General review

Amazing, epic and fun! Your once in a lifetime experience begins with Peter Wharton and his talented drivers. Would highly recommend as our chase partner of choice! 3 tornadoes in 1 afternoon…and so much more...

Tour guide

Peter never tired of placing us in the best possible position every single day. The only agenda you will get with Peter is to chase.

We have always found Peter to be accommodating and considerate of our needs. He will give back to you as much as you put into your experience.

Vehicle

Top notch.

General review

Day 1 one of this Tour provided a textbook example of super cell development from it's genesis to anvil formation at 52,000'. Three tornadoes were observed that afternoon, including the Carney Wedge.

No effort was spared to provide the Tour with the best opportunities for severe weather observation.

On the occasional "blue sky" day spent positioning for the next weather event, opportunities were taken see some of the natural and historic features of the Great Plains.

Overall, a very experienced and professional operation based on comprehensive understanding and analysis of severe weather and its origins.

Tour guide

Tour Guide Peter Wharton openly shared his views on the day's data analysis and his strategy for making the most of the opportunities. This made the experience both informative and satisfying.

In addition, Peter was ever mindful of the group's comfort - even including a morning run to Starbuck's.

Vehicle

The vehicle was comfortable, with each member of the Tour occupying a window seat.

General review

I'd just like to say that I've always had a great experience when chasing with StormGroup Chasers. Peter is an experienced storm spotter and leader getting us on great storms while keeping safety a priority. Having a love for photography, most photo opportunities are accommodated as long as it doesn't interfere with the timing of the chase.

For anyone who is interested in the technical aspects of targeting sever weather, Peter is eager to share his knowledge. SGC tours are unique in that it is a small group. We are able to get to know one another, unlike some tour companies who have larger groups of people. By the end of the week you will have made lifelong friends as well as have a camera full of great memories.

Vehicle

The vehicle was comfortable and everyone has a window seat.

General review

What an awesome experience! I saw seven funnel clouds and four tornados, as well as several supercell thunderstorms and fantastic lightning shows. Our team enjoyed several days of intense storm action complemented with beautiful views. Highlighted by our half-day chase of the Canadian, TX, tornado; we had great success in identifying and tracking storms. We had an outstanding group; the group was so fun and warm that it became a major plus of the tour - I would have had a great time if we had never seen a storm - and we saw storms! Bottom line - the tour was well-organized, well-led, and super fun; I heartily recommend StormGroup Chasers.

Tour guide

Peter Wharton is an outstanding guide. He knows the science of storm chasing as well as people. This is a passion for Peter and it shows. Peter educates and is very generous in passing on his knowledge. He also focuses on the total experience; from compatibility of the crew, to places to eat and things to see - he makes sure all have fun. Peter has great intuition to go along with the science - if there was action - we were there, and sometimes ahead of it.

Vehicle

We made our trip in a Chevrolet Suburban. With six in the vehicle, it was perfect for storm chasing. It was quite comfortable with excellent visibility from all positions. The middle row enjoyed better visibility and was somewhat more comfort than the back. We swapped seats every day to assure everyone got time in the better (again - all seats were good) seats.
