Tour guide was great fun, and related well to all age groups in the tour. The doughnuts were different at every stop. All were great tasting. You think there’s not enough to go round, but by the end of the tour, you’ve had enough. Equivalent of two doughnuts!

Our tour guide, Max was awesome. Well spoken, cheery, witty, and accommodating to our group. Not only did we enjoy trying yummy donuts, we walked enough in between to space them out. We learned a little Chicago history on the way and heard some cool stories about the donut shops/owners. It’s smart to break up the donuts into bite size considering you’re eating 2 different donuts at each of the 4 stops. Smart. The tour is just a cool, quirky attraction that went well beyond what I was expecting.

We had a great time with Nick and Jackson! The donuts were obviously tasty but what really made the experience memorable were the guys’ personalities. Both tour guides were very personable, hilarious, and knowledgeable about the area. In addition to donut knowledge and some architectural and historical tidbits they shared while we walked, they also gave restaurant recommendations for the rest of our stay in Chicago. Highly recommend this tour to anyone who visits Chicago.
