General review

The weather setup for this tour was not very good, we had the infamous Omega Block against us for the 6 days of the tour. Still, ETT tour guides managed to get the best out of what was available within reach for us during those days: a few supercells, giant hail, some amazing lightning shows and a supercell with a massive wall cloud that was very close to produce a tornado. Everything, from booking the tour to the goodbyes felt professional, clear, and safe. It is obvious ETT has been running tours for many years! I have been chasing with a majority of the tour companies in the market and ETT is definitely a top tier tour company. That shows, when you have very little weather to play with - and the tour guests are still content all of the time. Read my blog review for some more detail.

Vehicle review:

ETT runs the same Ford vans as every other larger tour companies I have been on. They are not bad, but they are not super comfortable either. It just is what it is.

Tour guide review:

I was in the same van all the time, so my tour guides were Trey and Alec. Nick was not on this particular tour. It should be noted that ETT has the youngest tour guides I have chased with, but there is nothing wrong with their experience (with hundreds of bagged tornadoes in their CV). They were knowledgeable, decisive and took good decisions every day, to the best of my knowledge.
