This was a small place with 4 workers showing the hand rolling process. Takes about ten minutes to do the whole thing. Great collection of cigars in the store. It does smell great when you first walk into the building.

This was an excellent tour. My husband is an avid cigar smoker and loved this tour. I knew nothing about cigars but found the tour fascinating. It truly felt like we were VIPs on a behind closed doors tour.
