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 history of Portland, each donut location, how they fit into the larger food scene, as well as try some amazing donuts. We start on the PSU campus where we begin at Coco Donuts and try some of their lavender glazed donuts and buttermilk bars. We then take a nice walk through central Portland over to Pioneer Square before reaching our second stop at Blue Star Donuts. These are donuts for grownups and we'll try some of their most interesting flavors. From there, it's off to NOLA Doughnuts where we'll sample beignets and some of the best chocolate donuts you've ever had. We'll finish the tour at Voodoo Doughnuts, where you can even skip the line (sometimes a 30-60 minute ordeal). We hope you can join us!

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 Portland's only tour focused solely on donuts.

A great way to experience popular local shops. Beau is pleasant and made great recommendations for sweets and treats! My favorite stop was NOLA donuts for mini beignets, light and fluffy with a tart marionberry dipping sauce.

We had a wonderful time! The doughnuts were so different, I loved hearing all the stories behind them. Being able to walk the city and chat was a great plus. I was on the tour with other three kids, and were all able to enjoy ourselves. I highly recommend doing this tour when in Portland! It’s a special culture and you will see the city from a different angle

I signed for the donut tour onthe spur of the moment and I am glad I did. The donuts were great, but I also enjoyed taking in Portland by foot and getting to know our guide and the others on the tour. It was as convivial and relaxed. A great way to spend a Portland morning.

This donut tour was awesome! Downtown Portland is beautiful and we were able to enjoy the city in a very cool way. The local news station was there to film an news segment on the donut tour which made the experience even more exciting. Definitely recommend!
