My son and I went in the morning. The trip was worthwhile. But taxis overcharge on the trip back. Overall a lovely experience and a not to be missed trip

Quite an ordeal, but worth it. Recommend comfortable shoes, plenty of water and patience. There is no quick way to see this

Visited last year (2015) and was in awe. Visited again in December 2016 and it's clear that a lot in time for the Olympics. What was an old disused hotel is now a visitors centre. Don't expect much history information here, it serves two purposes; ticket selling and a massive shop of over priced tat. Last year it was a... More

This is everything we imagined it would be and so much more. Views are amazing despite it being very busy and crowded. There are a few ways to get here - on a big tour, public bus or the train - absolutely choose the train - it is a great way to get to the top!

It was a very misty day when I visited and while waiting for the train up I was warned there might not be visibity. Luckily the mist fell away just long enough to get a good view. The size of this statue is huge and I imgine the views on a clear day would be great

Absolutely wonderful views. We had a great day out arriving quite early in the morning to miss the queues which was worth the extra effort.

Have been both on organised tour and on own. Oddly when on tour the queue for train was very long, and we were able to jump it with pre booked tickets. Much quieter in an afternoon when we did it on our own, so no problem queue. Such a good experience, would have been happy to wait. The views!!! A... More

Do not skip it even if you have just a day or few hours in Rio de Janeiro. Get tram to Corcovado and you will be rewarded with a fantastic view. One of my first picks, including the Sugar Loaf.

On the day of our visit there were clouds covering the mountain on and off, we did manage to get a few good pictures of the statue, but not any of Rio itself. The one down side for me was the number of people, the area around the statue is not very large, and everyone wants a photo with the... More
