“Yasmina is not only a fantastic traveling guide, she is passionate about Egypt. I knew I would love Egypt but she opened my eyes to an experience I would not have had from any other guide. I laughed harder, smiled brighter and stayed up as many hours as I could to drink it all in. My husband and I are looking VERY forward to returning to Egypt WITH Yasmina Ramzy and her YR Arts Planet Egypt Tour.”

“This trip was an incredible experience from start to finish. Yasmina has designed this trip as the best way to get a taste of all that Egypt has to offer – culture, the people, history, music and dance, food – in just two weeks. From Cairo to several sites in upper Egypt, we were able to participate in a wide range of insightful, educational, and incredibly fun experiences. Highly recommend this trip for travelers and dancers alike!”

Through her knowledge, connections, and Egyptian life expertise Yasmina immerses you in the rich atmosphere of this country’s intoxicating music, dance, and historic culture. Something for everyone on this trip, and so much more! I highly recommend experiencing Egypt this way.

“It was exhilarating to see real Egyptian dancers and go to the markets and experience the real thing.”

Nicola Yap

“One of my dreams was to visit Egypt and ride a camel with the pyramids in the background. Well, not only did my dream come true but the tour with Yasmina Ramzy and Egypt exceeded my expectations. The hotel in Cairo was outstanding, the tour was well organized and Yasmina made sure that each and every one of us felt safe. The food was delicious, the shopping therapeutic. We saw Bellydance shows and visited cultural sites. The communication was good. I never felt left out of anything. It was a wonderful trip.”
