The Underground Donut Tour is launching it first tour in Canada, specifically in Vancouver, British Columbia. The popular walking tour has been running for 7 years across the US, UK, Ireland and now Canada in cities including Chicago, Philadelphia, New York City, Portland, Seattle, Boston, Nashville, New Orleans, Miami, London, Dublin and now Vancouver.
“Vancouver has always been on our list of cities we wanted to open. It’s truly one of the most beautiful cities in North America and when we saw the incredible selection and styles of donuts available, everything just clicked,” says Jeff Woelker, founder of the Underground Donut Tour. “We’re so excited to open our first tour in Canada.”
Attendees will walk between four of the best donut shops in Vancouver’s downtown and Gastown neighborhoods as a guide shares the history of each location, along with many local sights, sounds and tastes of the area. The tour primarily walks through historic neighborhoods, downtown, West End, and Coal Harbour showcasing local architecture, the famous Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, the Olympic Cauldron, Canada Place, and all the donut shops along the way.
“We’re so excited to launch this tour and show off Vancouver’s natural beauty, architecture, history and of course the donuts,” says Ainslee Dalzell, tour manager for the Underground Donut Tour Vancouver.
Tours will start on Friday, August 12 and run year-round every Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 9am and 12pm, with more days and times coming soon. Tickets are $40 for adults and $25 for children ages 10 and under.
