What you'll do

On this tour, you'll join me as we explore the city and food culture through the medium of donuts. You'll learn about the history of Chicago, each donut location, how they fit into the larger food scene, as well as try some amazing donuts. We start from Doughnut Vault where we try some of the best donuts you've had in your life. Next we'll stop by Firecakes donuts to try a few of their seasonal flavors. Followed up with Stans Donuts near Michigan avenue and finally, we end at Do-Rite Donuts where they have both delicious donuts and fried chicken (if you want to get nuts at the end of the tour). We look forward to seeing you soon!

I've always had a passion for donuts, but only recently did I discover how much other people do too. Whether it's making, eating, or talking about donuts - it's something I'm truly passionate about. That's why I created the Underground Donut Tour. The Underground Donut Tour is Chicago's only tour focused solely on donuts.

One of the highlights from our weekend stay in Chicago! We are big fans of donuts, travel, and history. This tour is a great value that offers all three. Really cool to walk around downtown and taste the variety of donuts around. A sweet memory!

The value is good, guide Adison was sweet and friendly, you get to eat 4 donuts and coffee, but not a lot beyond that. It might be more fun if you get to be with a hilarious group. The donuts places are new places, and not like donut institutes with unique history or lore. The guide shares brief data about each establishment, you also get to walk through the city and get some basic info about architecture. I would say its a gold value, because you get to eat 4 donuts and have coffee, and spend time with a friendly guide, but not anything that would hurt your trip if you choose to pass it.

This donut tour was the highlight of our trip! Addison was a fabulous guide, who sprinkled in some fun city history and architecture facts along the way. The pacing was perfect and kept us moving on a cold Chicago day. Each stop was so unique and we're still talking about the gingerbread curry one. Can't recommend this enough!
