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!

    The Chicago Underground Donut Tour was one of the highlights of the entire trip! I told my brother (a local) about it and two of the four stops were ones he loves to go to. Our tour guides, Addison and Jackson were awesome! They kept us laughing the whole time and were really personable and easy to talk to. I really enjoyed the variety of donuts I sampled at each shop. We actually went back to Firecakes a second time after this tour. Thanks for an unforgettable experience!

    This was a lovely time! The hosts were amazing, the donuts were incredible, and it was overall just the best. What a way to start the day. The girlfriend and I took my new sailor daughter on the tour and it couldn't have been a better start to the day. The hosts were very knowledgeable of the area and were visibility excited to share anything and everything not only about the donuts but the city.
