Chicago’s popular Underground Donut Tour, the city’s only food tour specializing in donuts, is coming to a new city for the first time. Philadelphia is getting its own Underground Donut Tour this year.
The all-you-can-eat walking tour focuses on Philadelphia’s favorite donut shops. The tour will begin at the renowned Federal Donuts and will wind up at Beiler's Donuts at the Reading Terminal Market. There will be multiple other donut shops along the way.
“We’re so excited to get started in Philadelphia and share the donut love that people in Chicago have been feeling for years,” says Jeff Woelker, founder of the Underground Donut Tour.
The Philadelphia tour, which runs Saturday and Sunday year round, leads guests through the Center City district to sample donuts and learn some history about each neighborhood, the specific donuts they try, and the city itself.
Chicago’s version of the tour has been around for over four years, starting in June of 2014. It has turned into one of the highest rated food tours in Chicago, featuring the famous Stan’s Donuts among others.
