FAQ - Frequently Asked Donut Tasting Tour Questions:

Do we get to pick the Donut Stops?

That’s our job! We’ve had lots of fun testing out all of the city’s awesome Donut spots, and finding those quirky characters. Trust us, that’s why you came here.

Will I be satisfied with the number of donuts?

Absolutely! Our tastings at each stop offer a diverse range of flavors and styles. Instead of full-sized donuts, our tasting sizes ensure a broader tasting experience. We prioritize diverse and unique flavors, so if you’re only after a classic frosted donut, this might not be the tour for you. Dive in and discover something new!

Do we get an itinerary/tasting list in advance?

The tasting choices and stops are revealed as part of the experience itself as it unfolds. You can explore our example flavors and the caliber of Donut Shops to get a feel for what we offer.

What if we have dietary restrictions?

While our tour is tailored for a diverse tasting experience, around 80-90% of our pre-selected items are not vegetarian or gluten-free. Be aware that some choices may contain nuts, pork, and non-dairy ingredients. Due to our commitment to timely service and avoiding long queues, our donuts are pre-ordered, making individual adjustments for dietary needs challenging. If you’re strictly vegetarian or gluten-free, this tour might not suit your preferences as those options are quite limited.

Can we mix and match the two routes?

Sorry, no mix-and-match magic here! Depending on the day, you’ll either dive into Outer Sunset, Mission & Potrero Hill districts or explore The Fillmore, Japantown, and Pacific Heights. Our route is dictated by the operating day/hours of our chosen donut shops. But alas, we can’t blend these routes because these delightful destinations are sprinkled across the city like sweet surprises.

When should we book? Do you take last-minute bookings?

For our tours, we suggest a minimum 1-week lead time. Bookings made with less than one week’s notice will occasionally limit the available shops and tasting selections  Book early!

Where's the rendezvous point?

We’ll meet you at the whimsically named Umbrella Alley, 757 Beach Street in San Francisco. Umbrella Alley is where the magic begins!

Are there additional charges on top?

Nope, our pricing already includes everything but the gratuity! No sneaky “booking fees” or hidden charges here. We like to keep things as sweet and straightforward as possible!

Is gratuity included?

Nope, we don’t include gratuity. In the tourism world, it’s customary to tip around 15%-20%, which comes to approximately $20.00 per guest. You can think of it as a sweet way to show your appreciation.

Can I get a refund or reschedule my ticket?

Bookings are refundable if you let us know 24 hours in advance. Within that 24-hour window, there are no refunds, and you can’t reschedule. We have to pre-order and prepay for all those delicious tastings, and being a small company, last-minute cancels are impossible to refill. So, please be sure before you book!
