About
THE ART OF CIGAR SMOKING Some 20 years ago, Bert van Kol settled down in the Punta Cana tourist area with his cigar store, located right on the beach.During that time he attended to an international clientele,people that by coincidence found his little goldmine of smoking joy and knowledge.He would sit them down and tell them about cigar production and about how to handle a good cigar. Little tips to make their smoking experience a more enjoyable one. Time taught him that most beginning or intermediate smokers always kept coming back with the same questions......why is my cigar bitter, how do I cut it? What,s the right humidity, can I relight a cigar... Would you like to become a better smoker too? Enjoy your cigar to the fullest?Learn how to treat and store your cigars? There is an easy way now.... For years Bert van Kol has been advising his clients , connected by webcam,bringing his expertice into their living room, personally walking them through the process of smoking his Vivaldi Cigars. You can become part of the Vivaldi Brotherhood, get some of the best handmade longfillers in the world , and share your experiences with a seasoned and passionate smoker. At a time that is convenient to you you will get a masterclass with the master himself, making sure your experience will be an unforgettable one. Vivaldi smoking Master Class, just a mouseclick away...

Such an amazing experience with Bert! As a beginning smokers , we didnt know much about cigars and i was really excited to know more about this art! And Bert was such a great teacher, telling us about everything to know about the cigar and most important, How to enjoy it! We spend more than 2 hours talking about cigars and discovering 2 different kind of cigars! We would have never thought being able to smoke that type of cigars but it was an unbelievable moment.
Bert is a real passionate, only willing to share his experience and it is a real success!
What to say about Vivaldi’s cigars?! The experience would not have been complete without those amazing cigars ! Proof of hard work and great combination of passion and art.
Would defintely come again to visit Bert! I can only tell people willing to discover cigars art , to come and have a stop by his lounge.

Bert and his son were fabulous hosts. His masterclass was very informative and enlightening. My wife and I spent nearly four hours smoking and discussing cigars with Bert. I highly recommend the Vivaldi Gran Reserva Corona line…🔥🔥🔥!

I’m going to mirror what every other review has said about Vivaldi Cigars and of course Bert. What a fantastic experience I had. I contacted Bert after nearly making the mistake of going elsewhere and straight away he gave me the confidence to book a masterclass with him while I was visiting Punta Cana. We agreed a date and time and also location of where to meet Bert himself who picked me up from the hotel I was staying at about 15 minutes away. As soon as I got into the car he made me feel welcome and comfortable with conversation. When I arrived at the humidor and shop I felt right at home and like a kid at Christmas wi the the selection of beautiful cigars that Bert has to Offer. The information he provides is invaluable teaching me things I never knew and never practised which I have carried forward upon returning home to the UK.
I spent just under 4 hours with Bert and can’t recommend the experience enough. I purchased 2 boxes including the beautiful Aniversario Four Seasons and the Gran Reserva Ejecutivos. Bert was also kind enough to give me some sample sticks which I will enjoy shortly.
If you are in Punta Cana and want a fantastic experience with a highly knowledgeable cigar maker then don’t go anywhere else.
Thanks Again Bert

Bert was extremely knowledgeable on cigars and was very helpful in showing us the right way to smoke and enjoy high quality cigars. The attention to details that goes into his production process was unbelievable and it really showed in the excellent quality of the cigars. Not only that but Bert is an incredibly nice guy and had some great stories to share. We had some very insightful conversations and I could not recommend this experience enough!

This was everything that I expected and ten times more. I was on a trip to punta Cana for a week and this was the best thing I did well I was there. I went with my brother in law and we had a great time talking with Bert from the minute he picked us up to the minute we got dropped off. Bert has so much knowledge and stories it was truly an awesome experience. Learning about all manufacturing and work that goes into produces such awesome cigars and growth of the tobacco. Oh and I also learnt how to actually smoke a cigar lol. Truly an awesome person and an experience I’ll never forget. Thank you Bert!

I found Vivaldi and Bert by doing a search for cigars in Punta Cana - initially I couldn’t believe how many 5* reviews I was reading and had to see for myself. I was not disappointed! The entire experience was unreal, I messaged Bert on our arrival and he made time for us (brother in-law and myself) for the following day.

Bert picked us up at our resort, had great conversation and taught us an entirely new (and proper) way of smoking. The techniques, history of Vivaldi, what goes into a cigar and the conversation were by far the best experience in Punta Cana for me. You are under no pressure to buy anything and you truly feel as if you are sitting with a friend over a smoke.

The cigars themselves are by far the best tasting, best smoke I have ever had. I was so happy I found Vivaldi and Bert and could not recommend the entire Vivaldi experience anymore!

I cannot wait to enjoy my box of Connecticuts this summer.

Thank you Bert, you have a lifelong patron!

Fantastic experience, Bert is so hospitable and has wonderful stories to tell during his masterclass 'how to properly smoke' a cigar. The cigars themselves are the best I have ever tried.
Go here if you like smoking cigars and learn the history of it.

But beware, don't leave the cigars in your checked luggage. Punta cana Airport is a disgusting place and they feel entitled to empty your belongings, so no cigar for me upon arriving home. TAKE THE CIGARS IN YOUR HANDLUGGAGE OTHERWISE THEY ARE GONE.

Man came out to the DR to try cigars kept getting disappointed by quality of cigars. Ran into Vivaldi Cigars on Google. This experience was so surreal was picked up by the owner took me over to his man cave and got a free education on the basics of cigars. There is so much to this game I didn’t realize and to be smoking cigars wrong my whole life. Do yourself a favor and book this experience you won’t regret it he made himself a lifetime client. To be honest he might have ruined other brands of cigars for me (in a good way) book this experience BOOOOK THIS EXPERIENCE TRUST ME 😎

This was without a doubt the best decision I made. From the start Bert picked us up from our hotel, and drove us to his apartment where he does his educational experiences. From the minute he picked us up he was extremely down to earth, easy to talk to and made the experience as comfortable and easy as possible. Before we even began he started introducing us to the world of cigars, everything from the parts of the plant to the proper way to smoke a cigar. Im someone personally who enjoys cigars routinely and thought I was very knowledgeable, however Bert opened my eyes to a whole new world of cigars that I never knew. For anyone going to DR and who enjoy cigars Bert is a must book and must see person. I will definitely be returning to see him on my next trip.
