We arrived here about 11 am and there were plenty of people. The advice we read was to go to Sugar Loaf first because you'd be underwhelmed when you compared it to Corcovado. I don't agree. Sugarloaf was excellent in it's own right and we had brilliant sunshine whereas Corcovado was in cloud sporadically and we didn't get great pictures... More

Great trip and a must see monument in Brazil and the world. In the way up to the statue look out for the monkeys. I booked the trip from the hotel ibis, which was worth doing to cover any issues. Overall a good day out.

This is the tour guide you want! Alex (Alexandre Bocayuva Ghiggino), owner of tripsinrio.com was our guide in Rio for two days. I am a single mom traveling with my three children, my oldest son in a wheelchair. Alex arrived on time and was very personable and pleasant. He insisted on pushing my son and getting the wheelchair in and... More

Fantastic experience so long as you mentally prepare for a bun fight around the prime photo spots and apply some insect repellent - there were lots of small bugs with big stings around in late March. The railway up was brilliant, an experience in itself and for me way more fun than the bus. The best views are from the... More

We booked a Viator tour which was great as most of the queues are avoided - try and go early morning or late afternoon to avoid the heat of the day

Must visit this when going to Rio. Please make sure to take the old railway instead of a private taxi or bus. This train runs through the rainforrest all the way to the top. Do not miss that experience entering this way.
