Two miles and four amazing donut shops later and I can saw this was an amazing tour. We were entertained, educated and we received so many tasty samples (come hungry). If you're trying to find a fun adventure for an unusual side of Chicago this is for you and all your donut lovers.

This was a fun tour. I didn't know there were so many delicious donuts in Chicago. Our tour guide provided us an interesting and entertaining afternoon on the history of Chicago and donuts. Recommend this tour, a little quirky and definitely a delicious way to experience Chicago.

This was the BEST way to celebrate my 50th birthday. I. Love. Donuts. I also love to sample local chains and/or mom and pop shops when visiting another city. This tour did that for me in Chicago. Jackson was our tour guide and he was great - fun, funny (dare I say punny?), and informative. You get samples of delicious donuts, a great walking tour with historical facts, and donuts. Did I mention the donuts? I'll admit - knowing how much I enjoy donuts, I was worried I wouldn't get enough samples. By the second stop I knew that was not going to be a problem. Loved this tour. Highly recommend!

this tour was a huge fail. so for $30 you meet your guide at point a. get two doughnuts. Tour guide tried to be funny but ends up being total opposite. you walk to point b. nothing about the city along the way. pure silence. you get two doughnuts. walk to point c. same thing and same thing onto point 4. so 4-6 half doughnuts and 2 miles of walking with no communication about things as you pass them. tour guide was horrible. trust me, save your money and take another tour. i only wish i could get a refund.

stupid

Tour is very misleading. It seems in the description as if you get to pick the donut you want but the tour guide picks it out for you. You don't really get that much information about each shop on the tour either. You are better off going to the donut shops yourself and spending half the amount of money. Walked a whole 2 miles in the rain and wasn't able to go into but one donut shop because of COVID. Talk about a poopy time. WHAT A WASTE!
icon Response from Host , May 2021
Hello Brooke, we are sorry you didn't enjoy the tour and thought it was stupid. Our website states that you would be trying "new and interesting flavors of donuts" those flavors are the specialty or signature flavor of each stop. Traditionally food tours are for trying new things, if not we'd all be eating powdered donuts! 😀 We understand that not everyone will have the same experience and we would like to offer you a full refund for wasting your time. Please email us at info@undergrounddonuttour.com so we can make this right and less stupid.
