We went during the low season and it was thus not crowded at all. Make sure you sit in front in the cable car to get the best view. From there you are able to have a 360 degree view of the city. Copacabana beach and the bay view is breathtaking from up there. It is beautiful!

If you want a tour guide in Rio you could do worse that select Urban Adventures. Julia is a local and knows the place "like the back of her hand". If I ever need a guide in Rio Urban Adventures would be my first port of call.
