I never noticed i was staring at him for 4 hrs. He was so beautiful. It had a surreal feeling looking at him. The features are really well defined. A state of the art masterpiece. I definitely would recommend that this is a must visit...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.

Although it is really busy with tourists, you cannot have been to Rio without stopping here. The statue is impressive, the ride up and the views are just as good!

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.
