Full description
Take a donut tour of the windy city, and discover the best Chicago has to offer. At each location, you will taste a curated sample of the best donuts. Some of the stops on this downtown tour include Stan's Donuts, Do-Rite Donuts, and Firecakes Donuts, true donut institutions. This two hour walking tour is led by a passionate donut expert who will guide you to some of Chicago's best donut locales. This tour caters to all size groups, both large and small. The donut tour is great for bachelor and bachelorette parties, birthdays, family reunions, weekend getaways, or even corporate events. There are two versions of the Donut Tour: The Classic Downtown Tour, as well as a local neighborhood tour in Wicker Park. Both are great options if you're excited about donuts. It really just depends on what neighborhood you want to explore: if you want to stay downtown or if you want to venture out to the Wicker Park & Bucktown neighborhoods to see how "the locals do it". In either case, don't hesitate to join the tour. Buy your tickets today!

    So darn fun! My entire family loved it! Nick, our guide was simply terrific. (don’t tell him we said this… wouldn’t wanna embarrass him !) Even on the freezing cold morning, one of the best ways to wake up and kick off the day. Highly, highly recommend.

    I really enjoyed the Underground Doughnut Tour! Our tour guide, Nick, was informative, and I learned new facts about the city even after living here for a year. I got to try donuts I never would’ve ordered (although I do wish there were more chocolate donuts in the assortment we got from each shop), and enjoyed several of them. I’ll be back to each of these donut shops!

    I scheduled our tour for my last day in Chicago. (Big Mistake!) We enjoyed the doughnuts. (Or shall I say part of a doughnut. It was explained that we weren’t getting a whole doughnut due to previous experiences & patrons becoming too full to try more doughnuts). Unfortunately we were unable to take any home with us due to traveling by train. We had & enjoyed the small size of our small group. We were able to get to know about their experiences during other doughnut tours. Our tour guide was great! He took time to explain the different places we went to & their histories. He also explained we were given the selections we tried. I will say that our last stop was rather weird. We didn’t actually go sit down for doughnuts; but actually stood kitty corner from the location while waiting for our doughnuts to be cut up & delivered to us.
