Do you suggest going independently or with a tour?

That depends. If you're solo, you might want to be in the company of those on a group tour. But you can easily go to both Corcovado and Sugarloaf on your own by using public transportation or taxis.

Sightseeing tours sometimes get mixed reviews, however. See post #11 in the link below for a report on one such tour.

Long lines in extreme heat waiting for transport vans and for the Corcovado train, along with train car malfunctions, are making visits to Christ the Redeemer difficult for tourists:

I second #4. And early = 8am. At 9am, you'll see lines.

This is during high season, of course. In low season, everything is a lot easier.
