Such a pleasant tour. The tour guide was so friendly and informative. We watched a short video then got a tour around the factory. We obtained information on different types of cigars etc. We tried cigars during the tour and at last got to buy some cigars at the shop. I liked it!

After being received by Eugenio, he gave us a complete tour around the factory providing more than enough information about everything. Great attitude, presentation and anyone is able to see that he’s truly a cigar lover. 10/10. Would recommend anyone to go through that experience.

I visited Santiago for 1 day, in transit on my return trip to the US. A local friend suggested we go to the cigar factory. Initially this did not seem appealing since I don't smoke cigars.

However, the tour was the highlight of my trip to the DR and one I would remember for a long time.

It was a multi faceted experience. The aroma, history, process and hospitality were superbly entwined to make it an unforgettable experience.

This was pale in comparison to the expert guidance of Eugenio, who is an asset to this establishment.

This truly is worth the trip to Santiago de los Caballeros! Visiting the La Aurora Factory was just an unforgettable experience and an amazing time! Eugenio is a fantastic guide, knows everyone in the factory, teaches us all about cigar production and consumption, truly is a gentleman and makes us feel at home in an environment with more than 300 employees. All staff has already been vaccinated - which is both great and unbelievable - and are very welcoming. The tour is free of charge, the installations are great and their store is fully equipped. It was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to the DR. Everyone should visit! And ask for Eugenio! He's the best!

Eugene was our guide through this incredible and fascinating experience!! His knowledge and levity made it even better! The tour was absolutely amazing from start to finish!! You can take photos through the entire factory. It was great to see the entire process from start to finish, learn about the difference between premium cigars and the lower prices cigars. It's amazing to see that they still do most of the work by hand, using machines many, many years old. If you are in Santiago and you plan to do a tour of a cigar factory, make this a MUST stop!! And, did I mention that the tour is FREE!!
