Delicious!
This tour was a great time! Was really fun to try 4 different types/places of donuts and learn some history of the city along the way. The tour guide was really friendly and knowledgable as well. Price was definitely affordable too. Would recommend to anyone interested in donuts and a walking tour. Federal donut with strawberry/lavender was a delightful flavor surprise!

An Awesome Day!
Feb 2020 • Couples
This event was my gift to my husband for Valentine’s Day and it was a great choice (if I do say so myself.) We had an awesome day with our group and our tour guide was so wonderful! My stomach may or may not still hurt from all the donuts but it was totally worth it!

We went last weekend and we were with Joe, a college history professor. We had so much fun. Our favorite was Dottie’s Donuts. It was good weather and we heard so many interesting stories about the background of Philly and lots of history. We LOVED it. Thanks so much Joe!

Gift that was enjoyed!
Feb 2020
I bought this tour as a gift for my sister and her husband who were visiting Philly to celebrate their joint 40th birthdays. They ended up being the only ones on the tour and had a blast! I want to go check it out for myself now!

More than just a Donut Tour!
Feb 2020
2/7/20 Tour with Joe,
In this order:
Federal Donuts (gourmet boutique, and freshest donuts ever)
Dotties Donuts (100% Vegan, the Mango kollsi will blow your mind)
Tall Charlies (rolled ice cream in a donut with multiple topping options)
Beilers (Traditional Penn Dutch hand crafted blueberry fritters)

Recommendation:
Healthy walk, bring comfortable shoes and if's chilly dress appropriately as there will be occasional stops along the way. If you are a germ-a-phob bring hand sanitizer pre/post eating sessions as you will be walking around a city probably touching things.

Highlights:
Honestly I'm not sure what was better the donuts or all the fun historical and local facts that Joe pointed out along the way in between stops. Joe btw is a professor of history and literature, no kidding, and you will know right away on your first non donut sightseeing stop. You can see there's passion in his story telling and it really pulls you in, and it will typically finish with you saying "Wow, I had no idea" Rather than go on a dedicated Philly history tour, Id highly recommend this and eat some phenomenal donuts along the way and learn about the owners inspiration in creating these master pieces. I travel for a living and frequently take tours, this one should be on the top of your list.
