Best solution to get there is to go to a square in Ipanema beach where you can buy tickets and the bus takes you up all the way. When you get to the park entrance you need to take another bus to the top which...More

This is a must-see place in Rio. The statue and the views of the city are breathtaking. There are two options to get to the Corcovado: vans and train but the train is my favorite!

Impressive is the best word to describe this. It is for sure a "must see", with terrific views and of course the statue itself.

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.

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
