Philip_S, Nov 2023
A full on but fab day from start to finish. Superb guide who took care of everyone, kept the group moving when it can be like herding cats and we got to see all the main sights. Great driver, clean modern vehicle and finished off with a traditional Brazilian bbq. Highly recommended and worth the investment.

Great 1/2 day tour of Rio
This was the perfect way to experience the "hot spots" of Rio before all the (massive) crowds. Highly recommend this half-day tour that begins early in the morning. Carioca Tropical was an excellent service provider. We were picked up right on time and the air conditioned van was clean and in good shape. Our guide, Kiko, was very knowledgeable and his english was excellent.

Q:What is the best day to visit Christ the Redeemer?
A:As one of the most-visited attractions in Brazil, Christ the Redeemer is always busy. You can typically avoid the biggest crowds by visiting on a weekday, rather than a weekend, but—no matter when you go—you won't have it all to yourself.
Q:Is it worth going to Christ the Redeemer?
A:Yes, it is well worth going to Christ the Redeemer. The statue is an icon of Rio de Janeiro and, although you can see it from all across the city, there is nothing quite like getting up close and getting a sense of its massive scale.

A:Opening hours vary, but Christ the Redeemer typically opens to visitors around 8am. You can make the steep hike up to the statue any time, but know that robberies, muggings, and violent crimes have occurred on the trail. Hike with a group, don't bring valuables, and avoid it at night.

A:No, the hike to Christ the Redeemer is not hard. Most people of average fitness can make the steep hike, but everyone should be aware of the dangers of the heat and humidity, as well as the risk of crime on the trail: Bring water, but leave valuables behind.
