A must see place to go to, go as early as possible to avoid the queues, take in all the beautiful scenery around you also and admire the statue.

If you are in Rio should take the Tramway Bondinho in portuguese to reach the closest place to the sky.

The ride to the site is beautiful (through Tijuca park, and the site is managed by Park authorities. Excellent (high quality but pricey) gift shop at foot of the monument. Not much at the top except to admire the wonderful views

Lonely planet recommends a hike up the mountain, this is a very difficult and dangerous trail with some parts when you have to climb up rocks etc. The views from the top of Corcovado are amazing and Christ the Redeemer is also a spectacular monument...More

The tour was well organised with a very good tour guide. It included an excellent meal at a very good restaurant. As it includes a tour of Rio also, it saves time on doing an extra tour.

We were lucky not to have booked our tickets in advance. The sun was really shy when we got there. If you buy tickets in advance you are bound to get there even if you don’t want to. Otherwise good organisation. A little crowded at...More

More impressive than any postcard - the most tourists I saw on my whole trip but still very accessible - I wish I had hiked up rather than the train - the media tell us it's unsafe but not really - just be vigilant as...More

A nice place to get views of Rio IF the clouds are not there. It sure seemed that there was cloud cover most of the times. The trip up the mountain is pleasant and convenient. Once you are there, you will find an impressive statue...More

Get up early to catch the first train to the top. Ask your hotel to advise. We got there at 10 am and you could not get a spot to take a picture from any angle. The space around the foot of the statue is...More

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
