we had to wait a little for the train, and it was quite crowded, we visited late afternoon/early evening. Views were spectacular, but overall I preferred Sugar Loaf.

It was on the bucket list for me. It's impossible to imagine the size of the statue. The views from the top are breathtaking. Well worth a visit but be prepared to stand and stand and stand. The queues were diabolical as was the heat...More

Is a beautiful view from Rio, but remember to go by train. You can buy the ticket on almkst any postoffice in Brazil. It makes it another experience and it is way better than go there by car.

In Rio we have Uber and other sites and also many taxis in the streets. It is possible to visit both in one day, but tou have to begin early in the morning because of the crowds only in the weekends and holidays.
