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.

Our guide Jackson was dope and very punny, had great stories and the whole experience was worth it (the donuts were also delicious)

Get a great tour of the one of the best cities and nibble and/or binge on gourmet donuts…while getting in a great walk. Perfect trifecta of fun, deliciousness, and guilt free splurge activity. I’d give it a triple thumbs up (if I had an extra). Loved that Jackson, our tour leader, gave us his personal spin on the city and favorite donuts! So much more than a donut tour…we learned about the interconnections of the Chicago food scene.

despite the heat and our late arrival, the overall experience was great. Jackson and Addison were friendly and helpful, adding tidbits of the city history along way. Don't worry there was plenty of doughnuts.

We are local Chicagoans who love donuts! We got to eat all the best donuts in Chicago and learn a bit more about our city. What's not to love?

Jackson was a fantastic host, and did a great job of mixing jokes, history, and conversation to create a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a lighthearted and easygoing way to spend a couple hours of their day.

We loved the underground donut tour! We were unsure of what to expect at first but the experience was better than we could have imagined! The tour guide was absolutely amazing and very passionate, he also provided a little history on Chicago and it’s building through out the tour which made for a more fun experience. Everyone was very polite and nice to be with!
