This was an incredibly disappointing tour. There was no electricity! We walked through the tiny facility in the dark.

This was a small place with 4 workers showing the hand rolling process. Takes about ten minutes to do the whole thing. Great collection of cigars in the store. It does smell great when you first walk into the building.

Was this interesting yeah sure but not worth the time. My wife and I have seen a few "cigar factories" and this was way to commercial. The guide was very informative with his tour and answered questions very professionally. He explained how the plant is...More

This was an excellent tour. My husband is an avid cigar smoker and loved this tour. I knew nothing about cigars but found the tour fascinating. It truly felt like we were VIPs on a behind closed doors tour.

Just took the best in-cruise-port tour of my life: Mr. Geudy Vargas took us on a tour of Tabacalera de Garcia in La Romana, Dominican Republic. It is where the Dominican versions of Montecristo, H. Upmann, Romeo y Julieta, and many other cigars are made....More

While the tour was interesting, in that it touched on the highlights of the cigar making process, the cruise tour operator/guide was like a 90 min infomercial for the cigar brand and principal. While the information about how the cigar is made from growing the...More

Can you please tell me who you used for your custom tour? I have been trying to find a reasonably priced tour company (we are staying in La Romana) to take us to a cigar factory tour and Alto de Chavon, but can not find anyone under $300 for the both of us (I can rent a car for $100 drop off and pick up at resort). I have also not been able to get a response back from anyone at either cigar factory in La Romana. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!
