Rural tourism, in every country, plays a key role in removing stress which is mainly experienced by urban residents. The article investigated, from a multidisciplinary collaborative approach, the motives of visit intention of tourists and their satisfaction. This study presents an understanding of tourist motives of visit intention and attempts to extend the theoretical and empirical evidence on the causal relationships among the motivations, perceived value and satisfaction. The article proposed a theoretical framework based on previous literature. The research model investigates the relevant relationships among the constructs by using multiple regression analysis. The findings suggest that the key motives of visit intentions were relaxation, socialisation and learning. Moreover, the perceived value obtained by tourists positively and significantly impacts the tourist satisfaction. Furthermore, male and female respondents reported significantly different motives to visit intentions. Male respondents placed significantly higher importance on ‘socialisation’ and perceived value than did the females. In the end, implications, limitations and future research scope of the study are presented.
