The sights were amazing,however we arrived at 1 to find it the tram wasn't running until five thirty. So we were coerced into paying an extra 30 reals each to take a bus up. Once up you have you to take another bus which wasn't running until 3. So an hour wait. We were then again offered to skip the... More

This was a challenging hike, I read previous reviews before we did this and I was not quite prepared. The hike is mostly uphill. I highly recommend doing it in the morning as we went at 1pm and it was so hot. Bring lots of water. We got to the top and could not even really enjoy the hike because... More

the highest peak of Tijuca mountain. From the entrance you can either take the lift or stairs. Standing tall wide open arms protecting and welcoming visitors in Rio.

Ok so this is a bucket list item and the views are incredible, but once you hit the top its simply a case of wanting to come back down again. Doesn't have the magical feel as there are simply too many tourist taking selfies too.

It's packed, but the views are in matched. You can see Cristo from anywhere in Rio. When you are up there you feel like you can see all of Rio. Make sure you stop in the chapel under Cristo before you go.

Christ the Redeemer is a must see in Rio - amazing to see the city from such an iconic place. There are a few different options to visiting him - we chose the tram and hadn't booked online. I would recommend booking online as we waited two hours to get a tram up, not realising there was such limited capacity.... More

The most beautiful view of Rio! There are 3 possibilities to the Corcovado: dedicated bus, a special train or climb along this "mountain" (approx. 2h30). I do recommend the train

Thank you my Lord for making me able to visit this monument. Never have feel so lucky in my life. The statue is gorgeous. The view breath holding.

We queued!!! There must be an alternative to our tour. We spent about 1 hour in 40oC waiting for a mini bus to take us up to the summit. Once at the top the space is very limited and you just take what photos you can and thats it. Having said that its a must do in rio.
