Rolling with Erik and Adam from Tornadic Expeditions was nothing short of an amazing experience! It was great to be on tour with people who appreciate everything about weather just as much as we, the guests, do. We got to see it all - Amazingly structured super cells, mezmerizing lightning, huge hail and - most importantly - several tornadoes, on the first and the last day, amongt them one beautiful, fully condensed tornado that was on the ground for 10 minutes with a great rope-out! Even on the off days when there was nothing going on in the sky, Erik and Adam did all they could to keep the guests entertained and make it worth their while. On the chase days, you could really tell that they live for this and that they want to see Tornadoes just as much as all of the guests do. Great commitment! THANK YOU FOR AN AMAZING TRIP!
Tornadic Expeditions use a small 6-seat van, that is 2 Tour Operators and 4 guests. Very comfortable, cosy vehicle. Equipped with an extra screen for the guests/passengers in the back seats, which enables them to follow what's going on in the weather models and/or to watch movies/other forms of entertainment on down days. As a guest from abroad, it was very convenient to have WiFi access on the van and to be able to go online with it. Also, they provide a large USB hub in the back area of the van, so all guests can charge their phones, cameras, laptops and whatnot at all times. I would advise anyone rolling with Tornadic Expeditions to not bring too much luggage, as the space in the trunk is somewhat limited, but definitely enough to accommodate luggage for a one-week or 10-day tour.
Tour guide review:
Erik and Adam were very professional. They ensured that all guests were safe, comfortable and entertained. Extremely nice guys who will answer all of your questions any time with a great deal of expertise - these people know what they are talking about and are VERY skillful when it comes to finding the right spot to watch severe weather. Also, very chill and cool guys to hang out with after a long chase day!
