    Good trip
    Don Lucas was a good trip. We got free transportation arranged from our hotel. They showed us how cigars are made and we had some cigar tasting. We also visited a chocolate and coffee tasting room. They have a souvenir area with loads of options, worth having a look. We were able to buy some cigars and a really lovely Caramel Rum after rum tasting. I’d recommend the rum it was sooo good! It’s called rhumba.

    A wonderful place to shop with no pressure to buy anything
    This is a fabulous place to shop for everyone in your family! They have nice jewelry, great coffee, wonderful cigars, fabulous chocolate, and some top notch rum!! Jose Espiritusanto was so kind and patient with us explaining all the different types of rum and allowing us a chance to sample them. I cannot say enough great things about this place. Thank you to everyone at Don Lucas for making this such a fabulous place to shop!!

    Great quick trip off the resort
    If you are looking for a quick, cool cultural trip check this place out. Our hotel arranged a free shuttle for us. When we arrived, the driver and employees pointed guests toward the cigar shop and gift shop first. My friend and I had other plans. We went to the rum tasting first. We made the right choice. We were greeted by the amazing bartender Jose (who insisted we call him Yo). He asked us where our cigars were. When we told him we didn't have any, he ran out, grabbed us two medium bodied cigars, cut them, rubbed them in a bit of sweet rum and helped us light them. We got to experience his hospitality two on one for about 20 minutes until a larger tour strolled in. That is when Yo put on a show. He's a great salesman and showman. My friend and I left with a bottle of rum and some great cigars. Couldn't have been happier with our experience.

    Enjoy the Experience You Wont Regret It!
    It was great to see cigars made from scratch and partook in a few samples. We made our way over to the cigar bar and I was able to pick up a few fine cigars to bring home, our guide was able to point me in the right direction based on what cigar types that I would like. From there we made our way to the Rum Bar do not pass this up. Jose was our Bartender and he made the tasting a fantastic experience so much so we needed to buy 6 bottles to take home. Make your appointment take your time and enjoy!

    Great time
    Had a great time, so much so that me and my friend went back before we left to come back home. Was treated like royalty by Antonio and was not pressured into buying anything although we did buy alot, lol. Spent a few hours there eating chocolate, drinking rum and coffee and of course smoking wonderful cigars. Will absolutely go there again when I'm in Punta Cana

    Don Lucas Visit
    We visited Don Lucas Cigars. Although I would not classify this as a factory tour, they do have two rollers making cigars and one person packaging. If you smoke cigars, they give you one to enjoy as you do the tour for free.. The presentation was nice followed by a visit to the humidor and gift store for purchasing. After this, we visited a rum bar for some limited tasting and chocolate store. If your in one of area resorts and looking for something to get out and do, this is worth it. They provide free transportation to and from your resort.

    This tour is well worth your time
    What a great time. This was the first time that I had ever visited a cigar production facility. I rarely smoke, but absolutely enjoyed my time learning about cigars, Pepe, our guide is obviously proud of the Don Lucas cigar brand and is a true advocate of the product and the employees. I learned a lot about cigars, from production of the plants, to the rolling of the sticks, to the aging of the finished product. I have enjoyed many tours, including breweries, wineries, and distilleries. I learned more from this tour than I ever expected. Pepe was very generous with the free samples of cigars, and made great recommendations for purchase (absolutely no pressure to purchase) based upon personal preference. The cigars are pricey, but quality costs. The chocolate shop was really nice with fine quality products. The rum shop was great fun and Michael was phenomenal, a great entertainer and an excellent representative of the company. This was a quality experience which can cost customers nothing, if that is what they choose. Lots of free samples and zero pressure to purchase. A free ride from the resort and back in a clean, comfortable van with capable drivers. The entire excursion was about three hours and was a very nice distraction from the resort.

    Worthwhile to see!
    If your resort offers a trip to this place, don't miss it! Our resort offered this trip through Amstar. Picked us up and took us to this cigar place and also visited the chocolate, coffee, rum and the gift store. A must!

    Fun Tour!
    Fun place. Went for cigars, got a nice little tour and ended up buying other local goods. Our tour guide at the place was amazing and made the experience enjoyable. There were lots of opportunities to buy things, but never a pushy approach like other places.

    Fun cigar factory tour
    Excellent visit to Don Lucas Cigar factory! You get a free cigar (choice of 3 different ones) to smoke while learning how the cigars are made. You can smoke throughout the whole tour. You can shop for jewelry, souvenirs, cigars, rum tasting, chocolate tasting and purchase those items. Bartender was excellent! Free tour, just tip the driver, cigar makers & bartender!

It’s not that bad but it’s still a Tourist trap.
They will come pick you up for free in hope that you spend.
Once arriving they will offer you to smoke a cigar. Meanwhile the guide will explain the basic on how to craft a cigar while watching two guys roll a few. The whole thing last maybe 5-8 minutes max. Which is more a demo/shop than a factory visit.

The rhum tasting is not free. It can be between 3usd to 18usd on the sample.

You will find a better price at the airport duty free. (Some bottle had arround 18usd price difference)

The coffee and chocolate price are inflated. They do have a variety of free chocolate samples though.

So disappointing! We own a condo in Punta Cana and over several years, have taken friends and family to Don Lucas. Always a wonderful experience. Not today. January 2024 and a lot has changed. They have scaled back and are even charging for a thimble of rum. During our visit there were a group of very drunk and obnoxious men at the rum bar and the bartender was completely catering to them. We stood waiting 30 mins for ‘our turn’ which never happened. The entire atmosphere and attitude here has changed. My husband would go to buy his cigars there. Sadly, won’t be back.

Very disappointed. We came for a free rum tasting and ended up paying $3 per taste. This was never mentioned until we were leaving. The bar was overflowing with tourists wanting to taste rum. We waited 25 minutes for one taste of rum. We never got the history info. Shopping was the usual tourist stuff. The cigar making was interesting and the cigar are priced fair. Just a warning… ask before you taste the rum.

The staff was very helpful in selecting a good cigar. The prices were middle of the road for a vacation cigar. Overall I would visit again.

A fun experience overall. Cigar manufacturing, jewelry shop, rum tasting/shop, large cigar shop/selection, souvenir shop of island things, and chocolate manufacturing/tasting/shop.
Michael was great in leading us around - everyone was very friendly and helpful.

No pressure tour. If you really want to cigars being rolled then it is worthwhile. Not much more than that. It was a 20 minute drive from the hotel. Dropped us off and said we will be back in 2 hours. We were done with all the shops in 30 minutes.
