    General review

    Incredible experience that I will never forget. Erik and Adam put us on the storm's that delivered the most amazing structures and lightning and even though we didn't see a tornado this time, they certainly showed us storms that didn't disappoint!. They definately have the knowledge and the instinct to get us on the right storms. Had a great time with the small group which by the end felt like family and I have made friends for life.The tour was very professional and was made welcome from before the tour even started due to the great communication by Erik.I didn't mind the long hours in the car at all, Erik and Adam made us laugh and have fun. Looking forward to coming back for another tour!

    Tour guide review

    They did a lot of researching every night to make sure they got us into the right position and when there were no storms predicted, they made sure we were happy and did other activities that we all enjoyed. They had a great sense of humour and you could see how passionate they are about chasing and it made the experience that much better

    Vehicle review

    The van was comfortable to travel in, plenty of leg room. Well set up to be able to enter and exit quickly and safely. Enjoyed watching the screen in the back to follow what they were discussing about the storm's. Great being able to control the temperature in the back by ourselves.

    General review

    Go with these guys! They know their stuff - everything you ever wanted to know about tornadoes, supercells, thunderstorms, lighting, anything meteorological at all. It was not just educational but very entertaining - the discussions, the storm chasing, the sighseeing when there weren't storms to chase. It really pays off if your guides are good at analyzing the weather - and Erik and Adam are the best. They would spend early morning hours and after hours pouring over data when the rest of us were sleeping. In one instance, the other storm chasers decided to go south which turned out to be a bust. We stayed north and viewed a storm on which 3 tornado warnings were issued! On another chase we had a lighting show for 3.5 hours - it was amazing.

    Tour guide review

    As previously noted, Erik and Adam really know weather and meteorology and their instincts are excellent. As you can imagine, it's difficult to figure out which storm to chase when there are 6 or 7 developing in the state but their decisions were invariably correct. We saw the best stuff out there even if it wasn't a tornado. And in the off hours, we toured some very interesting volcano sites,rock canyons, and parts of the Rockies. Your in the care for a long time so its important to be with people that have a good sense of humor and are fun to talk to - Erik and Adam fill that bill,

    Vehicle review

    Vehicle was great - roomy and we had our own computer screen to watch all the radar and other data sites that the tour guides were analyzing. This was an important part - there were only 4 of us on the tour plus the two guides so we could pretty much do whatever we wanted and go wherever we wanted because there was no need to coordinate with 20 people! You should keep this in mind as you consider what tour to select.

    General review

    Each of us were met at the airport upon our arrival and taken to our hotel by the Tornadic Expeditions before we started our tour the following morning. Both Erik Burns, the tour owner, and Adam Cuker, his co-director, were extremely professional and knowledgeable about storm formations and the best conditions for a tornado to occur. Because we were a small group, only 4 guests and 2 directors, we could easily change our plans to accommodate the weather, be flexible in eating arrangements, and book rooms at the last minute for the small group. I would definitely travel with Tornadic Expeditions again.

    Tour guide review

    Our two tour director, Erik Burns, and his co-director, Adam Cuker, were knowledgeable about the storms and constantly analyzed the data to determine the best location for us to be for the near and long term to see a severe thunderstorm and hopefully a tornado. Unfortunately, we did not see any tornadoes, but we we saw many supercell thunderstorms including a 3.5 hour continuous lightning show. There were 2 days of no storm activity in The Plains, so Erik Burns took us to many interesting spots to sightsee instead, including a national park and a national monument. As a result, every day was full of adventures.

    Vehicle review

    We traveled in a small van which was kept clean and had a mirrored screen pointed towards the passengers so we could see everything the tour directors were looking at on their laptop trying to analyze the data in real time for the best position to chase storms. This allowed us to ask them many questions on what they were seeing and what it meant. The van also had wifi so each of us could connect a device to access the internet and enough power outlets to recharge our internet devices and cameras, too. There were 4 passengers travelling with Erik and Adam, the two tornado chasing experts taking us storm chasing. We each had a window seat and room to keep our personal day stuff with us.
