Following a quick meet and greet with your driver, you then take off to one of Havana’s most famous cigar factories!

It won't take long before you're seeing first-hand and learning all about the world of Cuba’s cigars!


Just before entering the factory, your driver will communicate with you the exact time and location that you will be picked up.

Once you have properly communicated with your driver, you will enter the cigar factory and ask for the next tour in your language (usually the wait is short) and show your cigar factory guide the ticket voucher your driver gave you.

Your cigar factory tour guide will teach you all about the process of what it takes to make fine Cuban cigars. You will view and learn about the entire process that the factory workers follow to turn a tobacco leaf into a cigar.


By the end of your Cigar Factory Excursion, it is likely that you will be ready to kick your feet back and relax a bit. Your private taxi driver may drop you off at your desired location in Havana, whether at your cruise ship, BnB, or a local restaurant.
