There is a reason Readers Tours attract ‘Adventurous Seniors’.

Our itineraries are bold and colourful, so are our tour guides.
We drive scenic roads and coastal highway and have luxury accommodation waiting after a big day. We offer excursions such as Helicopter rides and guided walks and have everything organised down to the last meal, with free newspapers for a spot of reading or challenging sudoku.

We are passionate about bringing like-minded individuals together to explore this beautiful landscape we call our backyard and are ready to go full steam ahead with our next tour the moment it is safe to do so.

For now, we will continue to bring you stunning photography, travel stories and helpful tips during these unprecedented times.

Our team remains dedicated to helping you, so please pick up the phone or fill out our contact form and we will be in touch. We look forward to you joining us and experiencing New Zealand like never before.

What if you don't have WhatsApp?

The Team from Neighbourhood Support New Zealand

"We are now entering a time where families are separated into individual household bubbles and unable to communicate and interact the way they normally do. Our neighbours are the ones who can step up and help."

A little challenge for my neighbours...

Sarah Neighbourly Lead from Remuera

When I was growing up things were tough for my Mum who had to work as a cleaner to support my brother and I.

When I was growing up things were tough for my Mum who had to work as a cleaner to support my brother and I.

When I decided a couple of years ago to find a cleaner myself, it never felt entirely comfortable for me - but at the same time, I also felt happy I could give someone else a little work. 

I heard today that most of my cleaner's customers have cancelled - or she's cancelled out of respect for the alert level. 

So I guess this is a small challenge for my neighbours...

I know our world is changing very fast right now, but if you can afford to, please consider continuing to pay your loyal cleaner / babysitter / gardener etc. Even if it's just a partial payment as a gesture. 

Obviously they won't be able to carry out your service - but maybe when the world is back to normal your house will end up extra sparkly one day or you'll find a new pot plant on your doorstep.

I appreciate this won't be possible for some but those of you doing this already, thanks for spreading kindness.

I'm not sure what we would have done if Mum's income was cut off when we were little.

And hot tip: good cleaners, babysitters and gardeners are all in hot demand on Neighbourly so looking after them now might mean someone else doesn't pinch them from you in the future - ha!

(Ironically I now regularly drive and walk past the beautiful giant house she used to clean on Remuera Road. I reckon they still have a cleaner 😂).

Free shopping service

Nikoleta from Grafton

Hi,

My partner and I are in our late 20s/early 30s and healthy. I work from home and my partner was sent home with no work as he usually works in hospitality. That means he is mostly free during the day and we thought to offer if anyone needs or knows anyone who needs in the next 4 weeks for us to… View more
Hi,

My partner and I are in our late 20s/early 30s and healthy. I work from home and my partner was sent home with no work as he usually works in hospitality. That means he is mostly free during the day and we thought to offer if anyone needs or knows anyone who needs in the next 4 weeks for us to do shopping for them and deliver it.
We wish everyone all the best in these uncertain times. Take care everyone

Be Safe and Stay Healthy

Dovetail Restorations Ltd

Yesterday was definitely one of the wildest days I think anyone of us has experienced.

We worked until 10:00 pm last night to have as much items ready and delivered, and we will do so until level 4 is put into place. We recognise how important it is now for you to have your dining set or bed frame or cabinet at this time, as it would not be comfortable without these in daily life. It would be unacceptable for us not to return these to you at this time. We’re grateful for our government for making this call, and in assisting us to make sure our people are paid and looked after. Our team is truly a family, and we assure you, we are doing everything in our power to retain our staff.

Although our workshop will be closed until it is safe to open, FRET NOT—we understand that now that ALL your time will be spent at home, that accidents will happen: chairs will be broken, kids will ‘accidentally’ draw or paint on tables. We will still be making assessments via email. Provide photos of the damage and we will answer you with the best path forward. We are here, and we are together (just not physically)

ALSO get ready to see some of our misadventures at home and get some insight as to how we lead our lives outside of the workshop. Feel free to share your lockdown projects as well! Take care of yourself and your family.

Kia Kaha, Avi & Dovetail xx
