Being only a short walk from our hotel we couldn't pass up the opportunity to learn about a business so important in Nicaragua's history. That and the building is really cool looking. The tour consists of visits to about six different rooms, each a unique part of the cigars' production. The most interesting was the production floor where several young... More

Extremely friendly and well informed staff, we had a lot of fun during the tour. Learned a lot about the tobacco plants and the process of producing a cigar itself while looking over the workers' shoulders. We would definitely recommend a visit.

We loved this tour and highly recommend it. I'm not a cigar aficionado but my boyfriend is so we thought we'd check it out. I had read online that you did not need to book ahead of time so we wandered over in the morning. We were greeted by happy and helpful staff where we opted for the guided tour... More

Our group had a lot of fun learning about the making of Cigars, and at the same occasion, learning a bit more about the culture of Nicaragua. The house is plendid, the staff is very nice and welcoming, and the product is also very impressive.

For $5.00 ( which I think should be waived with cigar purchase-but I digress!)you get to tour a working premium cigar factory and get to learn the inner workings of cigar making from leaf selection to labeling. The cigars ( esp the 10 year anniversary blend) were very smooth ( esp the ones from the Esteli region) and very reasonably... More

we couldn't participate at the proper tour because we didn't have enough time, but they gave us a quick introduction and we were able to roll our own cigar. that was a different experience, totally worth it. you learn more from it, when you can do something on your own. and it was only 6$ for our own cigar!

I had a wonderful time at this beautiful frabica, Casa Favilli. Benoit and Brian took time to explain all the details of the cigar making procedure and their love for this art was evident. The whole experience started with a visit to their walk-in humidor where I selected a Mombacho corto. This cigar may have been the best-constructed I've ever... More
