General review

I had a great time and felt that they took our safety seriously. I learned a tremendous amount and found the accommodations were comfortable. We saw some fantastic storms! They were quite upfront that they were following the current published COVID protocols, which was no masking. They were also upfront that they did not check vaccination status etc. Many of our van came home with COVID. It would have been reassuring to know if they began testing the incoming group as some were staying on. I felt our tour group as a whole should have been informed that several had ended up sick and COVID+, letting them know they had likely been exposed.

Tour guide review

Great! Knowledgeable and pleasant.

Vehicle review

The vans were quite basic but functional. We had enough room, they were clean, and felt safe. There are no head rests for the rows of bench seats in the back. The charging plugs are on the left side of each seat section. They worked but were pretty slow. I’d recommend bringing a portable battery bank to have back up power.

General review

I chased on the Lecture Tour (T8) in 2018. I felt that we all got to know each other well, were always in the loop with what was going on with every guest always in the same van as Roger, and we all bonded well which is important when we have to watch out for each other in the middle of storms. I went on another small tour the prior with another company, and had a similar intimately positive experience, for the most part. It’s unfortunate that the tours are the size that they are during the prime season, but understandable since so many people do want to chase during that time. The lecture tour was in June, so during a time when there were fewer chasers on the road. So except for the day of the Prospect Valley tornado when everyone seemed to be out, it was only a few times when we encountered other chasers on the road which was a plus. This year I will chase (twice) in two larger groups, so I’ll be able to compare more accurately. But based on my current knowledge and the feedback I received from one guest who exclusively goes on the SLT lecture tour now, if you try a smaller tour with SLT, there will probably be zero negatives to the experience (although I do agree about the vans possibly being more comfortable – but nothing that I found too bothersome). Smaller groups also could lead to problems if any guests have issues with each other – nowhere to hide like on a big tour! But I have yet to encounter that. For the most part, those I’ve met on commercial storm chases have tried their best to get along with each other.
