Check the weather in advance and go early. Ideally on the first train at 8:20 to avoid big crowds. Just stunning! Can't go to Rio without visiting it!

The statue is just as wonderful as the post cards show and the funky funicula up to see it is fun, but when we reached the top, we were overrun by selfie-takers with many lying on the (filthy) ground to look up -- made walking...More

As one of the main attraction in Rio, we visited the Christ Statue using the tram. We had to wait one hour for our tour, there are so many people queuing. There is no nice coffee shop, bar next to the station so you can...More

You must visit while you are in Rio. Be prepared for huge queues though. Make sure there is no fog or rain because the day tours are cancelled.

Great aerial view of the city. Wonderful ride altogether with the "bondinho" in the middle of the jungle.

We went midweek, so the queues for tickets and lifts were not so long. The actual platform is quite large, so those who don't like heights, like me, can feel comfortable.

Marvellous ! I do recommend the "bondinho", great service, great sight all the way, and the nicest (safest) way to get there. I also tried the crowded vans shuttle service which is quite messy to me, frequent long queues, and uncomfortable. (lot of curves, bumpy...More

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

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.
