The Christ Statue is on the top of 2,100-foot high Corcovado mountain. It is a Rio landmark that is known around the world. Once there, you have an unparalleled view of the city of Rio de Janeiro as well as the statue itself.

Unfortunately, the tip of the mountain and the statue are frequently covered by the clouds for several hours a day (even in the summer!). Thousands of people, without a savy guide, waste their time and money arriving at the top of Corcovado and are not able to see either the statue or the city.

At Rio Private Tours we can’t guarantee the weather, but we can maximize your chances of arriving at the summit of Corcovado at the right time. How do we do that? Careful logistics. We monitor cloud coverage at Corcovado from the moment we pick you up from your hotel. If it is not covered, we visit it right away. If it is cloudy, we visit other sites first and continue to monitor the statue from other parts of Rio in order to visit this important site at the just the right moment of the day. As you know, timing is everything.
