The palace was built around 1853 for a merchant named Machado Coelho in neoclassical style. It was acquired by the imperial government in 1865 in favor of the recently married Princess Isabella and the Count of Eu; On this occasion, the architect José Maria Jacinto Rebelo underwent some transformations to the building. He also planted a hundred palm trees to give more solemnity to the access road. In 1889, the building was confiscated by the Republican government and subjected to a new restoration in 1908 under the direction of Francisco Marcellino de Souza Aguiar and landscape architect Paul Villon, in an eclectic style. After various uses, the palace belongs since 1960 to the government of the state of Rio.

Great pre tour information re our hotel pick up time. Good driver. Gisele was an efficient and helpful tour guide. It was easy for us to buy the entrance ticket with the credit card. We were one of the first to reach the Christ the Redeemer statue on a day with clear blue skies. This gave us stunning views of the surrounding area. The statue itself is very impressive and well worth a photo. The road trip up and down was also interesting. We were delivered back to our hotel in good time via a comfortable van.
We went on the early morning half day tour which promises to get you to Christ the Redeemer statue before the crowds. Well I thought it was too good to be true but we were actually the first group at the entrance to the park and therefore the first ones to get to the top. And it was well worth it to get those amazing views and pictures without hords of others blocking your shot. Our guide and fellow travelers were great too. The small group mixed well, would highly recommend to others.
This was great, we were the first people in the morning to visit Christ the Redeemer, it opened 8.00am so we had pictures without any crowds. Great informative guide. This trip is highly recommended.

The Christ statue visit was wonderful despite the bad weather. We were just shocked to be told by the tour guide that our tour was over immediately afterwards that there were no Other 6 Attractions for us to participate in, so we were dropped at our hotel! Something is wrong with the organisation as we were also only picked 30 min after the nominated time.
What an Excellent Tour!! A great way to see the City of Rio!! I strongly suggest the 7AM tour - as it gets to Cristo at 8AM for opening. Within 1 hour, it was very busy and hard to take pictures. Bring cash, as the shops at the top have internet issues. The shop at the bottom is overpriced. We had Katia Kathy as our Guide. She was an incredible delight!! Definitely takes pride in her job. And was always available to assist in picture-taking. Knowledge about the drive up/back to Cristo, and available for questions.
We enjoyed this excursion to Corcovado very much. Our guide, Kiko, was ready for us as we arrived to the pickup point 10 minutes early bonus points! and provided us an enjoyable, descriptive trip to the mountain. We had plenty of time to see the statue before the clouds and the crowds rolled in. Definitely the highlight of our trip to Rio.
