I live in MD and wanted a little get away for my bday weekend so we headed to DC. While looking for fun things to do I saw the walking donut tour! We've done one I'm chicago so I couldn't wait to try one here! It was lots of fun, laughs, yummy donuts. Avery was our tour guide. She was awesome. Tons if fun! Loved it.
Fun and different!

This tour towards the beginning of our trip made it extra special!! We discovered some of our favorite bakeries/cafes and other places to visit. And our guide Sam shared some interesting little known historical facts and offered personalized tips/suggestions to guide us on the restvof our journey. Plus of course the donuts/pastries were delicious 😋!! Highly recommend for something a bit unique without a big time commitment.
Great day!

Me and my friend had a blast. Great weather for it. All the stops had delicious donuts/pastries…will try to revisit them on trips back to DC. Loved the history of buildings and such along the way. Perfect! Thx Sam for a great day…great historian and friendly.

Jimmy!! He was fun, knowledgeable, funny… made the whole tour experience what it was. Someone less enthusiastic would have dampened the “chilly day” but he held our interest and seemed to embrace his job as something he truly enjoyed doing not as a “means to an end”. Very fun!!!
Delicious and Fun!

Jimmy and Avery certainly know how to provide interesting history with a unique variety of donuts. Beignets were our favorite donut of the day. This is the best food tour in DC.
DONUT tour!
Michael_R, Mar 2024
Very different tour. Combo of food and sightseeing tour. Heavier on the former. Donut places were gems but would have loved a bit more sights. Kept the teenagers engaged though.
Nice short walk around the central
Iris_Q, Mar 2024
Tour was good though it would be better if it wasn't raining.. however price is rather high for a couple of donuts and a drink for less than 2hrs walk
Friendly and delicious

Tour guide very knowledgeable…All donut stops provided distinctly different, excellent variety of donuts. The donuts from Bantam King were deliciously different…chewy texture.
Guide was a no show. Ruined the entire day for my group of 8

The guide was a no show. Tour never happened. Only got a call after I called first. I have always trusted Viator - will think twice next time.
