Tour description


Cuban tobacco is known as one of the finest in the world, and Cuban cigars (called Puros) are legendary.

This free tour at the Casa del Habano will show you how cigar experts create these famous Puros, favored by connoisseurs and celebrities from around the world.

Your guide for this tour will be (me) an English-speaking local who will take you on a journey to learn how Cuban cigars are made, what brands are there, and how to best appreciate them.

On the tour I will give you tips on the best cigars to buy based on your taste and budget. Making sure you know about all the special offers offered by the Casa del Habano. So you can buy the best brands of Cigars at the best price.

With the purchase of the Habanos (cigars) I will include a class on how to smoke the Cigars correctly. I will also explain how to keep them fresh. Explaining what is the ideal humidity and temperature for their conservation.

Do not hesitate to book this tour I am sure you will love it.

Important! Please read carefully. Don't buy cigars on the street! They are all fake, there is not a cooperative of tobacco factory workers (this is a vulgar scam). There is also not Habanos festival every day (another con). The Habano festival takes place exclusively in February.

El tour podría mejorar si se incluyeran más lugares y temas asociados con la industria del tabaco en La Habana. En nuestro caso, visitamos una sola tienda y esperamos varias horas por un descuento que no solicitamos y que tampoco nos dieron.

Jay's is a wonderful, personable tour guide! Funny, knowledgable and professional - a true gentleman. He speaks perfect English and explains everything with humor and wit. Jay's tour gave us an authentic feel for Havana and helped us to further understand Cuban culture as he took us to a special cigar factory and gave us an indepth education on how cigars are made as well as the quality differences. We watched as an expert carefully layed out each leaf and rolled the cigars, layer by layer. We had some extra time so Jay even took us to an historic site and explained the significance of the area. We left his tour feeling like we were family. Jay was also an invaluable resource for other activites we wanted to do in Cuba. Make sure you reach out to him - it will save you a lot of time and money. Because of Jay's suggestions we had an incredible, immersive, fun trip to Cuba.

Amigable, con buena comunicación. Se nota un poco la improvisación en sus tours y no te enseña en realidad sobre los habanos; te lleva a una tienda y espera que compres.

Impecable el tour con Jay. Ya conocía algo del mundo del habano pero hacer este tour con alguien como Jay te lleva a conocer aspectos que realmente desconocía. Nos llevó a lugares que no íbamos a ir si no fuese por él. El trato, el profesionalismo y el respeto impecable verdaderamente. Más que recomendado.
