When exploring the types of tours offered in Chicago, some noted that there wasn't a donut tour, which is how the idea came about for this adventure. This is a tour for the entire family to enjoy. While traveling in the city, guests will visit at least four different stores that sell donuts. Some stores offer more than just these pastries, but all of them offer donuts of some size, shape, or taste. All of the shops are located in the Chicago Loop, making it easy to reach them in a short time. For now, the tour is only offered on the weekends. Guests will meet at the Chicago Market on Saturdays and Firecakes Donuts on Sundays. All of the donuts that are consumed are included in the cost of the tour. There is an option to purchase donuts to take home.
Enjoy a variety of donuts on this tasty tour through Chicago. With a cup of coffee in hand, explore a food that doesn't always get the recognition it deserves. After the tour, take in some of the other attractions or do a bit of shopping in the area.
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.
The Underground Donut Tour takes place over two hours. We'll visit four 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.
This tour is for anyone who truly enjoys donuts. We run the tour on Saturdays and Sundays. The Saturday Tour starts at 131 N. Clinton at Chicago's French Market. The Sunday Tour starts at 68 W. Hubbard (Firecakes Donuts). Both days are equally delicious.
Donuts are included in the cost of the tour. At each location, you'll be able to try a curated sample of one of that locations best donuts. You'll also have the option to purchase additional donuts if you wish.
Many locations offer gluten or nut free options, however, please make sure to let us know ahead of the tour, so we can make sure to highlight those specifically for you.
