General reviewWhat 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

General reviewWithout 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.
Tour guide reviewThere 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.
Vehicle reviewVan 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
