The Factory is just a shell of the old building and the tours were not happening the day we visited but the Casa De Habano store was open and had a great choice and variety of cigars and the VIP lounge is a wonderful spot...More

Fascinating tour of the "factory" - you get to see all phases of making the cigars and it's quite interesting to watch the people make the cigars and then roll them in the outer wrap and shape and trim. Cigars in factory story were priced...More

Yes, several hotels can sell you tix for $10 each. We took a horse carriage ride and the driver knew where to go for the tix and where the Partagas Factory was! Very worth the effort!
