Christ Redeemer, Sugarloaf Mountain and Selarón Steps 6-Hour Tour
Great first day in Rio! We saw all the major spots in Rio in just half a day! This helped us get acquainted with the city when we first arrived. Our tour guide was so great and very informative. He spoke serval languages to accommodate the group. You can see these sites on your own but the information our guide provided us made it worth it! We were treated like first class ! Highly reccomend this tour especially if you want a nice relaxing experience have someone show you around their city!

Full Day in Rio: Christ the Redeemer, Sugarloaf, Maracana and Selaron with Lunch
You see a lot. The steps are surprisingly way cooker than in the photo. Christ the Redeemer is pretty neat with the view. It's a well balanced tour. The guide we had Adriano, was very knowledgeable, and will answer any questions for you the best he can, but he's not someone you are going to be buddies with and build hat connection along the way. He's smart though, and gets you where you need to go on time, that's what counts right? Good tour overall.

Rio in One Day Private Tour with skip the line Christ the Redeemer
Manuela showed us the must-see highlights of Rio (Christ the Redeemer, Sugar Loaf), but also some unexpected wonderful sites such as the Metropolitan Cathedral of St. Sebastian and the Selaron Staircase. Our guide and driver were professional and personable and we had plenty of time to enjoy ourselves without feeling rushed.

How to Get to the Statue of Christ the Redeemer

To reach the statue at the top of Corcovado, take the cog train or minibus from Santa Teresa. The train, which offers some spectacular views (especially if you sit on the right-hand side), leaves from the Cosme Velho train station at Rua Cosme Velho 513.

When to Get There

Opening hours vary seasonally, but the site is roughly open from 8am to 6 or 7pm. On a clear day, the views from the base of the statue include the beaches of Leblon, Copacabana, and Ipanema, Sugar Loaf Mountain, and Guanabara Bay. After dark, the statue is lit up and seems to hover over all of Rio. Expect heavy summer crowds; consider booking a skip-the-line ticket to save some time.

Visiting the Nearby Tijuca Rainforest

Regardless of how you reach the top of Corcovado, you'll travel through the Tijuca Rainforest, or Floresta Tijuca. One of the world's largest urban rain forests at 12.4 square miles (3,212 hectares), Tijuca is home to a variety of endemic Brazilian plants and animals. Before or after your visit to the statue, plan to spend some time exploring the attractions here.
