Review of "Tour 4" by Extreme Tornado Tours

General review

My wife and I lived my dream in May 2016. Travelling from the UK. I have followed storms all my life ( not literally) and chose extreme tornado tours because of the links with Reed Tiimmer although not exclusively because of this. My wife was worried she would be the only female and us the only Brits, not the case it was about 50/50 men women and about 7 Brits, some of who were veterans and chased before with ETT. I have to say it was the most amazing experience, we chased every day seeing some tornados and mega lightening storms. The ETT team were fantastic and made everybody feel welcome. Everything was explained before during and after, they really knew what they were doing. Storms and tornadoes are not guaranteed so dont expect them, the guys do their upmost to travel a lot of miles to get you the action. I definitely recommend ETT and once both of our daughters weddings are paid for we will be going again. Nick is a really nice guy. If you get scared in dangerous weather and driving situations then its not for you. You dont start the day till late on but can end up not getting back until early hours. Food can be on the go but they stopped at decent places when they could. All the hotel or motels we stayed at were good but its short notice so might not be top notch. When chasing it was important to listen when to stay or go. There are lots of photo opportunities and toilet stops.

Vehicle review:

In one of two vans with USB chargers for phones GoPro etc. We swapped around so we got to spend time with all the team members and tour guests.

Tour guide review:

We had Nick and Bart as main tour guides but also Brayden and Kevin. Each brought a different dimension to the tour and all had brilliant interaction skills.
