Overview
Beat the crowds—and the heat—on a Rio de Janeiro sightseeing tour that visits the Statue of Christ the Redeemer in the early morning, before the majority of other visitors arrive. After you’ve ticked off one of the New7Wonders of the World, travel between top Rio sights in air-conditioned comfort, therefore avoiding the hassle of navigating a new city alone.

Do not get the train, get a taxi up instead and buy your ticket. Arrive early to beat the crowds and travel in low season to avoid 40+ temperatures 2 hour waits.
