Booked our tour from the Florida Windsor hotel. The tour guide was excellent and well organized. We arrived by tour van. Easy trip up the mountain and then escalators, elevator to pedestal. Amazing outdoor views of Rio and this statue up close.

This is of course a famous Rio landmark. It's a bit of effort to get to the top. A long way up to the visitor center and then vans to the statue. But the statue and the views are just spectacular, so it's certainly a...More

Few years ago we visited the Christ statue as a part of a organised tour. The statue is very impressive and the views from it are stunning but the heat and the crowds have spoiled the experience. This time we decided to see it from...More

We visited late in the afternoon and stayed past sunset. It was crowded. The statue itself is stunning, as are the views. There are two restaurants near the top, with excellent views. We took the train up, it leaves every 20 minutes, they are very...More

Once you go through the slow process of getting up to the main attraction you are going to enjoy of great views. There are many gift shops and a "fast" food restaurant. The view is amazing and breath-taking. Definitely recommend visiting this attraction. Did this...More

Hi. We are planning a visit to Rio next March/April. Does it make a big difference in crowds if you avoid Easter. We can either come middle March or Easter weekend. I am thinking the crowds will be crazy on Easter weekend but much less two weeks before - is that right? Thank you Jill

I have no experience with visiting during Easter but what I can recommend is that you hire a private driver to ensure you arrive at the top by 8 am to buy the tickets at the counter. There were very few ppl when I arrived at... More
Hi! I'm hoping to hit both Corcovado and Sugarloaf in the same day (a long day, I know, but our time in Rio will be limited). Are there taxi stands at Corcovado or maybe near Pargue Lage that we could use to get to Praia Vermelha?

In Rio we have Uber and other sites and also many taxis in the streets. It is possible to visit both in one day, but tou have to begin early in the morning because of the crowds only in the weekends and holidays.
