At the 2,300-foot (700-meter) summit, find yourself in the presence of the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue. Listen as your guide explains the history of the statue, constructed in 1931 from concrete and sandstone and named one of the Seven Wonders of the World in 2007. The statue's armspan is 98 feet (30 meters,) and it stands 130 feet (39 meters) tall. Spend half an hour admiring the statue and taking photos of the panoramic views of Rio.

This excursion is a self-guided experience that provides you ticketed access to both the Corcovado Mountain and the Christ the Redeemer statue. I went midday on a weekday and the statue was PACKED! Add the massive crowd to the rolling high-altitude fog, and youll understand why youll need to be patient when it comes to quality photo opportunities of the statue. Id recommend at least two hours for this excursion to ascend the mountain by cable car longer if youre opting to hike maneuver around the crowds to take in the sights and posted facts and snap awesome pictures! All in all, the excursion is worth the price as roundtrip transportation was included from my hotel. With the transportation included, youre treated to an impromptu tour of the city both going and coming from the attraction. Just remember to pack your patience, and some water.

Unfortunately it was cloudy that afternoon. I would recommend this tour be taken in the morning before the clouds roll in. The statue is very impressive, and imposong. No views because of the clouds.
