Not a cigar smoker, but this was amazing to see. Learning about the plants, the leaves, the "recipes" - and seeing it all coming together - it is fascinating. Our guide was really good, spoke English, had a lot of fun with our group. Glad...More

Like going back in time and seeing how things were done decades ago. Even if you don't appreciate cigars, this was a very interesting peek into the life of a working factory. Worth the 10 cucs admission

This is a large, non-fancy, raw exposure to the "mass" production of hand-made Cuban cigars in many varieties. Worth the tour to understand the background, process, quality controls, labour benefits, and so on. English tours, with hands on exposure (they seem to go every half-hour...More

We had reserved a private guided tour on line and the guide went to pick-up our tickets for immediate entry. Others were just waiting on line.

Churchill and many kinds. Please note that there is no deal. Cigar prices are all the same all over Cuba.
