There isn’t much to expect here, it’s exactly as it says. you get to the meeting point and you’ll find people waiting for you, the van takes you all the way up to Christ the Redeemer, entry ticket is included. They give you enough time to enjoy the views, take some pictures and do a little shopping. The best part is that they have many vans and you can choose anyone to return with (in case you want to return early or stay a bit late).
Get ready for long queues regardless of buying tickets online. The process is ridiculously complex. You buy online, but you need to print it in an administrative office (?!). Then you need to sign a paper and validate your ticket. Just scan from the phone app, like the rest of the world. The view is nice, that's it.
Nothing wrong with this service here, everything went as expected. It's just that Christ the Redeemer is a bit hyped. The views are stunning and the place really connects to religious people, but in reality, you'll find yourself in the middle of a picture-taking crowd. It's The Walking Dead with cameras.
I highly recommend to go and visit it. The price you pay for this tickets is nothing comparing with the value you get when you are there. The views over Rio are breathtaking and it is an amazing experience to be there.
I mean, come to Rio de Janeiro and not visit Christ the Redeemer. Well you just have to visit Christ the Redeemer. Beautiful place, perfect view of Rio de Janeiro.
