About
Hampi is one of the most beautiful and evocative of all historical sites in south India. It was established as the seat of the Vijayanagara Empire in the mid 14th century, a time when art and architecture flourished. The city was conquered by Sultanate troops in CE 1565, pillaged for six months, and abandoned. People however continued to live in the region and worship continued in few temples. The sprawling heritage site encompasses several village settlements; the presence of these human settlements makes Hampi a living heritage site. We believe that people living in these settlements are an essential part of the site and therefore anything and everything rooted by local communities add to the cultural significance of the place. Explore Hampi is an attempt at building a tourism venture that makes locals stakeholders in its responsible development. We want to promote Hampi as a living heritage site; showcase the unique culture and beauty of the region along with the ruins of Hampi.

If there were more stars, I would give all of them to Vinny. He is proud of his heritage and loves land he lives in. And that makes him the best person to see Hampi with! My friends and I have been to Hampi 4 years in a row and yet, Vinny has managed to make the trip a little different everytime. Going with Vinny has another advantage because he also knows the right non-touristy places to eat, watch the sun rise and set, if one wants to experience. Plan your Hampi trip with Vinny soon!

Best and friendliest Tuctuc driver and tourguide we could have imagined for this trip! He showed us special places where nearly nobody was and also the famous ones and explained us everything! He was super chilled and relaxed. Whenever we wanted, he droped us at our homestay and picked us up again! Just write him or call him, he will be there. ‪+91 94487 94050‬. Also when we arrived at hampi at 4 am we were very lost and he just came super nice, do you need help? We are super thankful for this adventure we had here and vinny made it just perfect! We didnt had to plan or think where to go next, he made the best out of our time!

You can call him or write on whats app, also before you arrive to hampi he will pick you up!

wonderful days in Hampi with Rajaesh R. This was an unforgettable experience! Knowledgeable guide Rajaesh created a super inspiring time and showed me many beautiful and interesting places. He is a never ending source of interesting stories around Hinduism and Hampis history! He is able to answer any question and finds solutions for any problem. Highly recommend!!!

Had a great tour of Hampi thanks to our Guide Mr. Guru Raj. ( +91 94807 26462 ). Apart from sharing stories of historical and religious significance of different places in Hampi his good local knowledge of timings and best places to view , shop , eat greatly elevated our trip experience. He was sensitive to our preferences and went out of his way to give best service. His tour plan enabled us to cover most places in Hampi in 2 days . Value for money. Highly recommend his services.

we explore every place. Our guide, a rikshaw man called Jeelan, explained us everything in detail before we reached each site.
It was a very good experience. He also took us to other sites outside of Hampi and also made us discover superb panoramas! His prices are very democratic, he is really friendly, very conscientious and he really knows Hampi. I really recommend him!

Mine and my sister's recent two-day trip to Hampi was amazing! We had a great time exploring the historical place and the experience was worthwhile, driving around the town with Vinny (our Rider). His auto was clean, and safe and had a great music system. Vinny is very friendly, funny, and always smiling, making our trip perfect! All the eating joints, and shopping areas he took us were simply the best. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking for a reliable, flexible, and fun driver.

Next time we visit Hampi again undoubtedly Vinny will be our Tour Rider :)

I will keep this short and sweet.
Two day tour of Hampi with Mr Bhanu Prakash was superb.
Communication was swift.
Punctual, highly knowledgeable, informative and entertaining guide.
He also arranged a pick up from Goa to Hampi and from Hampi to Hubli airport with his driver Bashir.
All services were excellent value for money.
Look no further.

Hampi is a beautiful place with lots of history. Try to visit all the main spots and avoid seeing everything, just for the sake of visiting. Plenty to walk so don't strain yourself. Network connectivity is a problem. Ask for wifi when entering a restaurant or hotel....makes life easier or carry plenty of cash. Main expenditure is on transport. For food definitely visit the mango tree near Virupaksha temple. We thoroughly enjoyed the food. Cycle travel is exerting and terrain is not too great, so better to avoid. We communted via auto to all major attractions. It was extremely sunny when we visited last week during Diwali. Any amount of sunscreen and an umbrella didn't work. We got tanned pretty badly. To enjoy the trip thoroughly, visit only the major attractions. Vithala temple is a must visit. Virupaksha temple is beautiful. The museum is ok, not too great. Major ruins to visit are the elephants stable, clocktower, Lotus temple. Coracle boat ride in Sanapur is a lovely experience. Must try especially after 4 in the evening.
