Not a single aspect of the Cigar Safari with Drew Estates can be aptly described without the qualifying phrase, "Like Kings". We ate like kings, drank like kings, slept like kings, and smoked like kings. The only thing preventing the previous list from continuing is my earnest desire to share the breadth of the experience, even if it's just a... More

It is absolutely mind blowing to see the amount of work that goes into making a cigar. The beautiful landscapes and friendly people are truly breathtaking. Don't not pass up a chance to make this trip it is out of this world.

I have always wanted to do a cigar tour and I'm glad we chose Drew Estate Cigar Safari to be our first. From the pick up in Managua to the fabulous lunch before heading to Esteli. It was a great combination of Nicaraguan history, company charity work and an end to end cigar learning experience. The best part were the... More

Anyone who has an interest in cigars will find the experience at Cigar Safari nothing short of life changing. No matter what level of interest you have in cigars, you will find much to love, and will learn more than you ever thought you would about the country of Nicaragua.

Drew Estate treats you like royalty, a must for any cigar lover. The food incredable and all-you-can-eat, the booze is always available and there will always be 8 or 9 open boxes of cigars to choose from. Once on the tour, you'll spend no money unless you want to purchase souvenirs. Bring some shirts and travel humidors for Jessi and... More
