Fun going up the mountain on the small cogwheel train and amazing view. The statue is so imposing and quite elegant. Have never seen so many mini statuettes of Schmidt the Redeemer.

This was a busy landmark but the organisation of the ticket purchase and transport was great. We did not have to wait longer than 5 minutes to get to the top well worth a visit if you are in Rio

We took the bus to go up to Corvovado Christ the Redeemer. At the top of the hill, you can overlook the city, the Guanabara Bay, and the Tijuca park. Coming down, you can take a train.

The little train ride is fun and there is a lift or stairs and escalators to the summit. Amazing views at the top and lots of souvenier shops if you take the stairs back down to the train. A lovely morning!

You can really climb up corcovado all year round. November is already mid-spring, and days should be hot and sunny. But you have to look out weather sites to avoid occasional rain, which is highly impredictable.

Sorry for delay in responding. I would go on your own, in my opinion there is no need for a guide, the views are what you are going for. It's a short taxi ride to sugar loaf. If you use uber it's very cheap
