  • My wife and I did the tour here, and I also rolled a cigar. I smoke the occasional cigar, and my wife doesn't, but we both found it so interesting. The mansion is also beautiful, and you get to see a great view of the city from the rooftop. Our guide was wonderful!
  • Amazing cigar tour. Great experience and must see while in Granada. Beautiful preserved colonial style building with a lovely layout. Staff were great. Get to roll your own cigar. They have a great selection of top quality cigars.
  • A nice place for a cigar tour if you don't want to venture out to Estel√≠. I did the $10 tour + $10 roll your own cigar option.
  • Fantastic cigar factory in Granada, highly recommend going and rolling your own cigar! We went to both cigar factories Dona Elba and Mombacho and while Dona Elba is a traditional family business you can see that Mombacho has specialized in high end cigars and this also includes their tour. The guide Brian did a wonderful job explaining in great English the past of the business and the way tobacco is grown and used for cigars and how you can tell differences. He took us through the wonderful mansion where the factory is located and my boyfriend and I also rolled our own cigar with the help of the local staff who were super helpful! Every detail in their production process is ensuring everything is perfect which is great to witness. I highly recommend going!! A tour incl your own cigar is 10$ (Dona Elba is 8$) and takes about 1.5h
  • Claudio is truly a master, with the mind and spirit of an atelier. It was a gift to experience his passion and joy of cigar making and smoking. With him, Mombacho has a very bright future. The property is beautiful and the cigars were fantastic. Just like their sign says, a "best kept secret."
