the tram ride with very steep climb and occasional view you see between trees and bushes of the Rio and the ocean are breath taking.the seating on the tram are mix of forward and backward.Also it is advisable to book in advance (on line) and the time you want to go.other wise you might have to wait long time to...

You can reach the peak of Corcovado hill where the large statue of the Christ stands using nothing more than your legs. The hiking trail starting in Parque Lage brings you to the peak. It is a tough hike due to steep climb at some parts but doable in less than two hours. The trail is free but to access... More

It's not everyday that you get to see a Wonder of the World so we were suitably lost for words at how magnificent Christ the Redeemer is up close! Our guide Luis(spoke 5 languages incl. English) and video man, Moura were super people - knowledgeable, kind and helpful - please use Gray Line Tours. All entry tickets were taken care... More

This icon is obviously a 'must see' . Everybody wants to and there isn't that much room up at the top. We went with an inclusive ticket which you can buy at the Tourist Information point on Copacabana beach---and others presumably---via the cogwheel railway. You get a timed ticket as this is also very busy. This is an interesting route... More

Things that may be helpful: 1) We went early (about 8:00) with a group of 30 and there was no wait for the train and the top was not crowded; 2) It is worth walking up the 200 steps from where the train lets out so that you can see other views not available at the top, and also the... More

Obviously if you are in Rio, you must go to the Corcovado. Yes, it's crowded with tourists but what do you expect. I would definitely take the train up (instead of the vans). The vans seemed to hit a bit of a traffic jam at the top and the long queue for vans is in the sun (it was very... More

Going up to see Christ is a must do in Rio, of course. Luckily, it was totally worth it. I went with the van shuttle service in Copacabana which was very convenient and easy ($R44). I got there before 8am, the posted opening time, but they didn't open the ticket booth until 8:30. Got a ticket, walked right to a... More

One of the best places I've ever been to. The drive up was full of beautiful views, and Corcovado the climax: an utterly beautiful panorama of the amazing city that is Rio. Took my breath away. Not too touristy when I was there. Amazing view, not too bustly. A singular experience.

Excellent tram service too and from the area, although there were plenty in the waiting line each service took a good number of people. Cannot do anything about the weather. Kept tripping over people lying on the floor taking photos, what is that all about!!
