When we got there, we were informed that the tour wasn't running that day which was no issue as we only went there for the cigar store. A lot of different people tried selling us cigars in Havana but we decided to go here as we'd been told on the way to the hotel from the airport in Varadero that this is a trustworthy place. I did buy some cigars from here and I'm very happy with the quality and price of them. I would definitely recommend the store to someone who wants to buy authentic Cuban cigars. They also have a little bar inside the store so it's a nice place to cool down.

What a fun activity. Mike loves cigars. We had to come here, because Mike read so much about it and the tour and workshop was fun. In case you come to Havana, make sure you pass by.

The tour of the cigar factory is fun and educational. The English-speaking guide almost overwhelmed us with information about cigar-making.

The Factory moved to a different location. To visit and do a tour there, you need to buy the ticket at a hotel concierge/tour seller. This currently location is just a store where you can buy Cigars. The selection is not so great, but I got very lucky. During my visit, the master roller CHINA was there rolling cigars, it was nice to watch her do her thing.

Very informative and the architecture of the building is wonderful. They offer guided tours every half hour.

They're not really set up for visitors. They don't seem to know what is going on. They pointed to a corner and said; "Leave your camera there." Erm, no? Leave my camera in a corner?

The cigar factory tour was interesting, but only lasts 20 minutes. You cannot buy the tickets at the door. They go on sale for $10 per person CUC at 8:30 a.m. in the morning at Hotel Iglesia. The factory is about a seven-minute ride or 20-minute walk from the hotel. The tour starts every 30 minutes.

Husband went home with many cigars. The store is small but they are very helpful and have plenty to choose from.

So here's the deal. The one with the tour is called Modern Partagas Cigar Factory. It is a block away from a Romeo and Julieta factory. The price is 10 cuc. You must pay at a hotel or similar. You cannot get tickets at the door here. Tours start every 30 min, in English and French. Tour was outstanding. The gent was great. Saw all facets of cigar making from removing stems and veins, to rolling, sorting and boxing. This location is not next to El Capitolio, that one is the older one and closed to tours, but there is a legit factory store there with some of the habanos line. There was a guy trying to sell likely fakes here, but he was not aggressive. Near the modern Partagas factory is the R&J factory. There is a decent store in the R&J factory. Outside of this store there were very aggressive people hounding me to buy likely fakes...and dont necessarily believe them when they say they are the ones the workers get...the workers get 5 per day, awarded in an unbranded bundle of 25 on Fridays. The smokes are what I was told are "smaller" and in no way do they give the workers cohiba robustos or siglo vi.
