- Took an Uber from the center of Copacabana (Posto 3) to the bottom of the train station, at 8.20am on a Sunday. It cost 16 BRL (4.5 dollars) to get there, in 12 minutes.

Need to get there 45 minutes before your scheduled tram. We were there on a weekday afternoon. The top was very crowded. Had to wait an hour to get the tram back down. We didn’t do Sugarloaf, but maybe it would’ve been a better choice.
You have some options, take the train or van (car for almost 10 person).
You can buy the ticket on line, but you schedule your visit. It's recommended to buy 1 day advance at least.
Bring you camera and you will have unforgettable memories.
Instead of taking the overpriced tours we did this on our own and it cost us 20% 0f the tour operators costs. A great tram trip to the top. Lovely views of the city. For those afraid of heights have no fear my wife felt...More
The whole experience was horrible. Arrived at the bottom of the hill. Told the wait was 3 hours for the single track train that goes to the summit. The alternative is a minibus so we got that instead. It stops about 3/4 of the way...More
Santa Teresa is a bohemian enclave hosting many local artists’ studios. The narrow, winding streets of this neighbourhood were revitalised years ago, and visitors can now stroll through this area to view magnificent mansions dating back to the late 19th and early 20th century. A highlight not miss: Museu Chacará do Céu, a former mansion turned museum which houses works by prominent Brazilian modern artists.

I am not 100% sure as to what is included as our tickets were purchased by a guide in advance. I know that these have to be exchanged for the train tickets on arrival at the station and then allocated a time slot (the trains run roughly every 20 mins).
Best advice is to get their as early as possible as there is a LOT of waiting around between the trains and it can be very hot - similarly if you leave it later in the day the viewin platforms are crowded.

It’s best to have a guide the whole time, we were picked up at the airport, then the next day picked up by the same person and taken for a whole day tour. We used Blumar Turismo,ask for Dirk Boese, he was excellent and knew all the tips and got us to all the important sights. We haven’t gone out at night,just around the corner for a meal. We had 3 nights here, actually you could do it in 2. Guide will drop us back at the airport to fly out.diffcult to get around without a guide.
