We found the staff helpful and we were able to get advice where we needed it too. I bought all the Cuban cigars I wanted during my visit and they were reasonably priced. They also gave me special packaging to make sure I was able to transport them home without damaging them.

The museum did not work when we were, but the store smokupili cigars and cigarettes, a better option not found nigdje.Pazite not people who stand in front of the factory and want to sell you cigarettes you buy in the store. They want to deceive you.

The do NOT sell tickets at the new location so buy them in an agency at a major hotel. We wound up paying someone 5 CUCs to taxi somewhere and buy us 5 tixs at 10CUC each. Never saw the tickets and some reviews here indicate the tixs are 5CUCs at the Hotel Saratoga so plan ahead. It's an interesting... More

We walked to the Old Partagas Cigar Factory behind the Capitolio. Upon arriving I was told that the factory had moved and there were a slew of Bike Taxi's waiting to shuttle tourists. He said it would cost 10 CUC and we jumped in! Our driver shuttled us over to the Saratoga Hotel. Once inside I went into the "San... More

This is a must for any tourist in Cuba. See them select leaves and roll them up. The shop is where you'll want to buy your boxes to take home now that the laws allow you unlimited cigars!

When they say the cigars are handmade, they aren't kidding. Old school techniques with old word facilities still at play today. Worth a trip for sure.

Had a great hour round this factory. We learnt all about the process of growing, drying, selecting, rolling and finishing off the cigar making process. All very interesting and if you are coming to Cubs, a definate tick box

this cigar factory has been closed down. a structural flaw was found and the building was evacuated. the staff and business have moved to the outskirts of town at a new location. there are only Three Major Cigar Factories. it shouldn't be hard to find another one to tour. but remember, pics are not allowed in some of the employees....

Quite the experience to see how a cigar is made, starting right from the details of growing of the tobacco leaf to viewing first-hand the cigar making, the Govt. funded cigar-making training center and the quality control. Then, if you wish, head to the showroom opposite El Capitolio to buy some cigars if you want!

The tour was alright. Unfortunately the guide did only tell us very few things about the cigar production process but it was great to look how the workers made them. It is very important that you cannot buy the tickets in or near the factory, you have to buy them at a hotel in havana old town before! If you... More
