General reviewAlmost every summer for the past 13 years I take 1 week out of my summer to go storm chasing. I have been with several different companies over the years. For the past 3 years I have chosen to go with Extreme Chase Tours and definitely plan to go with them again next year. I have been extremely pleased with every aspect of the tour. My experience with Extreme Chase Tours has exceeded my expectations. Lanny goes out of his way to make sure each and every guest is comfortable. The one thing that always stands out for me is how much he truly cares about his guests. He literally goes into the hotel rooms and personally checks them out before we stay anywhere. While all of the staff is very down to earth and friendly, they maintain a great deal of professionalism. There have been a few occasions when the weather was just not cooperating and we have a few “down days”. During those days, Lanny made sure we were occupied doing something fun or educational.
Tour guide reviewI cannot say enough good things about the tour guides that I have had with Extreme Chase Tours over the years. Lanny, Eric and Chad have been absolutely awesome! Even on the non-weather days…..we had soooooo much fun.
Vehicle reviewThe vehicle is very comfortable which is so important when on some days you can be in there for 10 or more hours. The thing I like most about Extreme Chase Tours is the personal attention. I have never had an experience with them where it was too crowded in the van.

General reviewExtreme Chase Tours certainly lived up to it's name over the two weeks I was in the USA. We travelled across many states, saw so many amazing things, visited and met some fantastic people and saw 6-7 tornadoes! During the first week there wasn't supposed to be any weather at all, so our hopes certainly weren't high! However, after travelling to Nebraska, my Father and I literally stood right below a huge, rumbling, rotating Mothership Supercell - which inevitably produced a tornado. Over the course of the next two weeks we saw hundreds of supercells, wall clouds, tornado warnings, beautiful lightening and tornadoes themselves!! Everything was very professional - with Lanny Dean always knowing what was going on with the weather at every second. In the mornings we were always briefed about what was happening for the day - and why we were going where we were going. Every room we stayed in was carefully checked over by Lanny himself, and whenever there was time to sit down and have a nice meal - we were able to do so. Despite not having as much luck with the weather as you would expect on an average May week - every bit of weather that was produced... we were there before it even happened.
Tour guide reviewWhere do I even begin... Lanny Dean is one of the most dedicated and wonderful people I have ever met in my life. He was up all night running weather scans and making sure he found something, ANYTHING for us to chase. Even during a week where there was 'no weather' around - he had us right below a huge, tornado producing supercell. He took the time to explain everything he was talking about - so that by the time you left, you were using the correct verbiage without even realising it! My Father and I had the please of Morris and Alexis helping Lanny with the driving - and they were just amazing. So many laughs were had, that despite the gas station food... i'm pretty sure I've come home with a 6-Pack! Lanny and his family have become our family in America. We travelled all the way from Australia and they were just so warm and welcoming that we didn't want to leave (hence why we ended up staying two weeks). If you want a personal, amazing tour - with honesty, and great people... then choose Extreme Chase Tours. You won't find another tour operator with more heart and passion that Lanny Dean.
Vehicle reviewDad and I rode in two vehicles over the two weeks and both were equally comfortable and well equipped! Room for bags, drinks, food, legs - it was an easy way to travel!
