If in Rio one has to go there. Get view. Impressive statue. A bit crowded but one should expect that.

It's amazing seeing this statue from the ground, but when you see it up close it is marvelous! Def go early in the morning to beat the rush because the viewing area isn't very large up top.

Very imposing statue. Though not Christian, I admired the determination of the people who build it. Many tourists there trying to take that famous picture with the Christ in behind but I think it's ok as it's world famous. Excellent view from above, with especially...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
