Must see site. Avoid when it's cloudy, or vacation time (it can get really crowded). If you're interested in going up by train, buy the tickets at internet in advance, which can help you avoid long waiting lines.

First off this was like the only thing I wanted to do in Rio lol. To make things cheaper, we took the bus in Rio from Leblon to Corcovado, which seemed like a pretty direct bus ride and I think we only had one transfer. We did take an Uber on the way back after stopping at the infamous Ecadaria... More

You take a tram up the side of the mountain to get to top. Once there I encountered hundreds of tourists fighting to get that perfect picture of them and the statue with a selfie stick. Lol. It was very crowded you could not walk. Be careful of pickpockets, this is a perfect environment for them due to the very... More

We made a booking at our hotel Sheraton Rio Leblon to visit Corcovado (Christ the Redeemer) on the afternoon of 6th January 2017. We were collected from our hotel with another three couples in a Grey Line coach and driven to a side street where we sat in the coach for more than half an hour with no guide or... More

It takes a long time to get through the queues and then the ride up is in a mini-bus that drives very fast for a narrow windy road. There is a huge crowd at the top. Views are great but there are better views from the roads within the Tijuna forest

It is the symbol of the city and the view itself is amazing so of course its a must-see, but get ready for crowds of people everywhere and long cues for the cableway up and down as well.

As a tour guide in Rio, people always ask me if I only had a few hours in town and had to choose one of the attractions of this city, where I'd go, I'd always recommend the Christ Statue on top of the Corcovado mountain. Rio is a city that's grown between the blue Atlantic and the green mountains, and... More

The iconic tourist attraction in Rio de Janeiro. Easy to reach by the train, but crowds of people so try to go early in the morning. Fantastic panoramic views.

Yes, finally I get to meet Christ the Redeemer. Its a bit smaller that I imagine it would be but what a great feeling. Iconic, majestic and peaceful all in one. And I am not a Christian! Greetings and Blessing.
