I booked the Exclusive Dominican Cigar Tour - Tabacalera de Garcia & La Flor Dominicana with Gray Line since I was staying in Punta Cana and needed transportation to La Romana. I was promptly picked up in an air conditioned van at my hotel. By the way, this is not so common in DR. Most tour operations use open air... More

I thought I knew what went into cigar making holy cow, this tour sure changed my mind!! This tour is different from the the LaFlor Dominica Cigar tour because it only allows a few people on Tuesdays and Thursdays to visit the Tabacalera de Garcia cigar factory. Our guide was very knowledgeable about all the phases of the factory and... More

While recently staying in Punta Cana, I decided to follow a friend's advice and visit the largest hand-made cigar factory in the world. Am I a cigar smoker? Not at all. Did that turn out to matter? Nope. In fact, it was simply a compelling tour of a big factory, and that was enough for me. What made it special... More

We stayed at the Excellence resort in the Uvero Alto area of Punta Cana. I really wanted to see this factory since we decided to go to Punta Cana. The biggest problem I had was finding information on how to get there. In the last 6 months they have come a long way to help the tourists get there. They... More

To tour the factory, you need to make reservations at least 24 hours in advance. The tour is one of the best experiences to view the largest cigar factory in the world. We met with Jasmine at the La Flor Dominicana Cigar Factory in La Estancia and headed over for the tour at the factory. A once in a lifetime... More

Jose Seijas, the GM and master cigar maker, of Tabacalera Garcia, has left the company, to start his own boutique cigar company. In trying to visit Tabacalera Garcia, the guards at the plant looked at us like we were delusional. Apparently, Jose Siejas ran the tour aspects, and now that he is gone, there is very limited access to visit... More

Getting to it is not easy to say the least. But once you do the tour is first class. My wife and I were able to arrive earlier than the bus tours and were provided with a personal 1 hr tour by Jasmine. Her father has worked at Garcia for 30 some odd years. Garcia is owned by the huge... More
