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!

    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.

    A good low-key outing with an appropriately high-energy guide (Nick) in a big, fascinating, impressive yet accessible city in Chicago. Very good if you are anti-social but still don't mind talking to people about sugar rushes. The portions are generous (though you are welcome to take leftovers home from Nick) and the walking is at a manageable pace. The tour provided tons of Instagrammable moments and plenty of reasons to want to return to Chicago. Highly recommend for solo travelers like myself and couples like the cool ones I met on last weeks tour. We had a very nicely diverse group for our tour (age, race, ethnicities evenly represented and interacting pleasantly with each other) and we had an equal number of locals on staycation as well as tourists. I wish we had better weather but it was damn near a perfectly good time!

    Our guide was friendly with the right amount of energy. He engaged our group in relevant conversations and gave brief facts about the city. The tour was appx 2 miles and ended in an area of the city that was close Enough to the Navy Pier amd water taxi which was my family’s next events.. The walk between stops was well paced between 4 stops. The donut selections were very tasty. A water or coffee is included. Each person received half of two Different doughnuts at each stop. This event is great for all ages. I would only add an additional donut choice at each stop to make the “donut” tour stand out more. My 8yr old and 25 year old enjoyed the trip equally.
