To keep it short & simple, we highly recommend this experience. We cherished every second of it. This is somewhat of a cliche but this was our best time in Havana. Do not miss it. Luis was just amazing. He had a private tour booked for the day during his regular schedule. He accommodated our last minute request & conducted this experience earlier in the day. We not only learned about cigars, which Luis has abundant knowledge about but also learned about Cuban socio-economy, culture, & politics. We had to cut short our trip because of the new travel restrictions. So, we plan to come back to Cuba in the future & definitely do this experience with Luis again.

This experience with Luis is a must-do for anyone visiting Havana. Luis is so warm and friendly that spending two hours smoking a cigar and drinking rum with him felt like catching up with an old friend. He taught us the history of cigar-rolling in Cuba, as well as the cultural significance of cigars to the Cuban people and on the world stage. His experience, knowledge, and passion combined to offer a unique perspective and essential introduction into Cuban life. Luis also went above and beyond to procure a humidor for us, since the cigar shops and markets were closed due to the pandemic. We can't wait to come back to Havana to connect with Luis again.

I had an awesome cigar experience with Luis Alberto. I was his first client after the pandemic and he took extra time and effort to comfort me. He explained everything from cigar plantation and harvesting to the cigar making process in the factory and the different types of cigars. In addition, we had a super interesting exchange about world and Cuban politics. I definitely learned a lot and had a great time cause he is a cool guy to hang out with as well. 100% recommended!

I signed up my fiancé and step-son for this experience. They absolutely loved it! Luis was welcoming, easy to talk to, and he shared his passion and knowledge of cigars in a way that was very engaging. They learned so much! If you enjoy cigars this is a must do experience. Thank you Luis!!

This was my second time for this experience and like the first it was awesome. Luis knows cigars and host in an incredible venue coupled with Cuban rum. He can advise you on what cigar best matches your taste and fully understands the process of how cigars are made and sold in Cuba. I would absolutely do this a third or fourth time.

Você gosta ou gostaria de fumar charutos ? Você simplesmente é um curioso , ou mesmo , é um conhecedor do assunto ? Então , caso esteja em Havana , lhe sugiro , com entusiasmo , o encontro com Luís . É uma pessoa que fala com a experência adquirida com seu trabalho na fábrica de charutos , e que vai lhe dar informações do plantio de tabaco à comercialização do puro Cubano . Em duas horas , que passarão muito rápido , você terá a oportunidade de desgutar um ótimo charuto harmonizado com ótimos rums . Pela segunda vez estive em Havana e pela segunda vez participei desse evento e , com certeza , participarei outras vezes . ¡ Gracias Luís !
