  • We had asked our "travel agency" representative to recommend a portion of the town that we could see the local culture, get some souvenirs, go to stores/restaurants that the locals go to, etc since th...  more »
  • First, it must be said that this is not an aggressive sales event. Who wants to buy the who do not not. We have recommended this free tour by the tour guide or by an expatriate Germans. We were picked up from the hotel and driven to this "Hamlet". Once there we were welcomed by a German, which has guided us through the various "factories" and shops. As the first cigar factory, if you wanted to you could one taste, an amber, blue amber and Larimar jewelry shop. Further we in a souvenir shop with cigars, chocolate products, cosmetics and various other souvenirs went. As the next we went to the bar. There, we then had a Rumtasting. Next we went into the coffee room and lastly in the manufacture of chocolate. We were allowed to try div. chocolate such as tea, wine, cocoa and chocolate chips. To last gabs a round Mamajuana and then we went again to the transfer. All in all it was very nice and informative. Priced partial bissl more expensive than in the supermarket.

  • Great wee two hour trip out the resort. We got to see them make cigars and each person in the group got a sample. They also had rum tasteing, chocolate tasteing and coffee tasting all with the opportunity to buy. There was also a good large gift shop. The tour was free from our hotel and while is could of been 1.5 hours rather then 2 hours we enjoyed the tour and shops and samples. Worthwhile to get out the resort for a bit for no cost.
  • This excursion was free & included with our Apple vacation so we went. The bus out there was very small but we had a bigger bus on the way back. It lasted about a half day with 2 of those hours (approximately 4 hours total) being used for traveling. We thought it was okay for being free but were left a bit disappointed because we thought we’d get to see everything (such as: coffee, rum, & chocolate) being made but we only saw some cigars being rolled. Everyone was very nice but the tour of each building was extremely quick & it’s very obvious they want you to buy a lot because they walk you right to the gift shop. The staff was friendly but we found ourselves sitting around waiting for our bus to come get us.
  • this is a free an relaxing excursion to enjoy while in Punta Cana. you learn how cigars are made. our guide Andre was very nice. you get a free cigar to enjoy as he showed is around. I'm told prices were a little high. they also offer no pressure souvenir shops too. next we went to the rum bar where or expert guide Louis guided us thru the finest rums available in Domincan Republic. We had the best time of our trip here! Salud! there is also a chocolate making place here that allows you to sample chocolates.
  • Excellent experience every time ! Luis at the rum bar is the best as is Andres from the Don Lucas cigar facility and the chocolate store folks are awesome! Highly recommend it
  • Good rums , good cigars, chocolate and coffee, free transport from mayor hotels and a nice giftshop
