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.

We had a wonderful time with our guide, Nick! He was very personable, hilarious, and an expert donut sommelier. Every donut chosen was unique and delicious!

We really enjoyed this tour. We went with our three kids (14, 13, 11) and they had a great time. The donuts were delicious and Jeff did a great job of guiding us. We highly recommend this tour.

Jackson was our tour guide, and he was fantastic. We had such a lovely time, and were very fortunate to have someone who knew the city, the stops, and so much more. You can go to these places on your own, but why would you? As soon as you arrive, they have the donuts ready for you, and Jackson made sure to take care of everything we needed. The spots are well spaced out, so you never felt like you were walking that far, and it was just so much fun to explore the city and these shops in a different way. Highly recommend this experience and Jackson as your guide.

Really enjoyed this tour! The donuts were delicious and it definitely inspired me to go back to at least one location for seconds!

We had Jackson as our tour guide! Had a spectacular time and enjoyed his dad jokes. Jackson also recommended we visit The Green Mill for live music, which we did later that evening and thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you!

This was such a fun tour! Nick was great, super easy to talk to, and had a great personality. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
