MAXimal Tours Friends,
Here an update about the current situation
Max is still in Germany, he is not able to go back to the US in the moment, because of the travel ban.
Dave our US tour manager is running the business in the United States right now.
We don’t know about other motorcycle tour companies but MAXimal Tours will survive this crisis 100%. It was a wise decision to work with BMW and Hertz and not relying on the tour business alone. WE and YOU will tour again very soon.
First with the current situation with Covid-19 and the social distancing that we need to performing I think that it is in all of our best interest to do this update via email and the website at this time.
First, the scouting trip to Spain went off fantastically and this trip will actually rival the Alps trip for its beauty, roads, scenery, hotels, food and of course the people that you will meet. Martin, Harald and Max were really excited about this trip and with the help of Hertz Ride the motorcycles we would be using are going to be fantastic! Nothing older than 6 months for any of the rental bikes that we would be using.
However; with the Covid-19 situation it leaves us with a very difficult and hard decision to make at this time. This is absolutely the worst case scenario that Maximal Tours has seen in 10 years!
With that being said:
Europe is pretty much on a complete lock down with Spain being one of the hardest hit.
Hotel, restaurants are all closed and people aren’t even allowed to be in the streets.
No flights as of right now
No motorcycles available as everything is closed or closing.
Maximal Tours is NOT going to cancel this tour, but we are going to have to postpone it to a different time!
SPAIN NEW DATE MARCH 13 2021 – March 25 2021
With the new date determined, your flights can be changed to dates appropriate with the new tour dates.
Your applications and deposits will remain intact and to be used for the new date.
Maximal Tours hates to do this, but with the current global situation it leaves us with little leeway to make these difficult decisions.
The Big Foot Tour has already been cancelled and we are having to look at the Alps tour for August very carefully to see if this will be affected as well with Italy in very bad shape.
If there are flights to Europe available and the situation is better we have many alternate routes to go around Northern Italy.
We want to make sure that everyone is doing well and your safety and well being is very important to us.
Please stay safe and as always reach out to us with any concerns that you have and we will do our very best to work through this together.
Max, Regine, Martin, Harald and Dave
Your Maximal Tours team

Motorcycle Tours with Maximal Tours
We organize your motorcycle tours in the USA, Europe and South America
Somehow you have found our website by accident or perhaps you are interested in learning about a motorcycle tour and /or other U.S. travel. No matter what reason, we are glad that you found us!
Regine and Max Krammel own and run our unique motorcycle tour business.
Interesting life circumstances have brought us to our home in Pensacola, Florida from our original birthplaces in the Bavarian region of Germany. Max was transferred with the German Air Force to Naval Air Station Pensacola in March 2005 since then we have lived in the US.
Regine accompanies our tours and is also a licensed fitness trainer. Currently she works as a recreation aid for MWR NAS Pensacola. Throughout our tours, Regine ensures that our guests are introduced to a variety of culinary delights that enrich the stereotypical food. She finds the right local places in all our host countries.
We have an accompanying van driver throughout every tour to transport anything that does not fit onto a motorcycle. Our tour participants will find an all-around holiday package.
Max organizes all of the tours as a tour guide throughout Europe, the United States and Ecuador. As a result of his career activity in the German Air Force he know logistics. Max was in charge for his troops while German pilots received flight training in Pensacola. During this time and into the present day, Max has made many friends and contacts here in the USA and from all over the world who participated in MAXimal Tours. Because of his travel experience, the tour participant is offered a first-hand impression of the culture and country in every MAXimal tour.
From the beginning, we have believed that it is essential to integrate ourselves into the lifestyles and cultures of our host country. We have found that Germany and the USA have quite a lot in common. We are very proud to be an American Company with German American guides.
One of the biggest highlights of living here has been our meeting with the Apollo moon program astronauts. We took a page out of their book and so we too can fly, fly, fly on our bikes.
Finally, we wish you a lot of fun while visiting our website. We hope that we were able to generate interest in our motorcycle tours so you will consider MAXimal tours for your next vacation in the United States, Europe or South America.
Best Wishes and Good Health,
Regine and Max
