Iconic landmarks of Rio with a vibrant & knowledgeable guide
This is a day long tour of the most iconic landmarks in Rio de Janeiro. Our tour guide Priscylia was a wonderful host that possessed a terrific sense of humour coupled with superb language skills. The buffet lunch was delicious and the vehicle utilized for transport was comfortable with a skilled driver. This was a thoroughly enjoyable tour that I would recommend to all visitors to this great city.

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!

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.
