We had such a great time with our super knowlegdable guide, Addison. She brought us to 4 different donut shops, explained their histories and provided us with some delicious samples (3 of 4 even offered vegan options!). Great fun for kids and adults.

This was a fun short tour with great donuts. Our tour guides were very nice, chatty and knowledgable. And they are taking COVID precautions, so never had any concerns for safety. Bring your appetite as you currently each get 4 whole donuts due to COVID.
