This was another 'must do' whilst staying in Rio. We had a tour guide for the day, which included this attraction. The drive was about 15 minutes of roads that wind around and up! The actual ascent to the top was via a lift. When at the top, it was extremely busy, full of other tourists, which was expected. The... More

I'm not religious but it is impressive. The views of Rio are great, especially on a clear day. We went up in the morning before the crowds and it was well worth the extra cost.

It is spectacular. We arrived early to get the first train up the hill (8 am) - it's worth it to avoid the crowds. Locals from the favelas sell water at the stops on the way up for R2. Nice little trip through the trees. And at the top - what you've seen in photos but there for yourself. Drink... More

The tittle is no news to anybody in the world I guess, anyway I thought it would be at least a little bit easier to get there. Arriving to the ticket office at 1pm and tickets sold out until 5pm was a downer, decided to go with a van service to get to the ticket office half way up there,... More

It was a fun trip up on the train but when they tell you there's no view, believe them. I got two pictures of him and couldn't see more than 100m ahead of me. Great views below the clouds on the way up though! One tip. If your ticket is for a certain time try asking to get on the... More
