Oscar Valladares is getting into cigar tourism with the launch of a new program called the Oscar Valladares Tobacco Adventure.

Valladares will be hosting groups wishing to see the cigar making process in person beginning in 2020, with each tour spanning four days and three nights. During each tour, attendees will travel to Valladares’ factory in Danlí, Honduras and in addition to seeing the working of the factory will tour tobacco farms, the paper and box factories that produces the company’s packaging. In addition, they will participate in a cigar rolling class, coffee tasting, and a celebratory party hosted by Valladares.

A price for the tour has not yet been announced, but the company says that it will include all accommodations, transport, meals, drinks and cigars.

The company is finalizing a new website that will contain more information about the tours, including prices, but individuals in the tours are directed to contact their nearest Oscar Valladares retailer.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
