Agra Village Tour

Escape the hustle and bustle of Agra and get a glimpse of rural life in India.

The villages of India hold their own distinct charm. They have a special attraction in their simplicity and traditional lifestyle. We organize your visit to the village where you experience the true Indian spirit and enjoy their daily activities and rituals. It is also a great way to get out of city and enjoy the simple life, with fresh air in beautiful surroundings.

Travelling by car, we’ll explore the countryside of Agra around 10 kilometers far from your hotel. On our way to our partner village, we’ll visit several local industries and activities as well as a school, where we will learn about education in villages. We’ll also stop for tea with a local family and then walk around the village and the surrounding area. Your guide will explain their history, religion, the challenges they face and how they fit into Indian society today. Throughout the tour, you will be able to talk with locals through our guide.
