I enjoyed learning and trying the cigars, rums, and chocolates. I didn't like that there was a gift/souvenir shop after every experience.

Went on this excursion, only expecting a strip mall to purchase souvenirs. However, was blown away by the memorable experience: from the cigar & chocolate factories, to the jewelry & gift shops as well as the rum bar. Our gracious host, Jose, led us on a tour of this wonderful facility and took the time to explain the inner workings as well as patiently field our questions. I was given the opportunity to sit at a cigar roller’s station and received a keepsake, a finished cigar, to bring home. My girlfriend and I thoroughly recommend this stop if you’re vacationing in Punta Cana and enjoy cigars, chocolate, coffee and rum. Thanks again Jose and staff at Mundo Autentico for adding to the great memories of this trip!

Jose was awesome! He made sure we had the best experience! We were able to get all of our souvenirs in one place & he was a lot of fun to talk to. Great asset to the place!

We were sent here at the recommendation of our concierge. I think the concept is a good idea where you can buy various specialty Dominican products; however, they are WAY overpriced especially the rum and our “guide” Juan was horrible - rude and pompous. He ruined the experience for us and it left a bad taste in our mouths. Could have been a pretty cool experience. So IF you go, prepare to spend a lot and request to have someone other than Juan for your guide.

Worth a visit for the coffee and chocolate. Not worth it for general souvenirs or a wide selection of rum. Not a cigar fan so nice to see made but no other interest

Needs to have a nice coffee shop and bar whist waiting for bus from hotel

ok this is. tourist trap but it ia fairly well done. they pick you up at the hotel. a guide (really a salesman) meets you. the. you proceed to learn about local coffee chocolate rum jewelry ans of course cigar making. it’s a mini factory (chocolate maki g is done partially there for example). the real factories is a few miles away but you can’t see those. if your lucky enough to get a decent guide (we did) then it’s a fun few hours of shopping with a guide.

There is a tour guide that takes you around to the different areas. The one we had was not very good. There was a different guy at the chocolate company was very informative and could tell us all about the chocolate. There was also a different guy at the cosmetic area who was helpful and could tell us about the different products. The other areas it was the tour guide who told us about the coffee, jewelry, & cigars. He could not tell us much about the items and could not answer our questions. It was neat to see them hand roll the cigars, and we did get to sample a few different rums. The souvenir shop was nothing special and we could have bought any of this stuff right at our resort. Our tour guide also kept disappearing on us. I’m not sure he ever introduced himself and he kept flirting with our friends teenage daughter. Not a place I would recommend, you could see the same things on other tours that felt much safer and were more informative. I would not recommend doing this tour, it was mostly a waste of our time.

Waste of time. Everything overpriced.

They pick you up free- make their money on overpriced goods.

Cigars are expensive. Buy at the airport!

Ride back to hotel will be so long that your waste hours of your vacation.

Ok, so obviously you know you're coming here to check out the cigars, coffee, rum and chocolate. Is it tourist sales pitch? Yes. Is it worth it?? I think so. Pretty cool place to spend a few hours, have a nice cigar and learn about the local products the DR has to offer. While they don't produce the rum or grow tobacco here, the chocolate is made here, coffee os roasted here and cigars are rolled here. Is some of the stuff overpriced? Probably, but it's nice to know where your money is going to. Of course I brought one of everything and spent wayyyyyyyh much more than I planned on, but if you wanna pick up some cool stuff and kill a few hours, it's a pretty cool place to check out. They do offer free transportation to and from, and you're given a cigar or 2 to smoke on the tour. Overall, Im pleased
