It`s a great oportunity to understand the long jouney from the seed to smoke. Amazing experience. The longfillers cigars are fabulous. I not only saw the whole process of growing tobacco but also planted my own tree. I do recommend.

Melck was a great guide! The museum was beautiful and we actually got to see the cigars being made. The area around the museum was quaint and it was nice to see this part of the country.
