Review of "Tour 3" by Extreme Tornado Tours

General review

Tour 3, 2019 was a great experience. The guides at ETT were extremely professional while also having fun and joking around during down times. There was a great balance here. I rode with Nick, and he would explain all sorts of things we were seeing, why they were like that, and why we were chasing or avoiding them. During stops, Kevin, Blake, and Ashleigh were always telling us about this or that, talking about past storms, what they were thinking about current storms and such. Very friendly, very funny, very fun. I learned a lot on this tour. We saw a great tornado in Charlie, Texas. The team tracked it carefully and knew exactly where to put us. A phenomenal experience. We also saw some incredible super cells with stunning structure, and some additional distant, but short tornados. They were on point with the storms. We always stayed at very nice, clean hotels. My biggest concern with hotels is cleanliness, and I had no issues with any of them. The lowest grade hotel we stayed at was a Model 6 one night out of necessity, and it was completely fine. All the other hotels were the kind I'd book for my other vacations. I can't wait to chase with ETT again in the future.

Vehicle review:

ETT's vans were fantastic. The seats were very comfortable, and very roomy (one van had individual seats, and one had rows that would normally seat three people, but was limited to two so all guests can have a window seat and room beside them for their personal things). We had power outlets the same as we have at home, so power was never an issue for my devices. The A/C had personal vents, so I could direct the air right at me, or close my vent. I was concerned about being too hot in the vans, but I was very comfortable. Riding in the vans was always fun. And when the rides were long, we had options like movies or video games on the TVs, or just relaxing with our own personal entertainment/sleeping.

Tour guide review:

ETT's service to their guests was top notch. They truly cared about our experience and safety. We would stop for lunch and dinner at various places, getting a full gamut of quick eats and nice sit-down meals depending on our schedule, as the storms are always the priority. They were great about briefing us at the end of the day, and the following mornings, describing what they were seeing, where we were headed, and what to expect. Now that I'm back home, all I want to do it get back in the vans and chase. I can't describe enough how fantastic my experience was. I'll never forget it.
