse the statue onlyfor a few brief periods. But it did make the experience more interesting and provided some very arsty photos. Bring your rain gear!

The trip to Christ the redeemer is one of the high lights of a Rio de Janeiro trip. The statue is nice but the view is amazing. Seeing al the Rio bouroughs. One should take care from the ground stations for thiefs and pickpockets. Take the train up. Prepare for (long) queuing. Not to be middes

It is a beautiful view from the statue. You can see many vistas from this vantage point. If you suffer from vertigo, it may cause some dizziness. It also can be covered in cloud at any moment, but if you wait a while it may clear.

Don't miss out on this tour, its a must see in Brazil. You can go on your own but with a Tour Guide such as Olivia, it made the entrance way easy and less stressful
