Just completed a tour of the La Aurora Cigar Factory and as a cigar smoker it was definitely a learning experience. Our guide, Eugenio Polanco absolutely loves his job and explained the process from start to finish. Smoked a great cigar along with a Presidente beer while on tour.

This was my my cigar tour and when I heard about the number of rollers in a factory I didn't know what to expect. We were greeted by the Aurora tour guide Eugenio who is also fluent in English and German. He took us through the complete process from deveining to leave separation to aging, rolling, disinfecting and packaging. Eugenio and La Aurora have given me a new appreciation for cigars. The fact that you get to smoke one while taking the tour is the icing on the cake. Cigar fans this is a must see!
You can also purchase cigars directly from them and they are the most reasonable I've see in RD so far.

La Aurora Cigar Factory in Santiago, Dominican Republic is absolutely something you must see.
First of all, the tour was free. The tour guide spoke fluent English and at least 5 more languages! He showed us the process of rolling the cigars while we were enjoying great Aurora cigars:)
Great experience, very professional and highly recommended!

Iliana was our tour guide and she was wonderful. The whole tour was interesting and it was great to see and learn about the process of making cigars. Iliana asked workers to show us the steps involved and it was fascinating. It's a bit out of the way but very worthwhile.
