Our tour to the historic ruins of Hampi and the surrounding areas was made mesmerizing by our guide Mr.Rajavalli. His knowledge about the place is immense and he takes you around the places at your leisure. With him around, we could immerse in the era of a time long gone; but we lived through it. The 2 days that we spend there, we were transported back to time. There are soo many monuments and structures around Hampi that they have their own stories to tell. When you visit such places you require a guide who knows the details to the fullest. Mr. Rajavalli is such a person. Without him, those monuments would have remained just a piece of stone. Also, what is the treasure that we carry back from such places other then memories and photographs? Our guide, helped us with some excellent photographic locations which I am sure will remain ever with us. Mr. Rajavalli can be contacted on +91 8073874131 and/or 9480755411.

I feel 2-3 days is required if Hampi is to be explored at length. (Add travel days to it). We stayed at Hospet (Royal Central Orchid Kireeti). Food at the hotel is excellent and so is the pool. Hampi is day exploration with lot of walk around, thus a cool time at the pool is required once you are back at the hotel. Generally days are hot at Hampi and night's cool. Vehicle will be required when you move from Hospet to Hampi. Also, sunscreen protection cream might be useful. Though there is nothing much to do in Hospet after sunset, but still going around the downtown area (bus stand, market) might be interesting.

Overall, not only an excellent trip but a memorable one too!!!!!

Hampi was a different and amazing experience, a literal walk down history. The ruins are well preserved, and tell the story of life in the 14th century. The intricate stone work, the enormous boulders and the elaborate architecture, all mesmerizes you. We went with a pre-teen and teen, and the entire family enjoyed the trip.

I won't consider Hampi as a laid back vacation, but a fun and informative educational tour. We spent 2 full days exploring the ruins and climbing the mountain. To experience the site, you really need to hire a guide, and try to hire an official one. They all have the blue and white uniforms. Ours was Rajavali (80738741311 and 9480755411), who was both professional and well versed. He was able to answer the many questions asked by the kids and his picture book of little details he shows at each location is like a treasure trove of information. We appreciated his punctuality and flexibility to work on our ever changing schedule. We ended up hiring him for the whole trip of 2 days. I'd whole heartedly recommend him to friends and family.

I would venture out to say that Hampi is the Rome of India, it gives the similar feeling of being transported to age old land. Would not recommend it for smaller kids, but anyone over the age of 12 should be able to enjoy. Also, really appreciated was the tourist friendly nature of the locals. We visited during the middle of June and I think it was a perfect time with reduced crowds and sunny skies.

We were 5 of us who visited Hampi and we had a very good time. Our stay was at Vijayshree resort and we did site seeing on 2 days. On one evening we went to Tungabadra Dam and returned. The next day we availed the services of a guide who accompanied us from 9 in the morning till about 4 in the evening. Our guide's name was Mr Raja ( mobile 94807 55411) . He was an extremely courteous and nice person and explained in detail in English( we wanted English) about all the places he took us to. For lunch he took us to a small place but the food was really good and served very fast too. I would definitely recommend the services of Mr Raja. We had our car and we followed him on his bike.

Please make sure that you are hiring a guide to understand the history. Our guide Mr. Raju was a treasure trove of information about the history of each place. Very well mannered, polite and enthusiastic. His contact details 80738741311 and 9480755411

Bhanu is a top guide : with the stories he tells you in a perfect english, he make the old Vijayanaghar civilization back to life. In Bhanu's company you will imagine this wonderful city of Hampi full of life and treasures, but you will also learn a lot about the Hindu mythology and understand better many of the mysterious statues and monument of Hampi.

Many thanks to Bhanu for all the knowledge he is enthusiast to share !

One of the best historical sites of India. Monuments tells history and glory of India. Though many beautiful buildings are destroyed in invasion of vijaynagar, the remains are good enough to get glimpses of glorious past and riches of India pre 17th century.

A must visit place when in india or Karnataka.
