How did it get started?
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.
What can I expect?
The Underground Donut Tour takes place over 2 hours. We'll visit 4 of the best donut stores in the city. All of them are located in the Chicago Loop area and we'll try a few donuts from each location.
Who is it meant for?
Anyone who truly enjoys donuts. You should be in healthy enough condition to walk several city blocks.
Do you work with larger groups?
Yes! Our tours are typically between 15-20 people, however, we can accommodate larger groups if needed. Just contact us and we'll see what we can do. It's a unique way to spend your next team building or corporate event, bachelor or bachelorette party, wedding activity, school trip, or group tour.
