Can't say enough good about this place. They came and got us the same day we requested a reservation (due to one of our other excursions being cancelled). It's a cigar factory, rum tasting, and chocolate museum all in one experience. When you get there they give you a free cigar to smoke during the tour. We got to see them hand rolling their cigars and got to ask them any questions. Then we went to their huge walk in humidor - must have been the size of our hotel room. They had a large gift shop that was 1/2 the price of the resort's shops that we were staying at. ALL of the cigars they had in stock were genuine. No fakes here like the resorts.
Next was rum tasting - we sat down at the bar and tried probably 5 or 6 different types, all were made in the DR and all were great.
Last was the chocolate museum (wife's favorite) - They took us from the cacao tree and showed us step by step how chocolate is made, they even let us grind some cacao beans and participate.
This is a great time, it's a free tour so don't miss it. Everyone's super nice, most have a great command of the English language, and the gift shop is huge. I ended up buying some cigars, a bottle of rum, and the wife bought some chocolate.
