Greater London, United Kingdom

Our tour begins at St. John Bakery where we’ll try their delicious doughnuts to get the tour started off right. From there, we’ll walk up Borough High Street stopping along the way to talk a bit about history, restaurants, pubs, and anything else we feel like chatting about. Our second stop is right near Borough Market, one of the oldest public markets in London, where we’ll sample some more amazing donuts. Make sure you pace yourself - it’s a marathon, not a sprint. Our third stop is actually in Borough Market itself where you’ll sample some absolutely stunning doughnuts that are made fresh every day in their pastry school. And our last and final stop at Crosstown Doughnuts will give you a jaw dropping view of Tower Bridge that you have to see to believe. We’re so excited to get this tour started and we hope you can join us!

What a great and tasty tour. Our Guide Dan was witty and personable. The tour was filled with scrumptious Donuts and interesting historical facts. I would highly recommend this tour. My two teenage daughters are still comparing the donut flavours. We also loved all the Borough Market tips and cheese samples.

We've lived in London for several years and hadn't realized we could combine history and doughnuts on a tour. Our guide, Dan, was great -- he was easy to talk to, and it ended up being just our group on the tour, which allowed us to move around at our desired pace. It was nice being shown around Borough Market and learning the history of an area we've been to a ton but barely scratched the surface of. It was also smart that there was minimal pressure to actually finish off four full doughnuts in two hours. We had evening dessert and breakfast the next day covered. All the doughnuts were tasty and creative; we'll seek the the shops out when in the neighborhood. Would recommend!

The 2hr tour starts off near Borough Market and you get to visit four tasty donut shops. You’ll get to try a donut from each store of course. On the tour you’ll get to know about the history of the stores and also London history too. The bf and I loved it and had such an amazing fun time. Our tour guide Oscar was so lovely, 10/10! He gave us lots of donut recommendations, interesting London history and even sneaked in a dad joke haha! I would honestly do this all over again. Definitely be recommending to anyone visiting London and also to all the Londoners too. The donuts were all really good in their own ways. Definitely something for everyone. My personal favourite was the St John’s Chocolate doughnut. I’m normally not a chocolate doughnut person but our tour guide Oscar was highly recommending it so I had to try. This is the best chocolate doughnut I’ve ever eaten. The chocolate filling is so light like a mousse and dough is like a cloud.

Super fun—borough market was amazing. Saw some hidden gems we would have missed if on our own. How can you beat donuts and London? Our guide Oscar was awesome!

We had a great time! Our group was big, but the guides Oscar and Daniel gave us a fantastic tour! All donuts were yummy and the facts/history on the way were a great bonus!

We had a great selection of donuts to choose from. It was a light walking tour around the historic area of London Bridge. We actually got to learn some interesting historical and architectural fact, while eating some very tasty donuts. Overall we spent a very pleasant morning! Definitely make sure you are hungry when you attend but I am sure you will have leftovers to enjoy later.

My partner and I went for a Sunday tour on a very predictably overcast and rainy day, however were soon distracted by all the deliciousness this tour offers! Oscar was a fantastic guide that sprinkled the perfect amount of donut facts with historical facts while we trotted around London Bridge (a lot of the history was new to me even after living here for a number of years) I am still in awe at how spoiled you get on this tour - 4 whole donuts! Needless to say, we were extremely thankful for the goody bags to bring the leftovers home. Oscar has also made some highly valuable friends in Borough market, perfect for when you need to cleanse your palette with some savoury treats. Would recommend 10/10.

We recently went on this doughnut tour and it was so much fun. We ate delicious doughnuts and learnt about the background of each bakery (there was 4 in the tour) and the surrounding area. Our tour guide Oscar was very bubbly, knowledgeable, attentive and funny. We learnt many interesting facts from Oscar that we didn’t know. We couldn’t ask for a better tour guide. Thank you Oscar! You made our day!

We had a great tour with Oscar, we enjoyed all the doughnuts, we got to try and interesting information/stories that Oscar told us along the way. I would definitely recommend to those who like walking tour but also love Doughnuts :)

Went for a Saturday tour with my partner and had a lovely time being taken around London by bubbly Oscar (and Dan who was "in training" but already felt like a pro). All four donut spots were delicious, but also brilliantly chosen for their history and differences. Sometimes we ate while walking, other times we sat at some calm city spots to enjoy the view. While my partner finished all his donuts, I appreciated the take-home baggies for the ones I could only fit a bite of, plus the bits and pieces we picked up walking through the homely Borough Markets. Overall it was the perfect level of walking given how much we ate - and I'd highly recommend doing this activity with a dog or group of friends. Thanks Oscar and Dan!
