Boston, MA’s Underground Donut Tours Are a Sweet Treat
There's never a shortage of entertaining things to do in Boston.
In addition to the popular, mainstream options that the typical tourist might think of such as sports games, museums, and theaters, some extra digging will bring your attention to the more unique and eclectic offerings that help give Boston its individuality and character.
A special Alice in Wonderland-themed cocktail bar is currently operating at The Merchant until the end of April. Mobsters & Lobsters trolley tours allow you to learn about the history of Boston's mobster underworld, and later enjoy a lobster lunch or dinner with your fellow passengers.
Courtesy of Airbnb, we've just found another experience you're sure to find particularly sweet: Boston's Underground Donut Tours.
I mean, come on. Just take a look at this picture. Doesn't this look heavenly? Which of these donuts would you grab first (the pink one is particularly eye-catching)?
During these Donut Tours, guests are led by a tour guide to multiple stops around the city including Kane's Donuts, Boston Public Market, and Bova's. At each location, you'll not only be able to try some yummy donuts, but get a sprinkling of local history in the process.
Here are some delicious apple cider donuts, quite possibly from Boston Public Market...
...and this gorgeous donut, which is likely a Boston Cream from Bova's.
If these images don't entice your sweet tooth, I don't know what will.
Jeff, the host, explains on Airbnb how these Tours got started:
"I've always had a passion for donuts, but only recently did I discover how much other people do too...I was in the process of starting my own donut shop right as COVID hit. Unfortunately, that will have to wait for another day. In the meantime though, it taught me all about running, owning, and promoting a donut business and amazing donuts. I would love to share my donut expertise and passion with you and your friends."
It turns out that the experience is quite the hit, and currently has 4.9/5 stars and 170 reviews on Airbnb as of this writing.
So, what about you? Would you like to take Jeff up on the offer to enjoy some donuts?
