Other reviews say it all- but To pay for the train in cash, you have to cross the main road and walk 100 metres to a bank teller, who gives you a voucher, which you swap, back at the train station ,for a time slot...More

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

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.

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.
