WHY CHASE WITH EXTREME CHASE TOURS
If you are wondering why you should storm chase with us, well there is a plethora of reasons. But to really answer that question, it's important to know what makes us different from the rest. While there are a number of tour companies, there is no other tour company that is as personal as we are. But of more importance is to note that any legitimate storm chasing tour company should have commercial insurance. If they don't - they are simply NOT a legitimate business. And It is VERY important to be wary of, and stay away from those kinds of "storm chasing tours companies" ! Those storm tour companies that don’t operate within the law, no matter what kind of an armada or fleet of storm chasing vaction tour vehicles they have, they are indeed operating their storm chasing tours illegally!
Before we even began our tornado chasing vacations, we obtained commercial insurance back in 1999! Any tour company that is legit, will have insurance. We have outlined some additional reasons you should chase with us below but if at any time, you have questions, please CONTACT us. To find the tour that fits your schedule, please see our TOUR SCHEDULE page and then check out or our STORM CHASING TOUR DESCRIPTION page for all tours as it will possibly help to give you an idea of the tornado potential and locations we may be chasing at for any particular tour.
