Gopi guesthouse was great. Firstly they arranged a pick up for us from Hospet station, early in the morning. We settled in and were offered a site seeing tour of the more scattered sites which needed to be seen on a single day's ticket. This was awesome and ended with a wonderful sunset experience high on a hill overlooking the Hampi boulders. The food, smoothies and room at Gopi were good. Day two was a bicycle tour, very worthwhile with a good guide based at the main temple in the village. Kiran arranged our final transfer back to Hospet for a very early train and we paid him in advance. Unfortunately at 5:30 in the morning the Tuk-Tuk driver said Kiran had made a mistake and demanded an extra 300 Rupees. We were not happy nor in a position to argue, so we paid up.
We later wrote to Kiran to tell him this had happened and he was not happy. Beyond our expectations, not only did Kiran thank us for this information, but he arranged with a contact we had made in his restaurant,to restore the said 300 rupees, as she was going to pass through our next destination. She posted our money under our door a few days later. We were amazed and very, very touched that Kiran had gone to so much trouble. In conclusion therefore.....Gopi Guesthouse comes highly recommended and we only wish we had allowed more that two whole days there. Hampi deserves at least four days, for the wonderful sites and unique landscape.
