Ever wonder why people say Cuban cigars are the finest in the world? On this experience, you will discover why Cuba is considered by cigar connoisseurs worldwide as the birthplace of high-end cigars. Begin your tour with an up close and personal experience at one of the city’s premier cigar factories. Learn first-hand about the fascinating art of cigar rolling. Next, your local guide will take you to meet with the creator of Humidores Habana, José Ernesto Aguilera Reina. José is an entrepreneur famous for his humidity-controlled boxes made to preserve cigars, also called humidors. Engage with José and his team to learn all the detail and passion behind their art. Each humidor has its own story allowing customers to learn more about life in Cuba. Then, visit La Triada Cigar Shop at La Cabaña Fortress, which is home to the largest hand rolled cigar in the world. Famous cigar roller, José “Cueto” Castelar, also known as the king of creating massive tobacco cigars won the Guinness World Record for the longest hand rolled cigar here. His cigar measured 90 meters (295 ft) and used more than 80 kilos (176 lbs) of tobacco leaves. Finish the tour with a visit to a local paladar, a privately-owned restaurant, where you can enjoy a cocktail and a cigar. Here you can converse with the owner and staff about their participation in the community.
