General review

I gotta say this was the best adventure I've been on in my life. If you've ever seen the movie Twister...it's just like that minus the maps because they on our phones and laptops. We got to chase storms from West Kansas down to the West Texas oil fields and to Southern Oklahoma along the Red River. Here's a few of the things our tour got to see: storms forming off of the Rocky Mountains, the Twistex Memorial in El Reno, The Big Texan Steak Ranch & Brewery, supercells, Orphan Anvils, Hail-cores, Dust Devils, Prairie Dogs, a Rattlesnake, lots of lightning, the Red River, etc. One of the best things that came out of the trip was the camaraderie among the tour guests and guides. A lot of us formed friendships that didn't end with the trip. I could tell by the end of the first day that I was going to come back for another tour. I will caution those going on the trip for the first time that you won't see tornadoes every day (if you do consider yourself very lucky). Mother Nature is unpredictable and can change very quickly. We covered a lot of miles just to position ourselves for storms and sometimes it worked out and sometimes it didn't. Our tour didn't get our tornadoes until the end of our tour which was the highlight to cap-off our trip.

Tour guide review

I was very happy with our Tour Director Nick Drieschman, and guides Ashley, Blake, and Kevin. They made safety a priority with a system set up for getting out of the vans while observing severe weather. Anytime we had questions about weather, or the storms we were chasing they were more than happy to answer them. As someone who puts together Fishing, Kayaking, and Mountain Biking trips all over the country I can appreciate the hard work that Nick, Ashley, Blake, and Kevin put into this trip. It's not easy doing what they do, especially when Mother Nature decides to throw us a curve ball. There were storms that didn't produce tornadoes, but they ended up putting storms that had spectacular views of supercells, lightning, hail, and monsoon-like rains.

Vehicle review

Our vans were in good shape and took us all over KS, OK, and TX with no issues. Seats were comfortable for with plenty of space and they even had plugins in the back to charge our phones & laptops.

General review

Tour was everything I expected. Guides got us to storms. Saw 1 tornado. Many supercell cloud formations. Van was comfortable and had electrical outlets to recharge electronics.

Tour guide review

Nick and his guides all were very professional. Always keeping us informed of what was transpiring during the tour. I never felt we were in harm's way. Always had great motels to stay in. And of course, excellent restaurants to eat in.

General review

Our tour got to see several amazing weather scenarios. They did a great job of getting us to what they thought would bring the best experiences! From hail, a couple of tornadoes and one up close, to amazing lightning set ups, and also saw a mothership formation.

Tour guide review

The guides were amazing. Always making sure we had something to do even on a down day. The places we stayed at were great and they really went above and beyond to make the whole trip worth while!

Vehicle review

They always made the best out of any situation we came on. They really tried their hardest to get us to the best set ups and kept us safe. We stopped often for bathroom breaks and stretching and always ate some of the best food around!
