Weather adventures provided me with an exceptionally professional service. Hitting every major storm during the 2 weeks. The tour guides are veteran chasers forecasters and photographers.
All of our tour ended up extended our stays. Some for a few days and some for another entire tour. The team worked around us to make sure we all had a great time and having been on other tour operators i can say these guys were the best. The small groups of 6 (although the owners used to handle 14+ people) is a great size for chasers as it's very easy to get going when required without spending time loading up.
I can not commend these guys enough. Give them a go! You won't be disappointed.
The tour guides were always willing to go above and beyond for the tour guests. They got us to the positions we needed to get our photos and videos. Driving us from the mexico border to Canada in 3 days. That is commitment!
They would also make sure all guests were comfortable and happy. They would share their knowledge and if they could help us with our footage they would step in as assistants. They would make sure we were safe but close to the storms.
Take us to get supplies if a guest was missing something even after we had finished for the days.
Brand new air-conned vehicle. Plenty of power points for everyone. WIFI is available when we were in service which was most of the time.

Without a shadow of a doubt the best Stormchasing Tour Group out there. I stayed for two back-to-back tours this year and ended up extending my stay the last time I chased with them. I have chased with other people but Weather Adventures tops them all. I would now never chase with anyone else.
Weather Adventures were always on the most severe storms and knew how to forecast which storms stood the best chance of turning tornadic. Whilst the chances of seeing a tornado is obviously very much dependent on the weather, because of Weather Adventures I saw 14 tornadoes during this chase season. They really did get us on the best storms. Even on days when there were severe-warned storms but no tornadoes, Weather Adventures enabled guests to witness, experience and learn about incredible storm structure and other weather phenomena.
Guests were provided with many photo opportunities which is awesome. If we saw good structure or a rainbow we wanted a photo of, the Tour Guides found a safe place to pull over so we could snap the photo!
Inbetween storms, the Tour Guides made sure that we had fun and got to sight-see as well, which is just as important. There was honestly never a dull moment. All entry fees to National Parks etc. are paid for. Aside from weather, I have also learnt about and seen a lot of American Culture which I absolutely love.
The places Weather Adventures took us for meals were awesome as well. Always very decent food and the tour guides know where all the good local, "quirky" places are to eat.
Despite the size of the American Plains, Blake knows it like the back of his hand!
All the hotels we stayed in were very decent, comfortable and accommodating.
Wifi access in the van constantly available and water is always readily available.
There are not enough positive words available in the English Dictionary to express how amazing these Guides are.
They'll always put you first, work SO hard to get you to those storms and are a heap load of fun. They're also very knowledgeable and are more than willing to share this knowledge with you (There's a reason I've never just stayed for one single tour with Weather Adventures!).
The Guides were all very approachable and have taught me invaluable information about severe weather. I can't stress enough how much I have learnt because of them. They're always willing to answer your questions
Tour Guides made sure everyone was looked after and accommodated taking me to Walmart for essential supplies throughout my trip with them.
Van is new. Very spacious for your suitcases, tripods, bags etc. All guests have a window seat and Tour Guides ensure the windows are cleaned spotless at every Gas Station stop!
As stated before, wifi & water always available. Power points also available

What an excellent 2 weeks..
We go to chase some great storms including the Dodge city tornado and the Dickinson Chapman tornados getting us close enough to get great pictures but keeping us safe one of them life events you will never forget.
But its not just the storms why i like chasing with the WA team you are made to feel part of the team and everything is based on your enjoyment. on down days you are treated to parts of the country not normally visited and entry to the national parks. These days can be enjoyed as much as the chase days and is all part of the WA experience. At no time are you guaranteed tornadoes but you are guaranteed a good time
The daily routine is pretty much the same, meeting in the lobby mid morning. followed by a short drive for fuel and to stock up on junk food and a stop at a bar/restaurant for drinks and a meal. At the end of the day another stop somewhere for a meal and then onto the hotel that can sometimes be a good drive away to help get ready for the next day.
All hotels are clean and tidy nearly all have pools and a gym.
If at any time you need anything just ask and the team will be very accommodating and will do everything they can to help.
I have to say that i am looking forward to returning to chase with the Weather adventures group again in the near future...
You will leave with a new bunch of friends
Blake and Drew are great guys who will do anything to help
Drew doing most of the driving. And Blake doing the planning and navigation
Modern very well maintained chevy van with great air con. Looking at what other tour groups use i would say it one of the best out there
