Cristo Redentor On Corcovado Reviews & Ratings

  • It was just so emotional being in this place. Words can hardly describe. And we had an amazing trust worthy tour cab guide who took us around. We were bused up the hill by the Park. We did not have to climb. It was rainy and cloudy which prevented us from getting the best pics but we knew that ahead of going there as we did check the weather but we decided to go anyway. Amazing experience. Amazing! The Helipad is also just below with more breathtaking views

  • It was exciting taking the train up to Christ the Redeemer. The intermittent views as you go up leave you wanting more. Once you get to the top the view is breathtaking. You see all of Rio and the statuesque Christ that exudes peace and love. I wonder how they managed to get that up there? People are just everywhere taking photos of the beautiful city from a 360 degrees perspective. Then, you see some laying down on the floor to get the full Christ into their photo frame. Quite fun to watch people dodging each others photo ops. Great place to visit for a peaceful experience of Christ the Redeemer. This is a known staple for Rio. Definitely a must see!🙏

  • Don't let low visibility stop you from going to see this amazing place. It has its on appeal in low visibility. Seeming mysterious and enchanting in the mist. It was a great experience. The train car up is quick but if you get notion sickness it might be a bit rough. Just depends. There's a nice cafe/restaurant at the top and you can enjoy a quick lunch or dinner. Most definitely worth the trip.

  • I have to give the 5 star to this wonder of our planet. The statue is beautiful it gives you a special feeling when you see it. The views? Breathtaking. It’s a must in your life. The negatives bits super crowded no matter what time you’re going. Whoever tells you ooo it’s better to go in the morning or in the sunset it’s not true it doesn’t matter it’s always crowded at least in high season. The insects put some insect protection and also sunscreen to make it more comfortable. Now go and enjoy this wonder of the world and unique experience

  • We walked the whole way up. Our Uber dropped us if at the bottom by retail van drivers. It was a 7km walk, not too steep. We walked the road, not the back trail. We saw monkeys, and Christ from down below with beautiful tree frames. It was beautiful. We even walked the trail up from the visitor's center. That saved us a but of money and we meet a few fun people on the trail. We got there at noon so it was pretty crowded by then, but it's a massive tourist destination so u can't be alone.
