    A taste of the old and the new

    This was a really fun experience. Great way to see the city and enjoy sweet treats. I enjoyed a little bit of history that was given around each donut shop and about the city as well. It was most definitely a memorable time.

    Tips for improving

    3 tips: (1) too much filler/ extra walking for no reason other than to fill 2 hours. (2) tour guide needs to bring paper plates. Eating on dingy napkins is just jenky. (3) don’t make strangers cut and share donuts. This is not a school trip. Buy enough for everyone AND let them select their own. Otherwise the people at the end of the line don’t get any choice- they are stuck with what the leader selected and no one else wanted. Having to cut and share donuts just reeks of cheapness. This tour costs enough that they can afford everyone to pick their own donuts and not share.

    This tour seems mostly to be Neil's creation, and it's hard not to respect his enthusiasm. I think he's still getting the hang of it, and some of his facts are better than others, suffice it to say. The donut portions are generous, that said. And if you're traveling with kids, they'll eat up the "certified donut afficionado" thing, too. Overall, great and extremely personable tour guide and tasty donuts. Don't hesitate.
