We've always had a passion for donuts, but only recently did we realize just how many others do too. And when looking around, we didn't see anything that truly celebrated donuts in all their glory, hence the Underground Donut Tour was born. This tour is for anyone who truly enjoys donuts. At each location, you'll be able to try a curated sample of one of that location's best donuts. Many locations offer vegan, gluten or nut free options, however, please make sure to let us know ahead of the tour, so we can make sure to highlight those specifically for you. Our tours include such favorites as Do-Rite Donuts, Firecakes, Stans, and Doughnut Vault. Please send us an email if you are looking for a specific location, as tours vary by day.

I was excited to try different flavors of donuts and this tour did not disappoint. With the first stops' "reveal" of the donuts, each one; thereafter, was highly anticipated. Our tour guide, Jackson was fun, witty, creative and a joy to experience this tour with.

Donuts are among my favorite pastry, so going on this tour was a no-brainer. We visited four shops, all of which are locally owned, and we tasted 1/4 of each of two donuts from each shop. That gave us the equivalent of two full donuts on the tour, which was more than plenty given the size! Our guide, Jackson, did a great job, and even as a local, I learned a few new things about the city and the owners of these shops. Fun time .. delish donuts .. well done!

Lots of great donuts! Bundle up if you're going on a cold day because it is all outside. Jackson was a very high energy tour guide with lots of borderline unforgivable puns. 5/5 stars

I was in Chicago for a few days with my cousin and came across this tour and thought it sounded fun so I booked it. We arrived early and met our tour guide Jackson who was a comedian all on his own, cracked jokes the entire tour so you weren't sure when he was telling the truth or making stuff up. We started out with a cup of coffee at the Donut Vault and tried 2 delicious donuts the pistachio frosted one was to die for. You do a total of 4 stops and you walk quite always in between each stop but it was fun. Then is was extra fun because 4 other participants were from our home town which made it more fun. You actually taste 8 donuts and are very full by the end of your tour so skip breakfast or lunch depending on the time you book your tour. Was a great time and Jackson made it extra silly would highly recommend this tour its about 2 hours

We do foodie tours in every city we visit. My kid thought this was the BEST! Jackson was great, not sure all his facts were super accurate but he was very entertaining. We did 4 tours while in Chicago this was everyone is our group's favorite.

This tour was just a lot of fun. It is great for larger groups. Our tour guide was funny and worked hard to keep us entertained. It's a really fun tour to do with clients as well. The donuts were awesome of course!
