    Our tour guide Jenny was great! She is very knowledgeable about NYC and has an amazing attitude/personality. Not to mention that ALL of the donuts we tried were delicious and appreciated supporting the local businesses.

    We loved this tour! Our guide Jacob was amazing … and each donut bakery was unique and delicious. Jacob was so knowledgeable and had lots of NYC tidbits to share as we made our way from the East Village to the West. Truly a delight!

    I think this was a great tour. The guide was very nice and knowledgeable, we saw some really nice and interesting parts of New York and we tasted some delicious donuts. We had a chance to taste so many donuts that i was not possible to eat them all.

    Saturday morning donuts
    Ellen_B, Sep 2023
    Jacob was our tour guide. He told us all about the architecture, windows, and doorways as we walked along. All four donut stops were special and different from each other. Just a great way to spend a Saturday morning for a couple hours.Jacob did an excellent tour for us.

    Architecture and Sweetness

    I purchased this tour as a gift to my ten-year-old sibling who loves donuts. We started with a nice text from our tour guide Jacob. We were delighted to be the only two on the first tour of the day. We met at an Italian marketplace that I have visited many times before in my hometown. Instead of a donut, we had an Italian dessert (that was delicious), but not exactly what we thought of as a donut. We walked to our next stop and Jacob was delightfully full of historical information about the area. The next location was our favorite. We had the choice of about 20 different types of donuts, the staff was really nice and I'd come back here every time I visited NYC. The walk between stops 2 and 3 seemed to take forever. Somehow, I misread the description as the locations were not close. So be prepared to really walk. Stop 3 surprised us because the bakery chose the donut for us and we didn't even get to see their other options. That donut was good but not what we would have chosen had we been given a choice. The final donut bakery was the one I was excited about. Unfortunately, we did not get to choose our own flavor here either and the donut was ok. Sadly the establishment staff was quite rude. I was terribly surprised as I asked about a donut traveling well as we were flying home in about an hour and wanted to take an elderly family member a donut from this place. Her response was quite off-putting and even our tour guide, tried to smooth over her direct response after we walked outside. But that was the second time I had asked her a question and she responded harshly. So I would summarize the tour as ok. Jacob was a good tour guide with his architectural knowledge and trivia. It did stop at four locations and you receive three full donuts and an Italian pastry.
    Don't miss the donuts!

    Our tour guide Jacob was just great and it was fun (and VERY filling!:) to explore and try lots of donut options in the city!
    Response from Host, Aug 2023
    YAY! We would love to see you again on any of the NYC routes!
    Donuts anyone?
    Stacy_J, Jul 2023
    Guide was fun - learned NY History along the way. In particular the donuts from the first shop were really good!
    Response from Host, Aug 2023
    We love hearing from our AWESOME guests!
    Great fun!
    Peter_M, Jun 2023
    We had a great group of guides who were all knowledgeable about NYC! The donuts were great and all very different. Got to see a good area of the city between stops. Highly recommend this for a family!
    Response from Host, Jul 2023
    Thank you so much! We are only as good as our AWESOME guests, so again, Thank YOU!
    I didn't enjoy this trip...
    Monica_H, Jun 2023
    I didn't enjoy this trip at all, the Donuts was not that special and we where booked for two hours but the tour ended after just one hour.
    Response from Host, Jul 2023
    We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy yourself on the tour. The tour is UP TO two hours, meaning we can some times finish early so you can continue to enjoy our wonderful city. We hope to impress you on a future tour!
    Great tour
    Jaime_R, Jun 2023
    A great mix of a food tasting tour and New York history. The doughnuts were delicious and filling - come hungry!
    Response from Host, Jun 2023
    YAY! Thank you so much for spending some of your NYC time with us!
    Everyone should take this tour!
    Jill_B, May 2023
    Jacob was a fantastic tour guide! Great historical and fun facts along the way plus good conversation with all the tour members. Donuts were amazing and loved the opportunity to try new flavors I may not have otherwise (but traditional flavors always available for less adventurous tastes). Everyone should take a donut tour!
    Response from Host, Jun 2023
    WOW! We are blushing! Thank you so much for hanging with us in NYC, Jacob says 🖐
    Yum! Don’t miss this.
    Kelly_D, May 2023
    So much fun. Jacob was awesome. He provided neat tidbits about the city and architecture, in a well paced and delicious tour. This is my second Underground Donut Tour (Chicago 2022), both have been fantastic. A great way to see less touristy parts of the city AND eat fantastic donuts.
    Response from Host, Jun 2023
    We LOVE repeat offenders! Please come hang with us again and again!
    Tour guide never showed...
    Brian_B, May 2023
    Tour guide never showed up. Had to keep reaching out to the hotline to get updates on where the person was and was told they were there on one call and then the next that they weren’t coming. Haven’t heard back regarding refund.
    Response from Host, Jun 2023
    We understand your frustration with the guide not showing up, however, you cannot rate a tour you didn't attend. Our guide had an accident, and your refund was issued. We hope to make this up to you.
    Fun little trip
    Tracey_B, May 2023
    The fact that we tries donuts that we wouldn't normally have chosen was an eye opener, especially the one with the olive oil and black pepper frosting, which was surprising nice. Our guide Josie was lovely and very friendly as well as knowledgeable about the areas we walked through.
    Response from Host, Jun 2023
    Thank you so much for the shout out! We love our guests!
    Great tour!
    Katherine_K, May 2023
    Awesome doughnuts! Even as someone who has been in NYC for years, Josie (the tour guide) was very knowledgeable about new places I didn't know about
    Response from Host, May 2023
    Thank you for letting us reintroduce you to your adopted hometown! We hope to host you again, on any of our NYC routes or our cities around the world!
    Lots of doughnuts, not much else.
    Corey_B, Apr 2023
    Somewhat disorganized…two guides didn’t really get along. Bathrooms were promised at one of the stops…and weren’t available.
    Response from Host, May 2023
    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry this is the experience you had. We were blindsided by the closed bathroom and found accomdations for those who needed to go. We would love to host you again for an opportunity to WOW you on another tour. We can assure you that your experience is not indicative of our service.
